It was pretty good month so far. Overall, across the board it might be BME. It just shows how small I am, 2-3 sites do well and I got a record. I need 2 dollars on couple sites to have more records :-) I guess it's to early to celebrate cause it could be one time phenomena but it feels better than recently.

Not BME by a long shot for me.  In fact, unless I have a bunch of EL's over the weekend it looks to be my worst month since last January, and only very slightly better than that.  :(

Exactly the same for me. Bizarrely I doubt that I'm even going to beat December.

Yep, I am over $200 off my December totals too.  :(

I'm a few percent ahead of December thanks to some surprise ELs, with two (weekend) days left to go.

$ = 10% down on December,

about the same as last years January total with 30% more photos.

I have had a good month. Not the best ever but a lot of EL's boosted things. I am 30% up on December. and 20% up on Jan last year.
 SX tanked, but Fotolia flew.
The surprise of the month is Deposit photos with three nice sales and a payout, and I only started uploading there about three weeks ago!

Crappy month for me. About half of Dec's earnings.  :'(

Worst month out of the last 24. $$ earnings are half of Dec '09.

Disclosure: I haven't uploaded anything for over six months.

My last week was pretty good but January was weak for me. Still much better than January 2008 but 30% down compared to last month...

For me, Jan is +$650 over Dec.  Hoping Feb continues the trend...

I'm way off my Dec. total on IS.  Worst month since Dec. 2008.  DT is close to BME.  SS and FT also doing well.

Hold the phone, late run now equal with December now.

I'm also nearly 200$ down on December but up on last January which was my worst month last year.  For some reason January is always worse than December and I have very little Christmas images.

Roughly 600 images (240 on IS).
About 50% increase in royalty compared to Jan2009. About 30% less than my BME. Good overall. Good increase in IS cause i got back to uploading there.

Plan for the future:
- Remove old images from IS
- Increase image quality on IS
- More people shots
- Try to become exclusive on IS

Not great, but better than December (with about $200 perhaps) at all agencies.

BME for me even with super weak numbers at StockXpert, DT, and FT.  Panther came through helping alot with good IS and SS sales.  Still only have around 3-400 images on most sites so results are probably not indicative of overall market.

BME - for 3 of last 4 months - for me, it shows the strength of diversity - usual hi performers like DT have dropped to 4th or 5th, while dormant FT has woken up, and ELs at tiny 123 helped.

my running average tracks with the recession - big dip at end of 2008, then flat for 6 months, since then steady rise

I still need ~$5 to make January my BME. I have been  experiencing a plateau for last 4 months in my microstock earnings despite of regular submissions. I will plot some graphs for my blog tomorrow.

Same here, but not on IS. That is an artifact though since I payed more attention on IS the past 4 months. The global image base is growing fast by the entrance of many new and very good photographers, so just to keep up, your port needs to grow at the same pace or you'll get diluted. It's much easier to double a port of 200 than a port of 2000, statistically spoken, and that's why you will read "BMEs" all over from small but active contributors, while the large contributors seems to report a drawback or stagnancy. It's just statistics: buyers don't seem to grow as fast as contributors.
