Nov and Dec. have both been a train wreck for me SS is pitiful, Adobe is at least steady, P5 is decent, VB barley there. Here is too 2019 and better times ahead!

And then I get a $210 video royalty, lol.  Still a terrible month.

Glad the video royalty goosed the numbers a bit, but I agree with the overall picture - SS is not doing as well as it did (for me).

The last three months of the year have always been the peak earners for me, and taking a look at Oct - Dec at SS this year, compared to 2013 (the peak Q4 earnings for me at SS), earnings were down 65% and downloads down 72% from 2013

Q4 this year, AS/FT beat SS - a first for me.

Comparing SS Q4 this year to 2017, earnings were down 48% and downloads down 27%

I have to go back to 2011 (when I was still re-uploading my portfolio after switching back to independence after 3 years as an IS exclusive) to see lower Q4 earnings (although downloads this year are still down 22% on 2011 Q4!)

Bottom line is that SS is still a decent earner, but falling behind itself and AS. It's reminiscent of the switchover from IS being the top earner to SS as #1 many years back. The king is dead; long live the king (as it were)

I have to go back to May 2007 for a worse month at SS - that was when I had ~250 images.

December is the  worst month is SS Ive evperienced since Feb 2014, which was the second month I was on the site.

SS sold 0 video clip for me in December even though I have made into over 1000 list.

Hope to have better luck in the new year.

Happy New Year!

Lowest downloads and earnings in 10 years except for my 1st year, AS beat SS nearly every month which is the only positive. It's the opposite of what I expected would happen with regular uploads.
