Hello everybody. I am relatively new to SS with a portfolio of some 180 files. Have you noticed a slowdown during the last one or two days? Also, is January generally a slow month and when is demand expected to pick up again? Thank you.

I have a relatively small port too - you should expect a lot of variation statistically there is not enough data to identify a "trend"

Hello, other opinions? I need some reassuring words that everything is going to be alright  :).

January is usually a slow month. February is better but has less days. Best month for many is March. July & August are slower again. Picks up in September till last week of December.

Thank you. Just got my first sale for the day.. I should stop refreshing the earnings page so often.. more often I am disappointed but that's what happens when you have high hopes.

It's been perfectly normal for me - about the same as last year.

With a port of almost 5,000, you should get much more consistent downloads and not be affected by seasonal trends :). But having under 200 images mostly of macro and nature does not help :).

According to Yuri's excellent Calculator, which I would highly recommend, I'm currently projected to be about 10% up on last January.

I'm happy, although it's my first January with SS (having joined in Feb last year) and my port also is very small (190) so I cant compare to last year, but I was sitting on something like 36 dls when I looked yesterday. I was expecting Jan to be bad so I'm pleased to see it's quite normal.

I haven't looked at your port but you've got to really look at how many diverse topics you have, not # of images. Esp when our ports are this small. keep shooting!

vannphoto, thank you for your reply :). I also have about 40 downloads from the beginning of January so I am happy. Just the last few days were slower compared with the beginning of the month. I was searching for a pattern. Your portfolio is great and images with people are generally downloaded more often. Keep up the good work! :)

That calculator doesn't seem to take into account the generally slow beginning to a new year as people gradually get  back into the swing, so I reckon you'll probably do better than that.
If I plug in the first 10 days of last January at SS, the result that comes out is about 25% lower than I actually made and I think there was only one working day less then. It's still a cool tool.
