Pretty normal day sales-wise for me, actually.

I think the new Shutterstock Relevancy search has found me irrelevant.   :P

Today I got some buyers from the US as well :). But sales overall are a bit worse than usually (Friday is something in between the week days and weekend sales for me usually).

Kids are off school in the summer, so a lot of people plan vacations around the 4th of July holiday.  I heard on the news that tomorrow is one of the busiest travel days of the year.

Is Tuesday a normal work day or still a holiday?

In the USA we go back to work on Tuesday but as Lisa pointed out many are taking the week off and that is amplified by school being out.

Hi Slovenian, it seems your are a little nervous because of the missing sales. Calm down and look at your sales at the end of the year not at the end of the day ;D.

Tnx :). They aren't that bad, I just missed some from the states ;). I hope they go sky high in September though

Checking your sales in microstock is like weighing yourself...don't do it every day.  :D

Canada has their national day on July 1, so that is another country not at the computers for a long weekend.

Istock was lousy all weekend but my 4th July sales with DT and SS were better than an average Monday.

If that pattern holds with others, it would suggest that iS is dominant in the US/Canada market while DT and SS are selling primarily outside North America. I think we already know that Fotolia is strongest in Germany.
