Zooms are at an all-time high and a sale popped in this morning - PU so nothing to get excited about, but I'm hoping the zooms where mine were the only images zoomed mean I'll see a good run of sales this summer. Still battling vertigo (since November) so nothing new to upload, have to work on getting more older images online.

Still slow, only 4 sales this month including two distributor leases, but a $199 direct sale arrived today. Things looking a tad better ( assuming no refund tomorrow...)

Only activity this month has been the refund of April's sale. So not so much slow, more going in reverse.

On par volume wise, but much better averages after opting out of Newspapers

To be fair all the sales I have had here are files I have on microstock sites. Since I have been uploading exclusive images here I have not sold any.

Haven't you only just started uploading exclusively here?

For me, January was awesome with 3 sales and 1 during the first week of February. Since then, maybe 4 zooms and no sales. 

Last year, I didn't sell my first image until April. I was so excited the first month or so of 2017. Been tempted to give up since then, but won't do it. Must have been a freak of nature with those early sales, a couple good $ sales too.

No sales this month, which disappoints me, even though I do have a very small port.

Sales started trickling in for me mid-month, which was encouraging. Low prices, though.
