No way this happens on TF :) Good for you! We just experienced 50% drop of income from one week to another. So… a sad end of February and star of April .

Yeah, but you’re an Elite Author. :D

I live in the UK, so I think the closest thing we have to a Tim Tam is a Penguin Bar. If Tim Tams are as good as Penguin Bars, I’ll be in for a treat when I go back to the USA. :)
Hi Blinn! They are indeed very, very similar to Penguins, but I would describe them as half as light, and taste twice as good. Which I guess is why I eat twice as many. ;)

Do you Aussies have Flake bars like we Brits do? :)

Most people would think if you stop making new items regularly, your sales will go down. I’ve noticed something different.

I haven’t uploaded a new item in about 1-2 months, and it’s probably been like that since 2013. Lately, I haven’t updated my portfolio very often. But despite that, my sales are not going down, in fact they’re not even staying still. They’re slowly going up. :)

Last year, my average month yielded about 20 sales for a portfolio of just under 80 sound effects. This year, my portfolio is making about 30 sales a month, and unless I’m mistaken, I’ve only uploaded two new items since the start of 2015.

This was also before the new SFX licensing changes took effect, so that had little effect on the consistency of my monthly sales.

No matter what, I always seem to be moving progressively higher in sales at a fairly slow rate, even if my portfolio stays exactly the same for a long time. I’m now close to my 800th sale, and I have less than 100 items in my portfolio.

I wonder if anyone else has experienced this.

I bought someone a smile!

In other words, I donated $50 to an unsuspecting friend’s Twitch channel during one of his gameplay streams. His reaction in front of 200 live viewers was priceless. :D

If anyone from the Balkans is reading this, tell us what $50 can pay for where you live. My friend is from Zagreb. :)

I spend more time sitting in a day than a Zen monk.

I remember when someone posted a thread called 500 Kitchen Sales. :D

Spam threads, for all their disrepute, have some of the funniest titles ever invented. :D

Think of it this way, now there’s more incentive to buy packs. :)
