I’m extremely thrilled to have my oldest item updated (originally uploaded 3 years ago, in January 2011). For reasons unknown to me i woke up at 7am this morning and spent 12 hours straight working on the new version. I must admit that the satisfaction level is quite high, of course incomparable to getting an item accepted, but still. I’m wondering if this will have any impact on the level of sales.. probably not, given the fact that monthly page views dropped down to roughly 200 a month. I guess i will see in several weeks and use the results as a hint whether issuing updates is worth anything.

I love the feeling, I am soon gonna finish the major update for my seconds wp theme, and it’s massive for me and the theme itself, I know it’s not for the sales.

12 hours? I’ve spent almost a month to completely rewrite one of my first successful themes, even if it had low sales and probably still will have :) Now I have another one to go

I can only wholeheartedly congratulate you for your initiative… and to put things in a better light, think about those “only 200 pageviews” as 200 potential customers that would’ve not purchased the item, as it wasn’t up to date, and that now might just consider doing so :)
