Hi guys / gals :) I want to know if december is a good month for new releases, I mean, what’s your experience with december 2008. My first file was approved in june so I don’t know how it’ll be this upcoming holiday month.

I’m about to release a new WordPress theme and I think that I’ll hold it ‘til January.

What are your thoughts? I need to change my mind? ;)

Thanks :)

I think I’ll take it slow in december .. I don’t think it is a good month in term of sales because it’s one of the most expensive month of the year because of christmas and it’s the busyiest time of the year too .. shopping , christmas , new year etc etc …

I don’t expect lot of sales this month :) But I can’t wait for 2010 !!

Yeah, it’ll be slow after Christmas and that’s not good. I’ll release a couple of PSD ’s you know to earn a bit, but a WordPress theme require more work, headaches etc I prefer January for the release.

Thanks guys.
