The time change (in the U.S.) is too early! It used to be in April and October and now it is March and November. Two fewer months of standard time. People start venturing outside more, spending less time online and earnings start to decline. I do not like this.

If your site is about outdoor activities, you could see a nice increase in earnings, though. Yesterday just set a new all-time high for me for daily earnings. I hate it when the time changes in the fall.

Hard to think that more light is driving people outside when the temperature (here at least) is still down around 10F.

Wow, your "here" must be a lot farther north than my "here."

I see a definite uptick in traffic and earnings at this time of year for my outdoor-activity related sites. Granted, they don't reach their peak until summer is in full swing up north.

Yep, you're a bit farther north than south Florida. :)

It actually takes me by surprise every year to see traffic drop noticeably on my outdoor sites in December and January. Golfing, tennis, swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities are so year-round here, it's easy to forget how much gets shut down up north in the winter.

Despite the time change, it's still winter in parts of the U.S. and it will be a while before we doing anything outside that is not related to winter sports.
