My January started off precisely where it left December, in a mess, however since many others seemed to be in the same boat I left my code up to see where it went.
The 1st to 16th were horrible, well below my minimum daily target with only one day, 3rd January, hitting the target, however the 17th to 31st has seen a modest turnaround with my daily target average actually achieved by some 20 cents with eight days above the minimum!
In reality this has meant just over a 21% daily increase in earnings between the two halves.

yeah two halves except that my two halves were exact reverse to yours. December 2010 was my best month 'ever' and it was going like that till Jan 21. Something happened, the switch was turned off, and 21st-31st was bad like it was through the slump apr-aug season. Feb has started bad too.

My understanding is that Dec is generally a great month because of all the advertising spend for the holiday season and companies trying to spend all their budgets for the year. Jan has no major holiday, consumers are not in the shopping mood, and companies are retaining their ad budgets to spend at appropriate times.

The low after Christmas and around new year was to be expected in my niche. Even though the start of January was a little low it was not that bad. The turning point was 10th of January. From there on my earnings increased quite a bit making January the best month ever.
