My AS revenue is up for the month. I will probably have my best February ever, though Nov. Dec. and January were not great.
To answer AndyA: I have a mix of AS, banners (ValueClick) and my own sales. Works for me. The best part of the deal is I never really went hard on selling my site to others, so my direct sales are pretty small, but, they are consistent. Most of my direct ad clients have been with me 4 years or longer.
Here's one tip on direct sales. Find a price both you and the prospective client are comfortable with and sell it for a year minimum. Then, if you're still happy after a year, sell it again to the same client for the same rate.
