I'm in the same situation as you, Kickedout. I'll give it to the end of this year, and if things don't improve, might close all my sites down. I'm not generating enough income to cover my expenses.
The number one issue seems to be loss of search engine traffic. I lost approx. 85% of it between 2008 and this year. I've been noticing a drop every year, especially from March through October. From November through February, seems to run a bit higher.
