Are you guys experiencing any lower earnings in August, or is it just me?

I don't play the AdSense game but August is always a slow month for me with school holidays and people going away - roll on winter :)

Record month last month and even stronger this month. It depends on the market; there are seasonal factors, depending on the site, and depending on who the target audience is and/or type of products.

It's a good month for me, hoping to break $200 this month :-) Almost half way there already

Probably not great by a lot of people's standards, but its a hobby for me.

August is the best month ever so far, but I always ad new content to my online magazines.

The first part of August was very good, Here's hoping for the last half of the month. XX (crossing fingers).

That's an average day for me, I'd suggest working on MORE TRAFFIC!

Unfortunately my site (did I say it was a hobby?) is in a tight niche, so getting $200 up a lot higher is going to be difficult (I am working on optimizing the pages though, to get better focus). But i'm reasonably happy - have a full time job which pays much better ;-)

August is doing fine. Traffic is up, EPC is up and it's my best month ever.

About the same as previous 2 months, around a 1000 to 1500 down over the previous 18 months! (down by a third, trafic, epc etc)

Niche hobby sites, 3800 page views a day average

A bit higher than average actually, which is always nice to see. If I tank the rest of the month I'll still be able to buy my beans...
