    Nine years in IM and this by far, has been the worse year ever and hoping for a much better 2010.So i just want to say 2009,dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    2009 did kind of suck for me too. I won't blame the economy because a lot of it was my own fault. I got lazy with site SERP rankings and I got obliterated in some profitable niches. Playing catch-up is working, but it was almost as difficult to get all those sites ranked in the first place.

    Not necessarily for the OP but for anyone listening:

    Moral of my story: don't be like me and get lazy. After you're on top, keep climbing higher. Even if it's just a little bit every day. The competition gets better every day. Hell, some of you are probably my competition. 2009 sucked but it got me to re-sharpen my swords and I'm out for blood again. :)

    A lot of people don't know what it's like to market in a NON - recession as IM was not popular when we were not in a recession.

    You always make more money, when people have more money to spend.

    2009 was a great year for me. I will have banked just over $100k for the year at the end of this month.

    Sales took a big drop this year compared to last.This is mostly from sites that have been on auto pilot since 2001 that needed very little work and ratios that started at 1:30 are now at 1:3500 : / the market is just too saturated today,so its time to move on to bigger projects.

    IM or not, it's been a horrible couple of years to end the first decade of the new millennium.
    Thank god a new decade is around the corner.

    2009 actually went pretty well for me, didn't make as much as I wanted to, but still learned a bunch of new things and created my plan for next year. Looking forward to 2010.
