    It's collapsing like crazy lately. This is actually a great chance to stock up on it, and potentially make a killing when market recovers (hopefully it does)

    Not at all. Nothing changed. I am in Thailand and relax. The only restriction I got: They closed the fucking swimming pool and gym in my apartment building. This sucks.

    I am typically a calm person, but the panic somehow affected me. Was running in a forest today and a couple with masks started shouting on me, asking why I didn't have a mask. They were being quite rude.
    Normally I'd just smile and continue running, saying nothing. This time, however, I stopped, told them to gtfo and lock themselves at home, if they are scared of catching the virus in the forest...

    Slowly, step by step, it's creeping to my head as well.

    Is anyone in europe finding this a bit exciting. I bet it must feel mildly like those netflix shows. I would be building up supplies of water, sanitisations, water filters and rain water harvesting stuff and tinned/preserved food, and making diy biohazard suits and finding ways to to produce electricity and heat without grid

    Sad to hear that your sales are severely affected.. and yes, it is affecting a lot people globally, even big companies, in China, a lot of car companies are severely affected by sales, and are paying millions daily to expenses, F&B industry are also severely affected, even the news came mentioned that aviation companies are heading to bankruptcy by the next 3 months if airlines are still not allowed to fly travelers( you could earn a few years of money and be bankrupt in 3 months of not working, that's just how bad some businesses works.

    So far I haven't noticed too much but I am running YouTube channels. Maybe there is a slight dip in ad revenue, but I am probably in the safest game at the moment with all this stuff going down. In Ukraine its like the apocalypse...people wearing masks, buying everything off the shelves...we have no toilet paper...but there are at least napkins and paper towels. I'm STILL not sure how buying up all the toilet paper has anything to do with Coronavirus... Unless you're just a big a**shole and you need all that.

    By the way, I do have an Instagram account that has over 20k followers and its just been sitting there. If anyone out there is interested in it PM me.

    With that, this Ukrainian girl wishes everyone to be safe. Make sure you wash wash wash your hands ALWAYS, carry some sanitizer and do not touch your face! That is unless you are home and have washed your hands really good. Please be safe!

    I oddly noticed an uptick in sales on a site selling smm services. A lot of musicians buying are buying stuff from the site right now. Kinda interesting to see. Guess there home board and figured now is the perfect time to start working on music, and then marketing it hits their brain. Idk. I've even talked a few clients into increasing budget.

    I made a few changes to one of my Amazon affiliate sites and people have started buying like crazy.

    Things are going somewhat according to plan again.

    1st half of the month felt almost dead in comparison to what's been happening as of late. My theory is that people stocked up on essentials during the first few weeks to a point where they're stocked full of that stuff for months and have nothing else to do now... Buying shit online just for the sake of it almost.


    (I made the change on one of the outdoors sports niche site, but not on another one, and it's only the one where I made the change that is generating all of those sales now)
