When i first started almost 2 years ago i started on Livejasmin, and yes the traffic is awesome, but it does not mean they spend money. And the Troll situation there is horrible , especially if you do not work for a studio and are American. I have been on SM for the past 5 mos. and it has been much better than LJ in many ways, but this month for me has been very slow. The slow down has allowed me to work on getting out on my own which is my goal this year.
I remember January being slow last year on LJ, i believe it is because everyone’s credit card statements come and they begin to pay off their Christmas. I usually picks up in February, so this month we have to be more creative, tweet a lot to drive traffic to yourself and to maybe reinvent your show.
