Income wise, Christmas 2012 was a total bust. The total income was $6.47.
October and November were pathetic as well.
Of course such was to be expected. Google removed me from their index because I (gasp) ask people who add sites to my directory to pay a listing fee.
I started charging the listing fee because it is pain to maintain local directories.
I am still getting several thousand visitors a day ... but they are all looking for local brick and mortar stores. So no commissions there.
Since the Community Color sites no longer make enough to pay hosting fees, I need to figure out what to do with them.
IMHO, they provide a community service by providing listings for the small local sites that no one else will list.
On the bright side. I now no longer have to worry about the effects of the fiscal cliff. I won't have to pay taxes because I have no income.
