The Camgirl Calendar

It truly is amusing to see the excuses fly in adult industry message board forums, as soon as someone posts a complaint about how slow such and such a site is (Streamate, for example). Having been in the industry for 16+ years now, I can say with absolute certainty, that there are no trends with respect to overall traffic. There are far too many obstacles to factor in where traffic is concerned . The one day of the year that I have ever found to be consistently slow is Super Bowl Sunday. Regardless, in those forums, someone always seems to have the answer, often posted in a strangely defensive yet convincing manner.

Several years ago, I wrote up a list in a message board forum of a site I used to work on, filled with excuses for why cam sites can be slow, every month of the year. Logically, traffic should be slightly affected by these events but not to the extent we were seeing it. The same applies to today. Another thing I always kept in mind, knowing this industry as well as I do, is to  always consider the source. If that source has something to say that might require some credibility to be believed, then perhaps they should put a handle to it; one that people can easily find online. <– I believe my insinuation came across loud and clear.

Here’s my newly revised list of excuses for slowness. 12 months worth. Enjoy!

 

January – New Year’s drinking, paying off credit card bills from the holidays. Superbowl (I’ll give this one some credit).

February – Valentine’s Day (diamonds aren’t cheap!).

March – Spring Break (eatin’, boozin’, tattooin’).

April – Taxes, planting flowers (and weeding can just plain poop anyone out!).

May – Mother’s Day.

June – Father’s Day. School’s out!

July – National birthdays (1st and 4th of July celebrations for Canada & U.S.A.). Also, this thing the industry likes to refer to as “summer slowdown”.

August – More of that “summer slowdown” bs, along with the fact that people are trying to enjoy their last weeks of summer.

September – Back to school. Labour Day weekend, too.

October -Canadian Thanksgiving. Halloween (the only month of the year when chocolate prices soar!). Actually, this is true <–

November – The start of Christmas shopping. U.S. Thanksgiving.

December – Christmas is coming ! Christmas is coming! Holiday travel, planning, parties.

 

Leaves very little time for us, huh gals? Somehow, miraculously, the sites still seem to thrive, despite all this. I recant what I said about them being webpimps. They’re not. What they are; magicians! One trick I’d like to see is where they’ve hidden all our money. 😉

 

Happy holidays everyone!
