    Hi everyone,

    Fairly new TURKER here (just reached 1,000 HITS a couple weeks ago) and am concerned about the seasonal aspect of the work.

    Right now I shoot for no less than $40 per day (working long days) and am curious just how much it might slow after XMAS.

    I realize that no one has a crystal ball, but can any long term TURKERS give me an idea? Does the work cut in half? It it a big / noticeable difference?

    Any thoughts appreciated as I'm trying to plan in advance and right now this is my sole income...

    In past years, it doesn't really seem to slow down after Christmas. It gets a little slow during Christmas since some requesters go on vacation or take time off, but after Christmas, it's back to business as usual.
