11:30pm: Bleh, I was logged in for 50 minutes tonight before I got my first call. And only 4.5 hours to go!

12:30am: And apparently $2/min is too much for anyone to pay to talk to me. :'( I hope it's not time to look for another service...

1:00am: Jeebus. Is it so fucking hard for you to just tell me what you want to hear? Do we have to play 20 questions? I'm not a mind-reader. You say you're dominant. Then dominate me, TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT!

4:30am: Fuck those cheap American bastards. 3 regulars tonight told me that I cost too much now. Apparently I cost twice as much as I did 2 weeks ago, that's why it's been slow. :( Love the Brits, though!

I didn't update but Friday night I was logged in for 2 hours, talked for 55 min, 6 calls. I was just exhausted and could barely hold my eyes open, so I logged off early. I could barely focus or put any energy into the calls I did take. I took Thursday and Saturday nights off.

Tonight I logged 4hr 40min, talked 123 min, 23 calls. It was a terrible slow night. I think my longest call was 15 minutes long.

When I first started, I was told that we were being changed from VIP to Platinum to justify the rate changes. But so far, I've had nothing but complaints from my regulars, who apparently aren't going to be my regulars anymore. :( I don't know what to do about it. I don't know if I have the option to go back to Premium, because there isn't VIP anymore. And if I did, I don't know that I would get paid the same. I mean, I'm costing twice as much now. It has made a huge dent in my calls. Even my picture guy called tonight but said he wouldn't connect because of the new rate. :(

I turned in my invoice for the 2/1 - 2/15 pay period. I logged a total of 53.6 hours, talked 1832 minutes, took 184 calls. Last period I logged 70.1 hours, talked 2513 minutes, took 240 calls. So my average this period was 57% talk time vs 60% talk time last period and my average call was about 10 minutes this period and 10.5 minutes last period. I just didn't work as many hours. I'm going to try to be more diligent this pay period, to see if I can hit those good numbers again. Although, with my current rates, it's not looking likely. Talking 45-60 minutes to someone at $1/min isn't bad, but paying twice that is definitely not good. I guess we'll see what happens.

I don't know that I will be doing daily recaps anymore, especially since my volume is down. I'm running into the same calls over and over. So I don't expect any unique calls anymore. I can't imagine it'll be very interesting to read the same things over and over. It sure isn't interesting to talk about them.

I guess I'm feeling a bit discouraged right about now.
