I was in the same situation but the only way to get over the hurdle is to keep submitting images. I came to the realization that I have to put in the work to get better images and that sales will come over time with more inventory in my portfolio. I am slowly getting more submissions approved. I am starting to carry my camera with me everywhere I go to try to get more shots, approved submissions and increased sales. It is nice to hear that you were able to start contributing again. I will also try to be more productive if not to increase sales but to get better at photography.
Nice portfolio ...good luck and wish you more sales now and in the future ...

Thanks for those kind encouragement words. I start to think, that, why do I focus myself to earnings and sales? /maybe I should look the otherway around, but focus on my photographic skills to improve further, there's always room to improve. I'll keep shooting, and uploading and forget about sales and earning, think this is much more fun enjoyable.
BTW you all got nice ports as well....

again and again I remind myself - if I focus on sales and not on my passion in taking photos - what is it all about then? just another job? love what you do and people will see that, which will then automatically, as a side effect, result in sales

Following the reasoning of Igor I have controlled also my number of sales from august 2012.
It result I uploaded about 250 images from august 2012.
These images produced 45 sales.
Other 140 sales has been produced by earlier images (I started to upload images in june 2011).
So also in my opinion you are actually in good position regarding sales.
