New Goal! 10 Uploads per Day!


posted on 30th of march, 2010

I have a new goal for myself and anyone else who want to try it with me. My goal for the next month will be to try and upload 10 images per day. I have a lot of old work that I need to upload and I want to create more vectors.

I wonder if this goal is realistic? With the limited time I have to spend on creating stock art I can only draw about 2 images per day. I guess I'll give it a try starting now and see how it goes. It would be great if I can upload all of my existing images to DT by the end of April.

Wish me luck!

Well, I guess April is almost over and I didn't achieve my overall goal. I uploaded 97 images this month, (not including the rejected ones.) Not bad. I guess.

SUCCESS!
I've finished uploading and keywording my 10 images for today.

Well, it's the end of April and the images I just submitted probably won't be approved until the month is over. I didn't achieve my goal of uploading 10 images per day every day. But I gave it a good effort.

I'm working on vector frames and backgrounds. The last 19 vector frames that I submitted were rejected because they were "to simple." Although, I disagree. It's not that simple to create seamless patterns. And the people who buy stock illustrations don't always have the time and the know how to create these images. My frames are selling well on other sites otherwise I wouldn't waste my time. So I gave it another try today and just uploaded 10 new ones. I added a ribbon to some of them so I hope they won't be considered to simple.

I've had some really busy days, and some days I haven't been able to meet my daily goal of 10 uploads per day. I'm thinking about giving up and it's only April 16th.

No need to give up; maybe time to re-evaluate. I would suggest changing your goal to 50 per week. That way you can have an off day or two and still meet your goals. Please do not give up, the sooner you get images online the sooner you make money.

Hi Visceralimage, I think you have a good plan of action that will help you achieve your goal. Keep us posted on your progress.

I have a similar goal. My goal is 300 images approved a month but I decided to only upload Monday-Friday and take the weekends to shoot more. Uploading, keywording, sorting images, conversion from raw, etc is time consuming.

So far this month I have 57 images approved and another 60 pending.

SUCCESS! I've finished uploading and keywording my 10 images for today. Finished just in time before the day ended. It's 10:00 PM here in CA and I'm going to spend some more time drawing.

....If you upload one a day that's 365 images a year. Not bad at all.

For me, I hope I can upload 1 image per day.. :)

I've been trying to upload 10 images per day. It's been very challenging. I uploaded 9 images for the current assignment and they were all rejected. The notice I received said: "This is a rather simplistic approach to this assignment. We are looking for more elaborate conceptual work. Thank you."

I am going to give it another shot and submit something tonight. (Tonight is the deadline for submissions.) I'm going take DT's advice this time and hopefully at least one will be accepted. Wish me luck!

Day Five:
No Success. Goal not met. I only managed to upload 5 images today, but three were assignment files. Even though it's Saturday I had to work in the morning. My parents are also visiting me from Ohio so I spent time with them. There is not enough time in the day to get everything done I want to accomplish. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day. I can start again.

Since tomorrow is Saturday and I don't have to work I want to focus on creating some new vectors. I think I'll draw something to submit to the Religious/Spiritual Assignment Contest.

It's Friday night and I managed to upload my 10 images to DT. Now I need to wait for them to show up in the "unfinished files" section so I can add descriptions and keywords. I have an hour and 20 minutes left until the clock runs out for today. I hope I can finish in time.

WOW! For me that would be a difficult goal to reach but I wish you the best of luck as you try. Having old work on your hard drive will help.

Thanks for your support!
I'm super busy today at work. I'm a Graphic Designer. I did get some images uploaded to DT before work and over my lunch break but they haven't showed up in the "unfinished file" section so I have to wait until tonight to add descriptions and keywords. I hope I can reach my daily goal of 10 uploads. It's only day 2 and I'm already feeling overwhelmed. Wish me luck!

A massive goal to set yourself! All the very best of luck in achieving it and more :o)

I've finished uploading my 10 images for today. That was more time consuming than I thought it would be. Now I have to wait for my last 3 uploads to appear in the "unfinished files" section so I can add a description and keywords. I think I only have 2 more hours before the clock starts over. I'm in California and I think DT is on East coast time. Well see what happens...

Lot of work... good luck!
