It has been an interesting 2 and a half years here on Dreamstime. It is obviously my favorite site - I'm an exclusive contributor here.

August 2008 - First payout.
November 2008 - 500 online, 436 sales.
February 2009 - Hit 1 download per image online.
November 2009 - Won monthly assignment.
January 2010 - First non-assignment Level 5 image. And it sold another 66 times since then!
February 2010 - 1,000...
