A welcoming community

posted on 24th of august, 2011
I have never really given the idea of stock photography much thought, but over the years I've amassed a huge collection of photographs and finally decided to give stock a shot. I first looked at a few other stock photo sites before my mother recommended Dreamstime, saying it's her favorite and has the best photos.

So here I am. And I couldn't agree with her more.

But it's the community here that I enjoy so much. I haven't written a blog before, but I've read many, and the comments in response to those that post of their achievements are so kind and encouraging. I haven't generally been a part of any online communities, and even though I have thus far not been very vocal, I certainly feel a part of this community. I've been a contributor since March...

Fair enough. I considered exclusivity but decided that putting all of my eggs in one basket was too risky. For me, I am hoping to make a little extra income to support retirement years from now. Who knows where MS will be then, but building a strong port is important to me and holding accounts at multiple MS sites is equally as important. That's why I asked. If income is your goal, branching out is practical. If doing something new and satisfying trumps money, then to each his/her own. Best of luck to you.

Your comments, as I posted in this blog itself, are all so kind and I thank you for the remarks. To Adeliepenguin, I enjoyed seeing the places you have been too, your photos are wonderful. To Kelpfish, why I'm here, hmm, I guess it's to make money, but I haven't actually expected to make all that much. I really just wanted to do something with all these photos I have, and in the process I have begun looking at possible subjects in a more microstock oriented way. The whole experience has been fun for me, and a learning one at that. So perhaps, the reason I'm here is to learn, to do something new.
