I must share this thought of the day. A follow-up on a previous blog; I'm still heart broken after my man of 9 years pulled the rug out from under me, and ran away scared. He left me in an apartment I couldn't afford, in a city that can only be compared to the "the pits of hell". During the months of heart ache, going up and down in a continual cycle with him returning AGAIN then leaving AGAIN, my mind and heart was only focused on him. I hadn't uploaded anything or even picked up my camera for 7months. I was dead, my spirit and passion gone.
Finally, I decided I needed out. It was the only way to save whatever was left of me. He was hurting me beyond belief and nothing else mattered but him. So, I quit my job, moved out, and now with unlimited time to fill, I have been trying to quiet my mind by focusing back on my photography.
I've been recently writing DT blogs, and slowly uploading new material. A way to feel proud of myself again, bring back some value to my day and bring some life back into this empty shell called me. What I have been noticing, that when you are active with your account, as I have been recently, you get more traffic and more sales.
I love that DT breaks down your earnings in the "Account Statistics" portion of your profile. Not only could I see more sales now that Im getting back into the game, but WHAM! the proof is right there in the monthly statistics! I see, the month he left, the heart ache begins, my active drops, my sales drop. Down, down, down. Now my heart is healing, I have unlimited time, no job or boyfriend tying me down, uploads increase, activity increases, sales, even views of photos past are increasing.
It's only been about a month, but Im interested to see if this trend continues. Quite an interesting trend, and makes you really think, makes you feel proud of yourself.
