  • 200 Sales!

    by Nstanev | 26th of February, 2010

    Well, not a huge deal, but a couple of good sales last night pushed me past the 200 DL's milestone. It doesn't take a lot to get me excited, I guess. :) I also ended up with a BME in terms of revenue. RPD is fairly dismal, though. This was the lucky 200th sale: More

    by Maigi | 19th of December, 2009

    Here it is: download no 7000. I'd like to reward the downloader, but don't know who he or she might be. Well, that's the microstocker's life. Which I actually pretty much like. :) Is it a sign I have to work harder next year? I'll take it as yes... Best wishes to all microstockers... More
