  • Maybe it is just a coincidence

    by Mvogel | 5th of August, 2011

    Maybe it is just a coincidence but for quite some time my sales have been tracking my number of messages to the point that my sales and messages have been the same a number of times. If I look at my stats my messages track with my sales very closely. So this means that... More
  • Does Blogs and message boards affect sales?

    by Visceralimage | 31st of January, 2011

    It is a closely guarded secret how the ranking of images is computed for searches. We all have wondered if and how acceptance rate, participation on the message boards, writing blogs, etc affect our ranking on searches and resulting sales. I did an experiment this month;... More
  • Learning Curve

    by Williamardrey | 5th of August, 2010

    I'm learning so much from reading other contributors' blogs. I almost feel like I should be paying for this. One contributor summed it up nicely by saying it's quality that will get you noticed and as someone else said: everyone can improve. I think that will be my... More
  • A Hand Spun Blog

    by Mrslevite | 28th of May, 2010

    How many blogs am I supposed to have? Just about every site I go to now reminds me I haven't posted to my blog. I thought one blog was enough. I had my own little simple blog. And life was good. No one reminded me I hadn't blogged yet... More

    by Jdanne | 14th of March, 2010

  • Small world

    by Mildegard | 17th of October, 2009

    The world I live in is very small. It consists of an apartment where I live and about two or three hundred meters around it where I stroll with my baby or go shopping for food and things for him. That's the story of this image. You know why I think DT blogs are great? Because... More

    by Niagaragirl | 9th of April, 2008

    To use a website or blog to promote your personal interests or photo business is a personal choice. Back in the Internet Days of Yore, I began building websites to play around with the new and wonderful technology. And the questions from friends came. Oh, can you do one for... More
