    by Noonie | 28th of November, 2008

    I finally reached my goal of 1000 photos on line! I thought it would take me until December but the magic number was accepted today. The autumn season was so beautiful where I live that the shots I took helped me tremendously. I also had another reason for meeting my goal... More
  • 200 Sales!

    by Cleaper | 18th of November, 2008

    Whilst I haven't quite kept up with my somewhat over ambitious goal of 100-150 uploads a month I am pleased to say that my sales seem to be quite steady. I have just reached 200 sales in around 10 months. Although my limited experience tells me that if I had reached my... More

  • 200th Down load....

    by Jaboardm | 10th of November, 2008

    A sign of improving... It took me 6 months to reach my 1st 100 down loads, and a mere 39 days to reach the 2nd hundred down loads. I have also uploaded more images and even managed to get a few in that aren't sports related. (I need to keep working on expanding that... More

    by Jaboardm | 7th of November, 2008

    I just had my 400th image accepted... I have set a goal to have 500 images online by the end of the year, which with my past couple months shouldn't be an issue. However, I do want to keep in mind that we have the holidays coming up and the review time may increase... More

  • 300th Image uploaded....

    by Jaboardm | 13th of October, 2008

    Just another among many milestones... My 300th image was approved on October 10, 2008. This was recently prolonged a bit as I disabled a few images, but worth the wait... (By the way - Yes, the player in white was carried off the field.) I have had to swallow my pride... More

  • 100th Download...

    by Jaboardm | 2nd of October, 2008

    Finally hit my 100th download, and just shy of 7 months. Not sure if that's good, bad or about average. Patience... Lots of subscriptions, but all the numbers add up. RPD $0.80 and add the $0.20 per upload averages out to about $1.40 I also feel I am beginning... More

    They do, they really do!! Got #800 while I was dreaming of #1000 last night. I also had another P-EL yesterday, and this last month got my first ever photo accepted for an assignment. I was thrilled to have it accepted and thrilled that it finished in the middle of the... More
  • Wishing

    by Noonie | 22nd of September, 2008

    I wish I may, I wish I might, have 800 tonight. Let's see which one gets me there. With one goal, and many tribulations, I should make it. I've had a very busy day and am on edge. I ate ice cream for supper. I'm excited. I think I will see how close to 1000 I can get... More

    Had my 200th image accepted last night. It was this feeding Northern Shoveler. I was able to accomplish this a little ahead of schedule, and am begining to think I can reach 300 by the end of September. Do have football and soccer starting up next week. Trying to... More
  • Achieved goal I set on Lacrosse images...

    by Jaboardm | 26th of August, 2008

    I Made it!!! and then some... At the beginning of this month I set a personal goal to have 50% of the lacrosse images on this site. Not a large goal for a big company, but as a small contributer it was a little more challenging. I did manage to get a few model... More
  • Another goal down

    by Moonb007 | 13th of August, 2008

    As stated in my last blog, I have been more aggressive with shooting and uploading this summer then I have been in the past. All this has been to push my hobby even further and get a better understanding of the stock industry. As my professors in architectural always told... More

  • Finally something other than lacrosse...

    by Jaboardm | 7th of August, 2008

    I was beginning to feel that I would only have my lacrosse photo's downloaded and be known for nothing else. Not that having lots of lacrosse photo's is a bad thing, I would also like to have other talents. Even though I am working on having the largest percentage... More
