    Five months into Microstock at Dreamstime, I hit two milestones on the same night with this photo. Next milestone .... a level 2 image. One thing I like about Dreamstime and microstock is that I don't know where I will end up, but there is always that next goal and milestone... More

    I reached a new milestone today. $400 in sales. This is the image that put me over the top. The only bad part is that I am $0.18 away from a payout, anyone have a spare credit laying around? I really hate it when that happens. You just have to sit and wait for one more... More
