I've been rumbled!

posted on 11th of september, 2007

I think all the lovely photo buyers out there have finally realized that there are so many amazing quality images here on Dreamstime, that they really shouldn't waste their valuable credits on my snaps anymore!

So, from the person who wrote blogs about "try not to check DT too often and the sales will come...", and also about finding the time to shoot more, etc... it seems that the bubble has finally burst and I am never going to sell another picture!!!

Don't feel sorry for me, I've pestered the poor admins about keywording and my last batch of submissions (otherwise known as 'rejections'...) so much that I wouldn't blame them if they kept all the profits from my sales for themselves.

Can you tell that I've been working almost non-stop since last Thursday, including the weekend till 2am, and now I don't even have the boost of some juicy sales on DT?

Poor me.

(Pathetic, isn't it?)

(Don't answer that! :) )

Well Stuart, being new to DT I look forward to the day when my sales reach a point that they can plummet from! Your portfolio is dynamic, be patient and keep shooting. Marilyn

Thanks, Carmen. Much appreciated :)

I have been spoiled the last couple of months by having two extended license sales, together with steady regular sales. So the switch to less than 1 image per day (it seems) is a shock to the greed system! :)

Ah, yes. Wise words both of you. Thanks for the moral support! :)
