My first sale!!

posted on 2nd of march, 2010

I am just so excited -- I got my first sale!! I logged on tonight and saw that my earnings went from 14 cents (I've been suggesting keywords) to 49 cents.

I've had a DT account for 5 years and have been a buyer off and on...using mostly real estate and medical images. About a month ago I decided to invest in a digital camera and start taking and uploading pictures. Well...I've had success. Here's the picture that sold....yummy chocolate chip cookies!

I've got a few more pending. One thing I've learned through reading all of the blogs is to set up goals. I've decided on a pretty big one...I'd like to have 365 images in my portfolio by the end of the for each day of the year. Considering that today is March 3rd and I only have 8 so far, I better get snapping.

Nice portfolio so far :-)
Good luck with your goals, knowing that the trick with the uploading goal is to allow for the correct rejection rate!

About me

You could say that I have creative ADD. To make a living, I'm a graphic designer/writer/editor. I also have a photography hobby, enjoy scrapbooking (a lot like graphic design), illustration (learning to wield that illustrator pen tool), painting, and gardening. I joined DT years ago as a buyer -- it's only since January 2010 that I've decided to try to sell some of my own work.
