March started pretty good for me with the following sales:

In my opinion up's and downs are two equal part of this business, so just cool down and keep on uploading.

Hi, to me this is a cumulative type of business. I don't look at the sales, I look at the number of images I have online, and try to upload weekly. Over a period of years I believe stock sales will pay well, but month to month is varies greatly. Keep working and over a period of time you'll do better and better!

I am relatively new myself but began to see that concept images tend to sell well. So I studied the subject areas of members who are very successful and started trying to make images relating to finance, insurance, politics, banking, etc though occasionally driving into the country and spotting landscapes of potential interest. Good luck. David.

My sales come through whole March. Tan, what a nice person your ole dad is! I very like what he said.

yes, i agree with Luis, don't think of it...
i remember my dear ole dad once told me about work and paycheck.
he said, "if you live to be happy for a paycheck, you will be happy only once a month " (at that time, payday was only end of month).
,,he continued, "but if you live to be happy with your work, happiness is everyday".
take care of your work, strive for excellence,
and the rest , including paycheck (from stock or from everything else), will take care of itself.
