Stick at it!

posted on 23rd of october, 2010

Well just over a year ago I said I would give this Micro stock thing a fair shot, and if I liked it I would stick around. It was also an experiment in photography. Could I produce images that would sell?
Micro stock for me was all about setting targets. The first image online, the first sale, 50 images online, 100 images online, you get the idea. Well I have learned a lot about this business, and even more about myself and sticking to the task. I have also made a little money in the process.
I am happy to say I plan to stick at it. I have enjoyed the challenge. Thank you to everyone that helped along the way.
