Finally reached my one year goal!

posted on 29th of march, 2013

well its been a long year, (ok.. it was a little over a year!) but I managed to get over 500 images accepted, and my first 100 sales! thanks so much for the support of everyone and all the tips and help along the way. sure is a learning curve to stock and I am still learning!!!
Some things I have learned are:

Relax and enjoy what you do.. meditate even!

Pay attention to the little things

Don't be afraid to look in new places for great ideas

when you fall.. get back up!

Sometimes you have to look up for inspiration

going back in time is a real blast!

the same scene can look totally different in the snow

sometimes its not so easy to stand out!

Happy Easter!

wow, goals for the second year? I know long term I would like to do stock and quit one of my 3 jobs! travel more and still pay the bills... year two I do want to reach a thousand images and be making at least $100 a month. March was my best month with 11 sales for the month. I seem to average about 7-8 most months. I would rather see that per week~!
