1000 online photos!! A good reason to say Hello :)

posted on 15th of october, 2013

Hi everyone. I have recently reached 1000 online photos. This is an extremely important event for me, something that a year and a half back when I started seemed very, very distant in time. In terms of Internet social activity (including blogging) I’m virtually inexistent. Mostly because I am almost always extremely busy.

Which of course is not much but for me is enough to keep me going :) But I have only 363 sales. If you look at the 'big boys" with thousands of sales and thousands of approved photos you understand the thing is for real. But, again, it is a long time project.

You have great pics from great places.

Is it for real? Did you get the payments for your sales until now?

Thanks and good luck!

Thanks. Yes, you are right. It's important to get social. I have learned a few useful thing solely from those who commented on this post. So definitely when I consider I have something useful to say and share I will do it again.
Thanks again.
