Goal Setting Part 2

posted on 3rd of march, 2008

As promised in Part 1, I am tracking my progress toward achieving 50 downloads in 1 month at Dreamstime by 7/31/2008.

The first two months of my challenge have been successful. In January I set a personal record with 28 downloads, more than double my average. This came on the strength of 91 new accepted uploads.

About me

I became fascinated with photography when I bought my first digital camera. It was just a point and shoot, but the beautiful colors and moments it captured on a vacation trip to Disney World tempted me to learn more about photography.
