This (usefull) article suggested me to upload less images, considering more the images quality.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have written for exposure, blah, blah, blah. I am now converting those site to a pay for additional info, ad supported type model. DT has way more exposure than I could hope to generate for myself! I absolutely agree that MOST of the time spent trying to generate free exposure could be better spent doing things like, well, creating images and learning the craft. Also, don't forget the small coffee shops and specialty bookstores that sell framed images. There are no for profit galleries in my small town and I am trying to work up the courage to approach local shop owners. Maybe that timidity is my bs checker's way of saying you need better images first.

On a more personal note, I follow your port and enjoyed getting to know a little more about how you got to where you are today.

The truth that people don't usually want to hear - success comes from working hard at something! There aren't many shortcuts in life.

One of the issues with blogs is that photographers tend to write for the wrong crowd - they blog to other photographers or friends, not the buyers... So even if you are gaining exposure and a following it can't lead to many sales.

Good blog :)

Finally had a moment to grab a coffee and read your article. It is another great one as always and really enjoyed it! Thanks so much for sharing!

So many nowadays think everything should come with little effort/work, refuse to take criticism properly to learn a job and should get the big bucks when not worth it. Reality is that rarely, if ever happens....

Nice to expose the truth about "exposure". So many people are desperate to be noticed. Just this week I saw on my Facebook news that a relative was jumping for joy because some obscure Swedish fishing magazine printed their photo (that they provided for free).

The .com boom/bust period was littered with companies who thought they could just give away everything and then ask for money later.
