100 Images Online At Last...

Well... that took a LOT longer than I thought it would. When I started out at the end of 2008, I worked out upload schedules, and thought that I'd be up to 100 uploads per week by now. However, as I'm sure is true for many, life has a habit of getting in the way (or as John Lennon apparently said 'Life is what happens while you're making plans').

So today is a milestone for me. I finally have 100 images in my portfolio, and I thought I'd write my first blog just to give a few tips and reassurances to those who are just beginning.

1. Don't take rejections personally. Learn from them. They will help you to improve your work by strengthening your weaknesses (and there's no shame in weaknesses - everyone has them, until they strengthen them).

2. Be patient with the review process - it takes as long as it takes. Use the time while you're waiting to create and upload more pictures.

3. If you don't get sales for a while, don't worry. If the reviewers have accepted your images, then you should be feeling good that you've passed the quality test. Sales will come when they come, just keep going, keep learning and keep uploading.

As St Patrick's Day isn't far away... I'll end this with one of my shamrocks, and wish you all good luck :)
