1st Paycheck!

Today, I can officially draw my first payout from Dreamstime. I can’t believe it. Six months ago, it was just a let-me-see-what-happens and a why-not, fun thing to do. Then, it became a challenge when a few pictures were accepted but a lot were rejected. Then, the first sale—at 35 cents, small as it seemed to many but it was a huge milestone for me. I remember announcing it to my closest circle with unbelief but with great pride and joy.

THANKS, oh, so very much, Dreamstime, for giving even amateurs like me this immense sense of triumph.

Thanks to my pal, RB, who served as my catalyst and got me going in all these.

Thanks to all the editors, your refusal reasons taught me a lot. The success of Dreamstime is a testimony that YOU FOLKS KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING!

Thanks to the very kind, super responsive, admins, for answering my inquiries.

Thanks to the friendly, supportive and encouraging community here.

Thanks to all the buyers.

Well, I gotta go, gotta announce this huge milestone to everyone I know!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! It feels great, doesn't it? You've got some great images, and this is just the first of many paychecks to come. Your images are really nice, but more important, you seem to have a good sense of stock photography. Yay, you!

Thank you, all! As always, you've been very supportive and the experiences, frustrations, successes and knowledge you share here have all been inspiring to me. This is an awesome community that I am so privileged to be a part of.

@David: I agree DT is addictive indeed, a very positive one. And I think I'll do the same thing as you, leave the $$ to accumulate.
