Good Things Come To Those Who Wait (and Keep Uploading)
Have you been waiting forever for that first ever download? Or perhaps you've been stuck with download number 10 or even 100. Maybe some of your photos just haven't been downloaded at all. Do you feel like throwing in the towel?
Sometimes, perhaps often, things just don't move as quickly as we want them to. And this can really get us down; No, not downloaded, d-o-w-n :) But that is just the way life is. Things take time, and good things take lots of time. Good things like getting to 1,000 images online or having hundreds or even thousands of downloads under your belt.
So, hang in there. Don't forget that you got to be a contributor here at dreamstime because you have something unique to offer. You have your own take on the world around you. Maybe you need to improve your technique. Perhaps you need to diversify. Or maybe it's just that the people who need your photos just haven't found them yet. How many photos do you have in your portfolio? I only have 7 now. How many downloads have you had? I only have one. Yes, it can be discouraging, but hey, Rome wasn't built in a day. Things may be moving at a snail's pace for you now, but even snails eventually get to where they're going.
