Looking Back at 2008

I have not been on Dreamstime yet for a year but for me it has been a great experience and I look forward to having a complete year on Dreamstime next year.

I have mainly accomplished all my goals in 2008 for my Stock Portfolio which has been really satisfying. I had a goal of making 200-250 sales by the end of the year and I have already gone over 250. I wanted to upload from 900-1000 files and as of right now I am up to 932. I am only $40 away from my 5th payout which was my third goal but I am still satisfied with what I have earned so being $40 away from my next payout is no big deal since I am still satisfied with all that I have accomplished.

In 2009 my biggest goal I have is to save my earning money from Dreamstime to get Adobe Illustrator since I took a few classes in college several years ago. I would love to say by the end of next year that I have some illustrations in my portfolio is really the goal for me.

Here are some of my favorite photos I added to my portfolio for 2008:

Have A Happy New Year Everyone!

Well done, Susan! Your work is always a pleasure to view, the polar bear is one of my favorites -- I often feel like that at the end of the day! Every best wish to you for a happy and successful 2009. Cheers!

For me when it comes to animal photos in the zoo the 80-400 is always a must. the Lions actually are sitting all the way in the back of the enclosure.

Cool, so there is hope for my D70 after all! Gotta have that 80-400!

Great portfolio, and many more sales to come in the New Year I am sure, so the purchase of Illustrator should not be too far off :0)
