Newbie's slow progress

This is my second blog post. I now have 25 uploaded images and an dismal approval rating of 18.3% :-(. It has been a rough road so far but I’m still learning and glad to have the pictures online that I do! I have my fingers crossed for my five pending files.

My main reason for writing is that I still haven’t had a single download and wondering if this was normal for things to be really slow. About how often do you have a download per uploaded picture??

How about…

(Number of pictures uploaded / downloads per month / 30) = downloads per day per picture.

I have read through many of your helpful blogs but I’m still not sure that I’m making the best use of my keywords. I would be grateful if you have any suggestions.

I'm I missing something obvious regarding marketing my images?
