Small steps

I am a very creative person.  There are so many things I enjoy doing, most of which I am pretty good at.  Lately what's been on my mind is what to do with WHAT I do...then HOW to go about doing it.  
With each & every thing I make or do, I wonder how I could turn it into something...

Well, everything has to start somewhere.  

So I sent some of my pictures to an online stock photo company yesterday.  They require you to upload 10 photos for review before they will accept you as a contributor.  You must give a very short description & tag them with keywords.  If you are accepted as a contributor, you get a percentage whenever someone buys your photo.  This is, by no means, any type of get-rich-quick strategy.  I just figure that since taking pictures (of everything, everywhere, all the time) is something I do anyway, if I can make a little extra cash-ola from it then why not right?

I was pretty proud of myself for taking this first step...also a little nervous though, as criticism is a hard thing to take.  But I've already decided that no matter what the outcome (their opinion), I love my pictures & it will never shy me away from taking them.   :)

Now currently in the waiting process...I'm sure I'll post an update when I hear back.



  1. Really clear pretty pictures. What kind of camera do you have? And, that's a neat way to start! Good luck!

  2. Neither of these are any I entered for review either. Thank you :)
    I only have a Kodak Easy Share digital camera. Besides maybe a sepia or black & white change, all of my pictures are untouched.
