100th Download this week.

June 8, 2010
On the 6th of June 2010 an iStock member downloaded the file shown below and thus brought my sales tally on that sight up to my first real landmark: that of 100 downloads/sales. 

Thanks guys!

 To round things off nicely this week also marked my 1000th rating on iStock! 1000 5 star ratings is nice!

Micro stock and I

I have even added a favicon: the silly image I have in my about me page. 

Analytics is set up too so I can follow the hundreds and thousands of hits my page will receive. At the moment traffic will be limited to so...

Getting started...

April 19, 2010
 I have just discovered this new site-building site/application/resource - whatever you wish to call it.

First off: the best thing is that it is free and many of the cool features are available. If you do wish to make use of some further features there is always the option of upgrading and a mere $45.00 per year! Not bad really... but when you get quite a lot with the free subscription, well why bother?

Anyway... blogging... I used to try to keep a blog on Blogger.com though with my tende...
