This is a good point.  When the critical mass is spiraling down it is next to impossible beat it in its own bubble.  Looking for alternatives is certainly what I am doing as well.  I have little technical knowledge (web design, shopping carts, etc.) which is keeping me at bay until I figure out how to move forward with alternative strategies. RM is but one avenue but I am getting into motion graphics with sliders and holy grail type time lapses, but it's expensive and time consuming.  I enjoy it but have a day job too.

How about footage?

Doing that too.
Mantis,
I have read several post from you in the past and I was under the impression that you were mostly in video

Nope. I do both.  I have about 3800 images and 1300 videos (mix of video, animations and time lapse).

I believe a couple of years ago I read that you had more than a 1000 video.
I have always appreciated your posts as a very sensible person (rare thing in forum).
But I would have thought you had at least 3000 now

Me too but life changes have slowed down my production.  Couple of deaths and a move really have impacted my time to create content.  Two weeks ago was the first time I shot commercial images.  Funny, I was just thinking of doing a couple of week video shoot road trip.  I still might but have to dial in some time for myself.  I will tell you that my plan WAS to double my collection in two years, but life just happens.
