I think that's going to be my goal from now on. Drive posts off topic. We've already covered every microstock topic at least a dozen times to the point where the off topic responses are more interesting.

Sounds like someone already has their new years resolutions in place.

New Years Resolutions? C'mon, who ever keeps New Years resolutions?

I'm a retired microstocker (was a hobbyist - I quit a couple of years ago as the drop in revenue was too steep to justify the work). Chemist and Industrial Hygienist now specializing in emergency response (hazmat).

Still reading the forum by habit but I must say it all seems a bit depressing.

I hope things improve for you guys.

John, did you delete all your microstock accounts though or your work is still there?

no point in deleting - still get a few payouts per year mainly from SS and IS. I just have about 400 images online. I had seen microstock as a way to supplement my income once I retired but I am still 10 years out from retirement and don't see microstock as "sustainable" now and even less in the future. In 10 years, the collections will be in the hundreds of million of images and my "exposure" would be a tiny fraction even if I could work on this full time. So I'm looking to invest in real estate instead :-)

I'm a compositor (not composer) and do digital special effects for film and TV, supervise shoots on location with an eye on potential problems for post-production. I do stock footage as a hobby.

Microstock is "only" my third job.

Photography is my only job, and the majority of that has bee microstock the past few years.  But I am looking to branch back into other areas soon out of necessity.
