I understand you Paulie ;-)

As I said in some other post, the stock business continues to be attractive at the begining ... when we aim to earn $100, then $500 ... or even $1000. After that, and at this time, most of us will face the true and learn that is very hard to make more money.

I think most of the contributors who have earn more (many more) than $1000 are facing a decline in earnings in the last years. And will be rare the new ones that will reach what we earn in the good old years of stock.

The stock photo business in microstock is not dead, but is not profit anymore.

this is very hard way to make a living? really? compared to what? I'd say 80% of this planet's working population would just facepalm if they heard this.

If you don't get it ... I was talking about "microstock profit"

It's good to be optimistic, but microstock photos are commodity products.

so is the average person looking for work. if you are not pretty much an expert at something, you are gonna be just part of the gray crowd that's getting flushed down the toilet by the unsustainable economy.

Do you know what is a commodity product? Google it ;-)

I do, what's your point?

I feel like walking walking on eggshells, I have to be extra careful not to offend some intellectually undernourished person simply by being logical. :))))

Another potentially useful thread pertaining to the business reduced to a playground spat.

F's sake.

Okay, back to the topic.  It took me fours years to finally break into the profit mode- all my equipment and other accessories are paid off and I will have to report a profit to our IRS this year. Not sure if this is common but 4 years is kind of long in my eyes to reach a profit level? I work about 20 hours per week on my business.

You are right on schedule.  Don't Dept of Revenue give you about 5 years to turn a profit?  20 hrs a week for part time micro is alot.  Your hard work is paying of.  Good on you!
