I was hoping to write a blog article on IllustrationInfo.com containing people's personal stock sites. So if you run your own personal stock site, feel free to post it below. Please include:

Name of Site
URL
Owner/Artist/Photographer
A brief one or two sentence description

Here's mine:

MyStockVectors
http://www.mystockvectors.com/
Cory Thoman
MyStockVectors is a premium collection of cartoon vector illustrations by artist Cory Thoman.

Feel free to write your own blog article as well. The idea here was to promote each others sites on a bunch of different websites. Hopefully, people will take time to participate and provide their info.

Great idea Cory!  I'm finally getting my personal blog up and running this week and an article on other independent sites sounds like a good way to start.

I don't sell stock directly thru my site but do receive queries concerning photography ... among other interests.

Sharing links is an excellent SEO tool.

Indeed, and we've had that domain since 2002. It's pretty embarrassing looking through the site archives now...

OK, we have a good collection of links here, so this is what we intend to do to help promote them. We'll put each in a blog post at blog.travelling-light.net with a hot-linked image from the site, posting one every couple of days. We've started with Cory, and we'll work down the list in order.

If anyone objects to us doing it this way, shout up now. Anyone wanting to return the favour, feel free to link us however you like.

the only thing I object is hot-linking the images..

I suggest that you don't hotlink to other sites as well because it may get you punished by google..
another reason is I am upgrading my sites now and when finished in a few weeks, I will add a little code in my htaccess file to prevent hot-linking.. so the image will not be visible on your blog anyway..

just a basic post and/or link will do it for me.. I will also link to the sites when I am done upgrading..

Do you have a reliable source for that ? As far as I've been able to find out, Google still sees it as a good inbound link to your site.

However, if you don't want that, no problem, we'll still give you a link. We're also giving a text link to the sites' home pages, anyway.

Good thing that you asked.. I did a quick search about it and didn't really find much except it is bad for bandwidth which is not a concern here since a credit link is being given.. I don't know why I remember it as a bad thing for SEO..

so, I guess you can hotlink to any image you prefer..
