   Hello. I want to thank you all for your feedback and for answering my questions (and I had some) during this past year.
   Today I reached the first 500$ at SS. It took me one year and 3 days, and 998 dlds, and a port of 643 images today. It was a slow journey for me it seems, but I learned many things about photography and it was an interesting journey. Hope I'll hit some great salers and shorten the way to the next milestone of 3000.

   PS: As this was discussed in others topics, I want to share the percentage of sales, as this was a question for me at the beginning, and maybe it'll help some newbies (I am also new to MS).
   25-a-day   45.70%
   OD           23.48%
   SOD           2.60%
   EL            27.93%
   ref             0.29% (this is not relevant as it may vary alot)
   I also noticed that I have one EL/200dlds, steady in the past 3 months with one a month. Also, more than half of the money were made in the last 3 months, so it started very slow but going pretty steady from a point.

   PS2: I have something like 15 editorial images, bad sellers, but it was an editorial that hit the milestone, the second sale in 7 months for the file, for 1.88  :)

Congratulations :)

I hope I can get to that milestone faster.

Btw, I remember you saying at some point that you don't get enough downloads on SS ( something like only 7 a day, regardless of how many pics you upload ). Did that situation change?

Congrats!  I'm hoping to reach that milestone this year too, although so far this year I haven't been able to put in the work that's needed :(

   @ morning.light: No, I am now at this number :( but I discussed about the numbers in another topic. I had some months with 30 dsdl, then a jump at 60, and then a big jump to 170. Now I'm stucked here. For eg, dec 171dlds, ian 171dlds. Weird, no?
Febr has grown a little with 179 in 28 days, and this month I'm at that average.
But the money gone up due to ODs. Now I hope seeing in increase of at least 32% in terms of $, and hope next jump in terms of dlds is not far, as my port increased in this period.

I wish you good luck!  I'm interested in your evolution since we're from the same country, we're both new in this business and our style is also a bit similar ( you seem to be a mountain lover like me  ;D )
