  4. Help Ed Rooney

    Yes, I could not agree more! And with all the bad stuff we get on the news (especially in the USA), I am reminded just how good people can be to one another!!!
  5. Help Ed Rooney

    Well done Alamy!
  6. Anyone submit jpegs for stock?

    Edo, to your original post, I usually shot in RAW and JPEG combined but often the JPEGs are great, right out of the camera. I would not hesitate to shoot and submit those JPEGs if that is all you can do for now.

    I am not Catholic or religious, for that matter, but was raised with the "Golden Rule". Edo, I put something in the kitty, I hope all goes well for you! Michael

  13. February over already?

    So is this the "How was your (insert month)?" thread? February was a little better than average with help from a nice surge today! 19 sales for $918, 3 of them were $100+. Given how things have been, I am happy.

  18. Never on Monday (or Friday)?

    I was thinking about it after my post and perhaps one reason I feel like sales are scarce on Mondays, is often I don’t see them until Tuesday since they post after I have gone to bed.
  19. Never on Monday (or Friday)?

    Well this interesting and little embarrassing....for some reason I also thought that Mondays and Fridays had fewer sales reported but when I went back three months at tallied up the sales to the days of the week, here were my results. Sun 2 Mon 10 Tues 5 Wed 8 Thu 4 Fri 9 Sat 0 So in fact, Mondays and Fridays are my best days for the last three months.....Ha!
