OK. Own up who has checked their sales over the holiday period? Possibly justified with the odd Sunday sale but really...? Is it a learned physical habit or a worrying sign of a compulsive disorder? And who has been catching up on their keywording and who is waiting for the New Year?

Guilty as charged. :(

 

But, 7 sales came in on the 23rd so a heart warming experience.  :)

I once had a sale on New Year's Eve, so yes, I'm checking.

One sale on 23rd December. Two photos cleared, one on the 24th and another on the 26th.

Started key wording again today !

Checked sales yesterday....three personal uses. One refunded...nice, they have the file free of charge. The other two are two different pix of a leper begging in India.....perfect for that unusual greetings card !!

Santa has still not brought the much asked for button to opt out of personal use sales....I wont hold my breath  :angry:

OCD? What OCD?

 

A PU sale showed up on the 23rd.

 

Keywording can wait...

I'd been purposely uploading madly before the break knowing (or hoping) that I'd have more time than usual to keyword whilst off work. Today was a planned day of keywording, and it's kinda gone to plan, between playing with Christmas toys

Can't help but check, habit.

One dropped in today.

Leaving keywording until the new MI appears ( was hoping to have it in place for this week)

Have a great new year everyone

Against my better judgment my wife persuaded me to check my sales on Christmas morning and against all the odds I had a sale dated 25th dec for a personal use. Not great money of course but a sale on Christmas morning!!!!!!!.

I've had some images keyworded yesterday go on sale today, no sales or zooms notified since 24th, no images QC pass/fail since 23rd and a Live News image published today without Alamy letting me know (sometimes they do, but not always). I'd guess they've got a skeleton staff in.

I only have a tiny port but still checking and nothing, will be uploading few more during the week. Looks like I might need a seat next to Tony if there's space.

Happy Snapping

I was wondering who "sly stone" was. I had a misprint for "sky" on 11 images.

Still don't know who that is.

I had one on Christmas Eve that would have easily paid for three mince pies. And several newspapery ones since.

I'm guilty of checking for sales on a daily basis. BUT, I completed all my uploads and keywording by Christmas Eve and have forced myself to have a break until 2017. It's another life!! I've even had time to play with my Grandsons - even more exhausting but relatively stress free!!

I got a free mince pie on a steam train yesterday, must have been one of that sort.
