Probably Due To Network Congestion

Archive for May 2008

get this…

Friday morning my earnings at Fotolia were about 85 credits, when I got home from work at looked they were at 135 credits.
I cashed out $100 at this point leaving 35… then just a few hours later my balance had shot up to 72 credits again.

Loads of +3, some +4.5, and a few +7.5 Referral credits, and a flurry of smaller credits… Blooming amazing.

Fotolia has always surpassed any of the other sites on referrals, but today was just mad!

A little self promotion now and again works, just spend 20 minutes occasionally pushing your referral links 🙂

Bicycles in Beijing

My shot is at the top left, the ‘Bicycles in Beijing’ 🙂 I found this image with which I’d never used before but someone had found my blog with it so I gave it a go and did a bit of searching for myself. Its nice to see myself, my photography, in print 🙂 I’d be unsure which agency it was purchased from so here’s the list of places you can buy my shot:—Bike-0248905.php—Bike-0248878.php—portrait-view-of-bicycles-rimage585212
