Many are also creating specialist blog resources using their own experience to guide others (like this site!).

I'm sure I read that somewhere else along the way and just paraphrased it, either way it sounds better than "blogger".

Keep up the good work on microstockdiaries lee, you have way of crystallising several different aspects of current microstock news into a few succinct paragraphs, after reading a new post I often find myself sitting back and thinking "yes that's exactly what's happening why didn't I spot that sooner!"

Ann (not verified) on Wed, 2010-01-06 04:19
Shortly before LuckyOliver folded up its tent, one of its members, Josh, created The Looneybin forum, http://thelooneybinforum.com/, for many LO contributors wanted to stay in touch, and share info about microstock, photography. http://thelooneybinimages.blogspot.com/ - microstock images blog. Another member, henrik, created a microstock images blog that several forum members contribute to. Anyone interested in microstock is welcome to join! smiles - Ann
