Photrade Made Me A Professional Photographer

OK, maybe that is stretching the truth a little too far, but the thing is I did actually sell a photo on Photrade and although I am far from being a true pro photographer, having sold one does sort of make you feel that way. Having said that, I reckon that if told my mates I was a pro they would surely take the crap out of me. Anyway, out of all the photos I have listed, this is the one that that they bought. I have no idea why they picked that particular photo, perhaps it was for an ad on how not to take a photo of tomatoes, or some school instructing their students on how you should take out the worm ridden tomato out of the group before you take a photo of it. :doh_tb: I used to have my photos on flickr but then I found Photrade which gave me the opportunity of turning my photos into a money making venture.[eminimall]

I later found out that Andy Baily's CommentLuv Plugin wouldn't work, and I really wanted to reward my readers for leaving a comment.

Anyway, no matter what I tried I couldn't get it to work. Then I remembered that Brian's Threaded Comments plugin used its own comments.php and viola it worked a charm. So now, not only can you get a little link love, you can also reply to a particular comment as this blog now supports nested comments. Also don't forget that I use the dofollow plugin so comments will be picked up by the search engines. I think after all that I deserve a martini or something.

Excuse me young man, what is a blog So many talk of it I am simply agog Is it something that I can eat Please tell me, that would be a treat No worries pop, it's a diary of sorts Don't get so stressed, don't eat your shorts People record their thoughts and dreams Businesses may even take it to the extreme But why do they waste their time I'm sure they do not make a dime Why would you waste so much effort I am sure they sell themselves short Are you kidding me you silly old coot People like ProBlogger are makin the loot They make so much they quit their jobs They work from home to make a bob That makes no sense I am bemused Even more than that I am confused How can a blog make you money That's like believing in the Easter Bunny Freak me out, you old baby boomer That is so droll it has no humor Blogs are really fully sick Sites like adsense makes them tick Ah blogs are for the sick now I see Blogs are therapy, you must agree People write to vent their spleen So in time their slate becomes clean Hey dude, are you for real Fully sick means the real deal There are those that blog for fun And others to get their job done Now young man don't take that tone I'm sure that your parents at home Taught you to treat elders with respect Right…
