Faa Milestones

Please let us know about your recent FAA milestones. If its 100 views, 100 artworks posted or 100 comments on a great work of art.

Its good to have milestones and to celebrate them knowing that all the hard work and late nights it took you to get from A to B with positive results.

I'm glad to be part of FAA and I would like to celebrate everyones growth on FAA.

My recent milestone which encouraged this post is reaching my first 10 000 views. Its been just over a year and although views don't say much becuase many can be artificial. I.E. looking at your own art. I'm still glad to celebrate this milestone on FAA. Thank you all for the comments and for this great platform. Nothing like it.

Interesting idea for a thread.

I finally hit 2500 images.

good thread!


Thanks JC, I'm glad you like the idea. It could be quite fun to see what people post.

Wow 2500, that is amazing. So many images. I'm sure it took a while to get there.

I love how the internet is constantly evolving and how we as artists are a part of it. We evolve and FAA is constantly evolving by adding more and more features etc. Its really great.

We are collectively part of a very dynamic work of human art. :) This collective social art sharing site is in itself a work of modern social art.

FAA is a milestone in human social artistic interaction.


Thanks Jessica.

I turned 50 years old today and I feel like it. Real milestone for me with all the medical problems I've had over the years.

Wow Sharon your collection is unstoppable. A steamroller that will squash us all. Well done. Nice work from the little I just looked at.

On July 4th I Celebrated my 6th year at Fine Art America.

Since joining in 2009, although I got a slow start and some paychecks have been quite small I have only missed a total of 8 - FAA paydays.

Very happy to still be here ( and to still be on the planet ). I have truly enjoyed my experiences and what I have learned from the many talented people here.

yeah i just sold a tote bag the other day as well, first one here anyway.

i'm closing in on the 2 million visitor mark, my views are back to where they should be, around 3000 a day.

passed 2700 uploads its not an even number now.

i guess that's it.

I like milestones, too, even if I don't know they are such until I arrive at them :)

In the past 2-3 months, I have had a number of firsts: European sale, repeat customer, review posted (that I know about), phone cover sale, and throw pillow sale. I have also had my first return and my first cancelled order (which was re-ordered a day later but differently) and it's good to have those under my belt :)

Two I'm trying to get to right now are 100,000 visitors (you can ignore your own IP address, Michael - option is at top of Visitors count page) and 1500 images. I'm at at 92,000 and 1374.

On June 17 I am proud to say I made my best work to date, Acts of War. My work had been developing.

From June 24 to July 6, I created 15 new works. I am gearing up for Christmas. With images that are not purely photography
supposedly as you get to 30 to 50 images you are getting towards a full portfolio to sell from. I began on Sept 1 last year with no images.
So I am getting somewhere. I began a new series, The Rustic Series, yesterday.

Paid all monthly bills (including 2 mortgages) with FAA after tax money, and still had enough to put some in the bank. Now the next month it didn't happen, but if I did it once....I can do it again!



5 Years Ago

I've been here a bit over 2 years,.... and have gotten about 25 or so sales on prints and greeting cards from buyers browsing.

I'm my own best customer,...having purchased 32 prints and 295 greeting cards.

Am not at a break even point yet,...but getting closer by the year ;-)) I hope

I enjoy the creative aspects of creating the best in each of my images and improving my FAA premium website as I grow along ;-)

I try to present new and different pieces that set themselves apart from run of the mill images and over done subjects.

Unfortunately I have chosen a narrow theme of interest,..(Down East Maine),...and therefor have limited subject interest.

FAA is the only site I display my work to sell online.

I am not active on social networks nor do I market myself as I could,...so that hurts my sales and exposure.

I derive a great deal of satisfaction from a portfolio I am proud of,....and have worked very hard to create and pull it all together.

Have especially enjoyed new friendships in various forums and groups here,....the talent and opinions expressed on FAA have helped me grow and improve each day.

FAA is a very enjoyable adventure for this guy in his retirement years.

Reached a number of milestones last month:
200 pictures, 20,000 views, 100 followers, 600th view on 1 picture. Most importantly I made my first sale.
Yesterday I set a new high for views in 24 hours with 317.
9 hours into today I already have 146 - could be on for a new record!

I just made my "30th sale" in 1-1/2 years of being with FAA.

I'll have my 5th year completed, starting my 6th on the 18th of this month. I'm trying to hit 3,000 images by the end of the year. I have 42 to go. That's after deleting over 500 images since I started that were not up to snuff. It's easier to tell now what will print and what won't. If I could just figure out what sells :-). Although, the Michigan landmark and shorelines sell better for me than any of the others, which I guess is a good thing since that's where I live....

The other day I hit 20,000 views, at least according to my profile page, "behind the scene's" says something different.

Wow...compared to all the milestones above, am falling way short. Am overwhelmed by the talent and inspiration of so many artists showcased on FAA. But it does feel good tonight to see the number 300 + images for my uploaded count..and 9000 more visits than I had when i started :-).

Hit another milestone today of uploading 200 images. Hopefully will be hitting 300 very soon because I've got plenty more to add...but it's just finding the time and the right keywords is what's holding me back.

My 200th artwork piece:

When this thread started I had 2500 images uploaded that I mentioned in the first post.

Today I am above 5000.

25,000 recorded visitors, of which (I estimate) about 1% are real people and not me.

But, it was an excuse to post here.

I think my AW and the collections are looking at their very best.

So, I am happy with this small corner of my virtual world.



I have passed the Milestone of having 900 Followers on FAA / Pixels ( 14/03/2021 )

and overpassed 900 sales
and also overpassed 800.000 visitors
yayy :)


Renata Natale

One of my images reached over 500 views, which is what I asked for, so for me, a big milestone.


Roy Erickson

23 Days Ago

Thank you Marlene - made me laugh - not just smile.

I have over 900 images here (even after deleting several a couple days back) since 2009

and I have over 3,250 on my other photograph account. since 2013

FAA - milestones are usually showing positive improvement - at least it should for the photographer / artist - but the milestones seem to have gone backwards - I'm sure it's been a plus for FAA/Pixels - but not so much for the payees.

Having joined FAA 11/22/2020 I have 36000+ views, I had 3 sales at 3 months time, am now Admin as of 03/2021 to the Simply White Gallery and I'm learning a lot and making acquaintances here on FAA. Not being able to travel much the past year, I feel like I'm traveling all over the world here and I'm loving viewing everyone's images that take me beyond home and work. ~ Linda

Finally this month, payment accepted so I'm uploading more, already seeing an increase in views.
