23 years old here.
1347 sales, 216 days and 1 brand new silver paw.
I would like to take this chance to thanks everyone(buyers, authors and reviewers) for the constant support which lead me to where I am now. I definitely cannot do it without all of you.
I chanced upon graphicriver somewhere in august 2011 and I thought to myself if I should try and upload some design here. At that time, I wasn’t really sure if it will work out well but I eventually decided to give it a go.
I uploaded my first business card design and got approved on the 27 August 2011. Like many others, I waited patiently for my first sale and it eventually came. I still remember the excitement in me during that moment. Since then, I started uploading items in a regular basis.
Similar to most authors, I had my bad days with item rejected and zero sale but because of that I became stronger. I learned from it, understood what was wrong and made better design. I could never done it without the help of the reviewers and authors feedback. Buyers simply kept me going with the assurance they provide.
For those authors that are new to any marketplace, don’t give up because of a rejection of an item. Instead, learn from it and come back with a better work. I believe that one can fail but if you keep on trying, someday you will succeed. I hope this thread gives motivation to our fellow authors(new or old). If I can do it, so can you.
PS. Sorry for the bad english.
Congrats. Now aim for 1000.

@iZZYMedia – It seems that your first item isn’t uploaded on Feb.
To be considered for the top new authors for February, your first item of the specific marketplace, in this case graphicriver, should be uploaded on February.
