Although the word “marketplace” implies business, it seems that a number of authors are here for reasons which have nothing to do with money, or at least, money isn’t the primary concern.

So, what brings you here, and what makes you come back week after week?

Personally as of next year it’s certainly business. I will be pursuing a full time career as an envato author.

It was originally just a place for me to use files i never got the chance to use in my everyday work. But then, surprise to me, they seemed to sell well enough! So i’ll be making more of an effort to put better files up as regularly as possible. Eveyone is so nice on here to i hope to make some friends!

I like this disease called “design”. Don’t want to be poetic but this is how i feel. I really like designing stuff and showing it to the world.

The bad part is that you can’t live just with that so while i’m here i’m trying to earn some money too.

But i could say Art is a hobby for me, my biggest hobby. :)
