My first cheque from Adsense!

Adsense cheque payment 1- 270308
Finally received my first payment from Google Adsense. No gimmicks! SGD$158.73, but gave it to my wife. Hahaha...
They stated on their website they will pay when I have made my first US$100. I hit the target in mid February, since I started it last December. Considered not bad, since it is a passive income. Do nothing, and it gives me US$2+ average per day.

Think my competitors (especially those following the way I blog one) saw this post, will follow also. Told my friend of these copy cats, they have no prides. But he said they won't care one, since they have no prides. Over time, nobody can tell who copy who. (Some of my friends even mistaken one of the blogs I showed them is my blog. Faint!!!) True. Given all these being equal, what I can work on now, are on the service and the quality if my artworks. They will still copy, but at least not so easy in terms of style and execution, as these need time and years of experience.
No choice. If I need to have online exposure of my artworks to the mass, I can't avoid such case.
They want to copy, let them copy. I will just move faster ahead. See how much they can/will copy. Sooner or later, all blog contents will look identical, except on the quality of artworks.

My friends asked me to add watermarks on my works. That's too much work adding to my current workload. If they want to copy the designs, they can copy and draw in their own style even if the watermark is on top of the artworks. Unless some idiots really download, cut and paste heads on it. I have nothing to say. I put up the high resolution fo my artwork online, so that my visitors and clients can appreciate the details and strokes etc. With the watermark over the artworks, they will look very awful.

Continue copying, if you really have no pride as an artist.
Be original. At least I will respect you as an artist.

pretty cool! I love your artwork but as a artist myself I completely understand where you are coming from.

Like they say, Imitation is the highest form of flattery.
