Dear Me: Day 14
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

In truth, I've never felt that connected to New Year's before. When you spend your life convinced you're not a good person and that you don't deserve good things, it's hard to appreciate the dawning of a brand new year, because for you, it's just... another year of disappointment, fear, pain and sorrow.
But this year is decidedly different. I am free of all the lead weights of years past, free of my own negativity, free of my past, free of my guilt, free of my pain and shame and anguish. For me, this truly is a brand. new. year. So today I celebrate many things: the New Year, the new life I have before me, and the the chance to finally become the person I was always *meant* to be.
I believe that we are set on a path and if things go according to plan we end up somewhere very specific. I do feel in a lot of ways that because of what happened to me that path was drastically changed. But now, I have an opportunity to still end up wherever it is I was supposed to be in the first place. Or maybe-- even somewhere better.
This year I celebrate myself. The things I've survived, the things I've conquered, and the path that I've set for myself. Welcome to Day 14, and to those who are just now joining their own paths-- Happy New Year.
