Dear Me: Day 185
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).

Day 185/365 June 21st, 2011
More work stress today. That's the way it goes in the summer. But at the end of the day, as people contemplated hitting the bar, although I declined, I did realize that I'd spent a good portion of my day worrying about stuff. Things beyond my control, issues that couldn't really be helped, and situations that will probably resolve themselves naturally anyway.
And all it got me was more stress, more worry... for what? Nothing.
I elected not to hit the bar... but I did resolve to spend less time freaking out. It didn't help anything, didn't solve the issues on my desk. Most of the time these days I'm able to stay pretty calm... but I think I need to focus on keeping that sense of calm even when things start to get a little crazy. There's still a month and a half of our official "busy season," and I don't want to waste time freaking out about stuff I can't control.
