Dear Me: Day 191
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Day 191/365 June 27th, 2011
It's been a long week already and it's only Monday. I have a feeling it's only going to get worse. But despite my sudden realization that I'm in for some long hours at work, things are still pretty ok. I'm getting a lot of positive feedback, not just for my work, but for my spirit and it's encouraging.
Despite being busy, I'm managing to keep my desk under control, and although my hours are getting longer-- it's really more because of the sheer volume of work coming in, not because I can't manage what I have on my plate. I think when the season is over, I might actually go so far as to ask for a raise. Which is.. unprecedented for me. FIrst of all, I don't think I've ever worked at a job long enough to even think of asking for one. And the only jobs I have worked at long enough-- well, they weren't exactly the kind of work you can ask for a raise for. They were more... thank god I'm employed at all kind of jobs.
But I work hard here. And I'm appreciated, and my work gets noticed. I've been there for more than a year (seriously amazing), in fact by the time Summer is over, I'll have been there a year and a half. Maybe it's time I stuck my neck out and asked to be rewarded, officially, for the work I do.
Lord knows by the time this week is over, I will certainly have put in some serious time.
