I apologize to anyone that showed up yesterday and was greeted with a big red warning. Apparently, Google decided to flag me for malware. I’m not sure if I was hacked, but I had to get my extermination equipment (a blowtorch) out. I burned the house down and rebuilt it yesterday. Then, resubmitted my site to Google for the all clear (no evil bugs).
Please, bear with me over the next few days while I fix things I broke during my “housecleaning”. Ironically, one of the things that got purged was Google Adsense. I guess this hurts Google too.
Speaking of Google, it’s great that they are fighting the nefarious forces on the internet, but it is a little disturbing that they can just slap a contaminated label on your website with no questions asked. There seems like there should be a more gentle way to do that.

It seemed like all the agencies I participate at did pretty well this month. The result was that it was my best earning month in a year. Clipartof passed Shutterstock for the second time and was my top earner.
My own site, MyStockVectors.com, was my 4th best earner this month. Dreamstime just barely edged it out. I created a few new series of images at my site and ended the month with over 5800 images.
New characters from the Armored Animals series.
Other than that, there is not too much to report. Canstock had a solid month and I did some custom work through Drawshop’s interface (which seemed to work fairly well). Feel free to add a comment below or post a link to how your March went.
