There was a bit of frustration surrounding these stock media collections - I tried selling all these collections of stock textures and stock footage together on DVD but generally nobody would buy them for more than a few cents on eBay.  That, of course, meant that mailing the stock media discs was a money-losing proposition, and although the few people who did buy gave me strong reviews, it wasn't a successful product line.  The breaking point came when I tried to give away copies of the disc to anyone who would respond to a poll that was open for thirty days.  Nobody at all voted in the poll, which in my view indicated that my product would never sell, nobody wanted it, and that I should give up on all attempts to sell it.  After some tears, a rough financial stretch, and a public meltdown on my Facebook page, I finally opted to release all my stock media for free on this website, in hopes that *eventually* it'd be generating enough revenue indirectly to break even and maybe even justify making more of it.  It's been freeware for about a year now and so far is roughly 1% of the way to recouping the cost of making it in the first place.
Maybe it'll break even in a decade or two?  This was frustrating primarily because I put so much effort into this content and had been hoping it would sell well enough to allow me to complete my unfinished video and video game projects.  Though my stock media misfired badly, I'm happy that my handmade art sales and freelance gigs are starting to take off now.  So at least something is working.
