Blish.com


I received the following letter Trying to check it out. Anyone know anything about Blish.com?

Tue, 13 Mar 2007 13:31:43 -0700

I recently visited your website and was very impressed by the
professionalism of your portfolio.

I'm contacting you and a handful of other talented creators who I have
identified to tell you about a digital marketplace that we have
launched last February called BlishT (www.blish.com). Blish is a fully digital
marketplace that will sell all forms of digital content - everything
from audio files, video files, eBooks, software, stock photography, and
many more digital areas to come.

Just to give you a little background, this is by no means a small
operation. Blish is part of a much larger, publicly-traded company that
will be spending many thousands of dollars each month driving
purchase-minded consumers to the site. We intend to make Blish the default place
that people will go to when they are looking to purchase any kind of
digital content.

In essence, we really want creators of your caliber to set the bar in
terms of quality for our sections. The way Blish works is we will allow
you to set the price for each product, tag each listing, and earn a 50%
commission each time it sells. This is truly a great way for you to
gain mass-exposure, while making a decent profit as well. If this sounds
like something you'd be interested in, please email me at
nwetmore@blish.com and we can discuss our next steps.

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you,

"Blish is part of a much larger, publicly-traded company" that shall remain mysteriously nameless?

That's the sign of true BS.

  Not mysteriously nameless, just not in the email. Visit their site and they are pretty open about who they are: http://www.blish.com/General/AboutUs.aspx. They may or may not be a good place to sell your stock photos. Be sure to read their contracts/agreements carefully to be sure of what you'll get for your images.
