Micro-Stock - 500 images - $21 in 2 months

So is there any money in Micro-Stock photography? I thought this was a great article by Marek Uliasz right here.
See what I mean, this guy has a lot of "irons in the fire." (See previous post) Many of us want to make an extra buck or two and maybe some of us have considered micro-stock photography but the big question - "Is it worth it." This article covers the results for Mr. Uliasz's first two month experience. He has 3 informative links at the bottom of this article, too. Good info if you are interested in finding another avenue to explore in how to make a dollar or two.
