posting: THE Q & A ACTIVERAIN FORUM BIRTHS POSTS - 08/05/15 02:34 PM
When I was in the restaurant business, we had a system that many do not know about. In fact, that business is rich in teachings involving so many aspects of life and human nature too. We used to have what they call "blackboard" specials. You have all seen them. You walk in, and on a special sign, the soup of the day, wines, desserts and entrees are presented
WE ARE TRYING SOMETHING NEW
What you don't know is that we are experimenting with new dishes all the time. How? We do a blackboard special and see what people have to say, how many we sell and … (29 comments)

posting: BUT DID YOU LIKE IT? - 08/01/15 03:17 PM
Rainer's on the go! They move fast and sometimes slow but they come and go and after a while, another day has been rained on and in and all is well. Posts, comments and blogs got a work-out, people were educated, edified and supported, and points, the e-wages of ACTIVERAIN were given as well as earned
WAIT A MINUTE!
It dawned on you just now. For some, later and for others not at all. WHAT? I forget to hit the LIKE button when I visited the posting. Darn! I clicked and entered because I liked the title, person or subject matter. Once in, my eyes … (13 comments)

posting: FIRST SIX MONTHS ON ACTIVERAIN $$$ - 07/23/15 07:04 PM
I signed up because I saw the value and I will admit the points you get for signing up just had their way with me. So now, I am a member and you have to learn to post, comment and repeat so you can suck marrow and get full value. I came around slowly but surely and got some posts out there. How thrilling to see myself on a Google front page too
REMEMBER ME?
After a few months, I get a email contact from someone who said..remember me? They went into detail on where we met and why and said they have been trying to … (6 comments)

posting: POST TOASTIES FOR BREAKFAST - 07/23/15 06:49 AM
To me, Post Toasties is part of my morning-wake call. I like to post, comment and blog as part of my morning ritual which includes coffee, a newspaper, greeting the day, thanking the day-maker and then to my online activities. ActiveRain helps get that going rather smoothly too. I visit with various Rain-making people, comment and then my fresh Postings
FRESH POSTINGS
When going online becomes a habit or a procedure that is predictable, then expect a steady and predictable response from the doing of it. It is called cause and effect. What one does with anything in life, produces a return for the doing … (8 comments)

posting: GOING POSTAL??? - 07/22/15 04:47 PM
I never give it much thought as to whether I should go public or members only when commenting or sharing data or beliefs. I usually go public as I like to be transparent as much as I can. I am cognizant however that if I have something to say just to certain folks, then member only makes sense. That is to say that I DON'T want to share with the public. WHY? It is none of their business and it doesn't help my business either
MEMBER-SPEAK
The members only (not public) to me is more like a peer to peer speak. A member whispering to another … (14 comments)

posting: IS IT SAFE TO POST? - 07/22/15 07:39 AM
I like posting, commenting and blogging. I like people and I am enjoying life moment to moment. Part of the daily excitement is never knowing what to expect thus making it an adventure with no two experiences alike but similar. Everything is connected, so expect your learning curves to be instructive and even go in cycles too
SO MUCH TO DO
I learn from watching, imitating, sensing and participating as I go. Sometimes I leap into the mix and the satisfaction of having my skills bank engaged is priceless while other times, I do so enjoy watching someone else hit the ground exploring and navigating. This is … (16 comments)

posting: ACTIVERAIN ACTIVECHANGE - 07/11/15 08:29 AM
Change is a good thing for those that want it and use it for their growth purposes. Others become comfortable and rely on consistency for their daily bread and excitement as well. It is interesting to note that nothing stays still in the Universe. Even things that appear to be permanent and reliable are in motion constantly
CYBERSPACE IS REAL?
The Internet is now the entrance to a place called cyberspace. All can enter in for whatever purpose and do business, interact or pursue personal pleasures at their leisure and necessity. Amazing this space-place that really doesn't exist and has no formal physical entrance or address yet … (13 comments)

posting: ACTIVERAIN ACTIVEGAIN ACTIVEFAME - 06/22/15 08:10 AM
For those of you out there that haven't discovered the site called ACTIVERAIN, well you are missing out just a little bit if you surf the net, enjoy posting, blogging and commenting and upping your game whatever that may be. Social or professional, this site has much to offer just from first glance and personal experience
THE VAST SEA OF REAL ESTATE
Many use the site for educational purposes. Real Estate is the main format of exchange and we all know how diverse and big a Universe... Real Estate is and can be. However, in addition to that, there are many other shares and cares going on … (28 comments)

posting: ACTIVERAIN AS A REFERENCE? - 06/06/15 03:11 PM
What is the idea or concept behind a reference? Defined: The sharing of a significant or specified matter or relationship by alluding or connecting with one another. Simply put and used by the average person at large, it is one person referring something in high esteem. A value or want is raised and someone references it...
CONSULT ACTIVERAIN
Has it occurred to you, my dear ActiveRain-ers (rain-ers) that if you have been on this site for any length of time, you not only qualify to give a reference for another but also receive one as well. If one your customers to be needs to verify their gut feeling, ActiveRain appears to be … (35 comments)

posting: WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO BLOG - 05/13/15 07:18 AM
Today, we are asked as well as wanting to know, who is who and what is what. What is it all about and how does that help me? The yellow pages are gone. Reference letters, referrals and sharp marketing and advertising can make something sparkle, glitter and appealing when it is not all that! Cereal packages do that now. 
MARKET SPEAK
If you walk down the cereal aisle of any market, you will find SUGAR, main ingredient packaged into many colorful forms, sizes, shapes, characters and colors presented cleverly as cereals. But it is really just sugar presented in many different ways. Same with soft drinks … (6 comments)

posting: BLOGGING LAND? - 05/09/15 01:26 PM
Someone once said to me when the Internet was getting started publicly...where is the Internet? I pause and then say, it is in the next room sitting on my desk is all I could think of. I was referring to my computer which was new as well. But then, the statement sunk in. My computer was one of the entrances to this world, this place of which I could not tell you where it actually is
CYBERSPACE....oh
It's in cyberspace. Okay, I know about space but can you help me with "cyber" please? It's the world of computers, where information is stored called virtual reality. … (4 comments)

posting: POINT FEVER OUTBREAKS STILL COMMON - 04/12/15 04:28 PM
For those that are addicted to getting points for whatever reason, they should have a type of icon with your choice of face or emblem that can be clicked on over and over again and after so many clicks, a point is given. The more you click, the more points until you have clicked yourself to exhaustion or arthritis...lol
MANY WAYS TO CURE
But you see if you are willing to do that, why not take an easier route? How about just composing a post and launching into cyberspace? You get more points for less effort. Another good point maker is the comment … (19 comments)

posting: GENTLE REMINDER TO WATCH WHAT YOU SAY - 03/28/15 05:09 PM
Some Persian fellow who lived at about the year of 1048 had cause to give warning in regards to what people say in print. I like his finesse, genteelness, and word to the wise. Read what follows and see if a butterfly or two doesn't flutter within you. That is all you'll need to know about the "doing" of the subject matter
The moving finger writes: and, having writ...Moves on; nor all thy Piety nor Wit... Shall lure it back to cancel half a line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it...Omar Khayyam.
Way to go O! If he was here … (4 comments)

posting: WORK IT HOWEVER DON'T BE WORKED - 03/24/15 01:53 PM
How many web sites, applications, social networks, advertisements, gadgets, doo-dads, first impression tactics, tools, leave behinds and fancy phones do you need to do your job? There is no end to the ways one can do business, attract business and maintain business. How much time do these things consume?
HELLO...OH HELLO
Do you know and remember the feeling one gets when they reach the person they want to speak with? Just take a moment to remember when someone answered their phone when you needed them to and attended to the reason why you called. How satisfying for all parties when this happens

posting: THESE THREE WOULD LOG-IN DAILY FOR SURE - 01/04/15 06:28 AM
If Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tin Man were here and alive today, they would all have ACTIVERAIN ACCOUNTS. Yes, they would log-in, have profiles, check the feature pages and then OFF to see (?) where they can add all their comments! Their yellow brick road would include their keyboard and mouse to be sure
AUNTIE EM WOULD BE PROUD
It may interest you to know that Dorothy has a built-in mouse into her shoes that most people wouldn't know about. She just has to CLICK CLICK CLICK and she is returned to her home page no problem. It helps to … (16 comments)

posting: DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE... DOUBLE YOUR FUN - 12/13/14 07:52 AM
With two posts..two posts... two posts in one. Yes, one click and you get two posts! Now that is value in today's online world of cyberspace and clicking around. The topics were inspired by some features that I read and I will share the effect they had on me using the Richie two-post method
post #1....CHRISTMAS CARDS...etc.
If you go back decades or even centuries when time, paper, ink and postal services were really appreciated, getting a communication or letter was a big deal and occasion. If you received a parcel, bigger still. It was personal and coveted and not only a keep sake … (4 comments)

posting: GIVE THESE MINTS AWAY GENEROUSLY - 11/24/14 07:06 AM
COMM-MINTS...Tasty little mint visits these are. Imagine getting a box of these in the mail? Next time you visit a posting of your liking, leave that original poster (OP) a comm-mint. It can be 1-2 words worth or a one liner or if you have chocolate-giving heart, a paragraph of sharing
COMM-MINTS
I can see if you had to pay for this privilege and how you may be hesitant or slow to respond...maybe even reluctant for your personal considerations but when it costs you nothing and you are already there, why not? Leave the COMM-MINT of your choice in that little box adjacent to your … (5 comments)

posting: GIVE THE GIFT OF A POST SEASON IS HERE - 10/30/14 05:02 PM
It is as simple as the title of this post says. Take a moment to do a post about a peer, friend, place of business, family member or associate and make it personal. Its exactly what the Hallmark card people do. There is something about seeing something in print...isn't there? It makes it extra-special
I APPRECIATE YOU
It doesn't have to grand or deep but instead an acknowledgment from you to them that in your words, what you are saying really amounts to this underlying theme as follows: I am glad we are going through life together. I recognize the value and I … (6 comments)

posting: KERRIE SAYS RELAX 10 IS THE NEW 20 NOW - 10/23/14 07:27 AM
Many are relieved for the news of blogs going BACK DOWN to 10 per week (points wise) from the 20 per week that was allowed. For a while there, it was interesting to see people who live for points and rankings (for whatever reasons) turn it up and toss them out. Quantity versus quality had prevailed
WHAT BECAME OF IT?
Many refused citing personal and professional reasons for not wanting or being able to rise to this carpel tunnel making challenge (lol) and just did not participate with all their ACTIVERAIN-HEARTS activated. I am reminded that the little things that people like or need … (21 comments)

posting: THIRD ANNUAL EVERYTHING IS THE OPPOSITE POST - 10/22/14 04:35 PM
That's right! After this paragraph, everything in this post will mean the opposite. Your comments must mean the opposite as well. Do not forget this while reading as some words may sting you but not if you remember its the opposite of the word used and not the words. This is all the warning you get...
HERE WE GO
1. Guys...I sure wish you didn't drop in just now. Let's not do this again
2. This post is too hard to participate in
3. I don't blog for points nor do I like being in the Rain either
4. Google juice will drown you … (41 comments)
