I was reading "The Lovely Wife's - What would happen if RECIPROCITY paid a vist to active rain" post . I commented. I agree with her. I do see alot of the same people commenting on the "popular kids" blog. I see the people who have huge scores getting ratings and exsorbant amounts of points. Like I said, I agree with The "Lovely Wife".
There is almost always a but....
Why does anyone care? Are we in High School again? Aren't we PROFESSIONAL's living in an ADULT world? Aren't we here to make Money? I mean.. I know its nice to have friends.. but, I dont think that the Lovely Wife or Bryant or Kristal or anyone on this blog venue will be willing to pay my bills. Right? The points to me mean really - nothing. I want the rankings on Google. I want the search engines to INDEX me.. It can be from Active rain or my personal blog.. I really don't care. I want a home buyer to look up "Homes for sale, Whitestone NY" and see MY name come up. I want someone to google MY name and come up with ME. How to contact me. I don't think that they buyers/sellers will care that I dont have as many points as Krystal or The Lovely Wife - They want to find me - a PROFESSIONAL real estate agent - who wants to pay her bills and worry about selling their home. Not how to boost my POINTs on Active rain.
Again - this is just my opinion..
