When I joined Active Rain last year, the top person in my state had about 13,000 points. I remember thinking that is a lot of points. I can't imagine writing that much.
Well here I am today with a total of 300 blog posts, 50 featured and 200,000 points.
Rank in Hawaii:
1 (Featured Member)
Rank in Honolulu County:
1 (Featured Member)
Rank in Mililani:
1 (Featured Member)
Back when I hit the 100,000 point mark I mentioned that I am a 2 finger typist. I know that surprised a few and gave others a chuckle. Believe it or not I still am a two finger guy. On a rare occasion I can get a third finger going. Old dogs sometimes really don't learn some new tricks.
Since joining Active Rain, I have made many new friends, too many to list here. I have shared a lot of my knowledge and experience, but gained much more than I gave. This forum is tremendous. I never thought I would be a blogger, but here I am.
I would be neglect if I did not thank David Kucic who invited me here. He convinced me to check out Active Rain, something I would never have done on my own. The rest is history.
Every time I think I am hitting writers block a get a surge of creative energy. I never thought I would have enough to say that I would be posting number 300. When joining Active Rain, the thought of 200,000 points was such a foreign thought. No one was even close to 100,000. With the addition of http://www.localism.com/ there were additional ways to reach the public, improve our search engine presence and gain even more points.
Since jointing I have invited a few folks. Those that did join actually join, came after me asking them more than a couple of times. The most active of that group is Woo Sally from our office at Century 21 Liberty Homes. In a very short period of time Celeste "Sally' Cheeseman has climbed to the number two blogger in Hawaii and will reach the 100,000 mark in the next few weeks.
I want to give a special thank you, to those who have created this exceptional forum for sharing of knowledge and experiences. They have done a great job of building and constantly improving Active Rain!
I also want to thank the regulars here on Active Rain who welcomed me when I first joined and encouraged me. This has been an extremely pleasant and fruitful experience and I am looking forward to next 200,000 points.
