At least once a day a new blogger on Active Rain asks how do I make my posts stand out. Here are three simple tests and a reminder that success with blogging or any social media tool doesn't happen overnight. For many it is a long process that is nurtured on a daily basis.
...is based upon our ability to overcome that which has obstructed our ability to achieve true success. Points seem to be a large part of discussion here for various reasons--some have lots of points, others have very few; some expect more points, others would 'give them away' if they had an opportunity.
Plain and simply, the points are the 'way of the world' here on ActiveRain. We receive points when we sign up and complete our profile. For some strange reason, as many times as I've changed my profile, I cannot reach that 'maximum' available number of points though! Have I lost sleep over it? Not on your life!
We receive points for commenting on others' posts and vice versa. Do you wish more people would comment on your blog? Of course--but, you can only get to so many members in one day so, be careful what you wish for!
Points are given for contests--and it's very exciting when we receive those points! Everyone should enter at least one to see just how exciting these contests can be--enjoy the competition!
Points are given for the posts that we write--and occasional bonus points are given for those that are worthy of a feature. We ALL love to be featured but, feature posts must, at a minimum, include the following:
1. Few, if any, grammatical errors. 2. GOOD content--something that will be 'worth' the read that is accurate as well. 3. Include at least one graphic or photo.
All that being said, I believe Stewart Emery's message in Mastery, "Removal of resentment toward the masters" is a powerful message that we, as ActiveRain members, need to grasp. Rather than resent those who are the masters, those who have perfected the 'art' of blogging, of writing, of reciprocating others' posts and comments, and those who have perfected the technical abilities to be successful here in the Rain and on other social medium--we should EMBRACE them and learn from them.
We should wrap our minds and arms around those who ARE the "masters" rather than be resentful towards them. I think we will absorb more--not only in our careers but, in our lives.
Those who are successful in life do just that--embrace those who are successful and then build upon their successes...
