What a difference a year makes. On October 31, 2011, I became an ActiveRain Rainmaker – and a real, live blogger. In fact, one year ago today, filled with anticipation and trepidation, I awkwardly embarked upon my ActiveRain journey – a journey which can only be described as "Awesome."
Like most ActiveRain Newbies, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. All I knew was that I had to start at "Square One." And, although I’ve always been the type of gal who "jumps in with both feet" once I have made up my mind to do something – to say I was nervously terrified is an understatement. Nonetheless, with my heart beating a mile a minute – I posted this very first blog entry. Okay, now what? What do I do next? Well, with some persistence, it didn't take long to turn my fear into unbridled enthusiasm. It didn't take long to turn my uncertainties into "baby step" accomplishments. After several weeks, I even wrote a post for Newbies, about a Newbie's perspective and advice for getting the most out of being a Newbie. At the same time, I browsed through and read numerous blogs, clicked on a whole bunch of links, and visited ActiveRain University regularly. Quickly, I found a seemingly never-ending wealth of information all over the place!
How many ActiveRain members celebrate 20,000 points?At least one member I know, for sure. Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, the points are nice – but they're not everything. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest mentors around. I appreciate the opportunity to access knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly ActiveRain staff. I appreciate the opportunity to befriend and connect with colleagues all over the country who provide assistance, encouragement, friendship, and support. I am grateful for the multitude of benefits which accompany my ActiveRain membership. In my opinion, the points are secondary. So, with all the great reasons for being an ActiveRain member – as my Grandma Kate used to say: "What's Not To Like?"
With most things in life, you have to crawl before you learn to walk. Not surprisingly, I've discovered that in order to be successful here, it takes a commitment to blogging, a commitment to building trusting relationships, and a commitment to active learning. And, although my ActiveRain adventure has led me down a long and winding road over the past year, I realize that I still have quite a distance to go. Lifelong learning has remained a part of my every day existence – especially since the world constantly changes and advances. That being said, ActiveRain has been a true gift which has enhanced and enriched my life. And for this gift, all I can say is – Thank You.
