Rainers: I SEE A "2" INSTEAD OF A "1"

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with people first...then business Ran Right Realty BRE Agent 636943

NO...I did not drink excessive eggnog, over-eat, or wear out my prescription for my glasses. Nothing that simple. Instead, after so many years which seem like a blur of months, instead of looking at my 1 (one) million plus points everyday and not paying it any attention, I looked today and something caught my eye. It now reads 2.....!

THAT'S TWO MILLION

I remember signing up, getting points and having to pay my dues at that time to join to ActiveRain to blog. I gladly did as it was too much fun to not to PLUS blogging was here to stay. So ActiveRain became my preferred platform of choice and the rest is history as they say

START YOUR BLOGGING ENGINE

I also remember wanting to not only make points, but if I could somehow, someway get to 500,000 points, I would literally have money in the bank and still be able blog, post and comment. I took the five hundred thousand point challenge and put my posting pedal to the metal. Vvvroooom (my keyboard)

100,000.00

I remember fondly hitting the 100,000 mark, Not because it brought me closer to the 500k of which it did, but because you have to respect what it takes to get to a 100,000. I paused, took it all in and began again. At 200k, I got excited because it went so quickly..Time and points fly when you are having fun

AFTER A WHILE CROCODILE

I forgot about points per say and instead just had fun blogging, posting & commenting and what have you especially with the contests. Next thing I know, I am in the land of the 400k. This is where point fever may kick in for some. You do start to count points as you approach the land of financial freedom

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

I hit 500k and enjoyed the rush of getting there and pocketing the money. Once you come down to earth, you just blog and post as usual but with the knowledge that now, perhaps getting to a nice round number may be interesting. I chose one million but no hurry.

PROOF THAT YOU BLOG

When I got to 1 million (don't ask cause I dont know how), you now are in the millionaires club. It is not an official club but you get boasting rights. I mean a million points is not something one finds on the street or has left to them in a will. What is interesting is that it now says a lot about the poster- blogger and their habits. It's a type of proof!

JOY TO THE WORLD

I don't remember how I got from one million to two million. Point fever causes black-outs (?) I suppose. But I did. I get to say and be known for two million more reasons and it does come with a nice remembrance. It's Christmas! I get to remember my two million at Xmas time. This deserves a song!

MY ENCOURAGEMENT TO YOU

(sung to the tune of come all ye faithful)

Come all ye points there, bloggers and all posters, oh come ye oh come ye to Aaa-active rain. Blog and be happy points will come I promise. Oh blog, comment and po-ost, oh blog comment and po-ost. Keep blogging and a postinggggg.... and YOU WILL re-eeach the twoooooo (2 million) tooooooo

Love your song at the end ... and now you can sing "Laughing all the way, ho ho ho" ... You sure made it fun and I'm working toward that goal and some day I'll hit that 500,000 and then I'll be joining your choir!  Congratulations on the 2 million and counting!

It's only supposed to be a number and the only significant to reach is 500,000 as it stops the payments, but it is a bog number and it represents a lot of interactive time here as well as the friendships.  Congratulations, My Friend
