Community Guidelines Of ActiveRain

ActiveRain guidelines are pretty simple and much like running a business or living your every day life.

Do what is right, be honest, make others feel good, offer help when you can, educate yourself  and  make sure to enjoy what you are doing.

That kind of sums up the community guidelines.

 

 Community Guidelines

 

ActiveRain, with so many members, may seem so big that you could not possibly be heard. With so many members who have been here since the beginning, you might feel you could never fit in. 

 

 Start off slow, go read a bunch of blogs and make lots of comments.

Pretty soon you'll feel ready to blog.  

Feel free to write whatever you want from your viewpoint. It's yours!

Members, who comment on your blog post, might have things in common with you, will want to talk with you and will want to know more about you.

The added bonus... they may want to do business with you and friendships will be formed.

There will occasionally be someone who does not agree with your point of view. How you handle these interactions will speak volumes about you. When you disagree it may be better to write your own post on the subject. When someone disagrees with you, an option may be to email or call that person and find out what their "beef" is about.

Over the years, I have called at least one member a day since 2006.

Personal contact (with Rainers, friends, family and clients)  keeps the lines of communications open.

 

 

Check out the Community Guidelines.

They should have classes in high school regarding navigating through the different personalities successfully. Instead, we are thrust into a learn as you go environment which for some creates additional problems. Margaret encourages us, as we all should, to make it easier not harder to succeed here

Thanks for your post, taking an effort of calling one member is a great idea. I am kind of a lone wolf myself and for me being in the rain is a step forward to learning and sharing and being a good member.

Your post is right on target.  Being new to the Rain is kind of like being the new kid in the lunchroom at your new school... observe, be nice and someone will reach out to you.  From there, relationships will be developed!
