Thank you very much for my unexpected Gold Star

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Select Realtors-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC SP98364271

Okay this must be some kind of joke or something-Seriously. I open my Active Rain inbox and I see a lot of comments on a blog that I recently just wrote.

Karen Mansour of Coldwell Banker Fort Lauderdale Beach just wrote a blog that is now featured called Who gets points/gold stars and why? What is the new criteria?- a must read for all Active Rain members.

First person to make a comment on her blog was Jackie - (770.469.7385). Her comments were


I do not understand AR's criteria for featuring posts, and I wonder about a couple of people I see featured over and over again, but as my Dad taught me - if you don't pay you have no say. Once a week or so, Lanre Folayan has a blog post on Five non featured Active Rain blogs that you probably missed . Maybe other AR users should start doing the same.

I thanked her for mentioning me and my blog in the comment that I later left on Karen's blog. But when I just saw a Gold star on my blog,honestly speaking I WAS SHOCKED! Seriously. It is my second one this year. So to Karen Monsour,REALTOR® Broward,Palm Beach,Miami/Dade! 954-464-4194 anytime! (Coldwell Banker Fort Lauderdale Beach) and Jackie - (770.469.7385) and of course the very talented,creative and hard working Active Rain Staff,from the bottom of my ,I want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR MAKING Five non featured Active Rain blogs that you probably missed a featured blog.

Very cool Lanre!! The AR guys are all over Karen's post. Articles like her's are how they keep their fingers on the pulse of the network.

Just keep doing your best. That's what it's all about.

I was so grateful to Jackie for posted that in her comments, too, Lanre.  Otherwise, I may never have found out about your lovely blog.  I think it's great that you find content that you like and feature it on your site for others to take a look at.

Lanre, I think your approach is terrific.  Instead of sitting around complaining about the AR staff not picking all the best posts, you find five of your own to highlight.  Way to go!
