Another Achievment, another Milestone with Active Rain

Another ACHIEVEMENT, another MILESTONE with "ACTIVERAIN"

It is not just the points, it is the members, 154,655 who make this  a relationship building site. Without all of you that have left comments, 1700+ I would not be at this stage of my devotion and dedication as a blogger for Active Rain

I never realized how much I was going to  HEARTblogging with Active Rain when I posted that first blog back on January 30, 2009. The commitment to posting blogs and leaving comments became easier as the encouraging comments were left and the new friendships began to develop throughout the United States and Canada.

My first comments came from  these 6 AR members who welcomed me and gave me some tips on being a contributing active rain Newbie.

Jon Zolsky, Liz Bolton, Tony & Darcy,

Richard Weeks, Lanre Folayan and Dinah Lee Griffey

I have met the best of the best our industry as well as other related professionals.

Back in January, Lanre shared with me such encouragement and advice, he said "You can definitely reach 100,000 points in a year. Heck two people passed 200,000 point mark in their first year." Taking his advice led me to 60k today in just 6 months, I should make that 100K before 2010.

I wonder who they were that made the 200K in their first year!

Was it You? 

Lanre's  further advice was  "You are going to learn so much from the many smart, brilliant, creative, fun-loving, comical, very very unselfish real estate professionals here on Active Rain."

So true, so true

ED: I have a computer headache. WHEW! I have been trying to get rid of all that white space that appeared when I posted the blog SINCE YESTERDAY. It never happened before and for the life of me could I not get rid of all that extra space, it  would not decrease, so t said the "HXXX with it" I ll just delete it and start over with another, Thank God, this one this was is fine. I hope that never happens again, or I'll definitely be taking an AR hiatus.

UNFORTUNATELY I LOST MY 8 ORIGINAL COMMENTS, SORRY GUYS AND GALS:(

Kathleen, congrats on your achievements.  I don't remember whether if I hit 100,000 points within my first year, but I know I posted 50 blogs in one early month!

BRIAN:  Welcome to my blog. I appreciate meeting new AR members. Thank you for your Congratulations. Posting 50 blogs in one month is sensational. That must have taken much of your time. I just about make a couple a week

BTW, I love your Amish country, my firstborn son went to Messiah College, so when we visited him we would usually stay in Harrisburg and visit one of your famous Amish restaurants, like "Good and Plenty" His roommate became a minister in Lancaster, Dana Statler. Do you know him?

Kathleen, Messiah College is not far from my office.  I don't know Dana Statler, though.  Thanks for your nice comments about Lancaster County!

Brian, thank you for returning to let me know if you knew Dana.  My son earned his Bachelor of Science from Messiah majoring in Chemistry.  Fantastic school, so clean and beautiful setting conducive to learning.
