Earlier today I finally cracked the 10,000 point mark here on Active Rain. I've been stuck in the 9900's for a while with a wicked case writer's block and I've been thinking of how I was going to celebrate breaking 10k for a while now.
Like all active members eventually realize, I get that AR isn't about the points, it's about the connections and the conversations. That's why it was cool that I cracked the milestone while sitting in Mike Mueller's blogging class and leaving a comment on a post that he created during the class.
Which brings me to the second milestone.
Meeting Mike in person today marked the first time that I've made a real life connection directly from ActiveRain. A few weeks ago, Mike contacted me and offered to teach his beginning blog class to our Keller Williams office and together we made it happen.
In case you're wondering, Mike's as genuine as he seems and his class is full of dynamite info and taught in a way that's non threatening to an agent who is new to the social web.
So in closing, I'd like to thank Mike and everyone else that I've connected with through ActiveRain. You all are what makes this place special. I look forward to meeting more of you "in real life".
