The only way to become the "#1 TOP BLOGGING MEMBER" in any of these categories on ActiveRain is to BLOG, plain and simple. These folks have committed many hours of their time, their knowledge, and shared their experiences here with us.  They should be commended for all their efforts.  Who will be at the top of their field at the end of 2010?  365 days from now, you'll know. 

Although I would have loved to have gathered all these folks together for one of the greatest ActiveRain Luncheon Gatherings ever, they'll have to settle for their "much deserved" year end bonus points for rising to the top of their fields in 2009. Their work, contributions, and "value added" content is so appreciated by the Real Estate Industry, our members, the AR staff, and above all, our guests and visitors. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what these folks above and "YOU" have planned for 2010.

Congratulations!!  THANK YOU, and keep up the great work you're doing here!
