ActiveRain Has its 1st Million Point Member!

 

ActiveRain's 1st million point member!

 

OK, I'm just kidding. I'm really not even close to a million points! But some of your friends here in the Rain are. And, in a very short time, a few of them will become the 1st million point members here in the Rain.

Will it be Todd Clark of Beaverton, OR, who is currently sitting on 933,850 points?
Will it be Lenn Harley of Rockville, MD, with her 899,232 points?

Will it be you?

It's going to happen. And very soon too.

I wonder what plans the good folks at ActiveRain have planned for this momentous occasion...
Any suggestions?

Todd Clark will be first at 1 million points unless he stops collecting points for enough time for Lenn Harley to catch up.

HOWEVER, if the ActiveRain Gods award me enough bonus points to jump sufficiently ahead of Todd, then I'll get to 1 million points first.  Alternatively, they could give me access to the point awards system so I could award them to myself. :)

Toula - Both Todd and Lenn blog daily. But you might be right. He does have a sizable lead. Looking forward to finally meeting you tomorrow!

Bob - I couldn't agree more Bob, It's not about the points. It's about the learning, sharing and relationship building. But this is quite a milestone.

Darrell - Your vote has been tallied!

June - Thank you June! I agree with your assessment wholeheartedly!

Charles - A Y2K incident! That's too funny! But I am wondering what, if anything will be done in recognition.

Jim - I like that idea Jim!

Richard - You're too connected to ever miss out on a milestone such as this my friend.

Jenny - Just so long as you don't go back and read any of my first few posts! They stink!

Thankfully, my blog has evolved over the years!

Mary -Ahhh, the bacon briefcase! You, my friend are the sole recipient of that little trinket! However, I agree, it would make a great and fitting reward!

Cathy - Hang in there my friend! You're so close. And once you hit that 1st 100,000 point mark, the next 100K comes so much quicker.

Todd - Hey Todd! Yes, we are taking bets. Please just leave a brown paper bag with your money next to the bench in the park. My associate Vinny the Fish will pick it up and let you know if you've won!!! Keep up the great work my friend.

Andrea - I eat dinner everyday so your suggestion works for me!!!

Leesa - I like your thought process Leesa. But, you'll be there long before I am. Maybe you'll let me have my picture taken with you as you receive your recognition!!!

Jackie - You're less than 12,000 points away Jackie. And once you hit that 1st 100,000 point mark, the next 100K comes so much quicker.

Larry - Or AR could always go hi-tech and publish an e-book of those favorite blogs.

Betina - AR has definitely come a long way from it's humble beginnings.

Marc - I'll suggest at the next "bored" meeting that the AR gods let you handle the dolling out of the points!!!

Tom - By the time I hit one million points, I'll be so old my posts will originate from the home my kid puts me in!!!

Kristin - Well thank you Kristin! Sadly, it'll be a VERY long time before I achieve that mark. 

Betsy - Agreed! Hopefully all their blogging efforts are bringing in lots and lots of business for them.

Well Craig, like everyone else I was wondering how you jumped so quick. Figured you were getting extra bonus points from the AR Gods, possibly black mail points. Then the reality hit, there''s almost 35,000 points in differential with Todd putting points up at the rate of about 750/day. This could have him hitting 1,000,000 in less than 100 days or almost the end of May. Lenn puts up points at the rate of around 700/day so she needs just under 5 months of by the end of July, I should reach that number by the end of July also, but alas 2020. Boy don't I feel better now :o((

A million points! I can't imagine. But I couldn't imagine 100k when I first started on AR. It is one little blog post at a time. Remember the rabbit and the turtle race! Slow and Steady Keep On Blogging Everybody!

Ed - No black mailing here...even though I hav some serious dirt on Brad!!!

Jean Paul - Just keep at it my friend. You'll be there before you know it!

Dick and Dixie - Slow and steady wins the race. After the 1st 100K it seems to get easier.

Old Men's minds work strange. I have been watching Todd's and Lenn's blogs and also contributing, and I remembered this post. At the time 2/13/10 I thought Todd would reach 1,000,000 by the end of May, and it would appear that he will probably reach it by early May, so I was off a few weeks. Lenn is staying the course for a July point accumulation of 1,000,000. I'm still on a course to hit my 1,000,000 by 2020 if I'm still coherent or alive.

Rebecca - Lenn is definitely closing in. Both of them are so prolific in their blogging, it's going to be a great race to one million!

Ed - You already won Al & Peggy's "guess the point" contest. You beat me by one blog and 5 comments worth of points! But I'm thinking you're probably right on the money with your guesses here.....even your estimate of when you'll hit the million point mark!

Craig, well I guess we know the answer to that question...Todd's the big winner!  As for I might attain that lofty goal...like Ed the year 2020 sounds about right to me...ditto his provisions..."coherent or alive"!!!
