Thank You ActiveRain... For Giving Me Google Juice AND a Mug to Use to Drink It!

Home Stager with Room Service Home Staging

Thank You ActiveRain for giving me Google juice and a mug to use to drink it!

ActiveRain recently celebrated their 5th Anniversary and of course this was not a milestone to be passed over!  And in their never ending quest to get us to write about our local activities and establishments they held yet another of the infamous Active Rain challenges... Win a Piece of AR History.

No it wasn't for points and the winners were picked via a drawing but I make it a policy never to turn down a reasonable challenge!   You were required to write a local hyper-local  post on where you might hold an Anniversary event if Active Rain were in your area.  The prize?  An Active Rain Tumbler!

Ok... laugh if you will but that's not all I got... it got me on the first page of Google if you type in Atlantic Avenue Delray Beach.   I'm towards the bottom but I'll try to work my way up!

Take a look at my Piece of AR History!

Love it!  I still can't believe that AR is only 5 years old.  Seems like we've been here much longer than that!

Congratulations on a job well done: the blog post and the google placement. I think I heard about this contest, but I think we should have a bulletin type board that tells us which contests are going on at any one time. We have a group for contests, but there is so much other stuff there that you have sift through everything.

Frank & Karen- using my tumbler as I write!

Lanre- many thanks... hope it keeps flowing.

Sharon- I'd say that ActiveRain better get some more goodies for us!

Evelyn- isn't is it funny what we'll do for a freebie!

John- you've got that right.  Challenges and points aside... it's all about the juice!

Stephen- thanks... no points but hey... a tumbler!!

Lina- oh how funny... and if you look at all of the hours we spend here.. it does seem like that!

Sharon- and you as well.  Hope you have something fun planned.

Anna- thanks... juice.. healthy for you too!

Mike- thanks... I'm always Googling !

Sandi- I think I smell a good blog on that and I hope to see it from you soon!!!! I agree, we have the Contest group but there's so much to keep up with here that I don't get around to checking that group.

Louise- the challenges are fun and if you participate in them.. everyone's a winner.

Richie- must be esp...  I hadn't read your comment when I wrote my response to Louise!  If we're here and actively participating.. we're all winners.

Kathy - congratulations on getting the tumbler AND the cool feature!  I love the way you framed it and tied it to your Google Juice - great job!  I won a tumbler too and can not wait for it to arrive - perhaps it will be there when I get to the office on Monday!  Enjoy your Google juice, tumbler & weekend!

Congratulations, Kathy! I was one of the fortunate "drawees," too. It's really a nice stainless steel tumbler, and it will replace my ugly black plastic one.

I was a little disappointed when I got it, not because it wasn't great, but simply because my cell phone had "quit" the first day of church camp and I was away from home with no phone for a week. When my office called several days later to let me know the "package" I was looking for had finally arrived, I made a trip to the office only to find a tumbler and no phone lol

Congrats on winning the AR prize. I also won and was very happy to be a winner. I have not had the opportunity to write my blog about the tumbler but seeing your blog gave me some confidence to tackle a blog.. I hope you get some business from the google juice..

Barbara- I bet it will be waiting for you. And Congrats on your win!!  I used Picnik for the frame!  Hope you're having a great weekend.

Donnie- congratulations on your win and I cannot imagine being without my phone!!! I took mine in last year and when they said they would have to have it for about an hour I was speechless.  I didn't know what to do because my shopping list, etc is on  it.

Robert- Congrats on your win as well!  Go on....take a picture and post your blog!  If it were spring I'd say put some Texas bluebonnets in it!  (I'm a native Houstonian.)!
