Now - 40 days and 40 nights later.......what are the results? Well, some can be measured and some cannot.
One featured post, one neighborhood featured post, one called shot. I have made 320 comments and have received 159 comments. Of my 57 blog posts, I had two series:
WHAT?!? More than the POINTS??? What about the SUCCESS which cannot be measured with points? Here's my REAL success story on Active Rain - and yes, it was a FLOOD!
The very first post I made was on Memorial Day. This set the tone and focus of my presence on Active Rain - my passion for serving the men and women of the United States milary. The very first comment I received on Active Rain on my very first blog was from a member of AR that I have come to greatly admire, Cindy Jones of Virgina.
"........Is there a way to denote the boots? My donation would be in the rememberance of my husband William Jones who died on Active Duty in the Middle East. I would wear them with pride but also know that I am fortunate to be able to afford a new pair of shoes and there are those who can't. Just let me know and thanks for bringing this terrific program to my attention."
The points are cool and I'm so competitive.....well, I love it! AND I love reading and writing and commenting here on Active Rain.
BUT there are some connections - like the ones above with Cindy and Tish - on which you can't put a "point value". These are the connections I will treasure forever.
FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS OF RAIN! I love the flood of connections! NOW THAT IS TRUE SUCCESS!
