Inside the Top 20 for Active Rain Newbies! I absolutely have to take the opportunity to reblog a post I found yesterday by fellow AR member Richard Yates of Orange County, California.
In this particular post Richard had shared with us The Leading Newbies of 2011 as of 7/15/2011 here on Active Rain. Naturally, having joined this year, I clicked to see who was at the top of the list. I recognized many of the 18 faces that were there as we all tend to encourage and keep in touch with the fellow Newbies (as we're called) in the AR family. What a great recognition Richard had made for these people who have gotten off to a great start this year in building a strong foundation for themselves.
Then I scrolled down just a bit farther and what the heck do ya know....I was #19! I hadn't made the blog cut but boy I was in the Top 20 and that was good enough for me!
Thank you, Richard, for bringing this to my attention as I had no idea there was a way to track or follow such a thing. Justification is not something I live my life on a daily basis needing but it is nice to see that hard work pays off from time to time!
Hope everyone out there is having a fabulous day!
