Active Rain -- newbie tips #1 -- joining groups.

When someone is new to Active Rain, they may be looking for a starting point. Here are some quick suggestions

  • Log in every day (100 points). Blog daily (200 points each) Comment (25 points each).  Ten comments per day. Re blog (25 points). Invite others and get points from their activity. Points are given for updating your profile.
  • Like the name Active Rain says -- get Active. To learn more, read the manual.
  • Look in groups. Find some groups that interest you and join. Read, comment and post to those groups. Subscribe to blogs that you enjoy reading.
  • Not sure how to do something? Go to the "search" link at the top, type in a question or phrase and you will find a blog about it. Also look at the FAQ link at the bottom of the page. As you progress, it will get easier.

I have put together a short video on joining groups.

Good re-blog. It's great to help the newbies but also serves as a great reminder to those who have been here awhile to check out some of the other great groups on here!

Dear Mary -

Thanks for coming by!  Yes - all of us were newbies once, eh?
The funny thing about ActiveRain is that even the "old-timers" are only at five years!

Have happy day -
Lynn

Dear Gina -

Glad to see you here!  Yes - new groups are always popping up! Check out the groups for both iPad Users and Android Tablet Users!  There is a group for meet-ups at home or when traveling called AR-ups.  I've used AR-ups and met folks in Washington, DC and Chicago! One vacationing AR member used it in Hawaii in Maui.

Have happy day -
Lynn

Dear Craig,

You are most welcome!  When I finish the series, I plan on adding links to all the articles you wrote on each reblog so they may catch more "students" for your advice!

Have a happy day -
