Who Hated Homework in School?

Was I a nerd?Were you one of those folks who hated homework in school? Not me! I was kind of an @$$ kisser when I was in school. All the teachers loved me (man did I have them fooled!) and I loved homework. Most of the time, I would have the homework done before the teacher even let out class. How? Easy, for the last ten minutes the other kids would sit around and goof off and I'd finish my homework. Throughout the day, there was almost always enough free time in my classes to get all my homework done during class.

I'm not in the education field so I don't know the stats (plus, the majority of stats are made up anyway) but I'd venture a guess that the kids who always do/did their homework end(ed) up getting better scores on their tests and better grades in general.

So we're going to start handing out homework........or maybe that's not the right word. Each week, a few times a week we are going to suggest topics for our members to write about. You aren't going to get any extra points, like we've done for challenges in the past, but you are going to get a little better shot at getting your posts featured.

You will also get some good traffic to your blogs. We are going to use all the analytics at our disposal to suggest topics that will help generate traffic to your blog. You can choose to write about them or not. Sometimes the suggested topics will focus on consumer oriented posts and sometimes the topics will be aimed at helping your peers.

On the menu bar at the top of the page, right next to where you can keep track of 'contests' will be a little link that says '_________'. Actually, we don't know what it's going to say. That's where you come in.

Leave some suggestions here in the comments of what we can call these 'assignments'. That was the first thing that popped into our heads 'ActiveRain Assignments'.......but that stinks. Someone out there with more creativity than us has to have a better name. We just introduced 'The Chatter' where you can leave your thoughts about important questions for the real estate industry. Now we'll have a place where you can choose to take on assignments to write content that will help drive more engagement for your blog.

We just need to know what to call it.........2500 points if we use your suggestion and your word(s) will be in lights a link at the top of 99% of the pages on the site.

~Bob (so you can figure out which of us was the @$$ kissing homework lover)

Bob, Good Stuff would be my suggestion.  I continue to post positive thoughts on my blogs and having a tab with more "good stuff" sounds like a good plan to me!  Thank you for having the idea:)

Radiant Rain, Laser Rain, it's similar to getting an A or extra credit.  Those who are interested or disciplined to do the assignements will reap the benefits.
