Half a Million

half a million

I started on ActiveRain on October 21, 2009.  I didn't know what I was doing at all.  It wasn't until November 20, 2009 when I wrote my first post (poorly written, I might add.)   It took me until November 30th to comment on a post, but only one that day.  Then I wrote my third post on December 21, 2009.  This one wasn't much better than the first one I wrote.  I tried my pen again on December 21st and was thrilled to receive 305 points!  WooHoo!  This got me excited.  I knew my post was at least good enough for people to make comments.

My written posts came few and far between, but I continued to comment on others posts.  I was getting the hang of it, sort of.  I started my Mind Bender series in February of 2010.  I enjoyed building some relationships through humor.  I also attended Rain Camp this month.  The information I received was more than I ever could have expected.

In March of 2010, my post Jack of All Trades, Master of None actually made it on the Daily Drop!  I was hooked.  The thrill of having this kind of recognition felt wonderful.  You see, I am not the best of writers and it has always been a challenge for me to put my thoughts down on paper.  I reached 100,000 points in mid June of 2010. 

I took on some contests and tried to write with more frequency.  And that frequency has paid off!  I am addicted to this Rain play.  I have built relationships with many people from across the United States.  Without AR, I never would have even met them.  I have expanded my knowledge.  I have become a better writer (at least I think I have.)  And, yes, I have even gotten a few referrals!  I have even written a few features that I am proud of.

As of this moment, I have 499, 677 points.  Once I post this, and get a few comments, I will reach a half a million points!  If you would have asked me just over 2 years ago, if I could predict how many points I would have at this time, I never would have said a half a million!  But here I am!!!
