Which ActiveRain Yearbook Page are You On?

Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

Another year closes, another one begins...
Which year did you join ActiveRain in?

I just re-stumbled upon the roster pages for ActiveRain wondering which new blogging superstars will show up in our new year. Time will tell! However the past years read like a school yearbook. The ones that stuck to it, applied what they learned from the community, and blogged away have created names for themselves. Let's take a look:

Class of 2006

Class of 2007

Class of 2008

Class of 2009

Class of 2010

Class of 2011

Class of 2012

I know you are like me and see so many familiar faces here. Maybe it is just me, but who are these people in 2012?? I know 35 out of the 36 people in the prior years but ZERO for 2012. hmmm. That's odd. I guess we just haven't crossed paths YET.

Each of the images above is clickable to take you to the page for that year. Can you find yourself? Let's all make 2013 a blogging year to remember! :)

Debi - I hope you clicked the ONE link that took you direct to the last page!! Glad you found your blogging start date

Michelle - I like your thinking, thanks for visiting

Kathy - I hope so! :)

Jane - glad to help you down memory lane :)

Thom - I just hope that many points that fast also equates to quality of blogging! If not, I'd take less points any day for the quality!

Anna - yes thankfully, where would we be without the Bananatudes!

Travis - sometimes it takes a while to click

Jill - it is amazing that as big as it becomes we keep growing our spheres of colleagues!

Patricia - I like that plan! :)

Tyler - later in the year means lower on the list but give it just another few months and check back to the list I'm sure you'll be up there soon

Craig: What a fun list to be part of.  I joined in May 2010 and started blogging regularily in July of that year.  I recognized all but 3 (all in 2012) so am going to check them out now.

Craig, I am in the class of 2009. Although I ranked higher before (9th in my class now) last year was a tough year for blogging. I am, I hope, back in the saddle again!

Very fun post!

Craig, I'd consider myself in Class 2010! Though official join date was in 2008, never took ActiveRain seriously until August 2010.

(And I would have loved to see some more familiar faces in previous years - not limiting to 6 only).

So cool to be a part of this "yearbook" Craig.  Although I know none of the 2012 members, I subscribe to all shown here in the class of 2011 and 2010 and 11 from the other years.

Hi Craig - I had the same reaction to the 2012 class that you did - I don't "know" but a couple of them. They need to stir things up a bit more.

There I am in 2011 with some very good company!  Interesting to note the different gender makeups in the various years.  I was familiar with everybody up to 2012 and then I was only familiar with Mark.  You deserved this feature.

Craig, this is like a veritable who's who of ActiveRain. I subscribe to many of these members. I joined in 2009. Who knew I'd still be here after so many years?

Very interesting Craig, lots of familiar faces even a few from 2012, I am not sure if I fit into the class of 2009 when I joined or the class of 2012 when I finally did something and earned 270k pts.

I am going to have to check when I first joined active rain.  I'm going to have to check the rosters.  I had no idea one could get this type of information.
