300,000 points in the rain and this is what I think about that!
The points system seems to come under fire quite a bit here and there but personally I like it! It give me a reference point, a place to measure my participation here in the rain. I just passed the 300,000 mark and it has been an amazing ride along the way....
I have met SO many great people all over the country that I otherwise would have never know! Being from the Ft Bragg area I hear people talk about and come from all different cities across America. After all this time in the rain, most of the time when they mention an area a face comes to mind, someone that I know from this community that works in that area. I giggle to myself every time that happens! Inside my own state I know tons of people across the Carolina’s that I can reach out to at anytime...I have met many in person because of ActiveRain meetups! Like Tish Loyd and her cheeky assistant, Frank and Karen Baker, Amy Han, Joni Staples (All the way from Texas!!), Debe Maxwell, Sherry Scales, Loreen Yo, Cindy “In Indy”, Vickie Slade, Tammy Lankford, Eric Michael, Michelle Gibson, Renne Burrows, Praful Thakker, Sharron Paxson, Nevin Williams, Craig Rutman, and Cindy Jones.... I know there are more that I can think of right now and SO many more I plan to meet in the future!!
I decided to list my “mets” because there are SO many more that I call “friend”!
I recently did a blogging class and I try to stress to the class how much this community has to offer... The knowledge you can find here is priceless not to mention the business that it will bring and has brought me over the last couple of years!
I received an email this week from a new client that found me by reading my blog...I actually received the email through the ActiveRain system. Here is the part that I loved reading: We didn't really know where to begin and we came across your site which had a lot of great info. I am trying to nail down the process of home buying but have questions.
He has been pre qualified now and will be arriving next month! I have had many say the same thing weather they call me or email me I can link back significant number of clients to my ActiveRain blog!! I tell ya it DOES work!!
So anyway here is to another 300,000!! Wonder where that is going to take me??
