Treading Water on ActiveRain is posting a post so I hang onto my RainMakerhood on ActiveRain.
Or maybe not... perhaps things have changed.
I believe my old content will still stay public even if I do not post a new post every 90 days or less on ActiveRain... or pay $50.00 (?) a month for a RainMaker account.
Has the 90 days changed?
Cha Cha Changes on ActiveRain 2013
After this weeks announcement that Trulia bought Market Leader which owns ActiveRain I read a few posts about whether things would change or stay the same on ActiveRain. I read some of the posts here on ActiveRain and I read conversations outside ActiveRain, a number from people who were some of the earliest members here.
Cha Cha Changes on ActiveRain 2010
In 2010 Jay Thompson wrote: Why I Deleted my ActiveRain Blog Posts on his Phoenix Real Estate Guy site. As I recall it there was a version on ActiveRain too. I do not see Jay's ActiveRain post anymore but his content from 2006 to 2011 is gone. Jay is with Zillow now... In 2010 ActiveRain changed the rules and members had to post every 90 days or lose their Rainmaker (public posts.) Even the founding members.
The 2010 ActiveRain Cha Cha Change was Grandfathered RainMaker Accounts: Rewarding Members Who Continue to Participate*
"Starting June 24th, grandfathered RainMakers who have not posted a public blog post in the previous 90 days will lose their grandfathered RainMaker status. You will be notified when your account has gone 60 days without a blog post. This will give you 30 days to generate one public blog post in order to keep your grandfathered RainMaker status."
In May 2010 Bob Stewart wrote 'Grandfathered RainMaker Accounts: Rewarding Members Who Continue to Participate'*

Brad Andersohn's announcement of 'ActiveRain's NEW RainMaker Membership Plan' posted 02/16/2009 05:26 AM
Brad's post spelled out changes...
"The ActiveRain New Membership Structure and Plan:
Members who have already setup accounts and have existing Blogs on ActiveRain will continue to benefit from their FREE access to the community and network. (nothing changes for current AR members with Blogs) "
The post and the AR Membership Plan changed again, Brad's 2009 post says... ACTIVERAIN - The NEW "RainMaker" Membership Plan
In the beginning 2006
ActiveRain started in 2006. Jay Thompson posted the first post on ActiveRain. Or the post that is said to be the first post. He deleted it with the rest of his ActiveRain blog but recreated it on ActiveRain in 2011
ActiveRain had free membership for all in the begining.
