Changes in Life & Active Rain

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Living | At Home DC / MD / VA

I've often been accused of being a loyalist.  Once I find a brand or a shop I like, I don't leave.  Still on marriage #1, after 20-odd years, and expect to be there another 20-30-40 years.

 

So, I don't go forward with change for the sake of change.BUT some change is good.

My time at Active Rain has included lots of lurking, though I'm writing and commenting more now.  If I wonder why, all I can think of is that it's gotten easier.

I love being able to get lots of info on the writer by their thumbnails.  I like that.

Being able to reference posters with the @ symbol .....pure joy.

The Like arrows.....that's just fun, and I'll gladly doing it without points.

 

Change for the sake of change is a waste of time & effort.  Change, or minor tweaks if you wish, to make a platform better, I'll take that every time.

Thank you AR.

I don't embrace change well either.  However, it took me more than one try to find my soulmate, but that's a story for another day.  

I like the most recent changes here too.  And even when I don't like one, if they can explain the why behind it I generally accept it and move on.

Hi Claude,  I am with Tammy, I don't particularly like chage, but it's something that is necessary in these modern times.

Claude, it is nice to see changes if they really benefit our community.    There are things we sacrifice for those changes.

Good morning Claude. I actually embrace change, but it wasn't always that way. If you would have told me five years ago that I would be blogging, I would have told you, you're crazy.

Hi Claude,

I think that Active Rain is a tool that everyone uses in their own way.  I don't mind the changes to the Rain, it takes some getting used to but it's OK.

I believe that most of us are creatures of habits. If we are comfortable with someone or something, there is no reason to toss that away.
