Which ActiveRain Yearbook Page Are You On? 2014 Edition

Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

From the home page of ActiveRain, there is a link that you can click "Membership Roster" that is a neat tangent to explore when you are surfing the site. As you click on each of the years of ActiveRain's existence, you realize it looks a lot like a school yearbook.

Which class are you in? Are you in the "freshman" class or the "senior"? Have you really applied yourself to blogging? If so, those points are tallying up for you and provide you an extra boost of incentive. Maybe you have a little friendly competition with your peers to climb a rung higher on the AR ladder.

My first AR blog was August 15, 2010 and I just completed my 4th year... do I get to graduate now? :) I've been very busy with my "day job" lately so you won't see me as often as those in the "top of my class" but I hope you enjoy it when Craig's fingers get busy writing a new post.

Anyway, I thought you'd enjoy my 2014 edition (it has been a couple of years since I last did a post like this) of the top 12 in each class. Which class are you in?

You can click any of the images below to jump to the page for that year to find yourself.

So many of the original early adopters are long gone. It's nice to see though, that there are still quite a few using the platform to it's fullest advantage.

Hi Craig.  Thanks for the post! I look at this roster every now and then, and it does make me push myself a little more.  When I first became a Realtor, I blogged so much my husband had to practically pry my fingers off the keyboard (which, of course, became a blog post), but now I do find that the actual business of Real Estate keeps me so busy I just don't do the posts as often.  But - I can "feel a change coming on!"

Spotted AR in late 2006, joined and started blogging first of 2007...in January. Boy, lots of changes from the small ranks to large waves and the programming fare. Nothing stays static, the same.

So cool! I'm in the class of 2012. I often forget that because I didn't do anything with my account until 2013. But glad I made the decision to!

Craig,  How cool is that. Wow, I've been blogging in the Rain for over 7 years. Maybe that is what's up with me. Perhaps I am experiencing a 7-year itch or something like that.

Thanks for pointing it out!
