Why Do I Participate in Contests and Meet-Ups
I have been an active member of Activerain for over 3.5 years and have learned so much to enhance my career, meet many great friends across US and Canada and also a way to show off the photographs of nature I take.
Contests- In Novemember, there was 3 contests and I had a lot of fun writing them plus another great benefit is that I got 4,000 points for my posts plus I had already gotten the 225 per post as I published them. How easy was that?
Here are the 2 current contests for December. If you have not participated in the past contests, I highly suggest you start now. Frankly, I love the contests and cannot wait on the 1st of each month to see what new contests we have. The experience of writing your entry, reading other member's entries, seeing who won 1st, 2nd, 3rd and sometimes honorable mentioning is a great learning experience and......getting the extra points is just 'icing on the cake'.
Go to Resources at top and then click on Contests or just click below to read the current contests:
Meet-Ups: I cannot say enough about attending meet-ups. It is great to know other bloggers and comment on their posts and have them comment on yours but to meet in person is a wonderful experience. I my area, one of my colleuges, Christina Hood and I have had three seperate meet-ups and typically get repeat participants and new ones too. How exciting is it to sit and visit and learn about others and get a chance to do referral business with AR members in the future. I am looking forward to the upcoming meet-ups in January 2015. If you host a meet-up, you get 2,500 points and for just showing up, you get 1000 points.
So if you have not participated, start now and see how much fun and knowledge you will get out of it.
