June's ActiveRain Contests Are Here!



     Last month I was largely MIA in the rain & missed out on some great contests, including a cloudburst that I was sure I'd get done!  Thankfully, June brings us another cloudburst amongst some other really cool contests.


June's Cloudburst


     Think you can write 20 blogs, leave 125 comments, make a few phone AR Contestscalls, and teach us a few things about your area and technology all by June 30?  I think you can, and if I'm right, the AR point patrol will reward you with 3000 big ones to be used at the ActiveRain points store, whenever it opens.

Check out the details on June's Cloudburst here



Summertime Special Contest


     Debbie Laity invites us to exchange some info on our homes in exchange for some AR points and quality SEO.  Similar to the 'show off your home' contest around the holidays, this contest asks us to use some pictures and tell the world about the place you call home - whether that's through your actual home, your community, or the surrounding areas.  Everyone should love where they live - tell us why you do!

Here's the contest page, stop by and tell Debbie how awesome of an idea this one is!



"5 Reasons" June Contest


     Speaking of loving where you live, Ron Marshall wrote a post back in the winter time sharing why he loves where he lives.  He had such great feedback that he decided to invite us all to write a similar post.  So put together a post with 5 things that make you love where you live - include some links, pictures, and helpful info for anyone that stumbles upon your post.  What's your reward?  Well, SEO for one.  If you need more, 1000 ActiveRain points are also up for grabs if you follow the rules


Check out the post for the specific rules & details on Ron's contest



     One of my favorite things about ActiveRain is learning about the different communities around the country (and also about our friends up in Canada, eh?), so it's great to see 2 contests that allow us to put the spotlight on our homes & communities this June.



     If you don't normally participate in AR contests, why not give it a shot this month?  They're a great way to move up the points leaderboard (or stay atop it for all you millionaires out there), learn about other AR members, and have some fun.  Even better, the contests (especially cloudbursts) are a great way to stay consistent with blogging, and get into a habit tha will surely lead to more business.



     Wondering where you can find these contests on your own aside from when they're featured on the home page?  Go to Resources-->Groups-->ActiveRain Contests.  They're updated each month, usually on the 1st or 2nd of the month - and be sure to check early, or else miss out when the 30-in-30 contests pop up!

I'll be lucky to get the cloudburst done this month.  Little more hectic than usual going into the hazy, hot and humid months.

John, Most months it seems the cloudbursts have ONE thing that I just don't want to do, so I may pass on the points.  I think this month might not have had one of those conditions, not that we need another point or 1000 in our account.

We have put our home on the market - and June has been crazy. . . not to mention my son is getting married in August and we are moving our Mother (who has lived with us for 10 years and is 90) into an Assisted Living Home in July.  I won't be able to participate, but I wish I could!  My heart is there.  :)
