On Jan 1 of this year I started my 8th year on Active Rain. It is hard to believe I have been part of this community a little over 7 years, I started commenting and posting a few months before Jan 1 2009 but signed up on Jan 1 2009. It has opened up a whole new world for me. I never knew what blogging was and didn't think it was something I would want to do but boy was I wrong.
I have virtually met so many wonderful folks and have even traveled to visit with some of them in person. What an incredible experience that it has been. As time goes on I plan on meeting many more. This has been a incredible to learn, to grow and get to know so many special and talented folks with such passion for what they do and the integrity that is needed in this world.
Now many people have reached incredible blogging points milestones that I may reach one day but I am in a race with no one but myself. I feel honored and blessed to have some of the highest caliber people as followers of my blog but also ones I call friend and that is PRICELESS. Worth much more than points ever could.
Now while it isn't Jan 1 2016 it is still pretty close to the beginning of my 8th year and with this blog I cross the 800.000 mark which while not the million point club is still a decent number and fitting of close to beginning my 8th yr and I am good with that.
