Binge watching ? Why not Binge reviewing ?

Mortgage and Lending with American National Bank & Trust NMLS #268590

I know that with entertainment shows now being loaded in a computer format with whole seasons of shows loaded at one time, many people are now Binge watching their favorite shows.   Do you do that ?   I tend to watch my favorite shows when they are on and if I miss them, oh well.   I'll try to catch the next episode and figure it out.   I enjoy the entertainment anyway.

The other day, I was going through all the great blogs I follow here on ActiveRain and commented on one of the well respected contributers.   I got a response back from a Rainer who also commented that they weren't following me and didn't know me when responding to the point of the blog.   It was MY fault because I wasn't commenting theirs.   So we fixed that !

I went to their blog and did some "Binge reviewing".   I learned a lot about them, their blogging style and their personality.   I then commented on a number of their posts.   Well, today I opened up my site and my home page was covered with just one picture; theirs.   They had done the same thing.

They had "Binge reviewed" through my recent posts and then added comments to each one.   I think they now have a better idea of who I am and how I look at the profession and it's workings.   They had gone through and not only commented on a number of my posts, but also "liked" them.

It was especially gratifying because this person is a respected member of the ActiveRain community.   I feel honored to have them not only following me but to also have them comment on my posts and occasionally even "like" them.   I have sent them a personal message to thank them, of course !

So for you Rainers out there that have a little time on your hands, consider targeting another member of the community and open their profile and blog page.   You may learn some interesting and useful information by reviewing their site.   I know I did.   You may also find you have a new friend as I do.

Yes, the shows have moving pictures and sound so they may take you away from the stresses of life and work for a while but think about it, . . . . .

What a great idea!  I'll put that on the list to do when I have "a little time on my hands."  Right now it's spring, and there's not much time to be found, on my hands or elsewhere ..

That is a good idea. I tend to do 2 or 3 at a time and think that does keep me focused and in tune to what is going on. I think I know who you are talking about and he is a fine member.

This is a very good suggestion to share.

I sometimes miss learning about bloggers when they do not comment on my blogs.

One of my favorite ways to find "new" people on ActiveRain is in the comments. When I'm reading the post of one of the literally hundreds of people I do follow I sometimes come across a very well thought out comment that they have left and it makes me do just what you suggested.  I head over read their profile and several of their latest blog posts.  If I like what I read they usually end subscribing to them.

Follow the members who comment on my blogs. Many of them reciprocate with comments and have done that for years.
