  • Learning
  • Sharing
  • Growing
  • Laughter
  • Support
  • Friendship
  • Growing Business
  • Referrals
  • Meet-Ups
  • Humor
  • Crying - loss of loved ones and pets
  • Teaching
  • Instructional Learning 
  • Resources
  • SEO
  • How To Do Something
  • What Not To 
  • Telephone Calls - some really long discussions 
  • Surprises
  • Video Editing 
  • Cool Software
  • Opinions 
  • Contests / Challenges
  • Judges
  • Importance of Spell Checking
  • Social Media 
  • Feature Fairies - love me some fairy dust 
  • Every. Single. Comment. 
  • Re-Blogs 
  • Q&A
  • Points - self confessed point junkie
  • ActiveRain Staff and Technology Team
  • Bob Stewart 
  • Ben Kinney 


bountiful thanksgiving 

A very special shout-out and thank you to my very special WordPress mentor who taught me more than anyone I have every hired to TEACH me. You know who you are and how grateful I am for your willingness to help me. You were there for me night and day as I worked to clean up and fix my sites. I remain forever grateful. 


To all the members I have spoken to ... there are many ... thank you. 

To all the members who reached out to me to "pick my brain" - thank you. 

To all the members who called just to say "Hello" - thank you.

To all the members who have grown a true friendship with me - thank you.


To all the members who allow me to be playful and banter with you ... thank you. 


To the member who called me pretending to be the FBI making an inquiry regarding why my email was found in Anthony Weiner's database .... you know who you are and how much you make me laugh ... thank you. 


To the entire community for the countless ways each of you have enriched my life and business - thank you. 


To Debbie Reynolds for creating the 10 day Thanksgiving post challenge - thank you. 


May the entire ActiveRain community enjoy a peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving and holiday weekend.

You are always so upbeat, Kathleen, and positive. It's easy to see why you have made so many friends here in the Rain. So who was it who pretended to be the FBI and grill you about Anthony Weiner? Ha, ha, ha, I bet that was hilarious!!!

First, let me thank you for reminding us of so many things to be thankful for. Second, giving thanks is a decision one has to make, too many in today's society do not appreciate what we have in this great country we call America!

I'm so glad I've gotten to know you. I have to meet the member that called you pretending to be a member of the FBI. Now that person has my sense of humor.
