Woo - Hoo, I made page 3 !

GoalsI don't set a lot of "goals", I'm just not motivated that way (in general) BUT Active Rain has excited me in many goal setting ways over the 12 years I've been here.

Active Rain has encouraged me to be a consistent writer, something I had envisioned all the way back to my High School years.

Active Rain has encouraged me to strengthen my knowledge outside of my local market.

Active Rain has encouraged me to develop many skills related to marketing... especially on line marketing.

In the very beginning of my involvement with Active Rain, April 24 2008 at 8:51 PM, my goal was to be the number one blogger in the State of North Dakota. I will confess that being the number 1 blogger in the State of North Dakota is less of a challenge than many of you have just to be the number 1 blogger in your city BUT it seemed like an almost impossible task for me at the time.

The benefits of  12+ years of blogging have been huge in my personal life and darn good (rewarding) in my professional life.

Please don't take this as bragging, I just want to share my JOY of meeting another goal I never would have thought of as being obtainable a year or two ago. Today I made page 3 of the Active Rain Leader board! Thank you Active Rain for enhancing my life with this platform allowing me to express myself and THANK YOU fellow Active Rain participants for sharing so much wisdom, humor, and love with me and everyone else who consider Active Rain their social media home.

Congrats!.... And it is OK to toot your own horn! I checked the other day and am in the top ten of our county in Fl, but still a ways back in the state rankings!

I am happy that people read what I have to say. Even with my competitive spirit, I do not care where I rank on AR. In fact, I don't even know where you find such a thing as ranking by points, which I think is what you are showing us, right? But we all needs goals of some sort, and whatever works for you, works.

Once I decided I really wanted to move up that leader board I found it fun and exhilarating to "go for it" Sharon Tara . I probably check it daily now just to be sure I'm headed in the right direction. I see you are closing in on the goal of 2 million. That is very exciting!

Congrats on the milestone.  I too look to see to climb the ranks, but am nowhere near every account in the millions.  That is some serious dedication to the craft.

Thanks Kevin Mackessy but keep in mind it took 12 years so I obviously was not as dedicated as many others here in the Rain.

Thank you Lanre-"THE REAL ESTATE FARMER" Folayan . I signed up for AR and then immeadiately took a two year hiatus. Had I been on the ball I'd be on page 1. I'm going to be looking over my shoulder and watching for your fast approach to the top .
