Second Chance Saturday: Week 143

Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Double Feature:
How To Rank Your ActiveRain Blog Posts 
By: Dario Ferreira 
"Although much has been said about Active Rain's ranking power lately, ranking a blog post on Active Rain can still be done if you follow some basic steps."  


Outside Feature:     
Cops in Leavenworth, Washington.  Leavenworth is an insanely popular tourist town about 20 miles west of where I live in Wenatchee. It is particularly popular during the holiday season and has been named the #1 Christmas Town in America at least once. It's mostly a peaceful little place but when the cops get called... watch out!  Enjoy!

Thank you so very much Carol Williams for including my post about Girls On The Run! I know my dear friend Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland alerted you to it  

GOTR is such a wonderful program, it deserves a big shout-out. My daughter can't wait to do it again in the Spring. And I'll be right there cheering her on again.
