Following Members of ActiveRain


I have made it a habit to follow several new ActiveRain members each day for several years. It is an easy way to pay it forward and every now and then one of the members will follow my blog. You will earn a few points for following five members each day. Think of this practice like an ActiveRain monthly contest that will award 1,500 points if you follow five additional members each day.

I now follow over 20,000 members of ActiveRain. Yes, many of them are no longer active and some of them have died.

Good for you Roy at commenting and joing new members each day on A/R. You are probably following more than anyone else on this platform!

Hello Roy - I was aware of your "following" protocol but I don't recall ever hearing it described as a personal contest where points could be accumulated. 

20,000 is a significant number and I imagine it's one that is far out-distances other members.

 Good morning, Roy Kelley This is my 11th year on ActiveRain and I follow 658 members... when I read a post and feel that person's blog is worth continuing to read, I follow them....  that's my reason for following someone...  

I have 2,542 members who follow me.... and hopefully, it's for the same reason for following....

Hmm, I have tried over the years to follow and support new members from time to time, but I have never made it a routine since rarely do they interact.

That is a lot of people to follow. I follow a good number and always regret missing some of their posts. So always enjoy the posts by Carol and Kathy at the weekend as I find things I missed well worth reading.

Roy, guess I don't see that many new members anymore, or don't take the time to look.

Following is good practice, Roy!  Most of my ActiveRain activity involves reading and commenting on the posts in the groups I founded.

Hi Roy- you have always been a huge supporter of all of the members here at ActiveRain. I try to follow many and not sure how many follow me.
