Wordless Wednesday…16 Years of a Good Habit

Wordless Wednesday…16 Years of a Good Habit


You know how it is…when something becomes a habit…you forget you’re doing it. It becomes as natural as any of our daily routines. 

That was the case yesterday…my 16th anniversary of joining ActiveRain. 

I didn’t realize it until something popped up on my phone. 



I won’t bore you by saying what you already know…

~That I learned how to blog for my business through the Webinars that Bob Stewart  held

~That calls for my services came from those blogs

~That what I continue to love about this platform is the community and the support it gives to all members

~That not a single day goes by that I don’t learn something new from the posts and comments here. 

Thank you ActiveRain and every member for turning this into a good daily habit.

Hi Kathy:

Congratulations on your milestone and Happy Anniversary. It's fun to see so many faces I know in those photos.

Kathy the "good Habit" is obviously referring to you and not to a couple of members in those pictures.  😆😂😆😂

I believe I started blogging on ActiveRain in March of 2008.  So, I'm right behind you, Kathy.

Myrl Jeffcoat remember watching the number of members they used to post at the top of the website. It was fun watching it grow.

16 years is a long time to do anything consistently these days since people move on from things fairly quickly, haha.  Congrats on staying so consistent in the Rain!
