I noticed that the member count here at Active Rain is over 118,000. That is very impressive. I have been here reading since the beginning. I think there were only 300 or so members when I joined this great group of people. I have spent many hours reading, writing comments and sometimes even a blog or two. I don't write for points alone, however it is great having a point system. My question is, "where did everyone go"?
I wonder just how many Active rain members fell by the wayside, either because they were too busy to participate or are no longer in the Real Estate Business. How many Active rain Members are actually participating members. I am sure some people made accounts and never came back. Others hung their licences in escrow because of the poor business climate.
I guess the reason for my post is to find out how we can tell if a member is current, or gone. Is there any way to tell? Do the active rain Gods just care about the numbers or are they concerned about their true members? Is there a way of tracking each persons accounts for activity. I know that some people who's blogs I subscribed to no longer write. Does that mean they no longer read? Or sign in at all?
They say that "curiosity killed the cat". Maybe I should sit down, shut up and leave the writing to some of the talented people here.
