January is a milestone on Active Rain for me. It marks two years of active Blogging which I joined active rain on 01/06/2007. As January starts to come towards a close this year I can take a look at several radio, television, and newspaper interviews that were a direct result of my Blogging Active Rain. I sold my own home as a result of a Blog on Active Rain in 4 days, I received a few referrals, and gave out many referrals to other Active Rainers. I am very satisfied with the results of my efforts. If times were better, I know the return would be much greater.
January also allowed me to surpass 400K in AR points, a technical milestone for 2 years on AR. I find the most important thing on Active Rain is reading, and gaining more knowledge. That is my idea of social networking. It is visibility, and recognition of others and their abilities. I have made many new friends since I have joined Active Rain, and my life is much richer for the knowledge they freely share.
Thank you Active Rain!
