I belong to quite a few groups but tend to post to the same ones over and over so I should probably cut back on some of my groups.

I've joined some groups but I rarely go to the group to see the posts there. Guess I don't really understand the purpose ... maybe you can clarify for me?

It sort of depends on what I'm posting. Bananatude is one of my favorites and so it Bartender, Make It a Double.  But if it's a local post or a photo blog, it's different.

I never visit groups. I do have a few regulars I post to, but I don't think I get increased traffic to my posts because of posting to a group. I think Bob Stewart and the AR staff needs to take a look at this part of The Rain.

Mary - I am not exactly sure that too many members post to groups, or visit them specifically to find interesting posts. I just think growing groups into the thousands, like Active Rain did, just became overwhelming to most.

The Groups section could certainly be re-vamped.

As far as how many groups I post to regularly, I would say not many, sometimes none.
