Ok so I just read this post and it sucks! Sorry about that but it's all I got today. It sounded a lot better in my head. Anyway, here goes……
Well folks, today I'm breaking one of my ActiveRain rules……I'm joining a group!!! That's right, I have been a member of AR for about 18 months and I finally gave in to the pressure and decided to join a group.
The good thing is there are only two members in it. So I won't have too much competition. Sharon Simms was the first member and joined about 2 weeks ago and here I am member number two. "The Platinum Star Hall of Fame" was started by Neal Bloom and is for ActiveRain members who have reached the 300,000 points plateau. 300,000 points!!!! I really need to get a life.
So how the heck did I end up with 300,000 points? That's a good question. First let me outline what I don't do:
Don't belong to any groups. (Except this one)
Don't solicit for subscribers.
Don't send out emails asking for comments.
Don't ask for featured posts.
Don't respond to every comment on my posts.
Don't get involved in the behind the scenes politics.
Don't tell people how to blog.
Don't enter contests.
Don't post 10 times a week.
Not exactly what you would expect to hear from the #2 point person in the system but it's true. It's almost like I'm the anti-blogger.
Here's what I do do. That sounds kind of crappy doesn't it? Do do. Now I'm on TLW's turf 🙂
Do post consistently 3 to 4 times week.
Do write posts that will help my peers in their business while at the same time providing the consumer with useful information.
Do respect other members and their right to voice their opinions.
Do help anyone that emails me and ask for it.
Do write to the best of my ability and with honesty.
Do voice my opinion on matters whether folks agree with me or not.
Do try to share what I know in an entertaining way.
I guess I haven't really done anything special. I just keep doing my thing no matter what. I would like to take this time to thank everyone who reads and comments on my posts. Your participation really is appreciated.
By the way, the best part of ActiveRain? Is all you guys! I LOVE this place.
OK so I guess this is where I'm supposed to put my stats in here. Now folks please don't hate me when you see these. I swear it just happened. After you have read what I don't do and what I do, you have to agree that the only reason I have over 300,000 points is because…………….I'm sooooo good looking! Don't believe me? Ask Lenn.
