posting: KERRIE SAYS RELAX 10 IS THE NEW 20 NOW - 10/23/14 07:27 AM
Many are relieved for the news of blogs going BACK DOWN to 10 per week (points wise) from the 20 per week that was allowed. For a while there, it was interesting to see people who live for points and rankings (for whatever reasons) turn it up and toss them out. Quantity versus quality had prevailed
WHAT BECAME OF IT?
Many refused citing personal and professional reasons for not wanting or being able to rise to this carpel tunnel making challenge (lol) and just did not participate with all their ACTIVERAIN-HEARTS activated. I am reminded that the little things that people like or need … (15 comments)

posting: THIRD ANNUAL EVERYTHING IS THE OPPOSITE POST - 10/22/14 04:35 PM
That's right! After this paragraph, everything in this post will mean the opposite. Your comments must mean the opposite as well. Do not forget this while reading as some words may sting you but not if you remember its the opposite of the word used and not the words. This is all the warning you get...
HERE WE GO
1. Guys...I sure wish you didn't drop in just now. Let's not do this again
2. This post is too hard to participate in
3. I don't blog for points nor do I like being in the Rain either
4. Google juice will drown you … (16 comments)

posting: YOU HAVE ACTIVATED SELF-DESTRUCT - 10/21/14 07:21 AM
I just lost a post. This is not a complaint nor am I upset because I am taking the obvious LEMON episode and turning into lemonade right now instead of drinking it your reading it. What Happened? Only my fingers know for sure and they are not talking. I was putting together a post, typing and making tracks....
POOF...BYE BYE
When all of a sudden, my "flash" fingers hit or did something that my mind doesn't know about and not only did the post go, but the whole log-in went bye-bye with it. It moved slow enough when leaving to almost smirk at me as … (9 comments)

posting: HAVE YOU NOTICED THIS IN THE RAIN? - 10/17/14 01:50 PM
No one is going at it with anyone else. No feuds? No tete to tete? No comment to post combat? I know we don't all agree, but have we reached the point where we can share and not take prisoners during the exchange? I haven't seen or heard of anyone declaring war on another here in ActiveRain-land
IS IT ME?
Am I in a rose garden? Do I have on colored shades? How about I am not frequenting the more colorful neighborhoods here in ActiveRain-land or have I lost touch? I can take it! Please tell me that Rainers have learned... HOW... instead … (73 comments)

posting: BUSINESS CARD SAYS GOOGLE ME? - 10/10/14 10:48 AM
For people who have a web site and who blog, comment and post all over the Internet, chances their name is going to come up if someone does a name search. It is interesting to consider how the Internet is really a type of resume if you will. In addition, an article or posting on a subject matter may turn up too
UNLIMITED EXPOSURE
Being outspoken in person has its limitations and nuances but practicing that in cyberspace, one can do it until they don't want too. In other words, there is no limit to exposing yourself on the Internet in … (8 comments)

posting: ACTIVERAIN'S SCRATCH THE ITCH CONTEST WINNERS - 09/30/14 11:26 AM
The real joy of hosting a contest here in the RAIN is the coming together and the support and sharing that takes place when we do. Throw in some guidelines, some tasty POINTS and or prizes and ACTIVERAIN can turn to ACTIVE-FAME AND ACTIVE-GAIN for anyone. ActiveRainers are a good group of folks and the latest contest proof we have is ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF THE SCRATCH THE ITCH WITH RICH contest
To everyone who entered...YOU WON! Take a moment and enjoy the satisfaction of participating in something worthy. May your tag be your bag...that leads to riches and well-being. Among those that … (53 comments)

posting: I SEE HIS SMOKE AND HE IS FLOORING IT - 09/21/14 09:53 AM
Its Tom Arstingstall General contractor who specializes in Dry Rot and Water Damage "plus" and Rainmaker who is coming up fast behind me. I don't know what he has under the hood of his "smokin bloggin wagon", but whatever it is is pulling serious horsepower. I have to sleep, eat, run my business, perform miscellaneous chores leaving some opportunities to be passed. Tom's blogging GPS must be state of the art
LOTS OF ROOM OUT THERE
When we all get out on the cyberspace freeway, then, its all good. But that "on ramp" is most competitive. In ActiveRain California, the top ten Rainers … (10 comments)

posting: IS THERE AN ITCH OUTBREAK OVER THERE? - 09/16/14 01:50 PM
People on Twitter and Facebook want to know what is going on over at Trulia and ActiveRain. Is there an "ITCH" epidemic breaking out? Zillow wants to know right now before they write the 3.5 billion dollar check too. LOL...No, we are all getting ready to maximize our Internet presence starting now for later and beyond by copying the past successes of having a tag-line
SCRATCH IT ITCH WITH RICH CONTEST
THIRTY DAYS HALF GONE?
Where does time go? In cyberspace, no worries! But down here on the earthly plains, the clock is ticking and has ticked for those that are contemplating getting their tag-line game … (2 comments)

posting: THE GREAT POST DEBATE - 09/14/14 11:38 AM
Be mindful of this dynamic. If done properly, it is a learning experience for all involved and the public, once clicked on the post or blog is treated to a lively discussion that dissects the issue every which way so that it can be absorbed and appreciated for what it is. Very rewarding when done properly. Beware of the "dark" dynamic where two people go at it personally, emotionally and off subject
YOUR A GUEST
I seen a decent post the other day explaining the inside thinking of an industry and someone responding to the negative or attacking the post point. Yes to it … (4 comments)

posting: THE POWER OF TRANSPARENCY - 09/11/14 12:57 PM
Make no mistake about it. When you are readable, transparent and consistent about it, it leaves everyone better than when you found them for being refreshing and non-threatening. For the practitioner, it promotes a confidence and a feeling of light heart-ed-ness because no additional weight or baggage is at work. What you see is what it is
ON RECORD
When we blog, post and comment, we have taken the risk of identifying, stating, sharing and claiming what we understand to be true and where we stand on our understanding. We went first and we are glad to do so. We weren't put here or sent to … (6 comments)

posting: LEARN FROM ME ON THIS - 08/30/14 12:05 PM
I just wanted to share that when I went to post, I completely over-looked the TAG section and launched several posts without tags. There is no warning that you have done this and it is easy to miss as you go through your check list on the way to launch
It is listed under options so it is not mandatory to include in your posting. However, we are missing out from being found or coming up if we tagged as opposed to if we didn't. I want to be found and skipping this section will injure that
I had to go … (13 comments)

posting: DOES TOM ARSTINGSTALL EVER SLEEP? - 08/26/14 06:15 PM
Here I am in my bloggin wagon smoking up the ActiveRain-land freeways and I look in my rear-view and there's Tom! Again? How does he get all those points? How does he move up in ranking that fast? Who does Tom know? mmmm. Perhaps he is just at the top of his posting, commenting and blogging game and when I nap, he floors his point machine?
WHAT'S UNDER THE HOOD?
My blogging wagon can move when I put the post metal to the pedal. It has won many a "feature" race and elicited my share of responses. But Tom has a good formula … (11 comments)

posting: RICHIE'S GENERAL STORE & POST - 08/23/14 12:29 PM

posting: DO YOU SPEAK POST? - 08/23/14 09:09 AM
Yes fluently thank you. What is post speaking or speaking post? It is the art of making a subject or yourself known in so many quick and to the point words and paragraphs. It is the complete opposite of a LONG story. It is closely related to the dynamic of writing an essay which many people in college had trouble with.
HEY LOOKY HERE?
Getting ones attention to a post is done through the title! It can be informative, tricky, interesting or something in the news already. From there, usually below you title is a snippet of the fist two sentences or paragraph allowing a reader … (0 comments)

posting: JON ZOLSKY & JON KOLSKY GOT ME GOOD - 08/18/14 04:31 PM
These are two ACTIVERAIN people aka rainers who I have conversed with, like and enjoy and both express some good opinion and write decent posts and comments. I got a call one day from whom I thought was Jon Zolsky but was really Jon Kolsky or to be quite frank could have been the other way around. This sutff can play with your head
WHICH ONE?
I am going to play back with it. So, I visit with one of them via a post and comment forum and who I thought was the one I talked with never mentioned our most recent … (10 comments)

posting: MY POINT WAGON PULLED OVER - 08/17/14 09:27 AM
That's when it happened. I just pulled over to gaze or smell the roses and low and behold, Rainers on the point highway are coming up fast. They don't sleep normal hours, they eat while blogging, posting and commenting and at the end of the day...they rank and rule. Ahh, but you see I have rested up.
PATCHING OUT.....
I now have checked my rear view mirror, fastened my seat belt, turn signal on and I am flooring it onto the ACTIVERAIN POINT AUTOBAHN. While on the way, I get calls, clicks, views and make myself known in the world called cyberspace
THE LANDS OF THE … (7 comments)

posting: LETS PLAY ACTIVERAIN JEOPARDY WHERE THE QUESTION IS THE ANSWER - 08/15/14 11:23 AM
It is a brilliant game idea that involves your thinking in another way to participate in a question and answer forum. The premise is that they give you an answer and YOU must provide the question for the answer. If you do, you get points and money, fame and power follow. During this journey, it also becomes much fun too.
Here are some ACTIVERAIN jeopardy Q & A..for your amusement:
Answer: Has well over two million points on ACTIVERAIN and counting
Question: Who is Lenn Harley or Patricia Kennedy...either answer scores
Answer: Fined billions of dollars for financial fraud & misbehaving and still … (8 comments)

posting: BLOGGING IS AN ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARD - 08/14/14 07:47 AM
In order to do business, one must be in business. Posting and blogging says you are. So tell me, what is the difference between passing out your hard copy business cards at a mixer, gathering, business meeting, social or promotion and blogging, posting and commenting online and in cyberspace? Letting the public at large know YOU are here is the focus. We are just shifting or broadening how we do it
HI THERE!
I go to events and outings to promote myself and if you don't go, how will anyone know you are out there let alone what you can do and why … (6 comments)

posting: WHATS BLACK AND WHITE AND "RED" ALL OVER? - 08/13/14 08:30 AM
That one has been around for a long while. For those that have not heard it before, the answer was a NEWSPAPER. Notice how I said was. There is a new answer to that question. A POST! You are looking at one now. It is an electronic greeting or type of business card but it is definitely here to stay because it is the way ideas, points, products and services are introduced in cyberspace
DO YOU SPEAK E-TALK?
Posting is a type of e-talk. That's all. It is no different than taking what you would say to a neighbor, friend, family member, a client or … (5 comments)

posting: COMMENTS ON A POST OR BLOG - 08/11/14 01:18 PM
I welcome them and invite people to visit and chew the post with me and some don't and some do and all is well. Many times someone has commented using a point of view that I have not considered thereby causing me growth. I remain grateful for those lessons. Other times when people comment, they raise issues which allow me to further comment and in some cases, even make myself more clear
LIPS MOVE ON YOUR PICTURE?
Now a days, when someone visits with me and shares, I often look at their comment and then their picture and have no trouble relating the two. I wont go … (12 comments)
