ActiveRain Hits 1,000,000 Blog Post Articles

Congratulations to Brandon Farmer from Charlotte NC who has posted the 1,000,000th post on AR. 

Brandon may have never known if it weren't for the first comment posted by Michael Thornton. Nice Mike :)

Here's the Official 1,000,000th post on ActiveRain: Charlottes-Positive-Market-Indicators

We have been waiting and watching patiently for this day and just wondering who it would actually be?

 

Jay Thompson wrote the very first Blog post on AR back on 06/25/2006.  Then 140,501 ActiveRain Members joined the community, followed Jay's lead, and together, have helped build this Network with enough content to reach this goal today.

How exciting to hit yet another milestone with ActiveRain and it's members.  This has never been done before or accomplished by any other Real Estate Network to the best of my knowledge.  So again, Congratulations to Brandon, and to ActiveRain and its members for making a permanent mark in the history books of ActiveRain, and the Real Estate Industry.  This is truly an incredible accomplishment!

1,000,000

Imagine, there are over 1,000,000 articles now on ActiveRain,
what a powerful resource for our members and consumers!

This is a very proud moment for us all, thanks Brandon and ALL AR members for making it happen!!

Here's Brandon's Featured Post about #1,000,000

Brad - The "new text widget" shouldn't be a hint, it should be shouted from the mountain tops!  Way to go on that one and a personal thanks for me.  Of course that now means I have more work to do.  Guess I better get to it.

What a cool milestone.  You read alll those posts about hitting 10k and 50k, and then you read something that says 1,000,000th post, that has much more impact!

Wow!  Congratulations to Active Rain, and congratulations to Brandon!  It's amazing to me that when I mention Active Rain to agents there are still some who don't know about it or figure it is something new and untried.  Some folks will always be behind the curve, I guess.  As for me, I love Active Rain.  I've made friends and learned so much.

Brad - I did notice that Google Analytics won't work as a text widget though.  Was sad about that.  Also, what tag should we use to center things in the sidebar?  I've been trying to use everything I could think of, but nothing seems to work for me.

Matt - GA will most likely be a separate widget.  Check out my OB, I did get quite a few working fine.  MY OB.
We'll keep adding.  Also requested the centering tag. 

I'm only speculating that because you commented here on this post, you must be looking to be the first to have a million widgets??  LOL~  :-)  just kidding... Call me later, I'll show you a couple things that might help.

Brad - I was thinking I want to be a) the 2,000,000th post, b) the 10,000,000th comment, c) the "I hit 100K in the shortest time ever" receipient.  I just want some free prizes really.  Maybe I could get one for the millionth mention of my iPhone envy (haha - my wife laughed at your "have her call me" comment).

WOW!  I am just now finding this post in the archives!  Interesting that I totally missed it before--and I am ashamed to say that I don't know who Brandon is!!  LOL  I'm going to have to go check him out here in the Rain!

Hope you're doing well!

Debe - wow, you're laggin!  lol~  Not sure Brandon is still blogging on AR or even in the business still. The investigation of "finding out about" Brandon might some great post fodder in and of itself... you know... like "Where's Waldo?"  haha~

I'm doing well, thanks for the hope!  Miss ya....     xoxoxoxoxo
