Friends are great - BUT....

By

I was reading "The Lovely Wife's - What would happen if RECIPROCITY paid a vist to active rain"  post .  I commented.  I agree with her.  I do see alot of the same people commenting on the "popular kids" blog. I see the people who have huge scores getting ratings and exsorbant amounts of points.  Like I said, I agree with The "Lovely Wife". 

But -

There is almost always a but....

Why does anyone care?   Are we in High School again?  Aren't we PROFESSIONAL's living in an ADULT world?  Aren't we here to make Money?  I mean.. I know its nice to have friends.. but, I dont think that the Lovely Wife or Bryant or Kristal or anyone on this blog venue will be willing to pay my bills.  Right?  The points to me mean really - nothing.  I want the rankings on Google.  I want the search engines to INDEX me.. It can be from Active rain or my personal blog.. I really don't care.  I want a home buyer to look up "Homes for sale, Whitestone NY" and see MY name come up.  I want someone to google MY name and come up with ME.  How to contact me.  I don't think that they buyers/sellers will care that I dont have as many points as Krystal or The Lovely Wife - They want to find me - a PROFESSIONAL real estate agent - who wants to pay her bills and worry about selling their home.  Not how to boost my POINTs on Active rain. 

Again - this is just my opinion..

Bravo- I agree completely.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with getting points for fun or for the competition, but it seems like some people get into the whole points thing so much that maybe their perspectives are a bit off...

Greg its funny - I just posted a comment to you on the other post that I had -

There are some good bloggers and some not so good - but I think that it is safe to say that there are some good realtors and some bad ones.. and some good ball players and some not so good - But, you do have to give credit where credit is due.. ya know?
