200,000 points on ActiveRAIN - Just the tip of the iceberg?

By
Real Estate Agent with ACTIONAGENTS.NET

I'm taking a few minutes this morning to celebrate a couple of mileposts on AR:   One year (and two weeks) in the RAIN.  And  200,000 points.

It's been fun.  Still is.

It's been a run.  So much  to do.  So little time.

I have learned a lot here from the membership of AR.  About blogging to be sure, but also about all aspects of  working in this industry.

I have a lot more to learn about both.

So far I've only seen the tip of the iceberg.
The tip of an iceberg

I may never get a chance to see the rest of it.....not becuase it's not available here but because it's just impossible for one person to get his or her hands on the whole thing.

It's kind of like this familiar pix of the whole iceberg.  It looks like somebody really got their lens around it.
Faked pix of a whole iceberg But it's a fake, a composite, a conglomeration of images taken 1000's of miles and whole oceans apart.

The only part taken underwater:  the black undersea background.

Nobody's really taken such a photo yet.

Nobody ever will.  It's physically impossible.



I don't intend to be the whole ball of ice here.  I'm just working my best.

A great one year run.  Could have run faster.  Must sell real estate with some of my time.

Everyday that I blog and read about blogging, I realize how much more I need to learn. All that stuff under the water in your photograph. Congrats on the milestone.

Hey Jim - Way to go old buddy! 200K is a huge milestone at the Rain and I'm sure it's one of many. Now where's that shot of you celebrating with a Florida bikini girl? :-)

There is a lot left to learn ..even after 200,000.

John -

I don't have bikini-clad "landscape" easily available like you do down there at space cape beach.

Jenny -

Well, great minds think alike...I considered shouting this out to you, too. I'll read your post now.

I don't know, Jim. Some things are only impossible in the here and now. The future? Who knows? My wise old grandmother did teach me, though, to never say never.

Yo're right:    Never say never is a good philosophy. 

I was just parroting what I read on two or three sites that were debunking the photo.  They said light does not travel well enough underwater to physically allow the underwater part of the shot.  The photo includes a shot of above surface ice that has been flipped over to be the underwater part of the image.

A million points?  4 years at a minimum...er ...at the maximum rate.  It will never happen that soon.  I might retire before reaching that point anyway.   I have a lot to learn implement before AR really pays off for me.
