Now you've done it! You have let me get Rainmaker status AND changed the state ranking pages so that my blog shows up more often.
"Shenanigans!" The Realtors cry! "It's so unfair! She's been here so much less time that we have and yet she shows up more often!"
That's right! With the new set up (Which I LOVE) the more active you are and the more often you blog, the more visible you are.
Sorry slackers! I know that you put in hours and hours of work to get where you were on the list. . . like two years ago, but that just will not cut it now. With the new way AR does things, the more effort you put in, the better your results. So you can sit on your status if you want, but you will be watching other more ambitious bloggers and Realtors fly by you if you don't continue to put in any effort.
The new AR is all about reaching that next level and about maintaning a standard of excellence. Business and Gardening 101 - if you don't grow, you die. . . and since I don't see AR dying anytime in the near future, growth it is! Being the kind and compassionate people they are around here you will not get deleted, or cast adrift in the heartless cold of cyberspace, they are too nice for that. Instead, you will just be so buried under all the other great blogs that no one will ever find you. And whose fault is that? No one but your own. Or maybe mine . . . just a little bit. ;)
The moral of this blog post is this: If you want to lead the pack you have to be able to run the fastest and the best. So get those fingers going, start that keyboard singing and hit AR with your best shot. You never know you just might get yourself featured for your efforts!
In the mean time, watch out slackers, because here I come! No mercy will be shown and I will rise to the top and dominate! ( -->Insert evil laugh of choice here.) . . . . Just as soon as I figure out how to export my blog. ;)
