It is with great pride and much humility that we announce ActiveRain has reached 200,000 members!

As of Monday January 17th, 2011 our membership number has gone over the 200,000 mark. The journey to get to this point wouldn't have been possible without the amazing support of our members. We've always been big dreamers, but nowhere in our wildest dreams did we imagine the impact this community would have on our own lives and on the lives, and businesses, of the members who choose to participate here.

It's our members that have made ActiveRain the foremost place on the internet to get information about the real estate industry. It's our members that have made ActiveRain the greatest community of professionals on the internet today. It's our members that have chosen to passionately share their love for the industry from which they derive a living. It's our members who have freely shared with one and other the secrets to their success. It's our member that have chosen to educate and connect with millions of consumers a month.

Much like many of you, we've traveled to the far corners of the internet, and never have we seen a more caring and engaged group of people online. The support and kindness extended by our members has literally changed the way we view our industry. The members of this community are a special breed of professional and we will never be able to thank you enough for helping us achieve this milestone.

Our journey to get to 200,000 members has been all about our members!

We are going to be hosting a little party on Twitter at the hashtag #AR200K. We'll be tweeting special messages under that hashtag and giving away some prizes for our membership. If you haven't taken the time to figure out Twitter, it may be worth looking into today so you can follow along at the hashtag #AR200K. We will be giving away ActiveRain shirts, some community sponsorships, and a few free Rainmaker accounts.

In addition to winning something cool via Twitter, we'd also like to extend a special one day invitation to our members to get a free community sponsorship. You'll have to follow the directions exactly, but they are pretty simple:

1. Send an email to activerain200k@activerain.com.
2. In the email include a link to the community you would like to sponsor for free. Obviously it can't be previously sponsored by someone else (and make sure it's a community please, and not a link to a city page as those can not be sponsored)
3. Include your user name.
4. In the title line of the email use: 200K Community Sponsorship

This is a one day only promotion and emails will be accepted at that email address until 11:59pm Pacific Time, Monday January 17th. Your community will be added to your account by Friday, January 21st. That day you should check the 'my community sponsorships' link on the left hand side of your 'my home' page. (Is not applicable to communities you already sponsor). If two people ask for the same community, preference will be given to the first email received.

Thank you so much everyone and we look forward to our next 200,000 members and hope that you will continue to help us spread the word about ActiveRain.

It really is Sharon!  I had to get off the Twitter party to attend the Active Rain University.  Then I jumped back on.  It was crazy, but it sure was fun! What day here in the rain.  Glad it was a snow day for me (it's ugly out there with sub zero weather heading in)!
