Why wasn't my last post FEATURED? $25.00 For The Best Reason.

Why wasn't my last post FEATURED?  $25.00 For The Best Reason.

I just received a comment on the post in question (see below) from an AMBASSADOR, wanting to know why that post was NOT FEATURED.  I didn't know what to tell them.  So, I sent a Tweet to @ActiveRain and asked them.  I got a quick response from the Active Rain Tweet Master/Mastress, advising me that THEY do NOT possess the power to FEATURE, but, will SUGGEST it to the FEATURE PANEL.

I don't like to keep AMBASSADORS waiting, and I really want to answer their inquiry, as quickly as possible.  I don't know when the FEATURE PANEL is meeting again, so, I am asking for your help. 

Let's try to figure this out.  The Winner will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate.  The member that provides the Best Reason wins.  I will select the BEST REASON.  

Just leave a comment and get 25 Points.  What the heck, leave 2 separate comments and get 25 Points for each comment (Limit of 2 comments per member).  You can leave all the comments that you want, but, only your first 2 comments will be considered for winning the prize. 

The deadline is tomorrow 6/8/11 at 9:00pm Pacific Time.  Thank you for your help.

     

Here is the post that was not FEATURED.

     

The Best Of The Newbies. Ranked by the year they joined Active Rain.successkey.jpg Key To Success

Once upon a time, every Active Rain Member was a Newbie. That's right, we all started at the bottom. While a few devoted the amount of time and energy required to rise to the top of the list, others took a slow and steady approach. It's all good, as long as you are getting value from your membership.

Having the largest number of points, doesn't necessarily make you the best at what you do. But, it sure helps you get noticed. These members all deserve to be noticed and studied. Check them out to see what they are doing, and how they are doing it. Study successful people and YOU will become more successful.

Here are the Best of the Best, ranked by the Year They Joined Active Rain. This allows everyone to better appreciate how well they are doing, compared to other members that joined in the same year. If you would like to get an even better individual indication, you can also check by each month of the year. In fact, you can even check by the day that you joined Active Rain.  The link will be provided at the bottom of this page.

Good luck and best wishes always.

Karen, You are too old to believe in the FEATURE FAIRY.  There is NO FAIRY.  All you have to do is get access to Bob's  link and the rest is history.  Congratulations on being in the Top Row for 2011.  Just think how much easier it would have been with that link.   Best wishes always.

Thank you Richard.  I thought I'd chime back in as I see you have 95 comments, and I'm doing my diligent part to get you up to 100.  ;-)

oh, and who you calling "too old" anyway.  ok, there, I did my part....99 comments....Richard you need to come back as Brian stated and declare the winner and finish off your blog at 100 posts.  I think I should get a runner up prize for finalizing out that 99th comment for you.  YOU would not have reached such monumental responses without me.  :-P   lol   All the best!

ATTENTION ATTENTION!!!  I just received a call from the infamous Richard Yates.  He's on the road heading to make an offer but he gave me proxy to post on his behalf.  :)

He assured EVERYONE that he will announce the winner tonight.  So, let's all hang tight and rest assured, he'll be chiming in later.

Tammy, With just a little more time you will be on the top of every list.  You have already risen high and fast, your content is excellent, your profile is awesome and you have mad skills.  You are already an Ambassador, that I can get behind.  (Pause)  You are doing great, keep it up (that's what she said) and I will look forward to seeing you on top, soon.  ;-)  Now that was some serious SEO.  Best wishes always.

Stacey, PLEASE, do not encourage Bob.  He will start believing that he really is funny, and then, we will all paythe price.  One person's Agony is another person's Ecstasy, I am quite certain, that like Karen, Bob is secretly pulling for my FEATURED AGENT RESTRUCTURING PLAN.  Bob would end up with THREE HAPPY MEMBERS, which would be an unbelievable Win/Win/Win/Win.  Look what you have just pointed out.  Although we may not agree on everything, we can certainly agree about the alcohol.  Cheers and best wishes always.

Elizabeth, Never take another break, you may miss out on something very important. Please, don't agree with Karen, she believes in the FEATURE FAIRY.  I know what you mean about some people getting FEATURED all of the time.  They blow their nose into a tissue, take a picture of the tissue and it gets FEATURED.  I will always share what I find out, when and if, I find it out.  Thank you for commenting and best wishes always.

Lorraine or Loretta, Thank your throwing your support behind my belief that Bob is just making stuff up.  Obviously, his comment is far beyond suspect and borders on total fabrication.  I appreciate YOUR comment that makes me feel better about my title.  Best wishes always.

David, Regarding your comment: "I also agree with Elizabeth some of the "featured" posts are truly garbage and its the same people getting the GLORY... why not me!??!?!?!?!!"  Amen Brother!  Why not ME, indeed.  Or, did you mean, why not YOU.  Either way, ME or YOU is fine.  Just not THEM!  Thank you for commenting and best wishes.

Karen, I found you.  Out of all the agents that signed up in the year 2007, YOU are currently ranked #107, but, can easily pass a few more members very quickly. Thank you for taking the time to check out this post and best wishes always.

Cathy,Thank you for commenting.  Sorry for the delay in my response.  I released too many posts in too short of a time, and got buried.  I have seen you out and about on several comment chains and you are startng to get noticed.  That's great!  Just keep it up and your ranking will continue to improve very quickly.  Yes, the other post did finally get FEATURED, but, not this one, that has over 107 comments.  Not every post that gets FEATURED, gets any where near this many comments, which proves that the readers ultimately decide what they like.  Whether or not, it is FEATURED. 

Having Bob Stewart join this comment chain was an unexpected surprise, which just made the entire post that much more fun, for everyone.  It also gave me content for another post.  Thank you again and best wishes always.

Sondra, Yes, Bob is a funny guy.  When you are home, you are always up past your bedtime.  I hope that you are staying home for a long time.  When is your tour completely over?  I still want to get caught up regarding your new company affiliation and future plans.  Thank you for staying up late to comment.  Best wishes always.

Karen Fiddler, Surely, you are not buying Bob's story.  That is more unlikely than T. packing his bags and moving to another city.  Bob is currently considering my idea of having THREE FEATURED AGENTS in cities like Mission Viejo, with a population of over 100,000.  We will keep you posted.  Thank you for commenting and best wishes always.

Dear ENFORCER aka Brian, Thank you for the encouragement to do the right thing, right now.  It has been taken care of, and I have declared the winner.  It was NOT Bob Stewart.  Best wishes always.

Karen, Karen, You are right, I would never have made it to 100 comments without your support.  YOU make me want to be a better me.  I also appreciate your willingness to step in as my official representative and for informing everyone, of my status and that a Winner would soon be declared.  Thank you again and best wishes always.
