The resurrection of "Quiturbitchin' and just have fun"........................

On Saturday, I had a delightful phone conversation with Margaret Rome.  Somehow we got on the topic of Featured posts and she told me about a post she had written in 2007.  I had to check it out and I attached the link here: Please Don't Throw Me Any More Gold Stars

gold star


If you haven't read it yes, please do.  It's a fabulous post and holds up today.  Margaret isn't too concerned about Features, nor am I, you'll see her point when you read her post.

 It reminded me of a post I wrote last November that I thought I would resurrect.

ActiveRain has quite a few more members now!

Do you see anything here about Featured Posts?

How about Leaderboards?

So many posts have been written lately about what posts get Featured and how the same people get Featured all the time, and who passed up who on the Leaderboard and who's upset about it. 

Please people, get over it.

Quiturbitchin' and just have fun........................

Roger - It's fun to get a feature, but it's definitely not the be all and end all of AR.

Roger - who doesn't like a pat on the head?  I love getting a gold star!  I enjoy reading other members' featured posts and find them a gold mine of information.  I admit that I sometimes see a post with a few lines, misspelled words, etc. etc. and wonder how that exactly got featured but it does not bother me.  I have too many other biggies on my daily plate.  The gold stars add a little fun, but are not the main reason for being here.

You know I love this, Roger. (lol).  And besides, we all know how to write a "featured" post.  Just look at the majority of featured posts and you'll begin to see the general pattern (minus the few random ones).  I'll leave it at that.  (wink).

Mr. Ames, you said a mouthful sir...................I agree with you 100% and got more out of what you didn't say than what you said!  

Of course it's fun to get a gold star, but I'm sticking with what I originally said,  was the reason you joined ActiveRain to climb the Leaderboard and get your posts Featured?

Do you need to "shake it up" or start from scratch?
