BARBARA TODARO RESPONSBILE FOR MY POSTING HABITS

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with People first then business! Ran Right Realty Riverside, Ca BRE LIC #636943

Here I was enjoying posting and commenting every day and week steadily. When you are finished, you go to the ActiveRain pay window and receive your points and all is well. Then, I came across a post or comment Barbara did many months ago. In it she stated that there is no reason to not blog past the allotted amounts. In fact, she encourage others to do so. Well since then....

POINTS OR PASSION

Every-time I approached and satisfied my point quota, if I saw a post that I wanted to comment on I would and points had nothing to do with it. If I had a post I wanted write, points were no longer involved. I went past points and into the world of expressing myself for no payment but sheer joy of sharing

TALES FROM THE OLD POSTS HOME

It bears sharing that when I first got started, I drafted most if not all my posts in advance and kept them in post queue. I would launch my point minimum and save the rest for the next appointed slot. NO MORE. I now save nothing and just proceed. Barbara words gently egg me on...post & comment...blog past your points and.... and then I come under her spell

BARBARA WAN-KENOBI

It was like hearing Obi-Wan Kenobi telling Luke in Star Wars..use the force Luke...I would hear Barbara's... "use the post Richie" and next thing I knew, I was at my keyboard, looking down at my fingers which were blurred as they typed ever so quickly. Then, a quick spell-check, then another spell-check (to be sure) and I launch...thinking of Barbara...

IT OPENED DOORS

A funny thing has happened now that I use this new post coaching of Barbara's. I no longer have any trouble posting and in fact my post are multiplying like caged mice...I now have to take a "post-slow-down pill" in the middle of the week...

Barbara...this post is for you

Good morning Richie. I think this is funny but oh so true. I'm sure Barbara will enjoy this as I have. Just for the record, I met my points for the day an hour ago.

Richie:  Many disagree that you post all your efforts at once.  Something about getting better SEO if you don't.  I see many people just do a blog dump all at once & I've always heard steady as she goes is the best way.

My 2 cents is write when you feel like it and write when you don't. Besides, if you're like me, you always have something to say on just about any given subject, as long as you are breathing and capable of thought.

I don't know if this will make sense to you, Richie, but it's what I immediately thought of when I read your post.  I used to go to bed at a certain time, and wake up to the alarm clock - but that stopped 16 years ago.  Now I go to bed when tired, and wake up when rested.  I'm with you, Richie.  It feels good to break a mold, and just do it for yourself.
