400Th Blog. This has been quite ride in the Rain.

 

As many of the members know this has been a wild ride for Clint A. McKie and Desert Sun Inspections In Carlsbad, New Mexico 88220. With my four hundredth post I thought I would look at some of the most commented posts.

I remember when I first got started in the Active Rain Community. I was a “lot of timid” when I was getting ready to post about an inspection or anything in general.

I had thought's like “what if they don't like the post”. What if they are laughing at me behind my back?

I have had so much help in the Rain by the members who want to help you succeed.

If any one needs help in the Rain feel free to just call out in a post and ask for help.

Also I am now number Three in the state and I have 32 featured posts.

Hi Carl,

You have changed your picture. Good for you. Very good one to use. I like being in the Rain and have found a lot of friends here. Ones I would normally have not known about without the Rain.

Best wishes for a great weekend in the San Antonio area.

 Best, Clint McKie

Hi Wayne,

I try and keep it simple. Maybe sometimes a little too simple.

Some members might think I'm a redneck. LOl

Have a great Sunday in Fort Myers my friend.

Thank you Tom.

There are still some times that I don't really have a clue as to what I'm going to post about.

Some days are far better posts than others. But I guess it like buying a news paper. Never know what's in it till you read it.

Have a good week ahead this week.

Hello Adrian,

Thank you for the kind words.

What little bit I do know about construction I try and pass on within the Rain and it's members.

Glad to help my friend.

Have a good week in the Seattle area.

Hi Joan,

It's funny how friendships are just found right in front of you when you least expect them.

Yours is one of them. Thank you for your continued support of my posts and informational writings.

Have a wonderful day in the Denver area today and this week.

Hi Liz and Bill,

I was intimidated in the beginning. And still am a little now.

And with good cause. I don't know a member who likes to write a post and get one or two comments.

That's the worst feeling of all. Like no one wants to even read what you are posting about.

But 400 posts later and I'm not so worried any more. Post or comment. I will still be here.

Have a good day and week in Warren County Ohio.

Best, Clint McKie
