One of the things that I have noticed....as time progressed...and more people joined...and the network got bigger...the writing on the rain got better and better. In my mind that is where the groups play a very important role.
Now the beautiful thing about groups...they have group founders and moderators...not different from the Hot Tamale's that run this network but the difference is the Hot Tamale's have many more blog posts to read.
If you group is public...you will reap the benefits similar of a featured post on the dashboard but once again on a smaller scale.
Wouldn't you know it I was right and she asked me to do the First Ever "Blogger's Choice Spotlight ." Another Ah ha moment for me on the rain. I was really flattered.
I felt flattered...imagine how I felt a few days ago when she asked me to be a moderator.
What is the Purpose of the Blogger's Choice Group?
Blogger's Choice Selections has been formed to highlight Blog Posts that are NOT Featured on the Active Rain Network Blog dashboard but which You feel are Significant, Important, Interesting, Well Written & an Example of A Good Blog Post.
As the Active Rain Network experiences continued phenomenal growth, the task of evaluating all the posts is expanding. We recognize & applaud the hard work of the Active Rain Moderators in reading hundreds of posts each day & having to determine which posts to select.
They do a phenomenal job! However, the reality is that a number of Excellent Posts may not get the attention they deserve as the Network expands.
So, This is Your Opportunity as a Blog Author to Let the Community Know about Your Personal Favorites!
We ask the Question...If you were to Select a Few of Your Own Blog Posts each week that You felt were Special....What Would they Be?
What Benefit is there to Posting on this Forum?
This is an "Open Source" Group. We are still developing the best format & your suggestions are welcome. Groups on Active Rain are often indexed in search engine results.
Blogger's Choice has the potential to enhance your search engine rankings if the posts on this forum are worthy of reading & commenting on.
It's up to us! Also, membership in a group like this will expose you to great posts which you may otherwise miss as the Network of Active Rain continues to grow.
The Blogger's Choice Spotlight is an opportunity for a Member Volunteer to choose 5-10 Favorite Blog Posts to highlight. Volunteers are encouraged to contact the Group Moderator.
You will be notified by e-mail about your opportunity to host the Blogger's Spotlight. Blogger's Spotlight choices will be highlighted on the Group's home page.
We would love for you to join the group! Get Featured Soon!
NOTE: *This post started 6:42 pm yesterday... see how many more members joined...that is why the groups are so important!
