My One Million Year!

My One Million Year!


This is it! 2014 is the One Million Year for me. Maybe not a million dollars, but definitely a million points. I can hardly believe I'm saying that out loud. 

I remember that I happened onto Active Rain in 2008 by accident. I knew I needed to get onto the Internet and there was a class being held about just that. The course description talked about some other sites :) and Active Rain. So in preparation, I decided to check it out.

Hooked right away!

Had I posted this yesterday (as I intended) I could say that it was my 5-year anniversary of my first Active Rain post. Wow....I had no idea what I was doing and even less idea of how much Active Rain was going to mean to me in the following 5 years. I had about 2000 points at that time; some for my profile and a few comments. 

Now....I'm a quarter the way to my next goal. 1,000,000!

It won't take me a year to get there, so I can confidentially state that this is my year. Maybe I'll make $1,000,000 too. With all that I've learned here, it's entirely possible!

I'd bet on you. The points are a gimme; the dollars are well within your potential.

Looks to me like you're almost to 1,000,000 points now.

I like these little milestones.  Sure, they are "feel good" but who doesn't appreciate feeling good???

What a huge milestone that will be.  I remember in 2010 when I signed on seeing you as a regular contributor - clearly you've been far more consistent than me!  Here's to a million points, and a million dollars.

Hello Karen,

I am a bit behind you in points, but I will also join the Million Points Club this year here in the Rain - so much fun!

Karen - I started a year before you, but I'm behind you in points.  I know so many people say points don't mean anything, but hitting the million mark means you are a disciplined blogger.  Many agents start blogging, but very few do it consistently.
