Six Years and Counting in the Rain! Things I Won't Tell You!!!

Six Years and Counting in the Rain!  Things I Won’t Tell You!

You know how they say that “time passes when you’re having fun?”   Well, Six yearsit’s true!  

Today marks the beginning of my Seventh year here at ActiveRain!  Or, if you’re backward thinking, I just completed my 6th year at ActiveRain.

I was web-surfing one day and saw this ActiveRain symbol at the bottom of someone’s site.  One click and off I was to the world of Rain.

Before I joined, I wanted to speak to a member for their review.  And so, I found a Home Stager from my home state of Texas.  If you can’t trust your fellow Texan…. well I’m not going there.

KarenOtto,home stager in Plano, was happy to speak with me and gave the community a glowing reference.

So what am I not telling you?

~I won’t tell you of the remarkable community there is at ActiveRain.  If you don’t know it yet… you will.

~I also won’t tell you about the referrals that may come from your engagement here.  You’ll see them the more you interact.

~You won’t hear from me of the FREE TRAINING for SEO available via ActiveRain University.

~ And, I’m not going to tell you that I learn something new every day here at ActiveRain… you can read that in my weekly post.

~And you won’t hear from me that there is an abundance of support here for all members when they need it.

I will leave you with this….. don’t write for points and don’t seek out  features.  If that is your primary goal here, I can guarantee you that you will walk away having missed the most important benefits of ActiveRain.

Take a look at some of the other members who joined on this day...

Very cool. To be honest I did not realize it had been that long! I agree totally with your commentary. So wonderful to have gotten to know you on-line...and perhaps someday IRL.

The trip of a thousand miles begins with the first step.  That was, certainly, a step in the right direction!  Interesting to see who else joined that day.  I should look up that for me!  Thanks and congratulation!  Happy Anniversary!

Hi Kathy,  I am fairly new to rain so I am kind of feeling it out.  I first started to write for points but am realizing that you are correct.  There is a ton of information here and its all at our fingertips.

I have no idea what my join date was.  I think it was New Years Eve though....12/31/07 I think.  My first post was 1/6/08.  Where do you find your anniversary date?
