10,000 Comments Made
This isn't about points or position. I made a goal to make 10,000 comments here in the rain and do so prior to June 1,2009. I am delighted that last evening, I posted that the 10,000th comment.
Of those ten thousand comments, one comment was over 1000 words. Literally over a page and a half in length. Of the ten thousand comments, well over two hundred would have qualified better as posts instead of comments. I guess I can get a little wordy now and then.
Of my readers and those I read on a regular basis, I think this was a goal that was more testament to the kinds of content we have here in the Rain. From the great tutorials, , literally classes on Short Sales and Reo's , Photography tips and guides, lots written about SEO, Ethics, Video, and more resources than most any of us could ever find on our own. Testimonials about the services , like Market Leader, Localism guides, you name it we have it. And that doesn't even begin to define the great listings, Local market reports, local things to do, events, and especially now " all about Social networking" on Twitter and Facebook.
With so much to read and learn from and so much to write about, the comments are there to add viewpoints, shared experiences, adding more insight and most of all to support my many friends and colleagues here in the Rain.
So I am very pleased that I made it this far and I am about to set new goals and will share them as well. I actually had people mentioning this to me the last few days helping to keep me on track. Here on ActiveRain, one never has to ask " What are friends for". I am here to be your friend and welcome your reciprocal friendship. Thank you all for bringing such great writings to the Rain and sharing them for all the rest of us to read and learn from. This blogging and commenting is an amazing life experience and I am so glad I am not missing it.
