Well, on reaching 100,000 points I was invited here to the Silver Star HOF by Kathy Clulow and here I am. $100,880 points ago I began blogging here, not to earn points or money, and not even to make friends, but to vent. I already had a Wordpress blog, and I didn't have any time anyway. I just wanted to see if anyone else had been scammed by a certain thing going around, and I found Active Rain on a Google search. I registered, but I wouldn't make a comment for 6 months and I wouldn't make a blog entry for almost a year. I started blogging consistently after being a member over a year. What's happened in the interim? If I knew what was in store, I would have started earlier. My blogging and Internet efforts have yielded the following results in the past year:
In short, magic.
I won't take a year to reach 200,000, I promise you that.
Best wishes to all!
