Active Rain Points

I need a little bit over 100 points to move from 41st in the state to 40th place... Thus, this post.  I know they are only POINTS and you can't do anything with them, but I want more.  The more the better.  I read Jay's post about buying them on EBay, but I thought that was cheating...LOL.  But I digress.  This is just a cheep way of moving ahead of my next COMPETITOR for points.  I guess I will have to work a bit harder for the next victim...

YOu know that old addage -- the more you give the more you will receive -- if you just go for points, then you miss the entire point of AR -- to make new connections.

Danny,

It had to happen sooner or later that someone is going to come up with the idea of setting up shop on EBay to sell points. Just kidding.

Buy AR points on ebay, what will they come up with next, keep blogging and you will build your points up,

How about uploading pictures and communities to Localism.com.  The Codgers just announced a contest, too.  I wonder if they're offering points for the winner?

There was a recent post about the selfish vs helpful AR member. The point this blogger made was that when he was going to refer someone, he checked their point summary. If the individual did no more than enough blogging to get points, he would go to the next. He looked to see if there was some balance between blogging and commenting. Since I looked at your summary, it would appear you lean toward the selfish side. Very few comments. You have also publicly made your philosophy know. Not a good idea.

Jim, Jim, Jim...... Where should I start.  I think you should look in a mirror.  Never cast stones at someone you don't know or only read about.

Jim, maybe you should do a little research before you make a fool of yourself.

Let me see, 40 Post and 35 Comments made.... Can you say balanced....

Posted by Danny Frank, The Real Estate Expert (Heritage Texas Properties) over 11 years ago

Danny, I did look at your summary, also at many of your posts, posts are good, probably comments also. If you paid any attention, the attitude of cheap points concerns me. I started with AR last year. You could easily find articles that were of interest. You could get helpful hints easily. Of course that was before we had 32,000 members. Now with that many members, all blogging, the value as an information source is diluted.

Today there are 278 pages of blog summaries. 278 only goes back to 5/23/07. I have not counted how many summaries there are on the average page. Can you see the potential problem here? No? OK. Do your thing, your opinion is yours, I have a right to mine also.

I am sorry you take exception to my comment, ignoring the shorter ones above that convey the same thoughts, you know Joan, Natalie and Joan.

'Nuff said.

Jim, you are in Sun City for a reason..... Do it..... Relax

Hey, I have a really novel idea....

Why not write and post good qualtiy consumer-oriented content instead, categorize it to your specific market area within Localism, attracting potential clients who will use your services, and result in a nice commission check?

And here is the real bonus...you'll earn points at the same time!!!

I'm fairly new to AR and don't even know what points get me?  What is the point???
