William's Places: Over The 150,000 Mark!!! Hurray For ActiveRain!

Over The 150,000 Mark!!! Hurray For ActiveRain!

I just noticed the member count as I was reading comments on my blog this morning...

Who was the lucky member who pushed us over that milestone, I wonder?

Contrary to recent posts by other members who feel that the strength of ActiveRain has been diluted by the numbers participating and the quality of the posts have diminished since its inception, I personally feel that having more voices here means more experienced to draw from, moe experiences to share, more information to provide and to glean.

It also means more discussion and debate, more disagreements...

And more opportunities for everyone here in the Rain to grow!

Isn't that what ActiveRain is all about - the opportunities for us to grow as professionals, to help not only the consumer but each other?

Sometimes we do that not by writing specifically about real estate or the mortgage industry, or any other real estate related profession, but by sharing insights and stories and humor that may or may not have anything to do with real estate at all...

Because when all is said and done, we are more than just realtors, mortgage lenders, etc. - we are human beings with lives outside of our chosen professions, and we all need a place where we can share the joys and triumphs, as well as the lows and silliness of the days we spend doing what we do.

So here's to making ActiveRain an even better place than it was before...with 150,000+ members to help us all reach that goal!

What a great post. I am fairly new to ActiveRain and I've been an active member since March. This forum has really helped me tremendously. I've met so many great people and learned so much.

I agree with you 100%.  I find Active Rain to be better than ever and I think the little bit of controversy that rears its head lately, normal with this amount of members.   May it continue to grow and be a wonderful place of sharing, learning and caring it has been so far.

Hi William

Abosolutley......one of the greatest gifts AR gives is the gift of friendship with people who for sure...that would never have happened without AR.  It is interesting with the 'controversial' stuff going on at time but that's life.  Everybody has their say....and some are just louder than others and perhpas more passionate as well.

Happy Fathers' Day!

It is amazing how much this site has grown since I joined in early 2007. I joined when there were less than 16,000 members and now seeing over 150,000 is just a huge number.
