Anyone can end up featured. For example....your post about Social media posts and the REALTOR® Code of Ethics that is currently featured :-)

You have your answer on the Feature, Cody, but I would encourage you to contact Bob Stewart (the Kingpin) and ask him for a voucher for a Rainmaker account. They are offering a great deal to upgrade, and then your posts would be public and not just to AR members. bob@activerain.com

Good luck to you!

Well you already have your answer but I thought I would reiterate that getting Featured is not only for Paying Members but the benefits of being a Rainer are worth the investment.  See you in the Rain.

As far as I know, all Feature worthy posts are featured ... it does not matter if the author has a Rainer account.  That said, no one sees the post except the AR community.

In my observation, and i know many will argue with me, but featured posts are almost always the same two dozen allstars or else given to brand newbies to encourage them to blog.
