Are you crazy or obsessed with Active Rain’s Point System?  I think who ever dreamed up this point system was a genius. For me it not only has challenged me to be consistent with posting and writing. It encourages you to stay involved and engaged. Plus who doesn’t love seeing themselves move up in the polls I like to call it (Election year). I have set point goals for the week, monthly, quarterly and by the end of the year.  I know it won’t matter once you reach a certain point, like a million or so. Of course each 100k point does say something about the dedication of those that have made the commitment. So I say to each that may stop by, it has given me a push to do something that only a few months ago I never would have considered.  A Sincere Thank you goes to the Active Rain Organiza...
