According to Sheldon Neal:

Ain't that the truth! :-)
If you truly "GET" ActiveRain, then it's only a matter of time before you become pretty obsessed, addicted, dedicated to ActiveRain !
I would venture to say that almost 100% of the peeps here who have amassed 50K or into the 100ks in points have gathered speed by truly getting the AR Passion and understanding why this place is so great.
Case in point.
How many of you have 'popped in' to check if someone in particular wrote a post recently, or to check the Featured Blogs for posts of value, and before you knew it, you had been reading outstanding blogs for about an hour, and were so far from the first post you read that you asked "How did I get Here?"
I find myself doing this all the time, and I ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO DO THE SAME !
To further explain my point, here's how it works.
I call it "Blog Mining" !
You find that initial post that you want to read, and if you are like me, you not only read the post, but you read the comments too !!!! Often what happens here is that you recognize someone from the comments, and say "Oh look! That person is checking in ! I wonder if they wrote a Blog Recently" and you head over to their blog. Then you read their post, 'and comments' and often see someone's comment there that you either know, or - even better sometimes - is that you read a comment from someone you have never seen before, but who leaves a very intelligent, thought provoking, or entertaining comment, and you are simply intrigued enough to go check their blog out too !
You see how this works !!
Suddenly an hour has gone by, and I'm reading and commenting on somebody's blog for the first time, and I've made a new connection !!!!
I've simply 'mined the community' for 60 minutes, and have inevitably read and learned a lot, and probably had a few chuckles with some of the posts and comments too !!!!
As has been mentioned on many posts recently, dont be the drive-by-comment guy who doesnt read the entire post - Instead READ THE COMMENTS TOO !!!
... there's often some Gold in them there comments !
And although you may find yourself on a blog and say "How did I get here?" ...
... you will almost certainly have enjoyed the journey to get there !!!!!
So Read On !!!
Cheers Everyone !!!!
