Four Years On ActiveRain


Four Years On ActiveRain


I have been on ActiveRain for four years; it’s hard to believe that all those years have gone by. The actual date was Sunday but I was a little busy with Barktoberfest (hugely successful), and too tired when I got home to blog about it.

Four Years On ActiveRain

My first blog on Oct. 20, 2009,  was about the Annual BikeFest in New Port Richey.  I’m glad I did it because the BikeFest is no more; this year it was canceled and I have the feeling it is gone forever. See post here. That blog is kind of an embarrassment because I had no idea what I was doing.

I’ve learned so much since then; I even went back a couple of years ago and added some SEO tricks to that one.  I knew nothing about SEO then; thanks Bob Stewart for the knowledge. Well, let’s face it -- I knew nothing about blogging. Four Years On ActiveRain

The very best thing I have received from ActiveRain is all my friends here. What a wonderful group of people! Thank you all for your support; thanks for the laughter and the tears, the learning and the love over the years and Thank You to the wonderful ActiveRain staff; I hope ActiveRain continues to be the great place it has been since the beginning.


I’m happy I discovered ActiveRain four years ago.

Time goes by too quickly. I do not even recall when I joined ActiveRain and will have to check.

Have a wonderful week.

Toni, too bad about the bikefest being cancelled.  Was most likely a lot of fun.  Barktoberfest sounds like a "doggone" lot of fun.  I don't know if your assistant there would think so though.  lol
