New Milestone Attained - 30,000 Comments Received on my AR Blog!

I realized that I hadn't written a real, old-fashioned milestone post in awhile, and I thought that watching the odometer cross the 30,000 mark for comments was as good as any other, since it is indicative of the relationships that I have developed here, as well as the value that I hope I've added during my 17-month stint on ActiveRain.

Here's my current "box score", if you are interested:


As you can see from the large disparity between "Comments Received" and "Comments Left", I haven't had time to keep up with my comments by responding to every one left on my blog, much less reciprocating to others.  I made a decision awhile back that I would rather continue to contribute here by way of posting more often than by trying to keep up with comments. 


If you do leave a comment on one of my posts, I can assure you that I read EVERY one of them, even if I don't respond.  I do try to respond to direct questions, sometimes via email.



I was tempted to try to figure out my favorite comment ever, but that's like the proverbial needle in a haystack, considering how many high-quality and funny comments I've received.  Instead, I will share with you the very first comment that I EVER received here on ActiveRain, which came on August 5th, 2007.  It was from my second post: Extra mortgage payments - best method?:

I am going to keep an eye on this post it has me curious too,  I am going to ask around.  Thank you for the post.

Thanks to Lorinda for being the first person here to acknowledge that I wasn't writing to myself.  Jeff Belonger also commented on that one, with a solid answer, as it turns out.  No surprise there, since he is a loan genius.

My most commented post (and currently the most commented post ever on ActiveRain, with 3,060 comments as of this writing) is this one: How to Get Over 100 Comments on Your Blog Posts - A Retrospective.

Incidentally, the very first comment that I left for someone else was both profound and ingenious.  Rather than ruining the greatness here, I'll let you click to see it yourself: 08/05/2007 12:30 AM.

THANK YOU to all of my subscribers, regular readers, and friends for helping me to feel like an important part of this stellar community!
