Am I Losing My Mind? I Don't Understand.

When I joined WA back in July 2018, I had an astronomical number I was sure they had taken the sum of 2 prime numbers, multiplied that by over 60 million, separated into 2 tables with 60 squares across and 6 numbers down, and then began the process of putting them into fractions and then breaking down the number further into exponential scientific notation. The final numbers were assigned to 2 staff members from the billing department. Each were assigned 3 stubby #2 pencils and 1 Pink Pearl eraser. The final steps were done over a paid weekend where infinity, where the notation indicates that the limit is taken from the positive side of the real line. Finally, they met on Monday and requested orders for ฯ€. One had cherry and one had apple. The end result to this simple math equation was the number assigned to me as a rank.

Now, the next information I am not necessarily proud of, but it does link closely with my confusion. Counting this blog, I have written 3. I have 2 active websites that are non-producers of any wealth so far. I decided to start the entire program over in January, 2019 due to a myriad of reasons, but mostly due to life rearing it's often beautiful but in my case, ugly fork-tongue demon from hell's head!! So, here is my confusion and why I have spent the afternoon in nonstop blathering like someone whose elevator doesn't go to the top floor, or a baker who is one ingredient short for a fruit cake, or all the cheese has slid from the cracker, or one not playing with a full deck, or a few french fries short of a Happy Meal...okay stop!!! <she said to herself!!> Enough drawing this out, and I am serious to wanting an answer...Today, I was awarded a merit badge for the Top 200 with a rank of 197! There MUST be a mistake. Don't get me wrong, it is quite an honor and I will miss it when they take it away, but there is absolutely nothing I have done to warrant such an honor. I comment on blogs and answer โ€œeasyโ€ questions all day long. (I hope they don't take that away because I love it and it has become my addiction...my life!). I am truly serious. Why? How come? If I have proved anything in this blog it is that I am certifiably daft!!! I love you all so much and yes, it is that strong. I am not the person I was when I entered WA (sounds like rehab doesn't it?). I sincerely mean this (and my husband believes it will happen anyway), if I never make a dime in this program, the relationships I have formed and the true spirit of friendship, love, and community I feel has quenched my thirst and filled my heart. You all have made a difference in my life and I will never be able to repay that blessing! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•

I can not believe that a nurse of 40+ years is daft. That is a position and career that is difficult and is admirable. Anything new is a challenge, and balance is very important also. Only 3 posts you say! Spend about 2-3 hrs each day working on your keywords for those website post and content. I am still learning, but soak up more training on SEO, and ask others who have been here 4-10 years and see if they can assist with your websites.
Just suggestions.
Take care,
Bill

You gave me some good chuckles. Don't argue with success; just say "thank you." You have apparently done enough for the rank wizards to notice you, so don't sell yourself short. Just keep it up, and before you know it, you'll be an ambassador.

Oh my goodness, thank you for the kind words!! It so totally took me by surprise that I thought I was losing my mind! I never got "into" WA for rank, fame, or recognition really, but I have truly fallen in love with this community, I can't stop!! LOL But, I do need to reevaluate why I am here and make that annual payment see some return on the dollar.Tjank you once again!

Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ

You are a ROCKSTAR Shugah! I love the way you've expressed what I've been feeling, but so much better!
Congrats on being in the TOP 200! You've earned it and you deserve it!
All the best,
Stephanie

Oh Stephanie (my sister's name), thank you so much for your kind words and I haven't been called "Shugah" in many moon so...
Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ

Great post Liz!
I know exactly how you feel, but couldnโ€™t have expressed itโ€™s eloquently as you have done here!
Thanks for the smile.

Oh Kyle Ann, it was my absolute pleasure!! How goes the battle? They are keeping those sharpened pencils out of reach, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi Liz*.

Your rank here at WA goes up with your comments and answers to people's questions as much as with writing posts.

Both are can be equally helpful and I can attest for how helpful your comments are.

WA rewards you for that with rank.

Keep it up!

Thank you so much my friend. Miss seeing you around and it's none of my bee's wax, but hope all is well! ๐Ÿ’•
Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ

All is very well, but unfortunately, I had to prioritize a bit. I was spending too much time writing here and too little on my websites.

Thanks for your concern.

Yes, ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜”I understand. I have been cautioned and I should take heed to lay low and get going on what I am here for!! ๐Ÿค‘My sites have suffered and it might be better to start from scratch! ๐Ÿ˜ซI'll keep an eye on you and you do the same! ๐Ÿ˜‡

prend soin de mon ami

Always!

Take care, dear Liz*!

LOL!?! Dead??? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ต

hahaha sorry, it was meant to be DEAR

Corrected! Multitasking can lead to serious mistakes.

Hahaha... All PHIed up now

Well done
๐Ÿฅฐ

PH=pure hell ๐Ÿ˜‡

I loved your post, laughed out loud! I lurk in the background reading posts way more than contributing, and even though my progress is slow as molasses, I canโ€™t give up because I love the WA community, too. Just take the honor of your ranking and enjoy it, obviously people agree you deserve it. Good for you!

Oh Joan, aren't you wonderful!! Thank you so much for the sweet word. I'm proud to say I am not a "lurker", but I've been known to peek, stalk, or unabashedly , streak thru the whole darn thing! But lurk??? Never!!! ๐Ÿ˜J/K
Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ

I think you are "pretty much?" on track there
...... BUT, you forgot to "Carry The One", and totally missed out on dividing "The Outcome" by "The Factorial of your Star Sign"

~~~ "You're Welcome" ;-)

Rock On M'Friend

Joe

Oh crap, you are so right Joe!! See, this is why I'm confused! I also forgot those dang gazintas that Jethro used for "figuring his math". All in all, I'm very satisfied with result. I greatly appreciate your comments and I will indeed Rock On!!
Yay Us Indeedl!! ๐ŸŒŸ

While I have no doubt that you have cracked the essentially simple formula for calculating your original rank, your current rank simply reflects your involvement with the WA community and is well deserved.

Thank you Phil and while you point out it "simply reflects..." it reminds me of that low hanging shiny thing you folks are always talking about. I'll take it!! ๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you for your kind words Phil!

Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ

It's just a great community and I agree with you that it's not all about the money. Although I won't turn my nose up at it when it finally starts rolling in!

LOL, touche Cheryl and I agree. I'm not sure if my present challenge with my husband is to protect me for fear I won't get any money (signing off as scam) or it will start pouring in and I don't have enough hiding places!! ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you kindly for your response Cheryl!
Yay Us Indeed!! ๐ŸŒŸ
