A Random Reflection
I have noticed that my ranking has gone UP from where it was before Christmas. Not that it bothers me, just a curious note of fact. However, it made me think about what the difference was to cause the change and I observed the following:
Involvement: Before Christmas I was here all the time. Posting answers, checking in at least 3-4 times a day. I was involved and it showed. That lead to the note that
Membership: Before Christmas had been monthly, and afterwards I had signed up for a yearly package, there was not the feeling of need-to-get-my-money urgency there. Yeah, I still come and it's a great place and I always learn something but it's like that safety net. I know it's here for me should I stumble and need a boost, but I no longer feel the uh-oh attachment.
So if you want a higher rank, hang out here a LOT and smile :)
