Almost The Mile High Club

by Sherry Riter in Rockin' Friend,Woo Us To Your Blog


It is a place to chat, learn, support and enjoy time with other people. There isn’t a competition to see who talks the most, but…

It all started mid-June 2010 when I created the Rockin’ Friends spotlight in my community. As we talk each week, the comments of the top 10 commenters of the now 8,622 members are tallied in the right side bar of the community. Everyone is able to see who is chatting the most and as we know, I highlight the top 9 commenters each week. However there is another group of people who have hit 1,000 comments in a one week period.

The first person to rack up 1,000 comments in the community was me. It created quite a commotion because no one could believe that I had posted and chatted so much. I couldn’t believe it either because in real life, I don’t talk that much.

Since then, there have been a few others who have attained the esteemed 1,000 comments in a one week period. Today another person hit that huge number, so I thought I would recognize those members of my community who are now in the 1,000 Comment Club.

Joan, the comedian who can be found at A Bad Marriage Is Fattening or Rich Beyond My Wildest Dreams is the second person who joined the group. As I recall, I think she stayed up all night chatting and didn’t sleep that night. Would that be considered obsession? Yes, I’m laughing.


The next person who joined the club was Katlupe who blogs at Homesteading On The Internet. Since she is frugal and exists on limited electricity as a homesteader, this was a monumental moment!


This week Teresa joined the club as she was driving across the country while chatting. Actually, Teresa was the passenger while she chatted. You can find her blogging at Teresa’s Thoughts and Ideas.


Congratulations ladies!!!

Well, if chatting in The Redhead Riter – Witty, Intelligent & Addictive Community is an obsession, then it is an obsession that I am proud to have!

I have met the most creative and talented people in The Redhead Riter Community! People who I never would have met if I wasn't a member of her wonderful community!

Congratulations to Teresa Wilkerson for being the Post Counter Diva this week and joining the 1,000 Comments In A Week Club!

By the way, Teresa is a very talented writer. Read these stories by Teresa Wilkerson on her website TA Meadows Short Stories and I am sure that you will agree with me!

I am NOT obsessed! The fact that my husband asks me how the RHR is doing practically every morning has nothing to do with it!

I am truly lucky to have found such a vibrant, supportive, utterly hilarious online sorority – with a few 'fraters' thrown in for good measure!

We get intelligent conversation, witticisms, differences of opinion, business advice….you name it, it's happening at RHR.

It is such a pleasure.

I agree with Just Life and Joan this community is the bee's knees. LOL

I love the acceptance and camaraderie of everyone here.
