I joined ActiveRain last year, but started to blog as a RainMaker in Dec. 2010. The very first blog I wrote about Keys to a successful IDX solution is still at the top of Google, Bing, and Yahoo. In the last 3 months I have received about 1,900 hits and generated about 136 registrations from it (7%). I love how with the help of ActiveRain's brilliant platform I can be found by people that are looking online for help! Plus with the points system it makes it fun to keep on blogging and commenting.
