I've never done this, Roy. Not totally sure I have time in my day to add yet one more item to do relative to Active Rain. But when I see a post by a new member that is interesting, I read it, comment on it, and welcome them to the Rain.

Like Michael, I go to the First Blog posts and encourage those who have crossed to threshold of actually saying 'HI," those who have actually invested something.

But some of those are so timid they lose the momentum by disabling comments, or they tremble in fear that some will say 'Boo!"
