No this is not a funny or an advertisement for anything other than Fab40.

I have been a member of this site since Sept 2008. I have to tell you that in the beginning I NEVER thought I would make it to 100 points. Back then I was pretty new to social media and very skeptical. I think I likened it to online dating or something. I’m not sure why I was such a skeptic. So I lurked in the shadows.

At that point I had only been in Tennessee for 2 mos and I was lonely so I stuck with it. Add to that I was not working for the first time in my life. I had time on my hands.

So I continued to lurk..... And on occasion I would comment to someone’s blog or question. And I slowly started adding on points. I was still uncomfortable with posting blogs or questions. So I stuck to the comments. And back then we didn’t have smiley faces or thumbs up. You actually had to leave a comment.

Finally I wrote a blog. WOW I got 3 points the moment I hit publish!!!! I was excited!!!! Then I received comments. Some were surprising but most were supportive. So I felt brave and started posting more. I have posted inspirational sayings, diet tips, funny jokes, plenty of emails that were sent to me, stories on my life and family and news stories. And the points continued to rack up.

One day I decided to drop some sunshine  

on my fellow Tennesseans to see if I could get some responses. And what did I get? I did get some responses but I also received 20000 points on Fab40. That was a huge moment for me. I was pretty excited! I knew it was coming since Neicy had scored her 20000 not that long ago and I made a comment that I wasn’t far behind.
Then Annie123 scored her 20000 and I followed right behind.

The question comes up about the points every now and then about what are they. Well they are points for participation. And there are rewards too!

Check out this link for the points or click on the points link at the top of your screen for a description.

Now Yana has put a lot of heart and soul into this site. And I think it’s pretty awesome that she rewards us for participation. The only reward you get on Facebook is some creepers, stalkers and the occasional virus!

I prefer Fab40 rewards anyday!!!!!!!

Have I mentioned how much fun I have had along the way? Well I have!!! And support! And friendship! And Love! And valuable tips and info from A-Z!

This really is a great place to be!
