Points are like candy crush on FB to me ... nothing.  It's all about making my phone ring.

Points do not bring me business, they're just a fun game.  Correct blogging techniques is what brings in the customers.

The points have not inspired me to blog; the quality of the bloggers, my joy for blogging, the AR information, AR training & Q&A's do motivate me. It's the content, not the points...unless we can use the points for travel to get to Hawaii or Europe...can we?

Many members are driven by the points even though we know that the points are not an indication of successful blogging or success in the business.

Hi Michael -- I like points but the benefits I have seen from this forum have been far more important.  

The interaction keeps me coming back and I think points are a part of that but definitely not the only reason.

It cycles just as the business cycles and points will flow when on and curtail when busy. Summer generally would be an on time but not this year so much.
