Chart - Who Is Going To Win Todd Clark's 50,000 Points Give Away Here On ActiveRAIN?

Todd Clark, the Tigard and Beaverton, Oregon Real Estate Expert is giving away 50,000 blogging points to celebrate hitting ONE MILLION POINTS here on ActiveRAIN.

The winner merely has to guess the time Todd will hit that magic mark.....for the first time.

Then he will go back to 950,000 and have to work his way back up to ONE MILLION POINTS for a second time.  (That won't take him long.)

Did you enter?  Good!  Because entries in his contest were cut off Wednesday night at midnight CDT, the end of the normal scoring day here on AR.

218 AR members entered their guess before the deadline.

A few guessed more than once (a violation of the contest rules).  A few others failed to state a value for "seconds" (also a rule violation).
 You can call them out on strikes.

Would you like to know your odds of winning?  Well, I can't tell you. But I can show you how many people guessed which date.  Maybe you can handicap yourself from that.

A few guesses extended well into May.  They are not likely to win.

A few guessed Todd Clark would reach ONE MILLION POINTS on April 20-April 22.  They've already lost.

 As of late tonight, Todd has only 4066 points go.

That might take an ordinary, active RAIN blogger most of a week to accomplish.  But Todd Clark is no ordinary RAINER.  He'll get there in less time.

I'm not the only one to think so.  Just look at the length of the long blue RAIN lines on April 26th though the 28th.

If there was a Vegas line on this contest (and there probably is), the smart money would now be on April 26th.  Why? Because tomorrow, being Friday, Todd will likely post his usual 19 weekly blogs showing market data for the hyper-local areas within his real estate work area.

Todd Clark is highly predictable in making posts to his blog -- but not in the content that he posts.


His content can cover anything....replete with appropriate pictures.

However, he does write mostly about Real Estate or Living in Beaverton or Helping Families Home. His life revolves around his family....and so, naturally, do a lot of his blog posts.

Even their pet pig takes a starring role at times.
Most of all, you can set your clock (your contest clock) by him. Todd Clark knows a key to blogging success is consistency of effort.  And he manages that in a MILLION DOLLAR way.  

Thanks, Todd  - for all you do here in the RAIN.


I have a guess for when you will reach ONE MILLION POINTS for the second time:     June 27th.  At exactly Noon.  Plus or minus a few seconds.

(Don't count on him giving away 50,000 points again.)
