No. I have the opposite issue of spending too much time on ActiveRain.

LIke Lise Howe, I would ask what bare minimum means. If spending 1-1.5 hours a day on AR is bare minimum, that's about all I'm willing to give.

I do  20 comments and 10 posts per week. I try to do the minimum when I am busy . But sometimes I cannot comment. I write posts in advance and schedule them. I do not reblog .

I never do anything minimally except my decorating is considered minimalist.

Hi Michael -- what is considered the bare minimum?   As far as I know - there is no time clock or supervisor telling me what I should write, comment, answer, ask or even check in.   

This can be a place that is rather addictive as well as frustrating at times.   Time is definitely a concern and while there may not be a refund policy in place --- I have received some pretty nice returns on my investment of time -- not only business but the relationships that were quite unexpected.

I cannot criticize others who may be busier with other facets of their life and can't participate to their fullest.  I had about 6 months where my  participation was in its all time low ...

I do less than I used to, but am trying to remain a very active member, I do more than the bare minimum most days.  But really, what is the bare minimum?  Logging in?  20 comments?  Maxing points then bailing?

I browse through the top posts daily and comment, if I have something to say. I try to post a blog as my boss once a week. This is a small portion of our online activities.

I too am not sure what you mean by bare minimum.  I do what I have time for and don't really stop to count how many comments I make in a day.  I do one post a day because that is my personal goal.  If I have the time and desire to read and comment more, then I do.  I don't stop just because I won't receive points for something.

I choose to pop in and try to comment back. If I have time I will post something. Since the SEO power of AR has been diminished I have been putting time into more beneficial avenues but I'm cautiously optimistic that the new crew can bump the ol' place up a bit. If they can, I may find myself more willing to invest time as I do very much like the people here.

If what I do is the bare minimum, then I had better clone myself to reach my full potential in the Rain!
