I can remember my first exposure to Active Rain was reading a post written by Bryant Tutas, about "Expired Letters" and it was his 100th post! I never have met Bryant, but love reading his stuff!
ONE HUNDRED POSTS!
I thought that 100 posts could never be written by a normal person in over a hundred years!
I then joined, with encouragement from Fred Carver, and spent the next 3 years just reading and commenting. No wonder it would take a hundred years to do 100 blog posts! Again, I have never met Fred, but love his style!
Now I have actually written 500 posts on Active Rain, and am so glad I have - I am blogging for business daily, and am getting new business daily. Some are simple inquiries, but lots of great business has come of it!
As a matter of fact, without the activity coming from Active Rain blogging, I doubt that I would have had the courage to open my new brokerage last winter.
I also am from an area that is online a lot, and many folks tell me that my marketing is excellent - they are reading my blogs!!!!
WOW! Never thought that I would be the one writing this!
It took me meeting two fellows from as far away as you can get (Florida and Vancouver) to get me into Active Rain - and now look at me!
Woo Hoo!!!! This is my 500th Post! WOW!
