Blog Dashboard - default settings changed - 03/27/07 12:47 PM
In an effort to increase the breadth of posts that are read by our members we've made a slight change to the Blog Dashboard today. Going forward the default setting will be set to show "All" posts instead of "Featured" posts. "Featured Posts" will continue to show on the index page, "ActiveRain.com", or can be accessed by clicking on "Featured" just under the "Blog Posts" Header on the blog dashbaord. (40 comments)
Dings! Results - 03/26/07 06:20 PM
I love reading about unique aspects of the cities and towns that you all live and work in. These types of posts will help you as you focus locally and try to drill down to become a local market expert. I don't care if you are nationally based, it's always better to have a target, and geography is an easy one. It might take some time but the more you all write about these things the better you will see your blog doing. Focusing on a particular place, or structure makes for easier writing. The subjects have a story ready to (27 comments)
Big traffic increases for ActiveRain and Localism - 03/22/07 04:54 PM
Back on January, 30th I made a post about both ActiveRain.com and Localism.com achieving some traffic milestones. ActiveRain and Localism each hit milestones yesterday I like to share these milestones as ActiveRain makes it march towards, uh, world domination. I love numbers so their fun to occassionally take a look at, and it also effects how much online exposure members are getting. ActiveRain.com Jan. 30, 2007: 10,308 unique visitors Mar. 19, 2007: 24,289 unique visitors (135% increase in traffic) Localism.com Jan: 30, 2007: 1,126 unique visitors Mar. 19, 2007: 3,881 unique visitors (245% increase in traffic) By my calculations ActiveRain should have by-passed Google and taken over the Internet sometime in 2008 (59 comments)

Blog Topic #8: Dings! - 03/15/07 06:55 AM
It's been a while since we've done a blog topic, were we share our perspectives on a particular topic. We've got a number faces so I expect this to be good. The "Your Towns" blog topic was excellent and had some great results. We're going to do it again, something a little smaller this time. Instead of towns we're doing buildings.One blog that's been successful focusing exclusively on this is Curbed. I'd encourage you to look at it.What to writePick a home, building, or some type of structure in your market and tell us about it. Since we're mostly in residential side (37 comments)
