Widget Wednesday~ Tips to enhance your Outside Blog~ Numero Tres - 05/13/09 08:39 PM
As we head into week three of this series on Widgets to enhance your Outside Blog, I decided this week I was going to dig into a widget that is a little more complex to set up, but the rewards are even greater. Remember the famous line from Spider Man by Uncle Ben? With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility. This week we are going to discuss the FeedBurner Widget. What is FeedBurner? Feedburner does a plethora of things, but the feature we are going to talk today allows visitors to your blog that enjoy your posts to subscribe to your blog (42 comments)

3 Smartphone Applications to make you a Real Estate Social Media Genius - 05/05/09 03:18 PM
As some know, before coming on board with ActiveRain I spent a few months working for TMobile as a sales associate. During the time there, I was able to learn the nitty gritty of the phones and the features that they possess. One thing that really helped me was being able to explain how to use the smartphones for social media work. Many that came in had no idea that most of the major Social Media Networks have applications now that allow you to use the network easily and quickly from your phone. For sake of time, I will be covering (105 comments)
