What's so GREAT about Localism?  It's a TREASURE....
There are some people, especially "Newbies" to Activerain that may not see the Advantages of posting to Localism.  As a Feng Shui Consultant who lives and play on Long Island, NY and in New York City, I love writing about the different areas I find myself in.

Two YEARS on Activerain.  In the beginning, a particularly ROUGH start.  What I didn't realize when I signed on to this Adventure:
