For those of you out there that haven't discovered the site called ACTIVERAIN, well you are missing out just a little bit if you surf the net, enjoy posting, blogging and commenting and upping your game whatever that may be. Social or professional, this site has much to offer just from first glance and personal experience
Many use the site for educational purposes. Real Estate is the main format of exchange and we all know how diverse and big a Universe... Real Estate is and can be. However, in addition to that, there are many other shares and cares going on … (28 comments)

posting: ACTIVERAIN AS A REFERENCE? - 06/06/15 03:11 PM
What is the idea or concept behind a reference? Defined: The sharing of a significant or specified matter or relationship by alluding or connecting with one another. Simply put and used by the average person at large, it is one person referring something in high esteem. A value or want is raised and someone references it...
Has it occurred to you, my dear ActiveRain-ers (rain-ers) that if you have been on this site for any length of time, you not only qualify to give a reference for another but also receive one as well. If one your customers to be needs to verify their gut feeling, ActiveRain appears to be … (35 comments)

posting: WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO BLOG - 05/13/15 07:18 AM
Today, we are asked as well as wanting to know, who is who and what is what. What is it all about and how does that help me? The yellow pages are gone. Reference letters, referrals and sharp marketing and advertising can make something sparkle, glitter and appealing when it is not all that! Cereal packages do that now. 
If you walk down the cereal aisle of any market, you will find SUGAR, main ingredient packaged into many colorful forms, sizes, shapes, characters and colors presented cleverly as cereals. But it is really just sugar presented in many different ways. Same with soft drinks … (6 comments)

posting: BLOGGING LAND? - 05/09/15 01:26 PM
Someone once said to me when the Internet was getting started publicly...where is the Internet? I pause and then say, it is in the next room sitting on my desk is all I could think of. I was referring to my computer which was new as well. But then, the statement sunk in. My computer was one of the entrances to this world, this place of which I could not tell you where it actually is
It's in cyberspace. Okay, I know about space but can you help me with "cyber" please? It's the world of computers, where information is stored called virtual reality. … (4 comments)

For those that are addicted to getting points for whatever reason, they should have a type of icon with your choice of face or emblem that can be clicked on over and over again and after so many clicks, a point is given. The more you click, the more points until you have clicked yourself to exhaustion or
But you see if you are willing to do that, why not take an easier route? How about just composing a post and launching into cyberspace? You get more points for less effort. Another good point maker is the comment … (19 comments)

posting: GENTLE REMINDER TO WATCH WHAT YOU SAY - 03/28/15 05:09 PM
Some Persian fellow who lived at about the year of 1048 had cause to give warning in regards to what people say in print. I like his finesse, genteelness, and word to the wise. Read what follows and see if a butterfly or two doesn't flutter within you. That is all you'll need to know about the "doing" of the subject matter
The moving finger writes: and, having writ...Moves on; nor all thy Piety nor Wit... Shall lure it back to cancel half a line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it...Omar Khayyam.
Way to go O! If he was here … (4 comments)

posting: THESE THREE WOULD LOG-IN DAILY FOR SURE - 01/04/15 06:28 AM
If Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tin Man were here and alive today, they would all have ACTIVERAIN ACCOUNTS. Yes, they would log-in, have profiles, check the feature pages and then OFF to see (?) where they can add all their comments! Their yellow brick road would include their keyboard and mouse to be sure
It may interest you to know that Dorothy has a built-in mouse into her shoes that most people wouldn't know about. She just has to CLICK CLICK CLICK and she is returned to her home page no problem. It helps to … (16 comments)

posting: DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE... DOUBLE YOUR FUN - 12/13/14 07:52 AM
With two posts..two posts... two posts in one. Yes, one click and you get two posts! Now that is value in today's online world of cyberspace and clicking around. The topics were inspired by some features that I read and I will share the effect they had on me using the Richie two-post method
post #1....CHRISTMAS CARDS...etc.
If you go back decades or even centuries when time, paper, ink and postal services were really appreciated, getting a communication or letter was a big deal and occasion. If you received a parcel, bigger still. It was personal and coveted and not only a keep sake … (4 comments)

posting: GIVE THESE MINTS AWAY GENEROUSLY - 11/24/14 07:06 AM
COMM-MINTS...Tasty little mint visits these are. Imagine getting a box of these in the mail? Next time you visit a posting of your liking, leave that original poster (OP) a comm-mint. It can be 1-2 words worth or a one liner or if you have chocolate-giving heart, a paragraph of sharing
I can see if you had to pay for this privilege and how you may be hesitant or slow to respond...maybe even reluctant for your personal considerations but when it costs you nothing and you are already there, why not? Leave the COMM-MINT of your choice in that little box adjacent to your … (5 comments)

posting: GIVE THE GIFT OF A POST SEASON IS HERE - 10/30/14 05:02 PM
It is as simple as the title of this post says. Take a moment to do a post about a peer, friend, place of business, family member or associate and make it personal. Its exactly what the Hallmark card people do. There is something about seeing something in print...isn't there? It makes it extra-special
It doesn't have to grand or deep but instead an acknowledgment from you to them that in your words, what you are saying really amounts to this underlying theme as follows: I am glad we are going through life together. I recognize the value and I … (6 comments)

posting: KERRIE SAYS RELAX 10 IS THE NEW 20 NOW - 10/23/14 07:27 AM
Many are relieved for the news of blogs going BACK DOWN to 10 per week (points wise) from the 20 per week that was allowed. For a while there, it was interesting to see people who live for points and rankings (for whatever reasons) turn it up and toss them out. Quantity versus quality had prevailed
Many refused citing personal and professional reasons for not wanting or being able to rise to this carpel tunnel making challenge (lol) and just did not participate with all their ACTIVERAIN-HEARTS activated. I am reminded that the little things that people like or need … (21 comments)

That's right! After this paragraph, everything in this post will mean the opposite. Your comments must mean the opposite as well. Do not forget this while reading as some words may sting you but not if you remember its the opposite of the word used and not the words. This is all the warning you get...
1. Guys...I sure wish you didn't drop in just now. Let's not do this again
2. This post is too hard to participate in
3. I don't blog for points nor do I like being in the Rain either
4. Google juice will drown you … (41 comments)

posting: YOU HAVE ACTIVATED SELF-DESTRUCT - 10/21/14 07:21 AM
I just lost a post. This is not a complaint nor am I upset because I am taking the obvious LEMON episode and turning into lemonade right now instead of drinking it your reading it. What Happened? Only my fingers know for sure and they are not talking. I was putting together a post, typing and making tracks....
When all of a sudden, my "flash" fingers hit or did something that my mind doesn't know about and not only did the post go, but the whole log-in went bye-bye with it. It moved slow enough when leaving to almost smirk at me as … (9 comments)

posting: HAVE YOU NOTICED THIS IN THE RAIN? - 10/17/14 01:50 PM
No one is going at it with anyone else. No feuds? No tete to tete? No comment to post combat? I know we don't all agree, but have we reached the point where we can share and not take prisoners during the exchange? I haven't seen or heard of anyone declaring war on another here in ActiveRain-land
Am I in a rose garden? Do I have on colored shades? How about I am not frequenting the more colorful neighborhoods here in ActiveRain-land or have I lost touch? I can take it! Please tell me that Rainers have learned... HOW... instead … (73 comments)

posting: BUSINESS CARD SAYS GOOGLE ME? - 10/10/14 10:48 AM
For people who have a web site and who blog, comment and post all over the Internet, chances their name is going to come up if someone does a name search. It is interesting to consider how the Internet is really a type of resume if you will. In addition, an article or posting on a subject matter may turn up too
Being outspoken in person has its limitations and nuances but practicing that in cyberspace, one can do it until they don't want too. In other words, there is no limit to exposing yourself on the Internet in … (8 comments)

The real joy of hosting a contest here in the RAIN is the coming together and the support and sharing that takes place when we do. Throw in some guidelines, some tasty POINTS and or prizes and ACTIVERAIN can turn to ACTIVE-FAME AND ACTIVE-GAIN for anyone. ActiveRainers are a good group of folks and the latest contest proof we have is ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF THE SCRATCH THE ITCH WITH RICH contest
To everyone who entered...YOU WON! Take a moment and enjoy the satisfaction of participating in something worthy. May your tag be your bag...that leads to riches and well-being. Among those that … (53 comments)

posting: I SEE HIS SMOKE AND HE IS FLOORING IT - 09/21/14 09:53 AM
Its Tom Arstingstall General contractor who specializes in Dry Rot and Water Damage "plus" and Rainmaker who is coming up fast behind me. I don't know what he has under the hood of his "smokin bloggin wagon", but whatever it is is pulling serious horsepower. I have to sleep, eat, run my business, perform miscellaneous chores leaving some opportunities to be passed. Tom's blogging GPS must be state of the art
When we all get out on the cyberspace freeway, then, its all good. But that "on ramp" is most competitive. In ActiveRain California, the top ten Rainers … (10 comments)

posting: IS THERE AN ITCH OUTBREAK OVER THERE? - 09/16/14 01:50 PM
People on Twitter and Facebook want to know what is going on over at Trulia and ActiveRain. Is there an "ITCH" epidemic breaking out? Zillow wants to know right now before they write the 3.5 billion dollar check too. LOL...No, we are all getting ready to maximize our Internet presence starting now for later and beyond by copying the past successes of having a tag-line
Where does time go? In cyberspace, no worries! But down here on the earthly plains, the clock is ticking and has ticked for those that are contemplating getting their tag-line game … (2 comments)

posting: THE GREAT POST DEBATE - 09/14/14 11:38 AM
Be mindful of this dynamic. If done properly, it is a learning experience for all involved and the public, once clicked on the post or blog is treated to a lively discussion that dissects the issue every which way so that it can be absorbed and appreciated for what it is. Very rewarding when done properly. Beware of the "dark" dynamic where two people go at it personally, emotionally and off subject
I seen a decent post the other day explaining the inside thinking of an industry and someone responding to the negative or attacking the post point. Yes to it … (4 comments)

posting: THE POWER OF TRANSPARENCY - 09/11/14 12:57 PM
Make no mistake about it. When you are readable, transparent and consistent about it, it leaves everyone better than when you found them for being refreshing and non-threatening. For the practitioner, it promotes a confidence and a feeling of light heart-ed-ness because no additional weight or baggage is at work. What you see is what it is
When we blog, post and comment, we have taken the risk of identifying, stating, sharing and claiming what we understand to be true and where we stand on our understanding. We went first and we are glad to do so. We weren't put here or sent to … (6 comments)
