How To Create and Maximize Your ActiveRain Blog Post
The AR community has grown and evolved with thousands of new members, millions of posts, some really cool features, and great SEO and consumer traffic. Many of the members who sign up and join ActiveRain start off very excited and ready to Blog, but then find themselves stuck. We have many members who ask What Should I do Next?
Having a profile setup and then just lurking around the community, not knowing where or what to do next, seems to be an age old trend. "What should I Blog about?" "I don't have the time!" "I'm not a writeror blogger!?" and "Why Should I Blog?" are just some of the common questions and concerns I hear time and time again.
It's time to get some answers. It's time to get your "Blog" game on!

There is ton of information here covering a wide variety of topics and discussions.So where do you find out what makes the ActiveRain Blog Post different than any other Network or Blogging platform out there?

Do you have questions like these and are you trying to make cents sense of it all? In just one hour, we're not just going to tell you, we're going to show you. If content really is King, then knowledge about content and "How To" must be Queen!
