I have been on Activerain since 2007 and am just now starting to find my voice here becoming comfortable posting and even commenting. This to me is quite an achievement for I am always careful (o.k...maybe even a little too careful) of what message(s) I am putting forward for they will ALWAYS BE OUT THERE.
For me it is easier to write a blog than to make comments. When I am writing, the words just come but when I am making comments I have to put much more conscious thought into my words. I do not want to be repetitive of what others have already said, I do not want to unintentionally insult someone, I want to be thoughtful of others, I want my comment to be a "worthy comment" (Not a quick one liner).
I am primarily here for the Google Juice and internet exposure and I still have much to learn regarding this. I am also here to interact with others in the real estate industry, build relationships, make new connections and to also keep updated and informed on what is constantly evolving in the real estate world. I have learned much here and have found there is no better place to do all this than here at Activerain....oh, and I don't really care about the points.
I am not looking for a platform here to voice or push my opinions or for debates, to me this will just add more stress and discord to my world (I want to enjoy it here). Believe me, in this business there is already more than enough stress and discord out there, so I choose not to engage and keep this at a minimum. Do I have my opinions?...absolutely but I also know that what I prefer, what I believe, how I choose to run my business is not always going to gel well with others and that's ok, I just choose not to debate it here.
I pop onto Activerain everyday and always learn something new. I swoop in and zip over many, many blogs and often may not make a comment but am pushing myself to do better at this. I enjoy the many different topics people are posting, the humor I see in others, the willingness to help and to guide, I find many creative ideas and thoughts at Activerain....this is also why I am here.
So...if I'm a stealth blogger I don't mean to be but please know I am pushing myself now to COME OUT OF THE CLOUDS!
