My second day and counting...

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate

Well, today is the second day of my Active Rain memebership. I posted my first blog yesterday and I got 3 replys! How exciting is that?

flowerI'm starting my Saturday morning here, in Ellicott City, Maryland on Floor Duty (or as our manager likes to call it, Opportunity Time). I wasn't really scheduled for FD/OT but, when I came in this morning no one was at our front desk so, I sat down and am ready for all those walk-ins and sales calls that will surely come!

I remember my first blog. I had more guts on my first date. But just like anything in life, it gets easier once you keep going. Congrats on your first blog and remember, dont stop because you are getting too busy.

Donna, welcome to AR!  Your blog was FEATURED on the front page so you'll get lots of comments now.  What a great way to start with a BANG!  

I am surprised that your office has "floor time" as it is very rare with real estate offices nowadays.... Enjoy.

Welcome to Activerain!  A few other bloggers I recommend you read include Richard Yates (video bloggin), Alan May, Victoria Stankard (knows SEO), and Tammy Emineth.  You should subscribe to a handful of bloggers, read what they have to say, and get a feel for the format of your blog, content, topics that resonate with readers, etc.
