One of the reasons I like visiting ActiveRain is for the variety of posts and comments. When you take a moment to consider that people all over the United States and Canada are commenting and that it is within a certain realm of mutual interest, well you have nothing less than a sweet online treat.
HOSTS AND POSTS
I like reading the different posts and have grown to like many of their authors too. I never know what mood or focus I may have until I log-in and begin the viewing and reviewing process. I then gravitate toward my interests. I am not disappointed either
Educational posts: Here you have more data and knowledge being shared than on any Real Estate exam plus more practical too. People on the front lines and in the business telling it like it is. Can't get any fresher than that
Fun posts: To me , this provides a rest stop, a slight allowable distraction for those that are too serious. It is a good balance and is necessary to break up the sometimes heavy subject matters
Rant post: I like it when someone gets something off their chest as opposed to keeping it inside. Let it rip and more often than not, they are not alone in their sharing either..risky, but rewarding

Uplifting posts: These type of posts do more good than we know. The contents keep working and have legs. Encouragement to be better or have heart while acting out our daily agendas are welcomed
Informative posts: Announcing an event, activity or a result from one to another interested party has value. It is a good mix to include. Being informed raises the bar...
Teaching post: Here, thoughtful pros share some of their moves when it comes to their specialties and the rest of us benefit from it. This is like a form of tithing or giving...
Local posts: This remains one of my favorites as it allows us into the heart of an area and the host of the post is our personal guide. It is like a living encyclopedia and valuable to those involved.
IT GETS EVEN BETTER TOO
There are many more categories and ideas for posts all of them good. One of the best things to come out of a post is the following which is up there with rating the experience literally. THE COMMENT SECTION
THE COMMENT OR COMMENTING
Here, people at random get to reply, share, agree, praise, disagree and compliment or enhance the post making it have more depth and meaning. Furthermore, the connection of many coming together from the result of one person posting is very satisfying indeed for all.
