Please welcome a new member to Active Rain, Liz Householder. Liz is from SE Connecticut, her website says.
"Living and selling homes in Southeastern Connecticut makes for an interesting business! While my office is near the shore, in East Lyme, CT, I actually do quite a lot of business in surrounding towns like Waterford, Montville, and Salem, to name a few. I specialize in single-family homes and condominiums in New London County, and especially concentrate on country properties."
Householder what a great name for a real estate agent! I have known Liz for a couple of years on e-PROTalk and RealTalk but I never knew Liz was a red head. Or maybe I had visited Liz's website and knew she was one of us (red headed REALTORS®... no Active Rain Group yet... who wants to start it?) ....and forgot. I pictured Liz as a blonde. I love seeing pictures of people on Active Rain.
Liz you are going to love seeing all of the Real Talk / ePROTalk people who are here and connecting with them. In some ways it is like being home because there are some familiar faces.
I spent so much time studying Lenn's websites when she'd write about SEO I felt like I knew Lenn. I knew what Lenn looked like but many of the rest of those RT people were a mystery to me. I had gone to visit Maureen Francis website and her blog but I barely knew her when I invited her to Active Rain. You will see a lot of Maureen, Liz like it or not... Maureen Francis is very involved on Active Rain. (Thanks for all you do MF.) Jim Lee is on ActiveRain being, Jim Lee! Good info on NAR, national trends, JIMs, bisalesuality. Bonnie Erickson is here holding her own in the Minnesota battle (there are points on Active Rain... play the game or ignore the points and have fun on Active Rain.)
Do you know Don Fabrizio-Garcia from RT Liz? Don was usually pretty quiet but shared some great stuff on RealTalk. Don's been a member for awhile but he's just recently gone wild on Active Rain blogging... about green benches mostly. Don is relatively newly licenced in your state, he had sold in California before moving back east.
I have a little photo album here of RT / e-PROTalk members on my profile. Lots of them have joined but some are not active, hopefully in 2007 more will start to participate on Active Rain. My Fairy Blogmother Frances Flynn Thorsen stopped by to plug RT Blogs yesterday but did not sign in to Active Rain... Sally Hardman blogged here recently about her glorious area in Georgia. Laurie Furem blogged on Active Rain in December... I do still read RT sometimes and I saw Laurire was having surgery. Anyone hear how she is? Judith blogged about Denver recently. Speaking of Denver, did you know Kristal Kraft on RT? She was exiting RT as I entered but I recognized her here..kinda... I pictured her different....and don't believe Kristal if she tells your Active Rain points can be used on shoes.... your hopes will be dashed...
Do you remember Ann Cummings from RT / e-PROTalk? Ann is involved in an online book study of Richard Nacht and Paul Chaney's book, Realty Blogging. Great info in their blog entries. Have you read the book Liz? Liz and I "talked" about Richard's company, Blogging Systems their blogs via email the other day. I told her Barry Hurd, Chris Bubny, Paul and Richard of Blogging Systems are all members. Barry is the most involved Active Rainer from their organization. Barry's blog is a great place to start to learn about blogging and writing IMHO. "Barry Hurd is the Director of Business Development for Blogging Systems."
There is an Active Rain newbie group. You may want to check in there, for "Active Rain how to's." Karen Hurst, Blanca (not going to try to do her last name, sorry Blanca) and other Rainers have put a lot of time into helping orient people to Active Rain. I think reading some of that will help you with the how to get around Active Rain.
Liz's Active Rain profile (it's here twice to be sure... once above...) when I invited newbie Mike Bosela recently (Mike did ePRO but did not like RT?... I know Mike from BlogTalk rather than RT / ePROTalk) and wrote a Welcome post for him, I missed putting in Mike's profile and Leanne caught me.. Leanne Paynter is another I don't think I knew from RT or ePROTalk but I met Leanne in BlogTalk. Leanne's Active Rain blog often has great info ...how to's, so it's a good read, Liz.
Anyone want to help me welcome Liz? Old friends? New friends? My apologies if I did not share a link to your profile, or mention you.. if you are someone from Liz's past she can click on your comment and read your profile and reconnect with YOU!
Liz, did you know that Carnac is hanging out in Connecticut now? Anyone have that photo of Carnac?
