Well, the first month of 2008 is over and what do you have to show for it? Apparently quite a lot.
The Active Rain Block Party group is filling up with success stories. So, on the eve of Super Bowl weekend, while you're out stocking up on six-packs, Doritos, and seven layer dip, here are some of the biggest success stories from January 2008 right here on Active Rain.
If you missed any of these, they are all worth a good read. Reading other people's blogs about their success is a great way to get yourself fired up for the remaining 11 months of the year. Active Rain works. It really does. Read On!
If you haven't yet joined the Active Rain Block Party group, what are you waiting for?
Here's the group's mission statement:
This is a place to celebrate success! More and more members are having success with blogging, getting more clients, more referrals, and becoming better professionals. Share your success stories with the Active Rain community whether they involve your business, your life, or your blogging efforts. We want to hear these positive success stories. It's a party celebration at Active Rain Block Party and you can be sure that nobody will be raining on your parade here!
JANUARY SUPER SUCCESS STORIES:
MARGARET WODA is a proud Grandmother of not one, but two new Grandbabies. Margaret started off the year with this exciting news. No, admittedly, Active Rain had nothing to do with this success story, but Margaret kindly shared her personal life success story with all of us in the Rain.
JEFF KESSLER loves Active Rain and he should. While many are happy to pick up the occasional client or referral, Jeff actually got 2 NEW CLIENTS IN ONE DAY! Congratulations Jeff.
FAINA SECHZER, a Princeton New Jersey REALTOR wrote about her experience meeting other Active Rain bloggers at the Inman Connect Conference in NYC during the second week of January. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Faina and many others who attended this event. Finally meeting a large group of the people we interact with almost daily is a big part of Active Rain success.
FRAN GATTI's Active Rain blogging led to a mainstream media crossover when her local newspaper contacted her for an interview for a market forecast. Our blogs are reaching over to other media outlets.
LISA HEINDEL decided to push her blog out to her e-mail contact list and sphere of influence creating for herself her best blogging day ever. Read this wonderful post and follow her great and simple advice (like I did) and have yourself a great blogging day.
(If you don't see Lisa around in the next few days, just remember that after the Super Bowl festivities, this New Orleans REALTOR will be enjoying the Mardi Gras madness!)
NORMA TOERING was so excited by her first business from Active Rain that she awarded herself a shining trophy. Read about it in this cute post.
JASON CROUCH, prolific blogger and all around nice guy, is doing something right. He's making friends, getting referrals, and cashing checks. Learn how this Austin, Texas Broker gets it done.
ROB BLAKE makes it to a major national newspaper. I'm telling you, the newspaper reporters and editors are scanning the blogs and reading Active Rain. You might be next.
SALLY CHEESEMAN writes excitedly about this Active Rain get-together. Living on an island can get lonely sometimes, but the Active Rain network affords for some online socializing. Sally & Randy Prothero host a big Active Rain shindig for lots of Active Rain bloggers. See details and pictures in Sally's heartfelt post.
DAN FORBES writes a self-explanatory post. Business success is where it's at. Real Rainers are having REAL success here on Active Rain.
ENJOY THE SUPER BOWL!
