Second Chance Saturday: Week 1

Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.

"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."

-Carol Williams

There are always so many great posts on ActiveRain, it is impossible to feature all of those who are worthy.  It's kind of like a crap shoot.  I'm hoping to give a little extra Google juice to those who are worthy of a Second Chance to be recognized for their valuable content.  

So here goes... our First Second Chance Saturday blog post list:

Hardwood Flooring Brands I Recommend by Debbie Gartner 
As far as I am concerned, every post by Debbie is worth reading!

Prospective Sellers Want You To Blog by Ronald Gombach
Want to know what to put in a neighborhood blog?  If you follow the "Lower Makefield Neighborhoods" link in this post, you'll find a very robust example of a neighborhood blog.  If you take the time, this site might give you some ideas about structuring a specialized local content blog of your own.
