Weltanschauung - Active Rain Welcomes The Active Participation of All Real Estate Professionals

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Homesale Realty RS334568

Weltanschauung:
The guiding principles and philosophy of an organization; a world view.

I have chosen to share #4: "ActiveRain welcomes the active participation of all real estate professionals, irrespective of their affiliation with industry groups or trade associations. We believe a vibrant and diverse real estate community is essential to maintaining a strong organization."

Active Rain was mentioned in a class I attended in June of 2016. Since I have always enjoyed writing and reading the perspectives of others, I was immediately intrigued.  I posted my first blog on June 26, 2016 and can personally testify to the warm welcome I received.  

I continue to appreciate the diverse perspectives and sincere desire by many to offer insight and opinions as well as share stories from their experience. Continued vibrancy is the attribute of a healthy, thriving community, and is best achieved when the voices within the forum feel 'heard.'  Writing a blog offers the opportunity to let one's voice be spoken and once the comments start to flow, the blogger feels a sense of being 'heard' and furthermore may even get the deeper feeling of being 'understood.'  A blogger is not necessarily looking for mere 'agreement' - no, a writer from the heart is desiring a 'connection' through the threads of the written word.

Good afternoon Maria,

    As much as some seem to fight it, the fact is that without diversity in thought and actions AR would be pretty boring, as would be life.  Mark
