Returning to the Rain After a Hiatus!

 Hiatus

WHAT? You've been away from the Rain? What on earth could have happened? Well my friends, let me tell you - life has happened. And yes, you can return to the Rain after a hiatus!

 

I will share that although I have been absent, I have missed the relationships that I have built here in the Rain. For those of you who are new to ActiveRain, one of the most important lessons here is understanding how many amazing people are here. It's true! If you take some time to interact with the other members, you will reap the additional benefit of the Rain and that is the people.

 

For me, I began blogging on this site back in 2010.  Little did I know then the beautiful friendships that have been formed. This is truly an added bonus that was not expected. The best thing too is that whenever I have had to take time away from my beloved blogging, I am always welcomed back with open arms.

 

So if you have also needed some time away due to life events, business, etc., just know that it is never too late to get back on the blogging bus. When you do jump back on, you will be greeted by some old friends and most likely, many new ones as well. So buckle up and no matter what, keep on coming back to the Rain.

 

I can't wait to catch you all up on the real estate world in my neck of the woods. Great things are happening! So nice to see you all!

Hi Paula

Welcome back! So nice to see you again. I know there must have been a lot to do with the new brokerage!

And you are so right about the people here. Those who have been here a while know this, the new members will learn quickly.

I can so relate! I've been absent a long while too, and still haven't quite made it back. But that is certainly my intention. Good job in just 'going for it!'!!

I took a break last year, but have really been enjoying the camaraderie and exchanging of information. I find that I have a edge that many people in my heck of the woods don't have because of sharing that goes on in the rain.
