blogging: Does God use the Internet? - 02/20/11 01:40 PM
Does God use the Internet?
I have reason to believe he does.
I have been connected with some of the most wonderful people via my website and my blog! Many remain my good friends, and several have had a significant impact on my life and vice versa.
I have to wonder if God is behind some of these meetings. You may think I am NUTS but I once heard the coincidence is God's way of stay anonymous.
Through the past few years of blogging here on Active Rain I have had the pleasure of meeting clients who become friends. My website … (9 comments)

blogging: "I'm too old to blog" he said...? - 02/02/10 11:09 AM
I invited an agent from another part of the country to join us here on Active Rain and enjoy the professional camaraderie.
When I didn't get an accepted invitation from him, I gave him a call.
"I'm too old to blog " he said. Now mind you, he is just a few years older than me!
I could not believe my ears! Too old to blog? No such thing! Can you breathe? If you have a pulse- you can blog!
I told him it would help his Internet presence and he should at least check it out. He replied " I … (8 comments)

blogging: Have we lost the Human Touch to the almighty Internet? - 12/05/09 02:11 AM
Just a short while ago in history, my grandparents gathered around the radio in the evening for the only outside source of piped in entertainment.
Then came my folks (now 79 and 83) who were introduced to television. I remember when cartoons were only on Saturday morning- and shows like the Wizard of Oz and Rudolf the rednosed reindeer were only available to see once a year, and therefore were literally magic.
Now we are inundated 24/7 with so much media, we don't even notice when all of our family members are on their laptops, listening to their ipods, texting, all … (5 comments)

blogging: Too busy to BLOG? - 07/21/09 05:12 PM
I have been so incredibly busy I have not had much time to BLOG! (work and kids!)
I have always loved writing, ever since I can recall. I have been a songwriter since I was a teenager.
I am not one to journal, but I do like to BLOG! Go figure.
I know many are saying the market is stale. I did have a difficult winter, we had record snowfalls, and many were affected by that and the economy. However, then came Spring...and it has been crazy busy!
I don't say this to brag, but to encourage the reader that the … (1 comments)

blogging: No cyber generation gap here! - 06/13/09 02:46 PM
Remeber the phrase "generation gap" ?
I think it started when the Beatles came over from London. Their long hair was offensive to the hard working generation of the great depression. This created a chasm between adults and teenagers. Ok truth be told, I have no idea when it started, that was just a guess.
But now at age 50, I am proud to say that I talk to my kids daily on facebook. I talk to my friends kids too and my 20 something clients as well. I blog, I text, I twit, I facebook- therefore I am.
Actually we used … (4 comments)
