debb janes: Tuesday Travelogue-October 7th - 10/06/14 01:40 PM
Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our fourteenth  week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:
 
" to enjoy the ride"
"take a trip without even leaving the farm"
"expand your horizons"
"see through someone else's eyes"
 and hopefully much more!
*I realized that after compiling these, there seems to be a theme of inspiration, hope it does that for you!*
This was too good to pass up, even … (25 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Writer's Block? Get Unstuck
 
On one of my other blogsites, my original Fishhawk Lake blogsite; I recently had a comment that went like this:
First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you
do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
He went on:
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to … (26 comments)

debb janes: Fishhawk Lake- MeetUp in Camas Washington! What FUN! - 08/12/14 12:22 PM
Fishhawk Lake-MeetUp! What FUN! 
Tuesday, 8.12.14
Yesterday morning started with a horrific thunderstorm and 171 strikes of lightning and a power outtage all in the Birkenfeld area (my home at Fishhawk Lake). But, do you think that deterred me from heading to Camas, WA about an hour and a half away for our MeetUp of ActiveRain folk? NO WAY! I was only about 10 minutes late and beyond excited to be there. Not only was I going to get to see my dear friend, Debb Janes,

but I finally got to see one of my Virtual Pals and Tuesday Travelogue contributors, … (60 comments)

debb janes: Reaching My Goal to Become an ActiveRain Blogger - 03/13/13 04:05 AM
 
An ARM Across America-Reaching My Goal
 
I was going through old documents and came across this blogpost I wrote way back when I started on ActiveRain. Sometimes it’s nice to read your “old stuff” to renew the feeling of why you became a member of ActiveRain in the first place!
 
 
 
#15 on my goal list for 2011: 
 
 
“Get on Active Rain blog”
 
 
By becoming an ARM, ActiveRain Member, I ended up reaching across America and had other ARMs (Awesome Rain Members) reach back!
(I was into acronyms, what can I … (17 comments)

Christmas Goodies from ActiveRain Friends!
 
 
 
I feel like a blessed friend. I’ve received some surprises in the mail from three ActiveRain friends.

 
 
 
The first: Debb Janes, who sent me handmade and personalized salt-dough ornaments!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
I placed them right next to each of our dogs, Takoda, and Kasa. Now my tree is complete!

debb janes: What’s better than longtail words? Longtail friendships! - 10/11/12 11:51 PM
 
   What’s better than longtail words?  Longtail friendships!
 
 
 
If you’re into SEO (search engine optimization), then you understand what a longtail key word/phrase is. It’s actually a specific phrase that someone will put in a Google search and find you (hopefully).
  
 Okay, now…for the explanation of the OTHER PHRASE….I have been talking with my good friend, Alexandra Seigel a lot lately. With her help, along with Ron Seigel who are luxury branding experts,they have put me on the fast track for marketing a luxury property that is a new lakefront listing, 9837 Beach Drive Birkenfeld Oregon 97016—my own home! Two other influential people—also … (26 comments)

From Fishhawk Lake: The Three Amigas Travel Log  
I’m just going to share one day in our “Retreat at Fishhawk Lake” with Debb Janes, Mel Peterson and me.
Since the weather was inclement, hiking, and lots of boatrides were out of the question. What’s a girl (or three) to do?  Why, eating and shopping are the answer!
 
We drove to Cannon Beach Oregon, one of my all-time favorite getaways, just about an hour from Fishhawk Lake--a great place to take visitors for a day trip when you own property here. Since breakfast had been rather slim, we decided to … (18 comments)

debb janes: Floor Time at the Office--I'll Bet Yours Isn't Like THIS! - 06/11/12 01:44 PM
After a wild week last week with visits from my dear ActiveRain friends, Debb Janes and Mel Peterson, (their recent blogs,mine to come soon) the very day that they left my husband brought home our newest “addition”. Kasa Jenna Boxman is our new Golden Retriever, eight weeks old today. Today I took her and her mentor, our 3-year-old Golden, Takoda (Mr. “T”) to the office with me for some “floor time”. This video shows how they did as Greeters for Vernonia Realty.

 
 
 
We ended up heading to the vet’s office an hour and a half away from Vernonia, … (34 comments)

debb janes: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Fresh Water Fish - 04/30/12 01:17 AM
Being motivated by some of my videoblogging buddies on ActiveRain (Debb Janes, Richard Yates, and Michael Thornton just to name three), I decided one evening to capture footage while watching our African Cichlids (freshwater fish from Lake Malawi in Africa, the third largest lake there) in our 110 gallon freshwater tank. Since I work mostly from home as my base, and have many clients meet me here, it’s always fun to turn on the lights of the tank, especially if I know kids are coming. Inevitably, people are immediately drawn to it as they head past the entry.
 

 
There is … (15 comments)

debb janes: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-March Came in Like a Lion! - 03/01/12 07:17 AM
March came in like a lion today at Fishhawk Lake.

 
 
 
It started yesterday at Fishhawk Lake and I had our driveway all shoveled off and lo and behold, this early AM brought me another white gift. Thanks, Mother Nature! 
I again tackled our sloped stamped concrete driveway. I would NEVER suggest someone have this kind of driveway at Fishhawk Lake!  Not only do you fall down because it gets slippery, but when the weather gets bad, you need to park your vehicle somewhere FLAT and with gravel, because you could ruin this beautiful driveway. It's gorgeous in the summer and … (19 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-- Sacks and the City-Goodwill Shopping Portland Oregon--A Real FIND!
After driving into town from Fishhawk Lake to meet other ActiveRain members for a soiree at 50Plates in the Pearl District, a few of us decided that we needed to go shopping before we all headed our different directions home.
 
Melinda Peterson, principal broker located in Grants Pass (and my friend!)

 had been told about the Goodwill in downtown Portland located on SW 10th and Taylor. Her friend said that it was quite upscale and so Debb Janes, broker out of Camas, WA (also my friend)
