Sharon Simms mentioned something in her blog today -- Keeping ActiveRain Blogs. She talked briefly about SnagIt. I just had to expand on what Sharon said because SnagIt is just too useful not to share with my fellow Rainers.SnagIt is the greatest invention since TiVO. I simply couldn't live witho...
Links. If you have a web site, you've probably heard about how important they are. There are reciprocal links, one-way links, internal links, in-line links. There are hyperlinks, hidden links, link targets, good links, bad links, link farms and many more (including the world famous Jeff Link).LIN...
I just spent almost two hours digging for ActiveRain gold. And did I ever hit the jackpot! After reading Matt's blog asking how we cruised the AR blogosphere, it struck me how many people said they looked at featured posts, most commented, and associates blogs.

It was a little over 2 acres, and while it did have some structures, the values was completely in the land. We received several calls on the property, but alas...

The sky is falling!” panic is getting rather old…An article in today’s East Valley Tribune starts off with this little gem… It was no easy summer for home sales. May was the worst May in three year...
90 days ago, D.Challener Roe set out to enlist 2,996 bloggers to each write a tribute to an individual victim of 9/11. With the help of many and God only knows how many hours of dedicated work, he did it. A couple of weeks ago, I just sneaked in on the tail end of "2,996". I was the 2,956th blogg...
