There's one clear disadvantage, though, and that's the ever-growing number of emails glutting our in-boxes! We all spend hours each week writing emails, and our recipients spend even more time reading and responding to them.

Imagine this scenario: You're at lunch with friends, and someone starts talking about the fantastic response they got from their blog last week – they've already received two referrals from Active Rain and a couple of leads from Trulia.
