Mystrious Disappearance

Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

I had a friend of mine from Active Rain contact me the other day asking me why I have not been present here in the Rain. Well, that is the 64 cent question and to find the answers to that and some other questions, you will need to understand what my new focus is.

I am still writing mortgages when necessary and I am still in the Real Estate Industry and will probably be until the day that I die. I am still writing articles like The mystery of gaining and sustaining blog traffic or Renting to Own: Buyer and Seller Perspectives. These are articles that would help most of my readers out.

For the people that read more into it than it is, I am not leaving Active Rain at this time. The network that we have know and grown to love is still a valuable commodity to me and I will remain until that time has passed and not a moment sooner.

Danny, Sometimes our focus has to change.  Sometimes we re-focus back on  something... only you know what you want and need to be doing.

Thanks for continuing to write great articles Danny! Glad you have not left Active Rain. Hope you are doing well with your new endeavors.

Please remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

Things happen, focuses change. The important thing is that you are looking out for your clients and yourself. It seems that you are doing that. Therefore, keep up the good work!

Danny , so we should call off the blood hounds that were sent out to search for you? Good see a new post, even if it was just to hoist a signal flag. Steve

Nice websites Danny.  I've given some thought lately to offering some website assistance outside of our real estate website.  ~ Joe :)

Somehow I don't quite follow -- 33 posts in March 2009 means ... you've disappeared?

Maybe so, relative to February.

Looks like you are prolific with the posts.

All for now -- I've got lots of reading to catch up.

Judi, that we do.

Michael, if I find then, I will send them.

Scott, so true.

Steve, yes, please call them off. I can hear them howling in the background now.

Bob, it is definitely business.

Joe, sweet.

Andrew, it is easy to follow. 33 post through the 27th of March to be exact. Since that date; 1. That is a 10 day layoff for a blogger that blogs as much as I normally do.

Glad to know you're still around, Danny.  It's funny how we all become "friends" to each other, even though we've never met.

Patsy, I have a ton of friends that I have never met. I think that I need to start doing a tour of the nation.
