AR-The Greatest Thing Since Chocolate?

Real Estate Appraiser with Appraisal Express

Active Rain-The Greatest Thing Since Chocolate?  Okay, maybe not chocolate, but it is a wonderful site.  I'm sure those that have been with AR for a while hear this quite often, but I don't think it can be said enough.  I have been with active rain for about a month now, and am so impressed.  I started by just reading a few blogs a day, then trying my hand at blogging, and now it is like an addiction.  I go to bed thinking about AR.  I wake up thinking about AR.  How can I make my blogs better?  Generate more comments?  Generate more traffic to my website?  Get a gold star next to my name?  Who else can I invite to be an addict?  These are the things I think about constantly.  But, by thinking this way, I have generated more traffic to my website!  I have been getting phone calls from people who have looked me up through AR.  I am in the top 5 on the first page of google through 3 different searches.  I'm just excited at what AR has done for me thus far and felt compelled to share!  Thank You AR!

Hi Elizabeth,

I cannot agree with you, I don't think there is anything better than chocolate!   It is my remedy for everything, although I do indulge in very small doses.  AR is great and I, like you, am addicted and I am learning so much.  I just have to set a timer so that I do not neglect my work.

I think about A/R a lot as well. I'm not that hooked on chocolate, but I am hooked on coffee. So my title would be Active Rain - The Greatest Thing Since Coffee?

Hello, Elizabeth!  The word 'chocolate' in your title drew me in.  I have to agree with Cynthia above that nothing is better.  Welcome to AR--it's addictive just like chocolate--if you let it.  Good to meet you!  :)

The thinking about AR all the time will ease up after you've been here for awhile :)

I am also thinking AR all the time. It has to let down at some point.
