Terry- welcome and buckle up you hit it on the head. There is a lot to learn and to me the best way to do it is read as many as you can and comment on those you enjoy and learn from.  When you are ready do the blog adventure

Welcome Terry,  I would recommend you start here everyday, read what everyone is writing about.  Then start to post yourself, write about your area, what you are doing with your days.  Make your content informational, and make people want to come back.  Remember to post to localism when needed and drive traffic to yourself!

Welcome Terry -- looks like you've gotten lots of good advice already.  The Newbie Group is filled with the "How To" posts for Active Rain.  Just set aside some time every day to read, re-read and try your hand at blogging.  I've learned so much here -- I can't imagine not having access to this tool now. 

Oh, did anyone mention the addiction problem . . . to Active Rain?  ;-)

Terry, Welcome aboard. It can be very overwhelming at first. Just take your time and before you know it, you'll be a pro. Most groups have blogs on how things work, so read blogs from some of the long-time members. They've helped me a lot.

Just keep reading and following links. A little overwelming at first, but it gets easier.
