I've been away from posting on Active Rain for eleven months. So long, that every link in my profile was wrong. So long that my avatar was outdated. So long, that I forgot how to post here. But the truth is, I was never really here, even when I was here. I think it's kind of funny that the folks here at Active Rain gave me this badge. I guess it's time to start living up to it.
A Brief Introduction
I've been blogging in the real estate industry since January of 2005. I created lenderama, Denver Modern, Lucid Ninja, and at least a dozen blogs that failed. Over the years, I've contributed to the Inman blog, The Real Estate Tomato, Realty Blogging, and most importantly The Real Estate Weenie. I currently write for REALTOR Magazine's Speaking of Real Estate Blog. I'm also the host of REBarCamp.com, the online home to a grassroots real estate focused unconference.
Now, I'm the Manager of Social Media for the National Association of REALTORS. I'm helping the association to communicate more effectively on social media platforms like twitter and facebook. But with so many REALTORs here on Active Rain, it's high time that I start participating in the one social network, dedicated to our members. So here I am.
Connect With Me
I'm on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more. More importantly, I really want to connect with you face to face. I'll be in San Francisco the first week of August for RE BarCamp SF and Inman Connect. If you see me, come say hi. I'm also doing a webinar for REALTOR Magazine with Doug Divitri and Mariana Wagner for agents just getting into social media. If you're new to the game, I hope to see you there.
Can I Get Your Advice?
Okay, so back to my early point of never really connecting here. I tried a few times, but never really had to much success. So let me put it to you. What would you like from me? How can I best contribute to this community? I'm all ears.
