Why Not? Seems to be an appropriate enough question.

The question of course is referencing Active Rain & I guess blogging in general. I always said I would try anything, (almost anything), once. So here it is, my opening post as a "Newbie" which made me feel a little uneasy at fist thought, before it hit me that everyone has had an initial post!

I stumbled across Active Rain days ago and have been completely engulfed in the many blogs, ideas, thoughts & opinions people have about my (our) industry. Within 30 minutes I found myself uncontrollably posting comments either disagreeing or supporting someone's view on a certain subject. I believe I am not one who's opinions can be easily changed or molded, and realized recently I am not one to try to change anyone's opinion either. The more I read, the closer I get to my understanding of AR and what I intend to use it as. It seems to be a great source of information for consumers & Realtors/associates, as well as a great referral network. As hard as I will try not to, I am certain sooner or later a blog of mine will consist of a debatable subject offending one person or another, unintentionally. Or, as I've noticed, be an infamous Venting blog about absolutely nothing important, so my apologies ahead of time.

I look forward to many words shared with all of you!

Thank You,

JC Wood

Good Morning JC-

Welcome to The Newbie Group and ActiveRain - good luck with your new blog.

Don't be shy - shoot for those 'debateable subjects' that's where the fun comes in!

Marc - Thanks for warm welcoming, don't think it will be long before a debatable post arises from me.

Karen - Thanks you as well. The picture was actually done by taking my business photo and using a cartoon creater program to turn it into what you see. It works really well with faxes. It is sort of a way to brand your face on all of your paperwork!

Nick - Yah, it seems I pop up everywhere, see you in real world, talk to you in the virtual.
