New to ActiveRain and I'm already addicted.....

By
Home Stager with Bella Interiors & Staging, LLC

Not sure exactly how this all works, so I'm flying by the seat of my pants.  Trying to learn everything I can as quickly as possible.  This is my first Blog ever!  Can you believe it?  I can't.  I have joined groups that sound intriguing and read the comments made.  I have invited other colleagues of mine to join because I think this forum is awesome.  Just learned about it and had to get involved. 

I would like to thank everyone that has been so nice to me already.  I appreciate the support and I am honored to be a fellow ActiveRain member.  Enjoy your day everyone!

Jim,

Hi.  You look familiar.  Did we meet possibly at the Remax convention in Orlando a couple of years back?  How do I set you up as an affiliate?  Still learning.....

Debbie  a few years ago yes.  I also write for www.RealtyTimes.comand was active in Mainstreet.  As far as add associate, I copy and paste the agents header into the comment box and save. It is that easy!  Welcome to Active Rain!

Darbi,

Congrats on your first blog ever! It seems like you are on the right track - and hey! 24 comments (25 if you count mine) - not a bad start for a first post!

My advice to you is, set a goal and try to stick (as closely as possible) to it. Obviously there will be days that you can't post - or even have time to read or comment. To keep it from feeling overwhelming, I would try say, a post every other day and 5 comments a day. It gets you online and reading - it gets you in the groove! Maybe also set a time limit for yourself...or you may find yourself staring at the screen cross-eyed at 3 AM trying to read it all! There's so much to read and so much to learn! I'm sure everyone has an opinion about this, and this is just mine! =)

Good luck blogging!
