What A Great Place Active Rain Is!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Get It Done For Me Virtual Services DRE# SL641317

I am very excited about being a part of the Active Rain Community. 

I look forward to many great interactions and relationship building through this online community.

We work very well with referrals and are excited about the possibilities that this platform offers to send referrals back and forth to each other.

Pay it forward is my motto and hope I will be able to impart to many of you some of my knowledge and expertise as well as you to me.

I have been reading some great blogs that are extremely helpful.

It is also nice to find an online community that is not putting down Real Estate Agents and honors how valuable we are in the marketplace.

Everyone! WOW! What a difference a little over a year makes, going from my very first post to the posts I write today! SEE- Anyone can do this if you want to. If you read this first post, what was my intention? To pay it forward, that has never changed! It is still the same!

Look now, I use images, links, fonts, colors, screen casts, etc! I started with 0 points to now over 350,000 points, started with 0 subscribers to over 1070 subscribers!

Pay it forward! If you help enough people get what they want, you will always have what you want! Katerina

Putting this simple and honest post out for everyone to see will inspire newbies to give post-writing a shot.  I know I've been very slow to get started because I thought every post needs to look like the featured posts.  But I'm kicking it in, and having fun taking pictures and telling everyone about my baby blog.

David- SO what do you think? Look at that! I did not even know how to add an image to the post and I did know about spacing because I am a writer since a very young age, but no bolding, italics, etc. No colors, no larger fonts, etc! I started just like any other newbie.

You sure have come a long way from this starting point!  AR really encourages blogging by encouraging the commenting.  That's what makes me stick around too.

Is this our first post on Active Rain?  Its like looking at a piece of history!  I joined in November 2007 and it will be 3 years on 11/26/10.  I have nowhere near your amount of points or posts and it let's me know how much more I could be doing.  Thanks for the inspiration!
