Wyoming, Are YOU on a quest to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Get Recognized?

Wyoming, Are YOU on a quest to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?  Get Recognized? 

This post is a result of two posts by my friend Richard Weisser down in Georgia.  The first post was "How do you expect to get drenched in the rain if you don't even want to get your feet wet?" dated 5/21/09 in which he offers 6 suggestions to those of us here in Active Rain.  In addition he also offers his personal guarantee "So, for those of you that want to succeed at blogging, I offer you this challenge. Before you throw in the towel, write at least one hundred quality posts before you make your value assessment. It takes that long to develop the correct skills and disciplines and also to create a body of content large enough to have a significant SEO impact on your business.  Now that is some guarantee wouldn't you say?  Richard then follows that post with another post titled "Achieving national celebrity status as a result of ActiveRain blogging becomes a reality! (of sorts)" where he talks about a recent interview with Realtor Magazine on line where he was interviewed about blogging for business.  So, IMHO, Richard is not only a celeb but one that knows where of he speaks.

Active Rain Bow

With the numerous posts talking to newbie's here in Active Rain on how to be a success in their blogging venture to improve their visibility to the public I am setting out on a quest.  I am not going to suggest things to newbie's or those that are less active on AR; I am on a search for some of these folks for introduction to our AR family.  Here is my 3 step plan:

  1. Go on a state by state search and post between 5 and 7 people each Saturday
  2. Then you the MEMBERSHIP will be able to see and encourage them by responding to their most recent post
  3. A NEW qualification, the post must be done since January of this year.

The end result will be, hopefully, an increase in activity with more members becoming visible.  Now there is a really BIG problem with this plan.  I will not be able, my rule, to suggest those that have not done a post and posted their picture to their profile.  You see there won't be any secret agents, lenders, stagers, inspectors, etc. shown.  Sorry, if you want to be considered I need to see who you are, sorta like your picture on your business card.

Today I am looking at the state of Wyoming, where Active Rain has a total of 144 AR members as of this morning.  I would say that Dan Callahan Dan Callahan #1 and Tim Bradley Tim Bradley #2 could have some competition coming up behind them.  So, say hello to:

Dick CurrahDick Currah with Cornerstone Realty Group in Riverton, WY.

Mack MendenhallMack Mendenhall with Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates in Jackson Hole, WY.

Sandi ShearerSandi Shearer with Prudential Brokerage West, Inc. in Cody, WY.

Robert SmithRobert Smith with RE/MAX Bighorn Properties in Sheridan, WY.

Katie ColbertKatie Colbert with Contour Investment Properties in Jackson, WY.

Be looking for your state coming soon to a post near you.  Next I will be off to some of the Canadian Provinces.

Please stop by and encourage these guys and gals and let's see if we can improve some of the participation.  Thanks for stopping in.

Hi Don!  I can't believe you've breezed through all 50 states!  I'm looking forward to the Provinces as there are some awesome agents there too!  Thanks for introducing us to some amazing bloggers--this was such an awesome project.

Have a wonderful Wednesday...

Good afternoon Debe,

I was quite the project but at the same time very enjoyable meeting new members.  I too look forward to going to the Provinces of Canada.  CYA there soon.

Sounds great!  Hey, I gave your name to someone who phoned me from St. Charles today!  She would not give me her name but, I had mentioned you on a Trulia question/answer and she phoned me to get your name.  Hope you get a call from a new client in a day or so!

Have a fabulous Friday...

Don, now this is a challenge.  I'll have to study this before I put it to work.  It just might keep me busy the rest of the year.
