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

Active Rain Bow

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.

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 Quebec, where Active Rain has a total of 181 AR members as of this morning.  I would say that Marti Garaughty Marti Garaughty #1 and Tanya Nouwens Tanya Nouwens #2 could have some competition coming up behind them.  So, say hello to:

Emma CoatesEmma Coates with Stage Set Match in Hudson QC.

Daniel GermainDaniel Germain with Realty Solutions Express, Inc. in Lachenaie, QC.

Alex VittiAlex Vitti with Multi Prets Mortgage Broker Montreal in Montreal, QC.

Robert GoldenbergRobert Goldenberg with Realtor 24 in Dollard des Ormeaux, QC.

John NickersonJohn Nickerson with La Capitale Est de Montreal in Montreal, QC.

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

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.

Gold For You

If you are looking for a very simple way to move up in your standings for the state that you live in, here are three small suggestions:

I applaud you in your attempt to increase the popularity of AR in Quebec but you do realize that the language of AR is not conducive to business in Quebec?  You might want to begin your quest in an english speaking province.  In Quebec you are not even allowed to answer your phone with "Hello" !

Richard,

That beautiful white stuff stayed to the south of us.  I am not so sure we even had one flake fall here.  My son in Chattanooga is not happy tho.

LOL at the gold eggs. Did you spray paint those? They're cool. You wouldn't believe how much stuff I have spray painted gold. LOL And I look forward to learning lots of good stuff from Quebec. LOVE the precedence you set for those who would be featured in this post! Bravo!

Lisa,

Two things come into play with your question:

  1. I tried spray painting eggs once before and you wouldn't believe the outcome and
  2. You are giving me a whole lot of credit for taking a photo that good......

Thanks for stopping in for a visit it is always good to hear from ya.
