Getting Back into the Saddle

ActiveRain Milestone

I joined ActiveRain in 2007 and found such a wonderful community.  This isn’t a post about real estate, but it is one of many posts you will find about what ActiveRain has meant to Real Estate Agents around the world.  This post is what ActiveRain has meant for me.

First in the realm of business, AR has brought me business.  When I was consistent in posting, I was receiving phone calls from potential clients finding me on ActiveRain.  I even double sided a deal with the seller and the buyer finding me on ActiveRain!  So yes, blogging can be an important part of your business!

Second, I look back and see times of no postson my blog and times with many posts and reflect back on times in my life.  When I joined ActiveRain in 2007, I had come off a very very tough period in my life.  In 2006, my husband and I were blessed with a son who had a fatal birth defect.  He was born to heaven on August 22, 2006.  I became pregnant again shortly after that with twins only to have a miscarriage in February 2007.  We took the news hard, but even harder was finding out in June we were unexpectedly pregnant again and to lose the pregnancy a few short weeks later.  My husband and I did what we had to do and being workaholics, we went right back to work.  I was sitting in a new development open house at the time and with slow traffic, I was able to spend my time delving into this new thing called ActiveRain and commenting and eventually writing a post.

The end of 2007 brought many changes to my business and life.  I decided I was ready to move from my old brokerage and after having had many conversations with Mama Liz and her wonderful husband Boyd, I decided to join AgentOwned.  I was the first AgentOwned Agent in Sumter and it was such a positive change for me.  

As the AgentOwned brokerage expanded, so did my belly.  God had decided to show his plan for my husband and I and bless us with a surprise pregnancy.  Doctor’s orders were work and then home to rest.  And believe me, I was not about to question those orders.  And having a laptop on your pregnant body is not comfortable with restless legs!  So I wasn’t very active with my blogging, but it was always in the back of my mind.  

My husband has taken over the stay at home daddy duties with my daughter, and things have quieted down with helping new agents around the office and to AgentOwned.  I am finding I can use materials on both my website and ActiveRain so the time has come to get back to it.  So here I am breaking 100,000 points and looking forward to what lies ahead!
