New to blogging

Hello to all. I am new to blogging as this is my first post. Enjoy reading your posts and have learned a lot already. The real estate market at Fort Myers Beach is in the same condition as all of yours but we remain ever hopeful that things will turn around soon.

Debbie and Rick, welcome to Active Rain.  Blogging is just about the best thing you can do for a long term approach to building a business.  I didn't know what blogging was a year ago!

Thank You for your warm welcome. This site is pretty intimidating. I have a lot to learn to get around in here. My right hand is already tired from clicking and scrolling and I've had to switch my mouse to my left hand.

Debbie & Rick-

Welcome......don't know if you got there yet, but on the top of your tool-bar is a search button.  anything you want to know is there.  Just type in the subject you're interested in and a list of the posts will appear.  There are some good ones on how to post, etc etc......

Set yourself some boundaries for this as it really can consume your time :)

Debbie and Rick,

Welcome to Active Rain. This site consists of a whole lot of people feeling the same way as you do. You will notice that the same people show up almost daily with great blogs. While we all aspire to be like them, not all of us are prolific writers, and not all of us have the time. Active Rain is different in that it has managed to be both a professional and personal networking site. If you read others blogs and comment on them, some ideas will start forming and you will start blogging. Don't be upset if, at first, you do not get a lot of comments. A lot of people only comment on the same people each day and do not venture out, but after awhile, if you keep at it, you will make friends, get referrals, and best of all (to me, anyway) hear from some of your clients.

My most fun times are when one of my clients "quotes" me to me!  If you want, you can join the Active Rain Newbie Group where a lot of people have contributed their views and some have come up with guidelines and tips for blogging. Whatever you do, enjoy it:)

Joey, Thanks for your words of encouragement. I agree AR is a powerful tool. I have already learned a great deal here and implementing a lot of new things, but Rome wasn't built in a day. Debbie
