Good evening Sandra. Blogging is kinda like riding a bicycle. Once you get the hang of it, there is no stopping you...

Hi Sandra and welcome to Active Rain!  You'll learn so much, I promise!  I would suggest getting your profile complete, asap.  I never realized how important it was until I had a few calls from potential clients because of my profile :)  That can be your money maker :)  

Best of luck and I look forward to reading your blog!

Sandra- everyone above had great words of advice!  Add you photo and complete your profile.  Then, if you haven't already, read the Community Guidelines  and Getting Started.  It's a great way to get your feet wet.  Next- read, comment and blog!  You'll learn not only about business, but also about SEO, blogging and other tools that will help you.  But most importantly, you'll gain many new friends here that you can "see" every day.

Best of luck!

I am new to the real estate profession, but I am encouraged by the spirit of giving by all at ActiveRain. A good friend and mentor recommended the site, and she was SO right!

I am SO proud of you, Sandra.  There's your pic!  Now, finish your profile and just start blogging--you can't break it.  Maybe start with a re-blog of an article that you really liked.

The more you read and learn, the more natural it will feel.  Then you will feel more a part of the active rain community.  There is never a time that I log on and do not learn something important for my business.   Like you were a part of this---and excelled---YOU CAN DO IT!

(Remember this Building--You were AWESOME when you were here. In fact, you don't know how to be anything but EXCELLENT!.  You can't help it.  It iS WHO you are!)

Bar none, Active Rain has had the most impact on my success in Real Estate.  Dig in---Write, learn, share.  You will always get back ten-fold more than you give!
