31 Days of December Challenge- Dec 14 - questions beget more questions

Real Estate Agent

December 14:

There was more Active Rain than Real Estate business today, and that's OK.

Today I was honored with my first feature on AR. Very special and encouraging. I'm really enjoying this Blogging. I am getting more Blogging ideas than I have time for in a day. And such great ideas and inspiration from everyone kind enough to take the time to comment and advise me.

I want to share even more about my hometown of Walnut Creek, CA too. Stay tuned!!!

Over the past 2 weeks, I've sent out questions and many have sent back answers. Now it seems the more I learn the more questions surface.

I just recently was notified that someone in AR had added me as an Associate. I have seen this button but couldn't figure out how to fill out the info on the next screen. I don't understand what it means or what it's purpose is.

I would like to understand Associates better.

And 2 more questions:

1. Is there a "reply" button when someone sends you a message within AR?

2. Is there some sort of Address Book to help keep track of the AR members I'd like to follow or contact?

Vickie and Praful: I see. Thanks for the clue. I now am subscribing to blogs. I still don't understand "Associates" and their purpose in AR.

Jim and Linda: ... and it came out of nowhere.
