Posts a few years back on Active Rain's real estate blogging platform would stay on the front page for a while without being a gold star, blue ribbon creation.Why? Sheer numbers of local real estate industry related bloggers one reason. Do the math. If there are 40,000 Active Rain bloggers and knowing not are all Little Red Hen blog a days, your post flare stayed overhead longer. Casting a light for more than a blip, speck of time front line exposure.
But as we approach 200,000 Active Rain bloggers and more and more folks learn the power of blogging daily, your spotlight when you hit submit on a new post is very short lived. Heck, I have gone back to a blog post just out of the oven to add a link or image and within seconds, you are four pages deep. Loosing altitude like a four engine bomber out of gas or leaving the formation from flak damage. Had a heck of a time to find it on the roster and wondered for a minute, did it go through and get posted after all doubt creeps in.
Everyone has their hand up, is beating the blog drum on the six lane Active Rain highway these days.
Still wished we had a daily poll up in the right hand corner though for a quick let's see what today's one liner answer topic is. Told a good idea and programmers will be getting back to develop that suggestion but never happened.That one line special of the day zinger to stay around aday before quickly being squeaky wheeled in to the bowels of the Active Rain blogging basement. To be tucked away, shrink wrapped and catalogued, numbered. To know what the majority of AR bloggers feel on a myriad of subjects, not just a handful is powerful. It would guide our purchasing, time allotment, the way we run our own local real estate operation.
