Thanks AGAIN ActiveRain! Thanks for Steven Graham! Thanks Steven!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

My sincere thanks to ActiveRain for Steven Graham...and his awesome training at ActiveRain University

I listened to the week of training classes when I first joined ActiveRain back in mid September, 2010.  The classes were great...even though I did not have much of a clue what the heck Steven was talking about!

I listened...I learned what I thought was a lot of neat stuff!  I immediately put lots of the cool stuff to work.  BTW - my first post was featured so Steven must have done a great job that week!

Well, after a short few months in ActiveRain....I have learned another important thing.....I Don't Know Enough!

What To Do?  Go back to Steven Graham, of course.  Attended one of his classes yesterday about Blogging.  Guess what?  I was doing some things wrong!  There are things I was doing that I should not be doing!  I need to be doing lots of other stuff!

BOTTOM LINE...I will be going back often to Steven Graham's classes.  I now know enough to know that this is a process and I will continue to go back to ActiveRain University and Steven Graham!  

I learned valuable things yesterday...Which Have Already Been Placed in Motion!

Thanks ActiveRain!  Thanks for Steven Graham!  Thanks, Steven Graham!

Thanks from my Rockwall, Texas home and blog!

Hi Barbara

Absolutely I attended every class for 3 weeks straight, and you would think taking every class 3 times I would have it down, but I dropped in last week and still learned more he has so much info to give out it is impossible to hear it to many times..........Brad

Barbara - I have been back three times as I need to improve. I learn something new each time. I am adding new bits to my blogs all the time.

Barbara - that is so great.  Steve does an amazing job w/ those classes - everyone should attend.  I was meaning to reattend one or two, esp the outside blog stuff because I know I didn't catch everything.  I was hoping to do in Dec but got a bit too busy. Hopefully soon.

Judith, thanks for stopping by with your comment.  I believe that one of the best things we can do to take our blogs to the highest level will be to attend Steven's classes on a regular basis - going back for more!  Good luck!

Hi Frank and Karen!  I see this as a journey - and having to go back to Steven for directions often.  Good luck in your blogging and thank you for the comment.

Brad, good evening!  I have a feeling I will be one of those "3 timers and more".  I intend to take full advantage of the classes.  I am thankful that ActiveRain offers these and that we can attend as often as we desire.

Larry, you too?  Perhaps we will be in the same class one of these days!  There is much to learn and the learning is fun with an instructor like Steven.

Hello Debbie!  The one I attended yesterday was on blogging and I learned several things that I did not know.  Going back to classroom is helpful.  Thanks for taking the time to add your comment.

Melanie, I think we just checked on the University and registered.  Steven does classed each week around mid day in our area.  I took the entire week of classes when I joined and decided to go back for a refresher on the one about blogging.  After doing this, I have decided to do the others again.  Have a great day.

Pat, same here!  These are live classes so they likely change a little each time and I tend to forget what I am not using, so I am planning on going back often.

Mel, good morning.l  Perhaps we will end up in the same classes as i will be back.

Ellie, sometimes it is hard to take the time to go back for refresher classes, but well worth the time.  Havn an awesome day!

Rene, you will love Steven.  After the class on Wednesday, I am left with a couple of questions as it is hard to get it all.  See you in class!
