End of month thoughts

Services for Real Estate Pros

My introspection at the end of this month has indicated that, in ActiveRain, alone, I will have read over 3,000 posts for January - posts with opinions, posts with business information, educational (for me) articles, information on localities that would take me years to visit.

I will have contributed a post a day, entered 200 plus comments and received just under 150 commments on my work in that time - and I appear to be  small fry in the system called ActiveRain.

I tend to stay away from the social blog format as I feel it would make me a skimmer and a user, not giving individuals their due, leading me away from thinking deeply about posts before commenting. When I develop an interest in a particular blog, I like to explore past posts, the body of work, of that author. This seems to apply most to systems that I would like to emulate.

I suppose that the major benefit to me over the last few months has been making dents in my "I don't really know what I don't know" field. I am out of my comfort zone.Progress is in me daily.

For the past decade I have lived by the motto "Dream - Dare - Do", along with the mantra "No limits - No Excuses". ActiveRain certainly supports me in this philosophy, giving me energy to surge on.

Getting out of our comfort zone is very challenging.  I have been sticking my big toe out there to see what I can learn.  At my age, it kinda runs together sometimes and I have to have another run at it.  The blogs that I learn from are bookmarked.  I may have to check it two or three times before it soaks in.  But it keeps the ole brain working.

No limits - no excuses. I am just loving Activerain. I want to thank our peers for the immense resource of knowledge and information that is being shared and exchanged on the daily basis.

Larry, like your comment, "giving me energy to surge on." AR does that for me as well.

Larry ~  I look forward to "visiting" you each day, so please keep on blogging.  I do believe I would be well-advised to adopt your mantra . . .
