Seaching Through Active Rain files

While I'm quite aware that many people in this profession are here temporarily, I would have presumed that those who were active and writing in Active Rain would have been real, legit, a few steps above.

Twice in the past week, I'm come to AR to search keywods, and from that, find a resource or two whom I could reach out to.  I've been shocked in that many, the majority of people I found, are no longer here.  Not a post since 2009 or 2010, the links to their own site get me a 411 error or an offer to purchase the domain.

Evidently, it's not just someone who posts a few times (or, posts a few "commercials"), but rather, those who are real are those who post repeatedly, with longevity. Surely there's a lesson here.

Oh my -- I know there are some who have moved on, but most of the time I find lots of folks who still have a lot of great contributions to AR.  Hope you find some good resources.

Claude:  There are some fantastic "regulars" who contribute valuable information with their posts...and they've been around since the inception.  I'm a relative newbie but have "come to believe" that the more time one spends here, the more beneficial it is to one's biz.  Come back often....and post some stuff!

Only once did I find an email that did not work. I see so many great articles every day and I think the majority of us work hard and stay active.

It seems clear to the 4 of you....while some may have left, there are certainly many more who are still here, contributing every day.

Claude, Hope you'll hang around and become one of us that has been here forever, plugging away day after day.. :) :) 

Joking aside, it does not feel like "plugging" I love blogging on AR.. it's good for my business and I would presume if someone is not here any longer , that they are not in the real estate business any longer either.

Judi, there's a similar consistency. If they came to AR and didn't keep on plugging, then perhaps that's why they've moved on from the business as well.  While I'm certain there are many people who simply moved on, I do prefer to read comments from those who stay and contribute and contribute and contribute.
