The Active Rain Network

Services for Real Estate Pros with ACCURATE REALTY GROUP

As I head out to Arizona this morning, I ponder the effects of missing out on my daily correspondence in Active Rain. 


While I will achieve my goal of submitting a new post each day for the September Localism Challenge, I am going to be dedicating this week to family I've missed in the greater Phoenix area.

Use the DRAFT function. I never miss a beat even on vacation. It's saved my long pauses from vacation, or even life busy-ness.

Have a good trip. When I visit my family in India I do not check out Active Rain for a few weeks . I am glad you will have time for the daily posts.

Judi, love that photo. David and I just got through watching Avatar again....can't get enough of that Movie. We are planning a 2 day trip here over the weekend to get some photo shoots in and a bit of R&R! I'll be away from the computer and while I will miss will also be good to take a break. Vacations and breaks are always good and when you return, you will be eager to return. Have a nice vacation!

Hi Judi -

I hope you enjoy a great time with your family and enjoy the beautiful weather of Phoenix.  You're right when we begin these 30 day contest they seem to always be in the back of ones mind.  We're almost at the end of September and then we can sigh a sigh of relief.  Enjoy - Enjoy and we'll see you next week in the Rain.

Best regards from the Q

 Hope your mom's doing better and enjoy those grandbabies. It should be a fun break for you,

I'm leavimg the 28th and I've got 3 days of locals I need to post to Draft before I leave - pressure! :) But, I too won't be commenting during that time either.

 We all need to take time for family.  Enjoy yourself Judi!

That scene from Avatar has correlations with the way we network on AR.  Have a good visit with your family.

Hi Judi, hope you get to have some fun while you are away.  I am considering using Loreena's suggestion of using the Draft function.  I missed seeing the post about the Septmeber contest, so I guess I'll have to wait until the next one.
