Good morning from South Florida, Hobe Sound exactly.

Thanks to Kevin Tolbert of Keller Williams and  Short Sales in Port St Lucie for encouraging me to write a blog. Joined 2 years ago, but always too busy???

So I look forward to your encouragement, input and suggestions.

Who should I follow? What is my next step? What is interesting to readers of blogs? How do you network through blogging?

Have so much to learn. . .look forward to the challange.

Kevin Tolbert encouraged me to do Craigslist and it has been amazing. . .have 167 new leads in 5 weeks who signed up on eEdge. . .which in itself is amazing.

Technology is so fabulous. . .since becoming a Realtor 33 years ago. . .everything has changed and we love it.

The opportunities are amazing because of Technology and the Internet.

So a big "Thank you" to Kevin Tolbert!

Later today will blog about our past. . .  Again Thank You for any help you send our way!

Hi Jane, I am similar also - a NEWBIE Active Rainer.  30 years serving the people of Hawaii and 2 years at Active Rain and month two enrolled as a RAINMAKER.  You will have a LOT to write about, once those creative juices are flowing.

Good morning Jane and welcome to the Rain!  As far as who to follow, most look for a couple of different categories:  writers with similar philosophies and writings that teach/entertain us.  Look for groups that interest you and join them.  Also, in the disclaimer at the bottom of this page, see the "blogs" link?  If you click that, it'll take you to a list of the top 99 most subscribed to bloggers.  Not all are active, but if you go through them, you'll get a good handle on what makes bloggers popular.

Good Morning, Jane,

Welcome.  I'm a relative newbie myself and part of the Keller Williams family.  Active Rain is the first place I go every morning to check out the blogs.  They always give me inspiration and information for the day.  And I love to add to the points!

Jane,

Thanks so much for the warm words and WELCOME to Active Rain. 

The first suggestion I will share is LINKS LINKS LINKS.  For example turn my name into Kevin B Tolbert, PA.  The SEO engines will be a churning the more links you offer. 

If you set up communities on your home page of E Edge, then create a link to it for HOBE SOUND.

For Short Sales of Port Saint Lucie, here is a link you can substitute.

Remember, the secret to SEO is the more clicking you can encourage them to do, the better it moves you up the rankings.

I will be around to help,  And you know how to reach me.

Thanks so much and God Bless.
