NEWBIE NEWBIE FIND A NEWBIE on ActiveRain Atlanta Metro ODAT Realty CDPE Advanced Buy Lease Sell Buckhead Atlanta GA

Remember when you first started and ActiveRain seemed so overwhelming- the technology, the writing, the groups, the idea of friends all over the country - not nominal “friends” but forming true and respectful friendships with folks you never met?

Being welcomed by a member of ActiveRain goes a long way for someone just starting out.  How to get started?  How do you find a newcomer?
 

One way is to go to the ROSTER - in the ABOUT section which is at the bottom of every AR page.  You may select there by date and choose someone.

In 2006, Karen Hurst started a group called ACTIVERAIN NEWBIES. The group has over 12,000 subscribers and 79,000 posts!!!  The guidelines for the group state: Do whatever you want in this group.  Introduce yourself, ask questions. Go to ACTIVERAINMANUAL.COM for all your questions! Remember to come back here after you "graduate" and help others. Active Rain is all about helping others! Good Luck!

Other members feature blogs about NEWBIES from time to time.  Charles Buell from Seattle recently posted a blog addressed to newcomers that became a Featured Blog with suggestions for success in the “Rain”.

[By] asking our seasoned bloggers or any Active Rain member ... to seek out our AR Newbies.”  Then there are some new members who post their own first blog there!   

So, take your own path or follow what others have done! Your interaction will become a lifelong memory for the person to whom you say “WELCOME to AR”!
Have a happy day -

Lynn,  It really is important to support the newbies here in the Rain. I've gone back and found newbies but my process was difficult.  Thanks for mentioning the Roster.  It will make it very easy to support the newbies.  I also suggested this post. 


Suggested!
