Nashville, TN Newbie - Jumping in

Real Estate Agent with Reliant Realty ERA Powered

Hello Active Rain Community!  I am new to AR and new to blogging in general so I'm especially grateful to the Newbie's Group for giving me a place to get started.  I have been reading, studying and absorbing a lot of posts from the "old-timers" for the past couple of weeks just to get a feel for what goes on here (mainly so that I don't make a complete fool of myself)!  

I am not a "newbie" to real estate, but I have found that this job involves some sort of learning experience every day and every closing has it's own unique set of challenges (which is precisely why I love my job so much).  So far, everytime I've looked for advice (or just a better perspective) for various situations, I've been able to find exactly what I've needed here.  I am very impressed to say the least!  I respect and appreciate the professionals who have given of their time, talent and experience to help others and admire their generosity. I am looking forward to returning the courtesy on my own blog ... just as soon as I can get past the hurdle of deciding on a subject! 

In the meantime, if there's anything I can do to help with any information you need in or around the Nashville, TN area, just say the word!  I'd love to hear from you.

Welcome Denise!  Like you, I'm not new to Real Estate, but I'm a babe in the woods when it comes to blogging, SEO, and all those other computer words!  But I've learned so much from Active Rain and I know you will too.  I have decided to jump in by focusing on Localism....hopefully that will lead me to posting elsewhere too!  Good luck...I look forward to reading your blogs!

Barbara, Thanks for the welcome! I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. I've been wondering how effective the Localim posts have been for other people.  Thanks for the reinforcement on that.

Hi! Welcome to the site. I recommend that you read, read, read and then comment, comment, comment. There are so many different blogs to read. There are tons of topics out there from real estate, marketing, technology, seo, staging, mortgage, etc. It goes on and on. Find topics you like (in the groups) follow those for a little while, start to find certain writers you like. Comment on their posts. You'll start to get to know people and before you know it... you'll have figured out the benefits of the site. Also reciprocate your comments. Consider posting blogs with content for consumers. Those are included on localism.com. So you could write about your area or about things you know in real estate or related etc. Also check out Resources for the Active Rain Newbie.

Good luck!

Angie - Thank you for your encouragement.  I have been taking your advice and reading, reading, reading! So much so, that I missed replying to a few comments (yours included).  Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, but I really do appreciate your help.  Best wishes to you too.

Hi Neal.  Thanks for the nice comment.  Your post made me realize it's literally been months since I posted anything here and I know I'm missing out on a lot of great benefits by not particpating in this community.  I really need to get on top of that and just make it part of my routine.  Thanks for the reminder!
