ActiveRain is where you can learn a thing or two just by reading all the comments.

I recently attended a local OPEN HOUSE in CAROLINA SHORES, NORTH CAROLINA.  I brought up the topic of blogging and a few local Realtors began speaking about ActiveRain.
 
Now I must admit I wasn't too surprised to hear that many Realtors like to JUST READ (we all start out that way don't we)  The majority of Realtors in my neck of the woods just don't seem to get the Blogging thing on Active Rain. A few of them admitted they would rather read all the blogs and comments than blog themselves??!!

Hello, seriously, jump on board fellow Realtors and join the FUN ... Nope, they still would rather read than blog... Some actually admitted they felt the same people were always being featured and it was a popularity thing???  They felt the best way for them was to just continue reading???

They wanted to know the benefits of being a RAINMAKER??(which of course I explained) So I am in the investigative mode of my local Realtors, to get some more folks on board and three of my favorite people to link these folks with for learning to blog areAmy Hahn, the serious side of her


AMY HAHN (Localism Queen),

AKA BLIZ





BLIZ (all around know it all)








and Mimi Foster, Topic QueenMIMI(one of the topic Queens)


.... Anyone else think they can help these Realtors find out how to benefit from becoming a Rainmaker????

You picked three of the best ActiveRain has to offer. ANYONE who follows them will definitely learn a thing or two about blogging. Well done Karen!

So I followed Amy's link and wondered, "WHAT?! Who was giving away THOSE kind of points????" and saw that it was from 2009.  Can't imagine that now, huh?  And then I read Bliz's post and wished I had had that kind of information when I started ~ or more importantly, where to FIND that information.  And then I saw all of the potential subjects to blog on, and thought that if a Newbie can FIND this information, they can certainly succeed here in the Rain.  So thank you for putting this out there for the Newbies and the seasoned Veterans.  GREAT information! And thank you.  You have really touched my heart.

Frank & Karen~ I wish I knew the magic formula to introduce more agents to the value of blogging.  I've tried to explain it, but no one seems to get it!  I hoping that once I can make the phone ring with business from my blogging that it will be much easier.
