ActiveRain Offline from 10-10:30pm Pacific tonight, April 26th

Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain

ActiveRain will be down for a half hour tonight from 10 until 10:30pm Pacific.  We are fixing bugs and updating the back end to make ActiveRain shine!  In order to accomplish this update, it does require us to be offline for a bit.


Never wanting to leave you stranded without your beloved AR, I've come up with a few ideas to help pass the time:

Make a list of 10 blog topic ideas for future use                                                                             

Clean out the fridge

Create a new real estate board on Pinterest

Grab a glass of vino or tea and cuddle up on your favorite overstuffed chair

Upload some photos to iPiccy and make a collage for your next blog post

Head over to Facebook and vote for your favorite homepage pics to appear on

Give yourself a manicure (yes guys, you can do this too)

Back up your files

Water your plants

Research your neighborhood for a new business to highlight in your next hyperlocal post

Take a bubble bath

Read your kids a story, Shel Silverstein anyone?

Dance around your living room to your favorite 80's hits


Yes, I'm aware this outage will start at 1am for you east coasters but come on, we know you don't sleep!!  Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we continue to make AR the very best!

A 1:00 AM EST, blogging will not be on my mind. As a matter of fact, I expect my mind to be completely shut down.

LOL, I learned about a new app today that will actually LOCK you out of your computer for a set period of time - so you can do those other things you need to. Hey, you're just helping us :)

I could be wrong, but I'm thinking comment email notifications may not be online this morning.  Time for the rubber mallet adjustment :)

My appreciated, these things to do while waiting..   Over the past 7 years I've actually been pretty creative. But the list is running a little thin.  I was about to double back but now have a new list..
