I really enjoyed the class. Very informative!! Thanks Bob!! I am new to Active Rain, I was very impressed with the content provided. I posted the first three sentences then received an email giving me a "great job", but also said to add "some value, opinion, or personality". So I have decided to add more. I am not a writer and I feel that blogging has changed who we are as agents. Obviously giving us a forum to showcase our expertise, but also making it more challenging to keep up. My challenge is writing the blog, coming up with enough content to write 200-500 words. After seeing some of the examples and going through the program I realized I need to step up my game. I would love some feedback on what others are doing to become better writers and get good content.
