Just a quick comment to say thanks for continuing to run these classes and make the content easy to find for those who cannot attend the live session.  Very helpful!

I care about you and your transaction.

I really loved the class.  Your voice for one hour is not as bad as people are telling you :)


Where can I get the slides?

Nevermind, I have had coffee now .... I see it all ....

On another note, I wrote a blog (Appraisals for Realtors in Northern Virginia) following these rules yesterday, and started out unfindable .... Then I went to and put it in there (and then went and had dinner) and came back and I was on page 3.  Now I'm on page 2 .... So it seems to be working.

Never before had I appreciated the true implications of the phrase "teaching an old dog new tricks." and how accurately it applies to me. These videos are fantastic, and open up a whole new world for those of us that are not so conversant/comfortable with the workings of this new social media. I feel so old when I consider the amount that I have to learn in order to truly get the best results from my blogs but Bob will be my guide. Fantastic presentation and visual demonstrations that I will watch a few times in order to ensure that it all sinks in. Thanks Active Rain.

So grateful this recording of Boot Camp One - Getting your Blogs to Rank in the Search Engines - is still working. Definitely need a refresher course. Realize it is on You Tube, but it is so handy to have right on the Active Rain site.
