Thanks for posting.  I have found upgrading was well worth it.  I keep informed from my fellow agents and form great business contacts.

Just viewed the Orientation Video, 'after' I did my Profile and 2nd Blog - HA!  I know I should have done it first, though am learning so much more now, as I go, since I've 'started'!  Thank you so much for all of your input and knowledge!  I'm already happy and 'Singing in the RAIN'!

I just started in real estate, and one of my tasks on my 2nd day was to start a blog, something I had never done before.  Three weeks ten blogs later, I have finally gotten around.  Your video was great.  Thanks, ActiveRain University!

Although, I got a facebook account about 5 years ago, I rarely logged on.  Probably once a month.   Recently, a realtor convinced me that it could help my real estate business if I like or comment on other people's posts.  So I have been doing that but find it overwhelming because there are so many people posting utter nonsense.  I'm thinking about making my account inactive again just to take a break.
