I'm back for more......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Grand Property Virtual Tours

 Well, business had picked up a little, and something had to give.  I had to admit I had become a little too addicted to Active Rain and it was taking up too much time.  I was also dwelling on some of the negative encounters here, and not focusing on the positive. I had forgotton why I came in the first place.  To meet friends, vent, learn, and hopefully increase my business.  After a period of withdrawal, I was back to a normal life again. 

But then it happened.  I checked my google rankings.  To my complete surprise, I was back to page 2.  I was pretty shocked that there would be such a change in a short period of time. 

So, here I am again.  Back for more and looking forward to talking to some old friends and meeting some new.  Meeting, learning, sharing.  Now I remember!  I missed you guys........

Hello Peggy, that's interesting. I have had to take a week off a couple of times over the last few months and I really missed blogging. I do agree that sometimes I can feel the need to leave it be and get into the "doing" part of things. Some days when I have a lot of work....it feels good to say....I won't blog today or I'll leave off commenting. I am still very addicted to AR! Glad you back!

Peggy - Yeah - it does not take long to drop. I know the addiction feeling. I have to budget my time and stick to it! Good luck!

Hi Peggy,

So if I understand you right, you were page 1 on google then after taking some time off you fell to page 2.  I have noticed site rankings can change very fast, and sometimes drastically.

I think the key is if you run across a negative post, just move on to the next one and find the positive posts and read only those. I suggest you stay within the groups POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul and Nothing but the Positive if you stay within these two groups you will never get that feeling again!

Successful people are happy people and don't find a need to speak negatively of others.  When I receive unwarranted or overzealous criticism I consider the source and keep moving forward.  Hope you can do the same.

Hey Peggy, where the heck are you?  You haven't posted for a long time.  Since you are the one that started me off here in the first place, all that I have to say is "practice what you preach"!
