Showcase Your State/Province - An AR Challenge

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

Every other year, my dad's side of the family chooses a spot to have our family reunion.  We've been to Alaska, North Carolina, Lake Tahoe and many other beautiful spots.  This year my aunt choose Utah.  Now I must admit, I had no desire to visit Utah but after driving through this incredibly beautiful state I left with a new found love.  Gorgeous green mountains with valleys of beautifully manicured ranches.  Horses, sheep and cows grazing as the sun sets behind the cliffs.  Lakes so clean and warm you never want to get out of them.  Had I never visited, I'd never of known.

So what's so special about your state or province?  What sort of beauty does your slice of the world hold?  Here's a challenge to show us in one picture.

Challenge Guidelines
Begins October 1st and runs through October 27th

No minimum word count

You're in Texas, maybe it's a picture of an armadillo.  Or you're in Florida and the City Walk is what makes your state shine.  It doesn't need to be anything in particular, just a beautiful picture of what makes your area awesome.

I enjoyed this endeavor.  I have enjoyed reading several other posts, and look forward to reading the others.  Reading web posts about Tennessee, its parks, its history, its commerce and economic impact, and its import in the music industry.

Thank you for making it fun and interesting.  Thanks to all the AR family for sharing.  I have been struck by how much more enjoyment there is in getting to know fellow REALTORS® rather than criticising and creating gossip.  If we could bottle this co-operative spirit and each pour one bottle into the Potomac River (up stream of Washington D.C.), perhaps we could move our Nation forward.

God Bless the USA.

Here is my contest entry. It was nice reminiscing about what I love about Vermont to write this post.

I just went back to edit - the hyper link does not seem to be working so you might need to copy and paste it.

Shucks, missed the deadline but 50% of our blog posts are beat the drum for the area, state because the outside buyer does not parachute out into the wild blue yonder directly over the property listings in my market until I turn the search light on. Weed, feed, stuff the blog post conveyor belt connected to the promotion howitzer ray gun to broadcast the word. The word is beauty. Said so many ways with images, themes on all the platforms. Including video. I know this is to get you in the habit, groove of not just sticks and bricks or self branding blogging. To reach for other flavors, colors in the hunt and peck. Great contest.
