I wish I'd had Connie Harvey when I was just beginning at ActiveRain.  Be sure to read her weekly highlight of Newbie First Posts and then go to their posts to welcome them to ActiveRain.  Who knows.... that one comment you make may just be the encouragement they need to continue writing here.

My Favorite Newbie First Posts! January 2014 Last Week


All this cold weather must be keeping the newbies huddled by their computers. There were many newbie's first post to wade through this week!


We're surprised that with all the white winter weather we're not Brandi Stevensseeing a lot of posts Snow? Vacant Home? Who's responsible? about this issue! Leave it to Brandi Stevens, a new blogger to discuss what to do. At first we thought the picture wasn't loading correctly until we took another look!



Lesley Moll

Lesley Moll's first post is on retiring. That's right! The Lone Ranger Realtor Retires is her way of teaching those close to retirement ways to continue earning income by passing on their business to an ambitious hard working younger agent. Very few Realtors have a clear exit plan. This is a must read for someone in that position.


Sean McGeehan has 4 Reasons to consider Refinancing your Sean McGeehanMortgage. They're each very clear and well written.This is a smart idea for many people. Whether they are having trouble making the payments or just want to save some money.


Jennifer RouxJennifer Roux has 10 tips for First time Homebuyers. What we like about this list is that the first 7 items are all about getting prepared to be able to buy. No mention of looking at homes until all the basics have been covered.



We love reading posts by excited bloggers. When someone

Tiffany Bacon

introduces you to their area, as Tiffany Bacon does, you know exactly Why they Love Northern Nevada, or wherever else they may live! Between the Nature and the things to do, we just want to go there!


So there you have it. Our favorite first posts for this last week of January! Keep warm while you read these!
