Jenna, welcome to the world of AR blogging. Asking the members through your first post is a good step in knowing this community. That’s right! Don’t be afraid to ask us because I can assure you, Rainers are the most friendly and helpful people on the net.

Jenna as a newbie I would suggest you take advantage of every ARU class available.  And along the journey begin meeting people in the rain by reading their posts and leaving meaningful comments.  Get the conversations started and the rest will be a delight ride in the rain.....Welcome!

Jenna - welcome to AR.  My favorite is not the tools because any blog platform can give you that.  No, for me and many others it is the community and the network.  Make sure you take all of the classes.  You will learn how to blog, who to use it with social media, and SEO.

Welcome to ActiveRain! My favorite thing is how much I have learned about the real estate business from reading posts, commenting and interacting with others. Another favorite is that I've grown and become a better blogger over the years. Patience and time required.

Jenna, Have you written your first post?  If not, here is a title suggestion.  "I Googled Myyself And Here Is What I Found".   Next year on April first write a new post entitled, "After A Year On Active Rain, I Googled Myself and Here Is What I Found. 

If you will pay a little bit of attention, you will not believe how much you can learn.  There is one thing for certain.  You need prospects to sell real estate to.  If your phone is not ringing, you better be dialing it.  Active Rain will teach you how to make the phone ring.

Hi Jenna - Donna Foerster's blog mentioned you, so I came over to say "hi" and "welcome!"

I love the idea Ron, #62, shared with you; and Tammy, #63, is spot on with what I like best about being on Active Rain. I've sent and received referrals from Active Rain members, my posts get out to the public (I have Rainmaker status) and I've received calls from them, and my blogging is a great listing tool.

Enjoy your journey - hope to be reading more from you.
