Do you sell apple dumplings?

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

A few days ago I received a contact message via my Active Rain blog. I am always excited to see those in my inbox! Sometimes people request more information about a listing or neighborhood or are looking for a Silver Spring, MD area REALTOR® to help them buy or sell. But it's not always about Real Estate, sometimes people are asking me for directions or about a local event because they stumbled upon one of my Localism posts. That's just fine, too, because helping people is what I do.

Kupcakes & CompanyThe contact message I just recently received, however, left me puzzled. The sender wanted to know if I sell apple dumplings. Houses, yes! Apple dumplings? No, I'm sorry, I do not. And since I am more comfortable with a paint brush in my hand than a spatula, I have to admit, I don't even know how to make those.

I don't recall ever blogging about apple dumplings. I have, however, blogged about a bakery in Elkridge, MD - Kupcakes & Company - which has the most delicious cupcakes, about the Harvest Bread Company in Columbia, MD as well as a few local coffee shops.

Perhaps she stumbled upon one of those blog posts while searching for a bakery in Howard County that sells apple dumplings.

While I couldn't help her out, I sure hope she found someone who could.

It had to be, I just can't come up with another explanation. On the bright side, my post was found and it must have been good for the reader to think the business is me.

Andrea, that's the caveat to our localism posts.  People contact us for all sorts of information except real estate.  I don't mind helping out when I can.

The post about the bakery had to be it. I still get calls for kids looking for jobs at Pet Co!

I have spent a lot of hours trying to find answers for people who call or email those crazy questions.  In the end, they will remember I went out of my way to help them.

That bakery post got you that contact. I've done posts about a local pizza place, and I've gotten calls where someone wants to order a pizza. So we are being seen out there. LOL. Maybe not the way we want to, but we are out there.

Andrea, I got a chuckle when I read your post. I have received calls for directions to places that I wrote about.

I don't mind helping either Silvia and feel bad when I don't have an answer.

That's my guess, too, Sussie.

That's great Tammy. I didn't get a response to my questions thus I wasn't able to help out more.

Yes, we are "out there" Debbie.

Thank you very much Lanre! I love seeing the "contact me" emails in my inbox.

Good Gita! I'm happy to know that my posts are being found.

It's happened Ron and I know there will be more.

It was a new one for me, too, Lisa! Too bad I wasn't able to assist though.
