LOOK OUT...ACTIVE RAIN IS GETTING PERSONAL [Edited]

By
Real Estate Agent with Dockside Realty VA 0225142975

What do you think of the new Active Rain?  As I go from post to post I began to wonder if I was more interested in the post content or to get a peek at the new "look."

Here are some of my favorites (now mind you, I have just begun to scratch the surface so perhaps I have not seen yours at yet or I may have seen it before I thought of this post).

This may be just the inspiration you need to try your hand at customizing your posts.

Please share with us any that that you have run across.  It is very interesting to see people's first attempts at making their posts personal.  It will be equally interesting to see how often some of these are changed over time.Brad Carroll

Kathleen, I have seen many great designs, but am I the only one that sees that the design takes away from the text space width in the blog? Maybe I'm wrong and need to get out my ruler. There I go again doing my own thing. But you know me, I'm always me.

Hi Gary...Thanks for mentioning that.  I'm not sure.  If you find out it does please let us know.  I suppose if it becomes narrower the posts may just get longer??? 

I had looked at yours and noticed you hadn't customized as yet.  Is that why?

We all want you to stay you.

Kathleen

P.S.  I just check are it is narrower but as long as I can still go on and on and on and on, I don't mind.

Thanks for putting together this list - I have to admit, I've been surfing, looking for the re-designs. I love them!

I've already changed mine a few times - they've made it so easy for us!

Hi Deb...Can't wait to see what you write.  It has been fun checking out my Raindrops.  Yours is bubbly like you.   How did you get so tricky with your header?

Cheers,

All of the above.

Here ya go, Kathleen. Just for you. :)  This is a spot on the river near where we camp in the summer.  There's a great trail that runs along the river for about 8/9 miles.  It's one of my favorites for sneaking off with my fly rod for a few hours of fishing.

Kathleen,

Thanks for putting these together, I just clicked through them all. I notice that Jo Anne and I have the same taste!! Also, Lenn Harleys is definitely her, all business. Your's looks good too, kind of surreal:) It's interesting to see what people choose for themselves. I absolutely love Monika's lavender fields!!
