My business has blossomed since joining the Rain. You can find answers to aslmost anything here. Your local market will find you because of your presence on AR. AR pings most of the major search engines.

Thanks for commenting Janice and David - very positive comments about the site!  Sometimes you don't know if sites are worth joining for awhile but this was definitely worth my time and effort!  Thanks again!

Kelly- yes, It's addictive.  But I don't think we have a 12 step group yet.  ;)  Welcome to AR.  As Greg said - I have learned more in my short time at AR than I have in all my CE classes - much of it by accident as I cruise and reag blogs.

Bo, love the comment about no 12-step program....we probably need one! Great to hear that Active Rain is helping in your businesses.  Thanks for such a warm welcome and Cynthia, I will pop over to the newbie group!  I'm not new to the real estate industry but sure am in the tech world!  Thanks for commenting everyone!

Welcome!  I am actually a graduate from Jonesboro, AR and I am from Poplar Bluff, MO.  I went a semester at Harding University in Search and HATED it. 

Anyway, there are tons to learn on here!  If I hear of anyone moving in that direction I will definitely remember you!

Thanks for the welcome Lesley, Doug, Andrea and on the hating Harding Andrea!  Jonesboro is nice and Searcy is too but I completely understand!  If I ever know anyone moving to Poplar Bluff, I will send them your way as well!  Thanks!

Andrea, do you happen to know David or Michele Johnston or Blake Rodgers?  They all graduated at Jonesboro as well.  They are probably alittle older than you are though.  And I missed that you are in Georgia now so forget what I said about Poplar Bluff although I'm sure you could point me in the right direction there as well!
