ActiveRain is excited to be sponsoring the upcoming 89th edition of the "Carnival of Real Estate!"
What is a Blog Carnival?
Welcome everyone! The Carnival was started by Zillow.com on July 10, 2006 to help bring the real estate blogging community together to share valuable information on trends and news in the industry. It is open to everyone in the real estate industry and we mean everyone! (you can read about how it all got started HERE)
A Blog Carnival is a weekly summary of the best blogging posts that appeared in someone’s blog during the previous week. A different blog hosts the carnival each week, so it brings together the best RE bloggers from around the globe. Blog Carnivals are often referred to as another form of viral marketing because it provides participants another way to increase traffic and gain links to their blog. Learn more about carnivals.
