Activerain is a good place to learn so much regarding our business.  We have a community of folks from around the country that can help you with the basic facts of our industry.

Don’t be hesitant about writing your first post in the Rain. Jump Right In! The water is fine in the Rain. The most important thing is letting the others members know that you’re on board, and ready to begin your blogging adventure.


Active Rain ContestsRoy Kelly, our top male point contributor in the Rain, recently mentioned that he noticed that many first timers have yet to write their first post in the Rain. I would encourage each and every new member, and even those Rainers, who have been missing in Action for a while to come on back and jump right in with a post in January. You might even want to consider participating in the top contests for the month, Lynn’s Jump Start Contest for 2017, or Debbie’s Ringing and Singing in the Rain for 2017.   It’s a great way to get started and to rack up some quick points to help build that online presence. Let's not forget Praful's January Contest for Your Prediction for 2017. Just set aside one or two hours per day to devote to posting, and commenting in the Rain. I know your time will be well spent.


It doesn’t matter if you are an early riser and a night owl. Taking the time to play in the Rain has some huge benefits, as you can see that many are returning to our Active Rain Community this year. I would encourage all new members and even those who have been away from all the action for some time, to get involved in our community and share your experiences, and knowledge. After all, that’s one of the reasons that makes our community so GREAT.


Writing that first post can be as simple as just introducing yourself to our community. I guarantee you’ll get some comments and responses for other members. Share a testimony about a recent or past experience with a customer or client. Write about your favorite hobby or sports. This time of the year most are talking about all the NFL playoff picture that leads to the Super Bowl. I know I for one am cheering on my Dallas Cowboys. But, getting back to blogging, why not just write something about your area, a neighborhood, or new developments. No one expects you to be a blogging PRO to start. It takes time to find our niche and your voice in your posts.


You can’t reach your blogging goal in one day. Blogging is not a sprint or dash, but it’s a marathon. So, get started and keep on posting. Your blog will stay up until you take it down. Blogging in my opinion is the cheapest investment of your time that will give you some great rewards at the finish line. Stop by and visit my old group in the Rain, Introducing Newbies in the Rain, and check out some tips for members that are still relevant today. Don’t be afraid to pick up the phone or send an email to ask any Ambassador or seasoned Active Rain Members your questions. We are here to help guide you through the trenches. One day you’ll do the same for others.

I was a newbie not too long ago and I spent a lot of time lurking before writing my first blog. I recommend others just dive right in and learn as they go!
