What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain ...March 12- March 18, 2017.


I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, something about Real Estate, about a place or person!  Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

This has to be one of my favorites from Lou. For you climbers out there, be sure to read this.

What a very moving post. And there are many stories such as Thomas' that don't have the same ending.




Kathy GoldmanMarch 14: Kathy Goldman Write Consistently, Right?

Kathy says it all in this post. If you're trying to decide what kind of blogging schedule and plan you need, take a look at this.




marte cliffMarte Cliff Warning-Your participle phrases may be dangling!

Being guilty of this myself, I read this twice and have bookmarked it. If you are prone to dangling things, you might want to head to Marte's post.

Not just for parents of those in the service! What a moving post. And there's a way to support our veterans as well.



michael jacobsMarch 15: Michael Jacobs Making Lemonade on Pi Day and Some Random Thoughts.

I love posts that engage the reader like the random thoughts posts. Go to Michael's post and you'll see.

Meet Norman Neyman. The next time you're ready to throw in the towel, you might find this post inspiring. You also may want to hire his wife!!!

Every one of us could benefit from this. When do you make time for yourself and what you need to do?


athena paquetteMarch 18: Athena Paquette Quote of the Week: "Don't step over dollars to pick up pennies."

Haven't we all been there, done that?!
