My first blog post 01/27/2009

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

It was January 27, 2009 when I made my first blog post.  Reading Mike Cooper's first post today I decided to look mine up.  My how things have changed.  While I've learned a lot about blogs this one was off the cuff post. Hope you enjoy



It all began several years ago when my youngest son wanted something called a computer and wanted to get on something called the internet.  Being the kind of I know everything type of person I am I thought (yea this is just one of those fad things that will pass in a couple of months).  Well goes to show you what I know. 

Now they have this thing called ActiveRain and Facebook. I've been invited by some people at my office to join and truly been thinking about it.  It wasn't until what I would call my closest friend at the office invited me to join that I finally decided to take the leap.  I realize there are things out in the world other than my opinion and I understand the horse is on the way out, ole Ned is being replaced by something called a horseless carriage.  Anyway, the purpose of this is to notify my friend I'm on board and trying to catch up to the 21st, Century.

When I bought my first computer it was because a colleague had bought a computer just before that - he bought an IBM and I bought a Commodore - Like you I wasn't sure that this computer thing was going to last - LOL

James, you did a good job on round one. Things sure do progress if you stick with it. I'd love to see what other Rainers did on their first blog.

Good morning, James Dray from snowy Erie, PA where we got seven feet of snow in seven days.  Fortunately, I can communicate via AR and the internet. Stay warm.
