What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain  May 20 to May 26, 2018.


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!


debbie gartnerMay 20: Debbie Gartner 10 Things I did that doubled my blog's traffic.

Debbie always graciously shares what she has learned about SEO and marketing. These tips are ones we should all know! And if you're not following her, now would be a good time to do so.


beth atalayMay 21: Beth Atalay    Can We Play Nice in the Real Estate Sandbox?

Why do some people make it so hard?  This isn’t a game but rather someone’s life and their home!


grant greeneGrant Greene Home Ownership-It's In Our American DNA.

And you think Real Estate is local! This is really interesting.



maria sapioMay 22: Maria Sapio What is Pre-Listing? Maria Sapio, Realtor, Carlisle PA

I'm not sure if agents stress this enough. Sellers would be better off starting early in their preparation to sell and the first thing to do is contact their local agent.



mike cooperMay 23: Mike Cooper It's That Time Again. My Annual Tips for Graduates. Good Job Folks!

If you've not read this, I highly recommend it. It wouldn't hurt to pass it on to any new graduates or just- getting- started- in-business people you know.

gary thomasGary Thomas The Projects of Key West 2018

Gary does an excellent job of chronicling real estate in Key West. If you want a very interesting tour of Before and After of some homes in Key West, hop over to his post.


khash saghafiMay 24: Khash Saghafi The story of the bamboo tree.

Here's something to ponder this Sunday. What do you think?




denise lonesMay 25: Denise Lones It's Time to Take a Distraction Diet.

I'll bet many of us waste a lot of time doing anything and everything but what we need to be doing because we are distracted by others or by things.



gabe sandersMay 26: Gabe Sanders ActiveRain Contests

Gabe has an excellent idea for an ActiveRain contest but don't wait for it. Read his post and consider writing some of these kinds of posts for more business.




Don't forget to check out Carol Williams Second Chance Saturday posts as well. I always find a post or two that I missed.


And you can find previous What I Learned at ActiveRain here.


Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!
