"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams 

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore.  I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  Be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post and watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Copyright and Real Estate Web Sites, My Experience 
By: Lenn Harley 
"The lesson is clear.  If you didn't create it, write it, photograph it, draw it, have it made for you for a fee, DON'T put it on your web site."  
Note: Earlier in the week I asked about some favorite AR bloggers from the past.  Lenn was mentioned by multiple members, so I thought bringing back one of her old posts would be fun.

Realtor® Safety - No Commission Check Is Worth Jeopardizing Your Life 
By: Debe Maxwell, CRS  
Ok... I'm breaking my own rules to bring forth a previously Featured  post about agent safety.  This is such a vital subject, it can't be emphasized enough!  If you haven't read this post by Debe, please do so.  And, I highly recommend you watch the short video, too.  


Be sure to check out Kathy Streib's What I Learned This Week In The Rain. 

Have an amazing weekend!

Hi Carol, well, there is definitely a bunch I haven't read, but I've also been a bit busier this week than usual, with traveling and all. Got to get caught up. I hate it when I fall behind and find myself having to read at least 3 or 4 blogs from each person. And then there are these goodies! Need more time in the world, or maybe I should stop now and go get mani and pedi. Yup, sounds like a good idea.
