 There are times you get a simple idea jot it down and when you go to write your daily blog this idea becomes your topic.

Over the past five weeks, I’ve enjoyed the camaraderie and bit of controversy on the Q&A, a subject not about RE.

Choosing not to publicly participate, I did call Marie Story 

 

Seeing so much engagement was fun to watch. Reminded me of the “old” ActiveRain when a hijacked post received 200 comments.

 

I guess  Marie's question could have been "How to stay in shape for Realtors?"

Poof, the controversy would have been gone.

 

But my little post did not work.

My title was wrong. I wasn’t really asking how things were going.

It was just supposed to be funny and it was not!

The answers to my tongue in cheek question were serious.

Like telling a joke that goes over like a lead balloon.

My blog just did not work. 

NEXT!

Marie Story I have been following your " serious diet members" and you have quite a group going. If you had just changed the title as I mentioned...no problems. :) 

Lets talk soon.

Kathy Streib Always love seeing you. Those old hijacking days were really off the charts... Our group is way too serious now. That may be why we have lost a lot of those old members. I do believe you can relate almost any daily topic back to real estate. Even if it is a great sense of humor that allows us to what we do!

Hi Margaret - thanks for bringing back the days of hijacked posts. I had a few myself, with lots of controversy.  They were some good times!

I so understand.  The same comment I made on another post would work here.  Sometimes we get started and the intent simply gets hijacked by me, the writer!  Not the reader.  Either way, it happens!

Ah....this post took me on a walk down memory lane to the early days of Active Rain.   I remember the hijacked posts.   But, I'm glad all those requests for meme posts (that basically have you introduce yourself to the community per the the request of another member are gone.)     I thought about those this morning when reading about one of the October contests.   

You have so many posts that do amazing, so I'm sorry that you are human and one just didn't work right. lol
