What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-October 21 to October 27, 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 or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

You know what I really enjoy about your weekly roundup posts, Kathy? I mean, apart from the fact I can get a lot of reading done by clicking back and forth and pick up new tips is that your choices for posts make me want to explore other thought processes. So sometimes I get really good ideas for my own blogs by taking an idea in another direction.

Morning Kathy.

So sad, I only have one for this past week.  I barely have time to read the blogs for the people I follow, much less reading any others.
