Bob Mitchell & Jason Crouch are in Here

By
Real Estate Agent with Morris Williams Realty

I have been reading more lately on Active Rain. I have been amazed at how much banter there is about points, gold stars, signing petitions. I ran across a post by Bob Mitchell about getting featured on Ative Rain.

Many of you know I wear my heart on my sleeve. I have opinions, they are mine. Active Rain is a place that allows opinions. In fact, it was built on that premise.

So, Bob Mitchell has his opinion, I have mine. Sue me. Sue us both. But, I did go read a lot more of Bob Mitchells other posts, and this is a smart guy.  Then, I got an email from someone here on Active Rain, did I go to far?.....So, my concience is starting to tug at me, making  me think I should revisit the post.. Here is my reply

Bob...I got an email stating that maybe my reply to your post was a bit harsh..Looking back at it, I guess someone who doesn't know me could get that impression.

After making the comment, I took it a step further to not only read many of your prievious posts, but to subscribe as well. There is no doubt that manyof the same people get featured, but I have gotten past caring. There was a brief time when I had the time to think about writing posts that would get featured, I reviewed and rewrote, thought about where to place the posts,...didn't work 

I have been featured a hand full of times....I don't think I have an hour between all  my featured posts. One I know took less than 10 minutes,including graphics, about when I bought my GPS. That one got like 80 comments and was featured ..I was floored...Ditto for my other features..I profess to not have a clue as to what will work. I even tried witing a post with Jason Crouch in the title...nope...got me nothing but yawns.

 

But, a few of the posts I did put out got me direct phone calls, turned into deals, and led to the position I have now.  I get links to my website, and got listings from here that turned into deals. I have an appointment next week for a listing that I will share with an associate, because I don't really take residential any more. Unless its the whole subdivision.

 

So, if my comments were a bit harsh, then I am sorry to have offended the sensitive few here that may have recoiled in horror. after reading your personal and business profile, I doubt I made a chink in your armour.   Good job.. Cya

Mitch,

I read his blog and your comment and personally I saw nothing wrong with any of it.  I read these blogs for information, entertainment and to broaden my narrow scope of things. Most blogs consist of primarily one person's opinions and it helps to see and hear  through someone else sometimes.  Doesn't mean everyone has to have the same opinion, how boring would that be.  It's nice that you took the time to clear the air though.
