What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-December 23 to December 29, 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!


liz and bill spearDecember 23: Liz and Bill Spear And Not a Single Picture Was Taken

This has my name written all over it because Larry is always telling me to stop taking pictures and enjoy the moment. Good reminder, Bill.


sheri sperryDecember 24: Sheri Sperry Cold Moon Setting on Thunder Mountain

I admire our wonderful photographers here in the community and Sheri and her husband Rick are among them. Take a look.


margaret romeDecember 25: Margaret Rome My Favorite Greeting

This has to be one of the most meaningful greetings I've read. And as I mentioned to Margaret...it's better than the lengthy "look at everything we did this past year" letters.


will hammDecember 26: Will Hamm It is all about the right attitude.

His post is short and to the point and so spot on! Try this as you begin your new year.


carol williamsDecember 27: Carol Williams    Word for the Year 2019: Education

What a wonderful concept of choosing a word each year to give your focus to!!! What would your word be?


ron and alexandra seigelRon and Alexandra Seigel "Out of the Blue" Keeping the Channels of Inspiration Open

What a wonderful post to take us into the New Year. I'm working on it.


mike cooperDecember 28: Mike Cooper It doesn't get any better than this

Consider what Mike has to say when you're making your marketing plans for 2019! How can you find a cost effective way to get your name out to the community as the local expert??


gabe sandersDecember 29: Gabe Sanders Some Inspiration

With a New Year about to begin, this is a wonderful quote and I love what Gabe had to say. Let's all take a few extra minutes to read this and absorb what Gabe has to say.



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

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

I'm sorry, Kathy, here I said I would come back here after reading your suggestions and like last week I think I forgot and almost forgot today to come back. But I am on my way to meet Hella Rothwell at the airport, or rather she is coming to meet me, LOL. So I have an excuse, but at least I made it back here to say thank you before I left. That's progress.
