10 year ActiveRain Anniversary

Recently, another AR member, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin, posted about her 3,686 days together post.  It's great to walk down memory lane here in the Rain, remembering all of the wonderful friends we've made along the way of writing countless blog posts.  She got me to thinking about my very first post.  It wasn't hard to find, clicking on the date category in my list of blog posts. 

 

Low and behold, my 10 year anniversary is 02/18/19!  Ten years ago I started a rambling post about being Green.  I combined 3 different topics in one post and it's a wonder anyone read it. 

 

There were some brave souls who read and commented, not that they undertsood what my post meant or where I was going with it.  It began by describing the housing market as Green but Down!  I digress. 

 

The market was dropping and I had switched my niche that year to energy efficiency.  At that time, homes were becoming harder to sell and no one wanted to talk about energy efficiency.  But now, let's just say I'm swamped!  

 

The point is, I wrote that first post and members commented.  It was my first taste at writing a blog, posting something of which I was familiar even though I had never written a blog.  It took me a while after Rain Camp came to Scottsdale to join, let alone to blog. 

 

But how happy am I to still be here among great people sharing stories, seasons, life's changes, and the many real estate lessons in print!  Thank you all!

I am glad you are still around, so many people have left the site. Here's to ten more years if you want it.

You are so right Michael Jacobs !  My license tag has been GREENRE for years and so in my old office I was known as "Greener"!

I think a lot of us "lurked" Nina Hollander .  Reading all of those great blogs and thinking, "What the heck do I write?"  Well eventually I stumbled into it on 2/18/09.  I remember going to Raincamp in Scottsdale and was immediately intrigued. Thank you for commenting!

Good for you Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty !  Raincamp was here in 2008 and it took me a while, but boy am I glad I continued.  And you're right about like-minded people.  So great!

Liekwise Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 it's been such fun getting to know you, hanging out with Nancy, Carol and others.  You are a good friend to know and cherish!  See you soon :)  P.S. Maybe we were both at Raincamp in Scottsdale in 2008?

So glad you made it home okay Carol Williams - I get those long drives.  It takes a lot out of you, but who is going to stop when you can sleep in your own bed?!  Not us!  It has been such a pleasure getting to know you.  I hope to see you in San Fran this fall. I'm planning on going.  Not because it's so close, well maybe a little, but I felt so bad not going last November that I'm committed to going this year!

Thank you Joe Pryor . I hear you.  A lot of familiar faces aren't here and it seems sad.  All the more reason to keep reading and writing posts. I can't entirely give it up.  After meeting such great people, you included!  Thank you for sticking with it!

I know what you mean. I had to think on it, then clicked on my blogs for the first one written 2/18/09.  Pretty sure I joined before that, but didn't check back Sally K. & David L. Hanson .   Thank you for reading and commenting
