Services for Real Estate Pros with East Valley Living

I have met a lot of new people here on Active Rain since I started using it actively.  Apparently there are large numbers of people on here from the greater Phoenix Area and I actually went to a meeeting recently in Chandler where quite a few of those AR members attended.

Thsi group is called the AZ Real Estate Blogging Network and can be found here:

AZ Real Estate Blogging Network




Those of you who met me there and have not yet connected with me, I can be found online at most of the major social networking sites.  In addition to Active Rain, I am on FaceBook, Myspace, Twitter, Friendfeed and lots of other places.

The places that I find most productive to keep in touch with people are LinkedIn and Twitter so if you want to stay in touch outside of ActiveRain:

I came back to ask a question...   How in the world do you keep up with all of the networks you are on?  I am overwhelmed just trying to keep up with ActiveRain!

Good morning Doreen,

That is a very good question.

It can be quite difficult to keep up with everything, especially when not all of them are working.

Twitter has been so sporadic that if can no longer be considered reliable for anything, at least for the time being.  Many of the networks get less attention when they are acting badly.  They become a time sink of the worst kind when it is broken.

LinkedIn and LinkedIn Live get a lot of attention, then Active Rain.  MyBlogLog gets visited and as well as Blog Catalog when an e-mail interupts the flow of my day and needs to be dealth with.

Scottsdale Job Network has specific times marked off for meetings and the online portion often gets dealth with late in the evenings.

Time management becomes a problem now and then but for the most part, things that has a scheduled time get done then and things that don't either get done when I get around to them or the don't get done.

For a while I had an assistant but she has been gone for a few months so things are beginning to not get done as clients come first.

Bill - Thanks for mentioning our newly formed group - AZ Real Estate Blogging Network! It was a pleasure meeting you at our 2nd meeting on May 29th. I hope you can make it to future meetings and would love to hear more input of your knowledge. You definitely shared a ton and we appreciate your comments and participation.

Reading your comments above, I have noticed that many social networks across the net are slowing down some due to the popularity or otherwise. It does become frustrating and time consuming nonetheless. arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhh.

Be sure to mark your calendar for June 20th and in the meantime, expect an invite to lunch so that I can visit in more detail and pick your brain! I could use some WP help big time!

Have a great week and thanks again for jumping on board.
