Another New Kid On The Block   Despite rumblings to the contrary, this is not a post about a boy band from the 1980s or 1990s.  Or any of those attempting to make a comeback.  Once again. 

 

It's something we likely see throughout our travels everyday.  No need to book a trip to a far off distant land(oh but that would be nice, right?) but it occurs right in your own backyard - well kinda.  I thought of this the other day while making a trip just beyond the boundaries of the immediate neighborhood.  You know kinda like welcoming another new kid on the block.  It's just the neighborly thing to do.  

 

But it can and does happen everywhere.  New businesses.  That shop.   This restaurant.  A new service.  A necessary must-have previously unknown to some if not many people. 

 

Many of the membership of ActiveRain do a terrific job promoting their local communities and the people who make things happen.  Perhaps the best at doing that here on AR is Roy Kelley who finds things to see and do of interest as well as sharing what's new or different in his community.  Real people like to know.  Real people need to know. 

 

You likely follow Roy but if by chance you don't --- do that.  Right now and if you haven't visited his posts lately, stop by and make a comment and see what's new.  He's not the new kid on the block but he may be able to  show you something new or share something you need to know.  His welcoming ways and support of the membership in this community are more than just a one hit wonder.

Oh, the weirdness that goes on in my mind at times Sharon Tara. Pondering, going off-track and assorted random ideas come together.  And occassionally fall apart.  Thank you for the nice comment.

Hannah Williams - thank you for the very kind comments.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - and those photos of flowers - some are truly amazing.  

John Henry - the reblogs of Roy Kelley are considerate, his localism posts inform the residents of his community(and inspring to other members of how to do it) and his photos are awe-inspiring.

Oh, I loveRoy Kelley's support of the community too, Michael! I see him welcoming new bloggers quite often and love that he does that. He really is about 'community' and we should all take a page out of his book!

Debe Maxwell, CRS if there is ever an ActiveRain dictionary I could see a photo of Roy Kelley with the definition of generous/generosity to other members accompanying that word.

Ricardo Mello - as members of the ActiveRain community we are fortunate that Roy is here.

Kat Palmiotti - there's no argument there.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - his commitment to welcoming new people and as well as reblogging members' posts to highlight them continue to enhance the spirit of the AR philsophy.

Michael Jacobs - What a nice thing you did for Roy Kelley. What I especially like about Roy is he mixes things up, he is never boring, always has something interesting to share, and takes time to notice new AR bloggers by welcoming them and re-blogging too. 

Roy is someone to be revered for his loyalty and dedication to ActiveRain.
