What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-May 19 to May 25, 2019


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!


jeffrey dimuriaMay 19:  Jeffrey DiMuria   Do We Allow “Time Bandits” to Get Us Off Track?

Jeffrey wrote a well deserved featured post that all of us can use. He has a great way of handling time bandits that won’t have you losing friends.


patricia feagerMay 20: Patricia Feager Appreciating All the Beauty You Can See

As I read this, I thought of the saying "stop and smell the roses." How often do we do this on our daily walks?


robert sicilianoMay 21: Robert Siciliano How to Protect Your Identity When Buying or Selling a Home

We know this but this is good information to give to your clients!!!


barry owenBarry Owen No Pictures? It didn't happen...

Barry makes an excellent point and it ties into a recurrent theme I've read in the posts here about being in the present.


monica hillMay 22: Monica Hill Back Up the Bus. It's On My Foot!

I love this expression!!! Want to know more? Read Monica's post!



debbjanes and bernie steaMay 23: Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD YouTube Thursdays -Video Apps for Your Smartphones

Most of us use our smartphones to shoot photos and videos. There are a myriad of apps available and if you're like me, you never really know which ones to try. I'm trying these!!!


nina hollanderMay 24: Nina Hollander Thoughts of Honor, Sacrifice, and Freedom for Memorial Day Weekend.

Nina honors all those who have sacrificed for our country. Help your children understand that war and going into battle isn't a video game or summer action flick.


michael jacobsMay 25: Michael Jacobs Another New Kid on the Block

I am a huge fan of the subject of Michael's post. This post is what this community is all about...support for each other. And if you aren't familiar with Roy Kelley I hope you'll follow his blog.


cindy edwardsCindy Edwards Distractions are More than Cell Phones

All right, I know there are many animal lovers here so please read Cindy's post!!!


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