Second Chance Saturday: Week 136

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   


Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Oh, I'm so glad you're back! I think I managed to comment on about 60 posts today and of course, had to add a few tonight from your list! I think I have one more to go.

As always, thank you for taking the time to do this, Carol!

Enjoy your weekend...

Okay, maybe 40 - I wasn't really counting but, I went back to the points page to return to a post I had commented on earlier (I thought of something to add!!) and it was the last post showing on my points tally! That had been a LONG time prior! LOL 

I swear, I feel like I spend more time catching up here than leisurely reading and commenting. 

Hope you have a wonderful week, Carol!

Great list! I missed most of these. I've been dealing with some internet challenges and haven't been able to get here as often as I'd like.
