"The only way to have a friend is to be one."
---Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome December with the implementation of your dreams. May you begin this month being mindful of common courtesy using Best Practices.
Think about everything going on in your life that would be of interest to others. Check your calendars. If you're marketing your business, make it interesting. Being unique draws people in. Photos to the eye are like candy to a child. Be sweet when you write.
Use proper spelling and grammar. Keep posts and sentences short. Answer questions and respond to comments as quickly as you can. Be careful about using the right name. For example, "Thank you for sharing, (Name) may be nice but when you respond to everyone the same way and say no more, there is no real connection and people get bored.
If someone asks a question that you don't want to answer, a response may start like this: Great question, (Name). Please contact me directly for more information and I'll get in touch.
Keep your personal, political views to yourself. Writing a comment and throwing in a political slant when the topic had nothing to do with politics is rude. Enjoy the camaraderie of ActiveRain by connecting in a social and friendly way. Welcome December and dream well!
