Active Rain made me a Super Agent! Some Great Past Memories!

By
Real Estate Agent with Broker, Friends & Neighbors Real Estate and Elkhart County Subdivisions, LLC RB14037276

My past Active Rain family has been missed, but not forgotten.  My first blog was on Active Rain. I remember being apprehensive about doing a blog, but with everyone's support, it became a fun daily activity for a number of years. After joining in 2009, I wrote a few blogs here and there, but in 2013 I felt comfortable in my messages and started getting into posting more often.

I remember when I got my first Featured Blog in August of  2013.

 http://activerain.com/blogsview/3820098/10-reasons-why-i-won-t-sell-your-home-and-i-don-t-do-windows----

It has received over 10,500 likes since then. I was so excited to see all the likes and comments and wanted to write more like it. 

From the daily posts that I read, my Real Estate knowledge increased rapidly.  I have since obtained my Pre-Licensing Instructors Certification and have been thinking about having an on-line course for Indiana.

 

As a popular Nostalgic Artist, I no longer travel around the country, but have had my work shown for several years at the Midwest Museum of American Art, in Elkhart, Indiana and creating some new ones.  I still ship prints around the country.

            

 

We had an exciting time as Evelyn and I created short movies for the one of the contests that were held once a year.

 

    

Then there were the meetups, where we traveled to spend time with other Active Rainers.

 

You know! 

Just talking about Active Rain,

makes me want to get more active again.

Everyone I talk to believe that being Found online is everything. But most don’t know how to proactively move towards this goal. AR was a great difference maker
