Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

 

The Holidays have arrived whether we're ready or not! Since it's been an 'interesting' year unlike any others, we thought it would be a great idea to have some Holiday Fun and Cheer in the rain!

 

Nothing heavy, nothing you have to think or ponder on! This challenge  is simply to share Holiday Cheer and Joy! 

 

1. New Rule - You must tag both Carol Williams and Anna 'Banana' Kruchten in your holiday entry post. Why? Since we can't get into groups we need a way to KNOW who's posting!

 

2. Write either one or two or three holiday posts, your choice.

 

3. Be sure to insert Holiday photos into each post!  

 

4 .You will recieve 500 points each, for up to 3 posts.

 

5. You must insert all of your post entries (total of 3) into one comment on this original post to receive your points.

 

6. Challenge begins December 1st and end December 31st.

 

 

Remember the POINT of this challenge

is to spread Holiday Cheer!

 

 

            Hosted by Head Elf Carol Williams & Santa Anna Banana!

 

 

Here's a few Holiday Themes to get your started!  Feel free to chose your own Holiday theme!  The more cheer the merrier for all!

I planned to post however the way things are right now I doubt I will unless the issues are fixed.  I would rather watch paint dry than to deal with the issues. The new editor is thumbs down, IMHO.

Hi Sharon Tara here's how to get into AR a side door.  When you login forget the mad dog - just ignore him.  Look up to the top bar and and you'll see blogs, Q & A and the little red flag will have a number if someone has left you a tag or comment etc.  Click on and you're in the side door of AR.  To post after you're done writing it - DO NOT SAVE IT.  Go directly to PUBLISH. The mad dog will show his ugly face but again IGNORE it.  It will post.  I've been doing this since Saturday and it worked every time.  Good luck!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker and Carol Williams - Well, this is strange, I wrote my blog post for the December Challenge; however, each time I did the "at" sign and tried to insert Carol's name, the function did not work; yet when I tried it here, I had no problem. As you probably know, there are still issues with the system, i.e, I can't center, some names tag; others don't, and a few more issues. I wasn't trying to break your new Rule, the system right now, has a mind of its own. By the way, I don't even know if this link is mine or yours...

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 
Senility is not the issue.  Of that I am sure.  As Wayne Martin said the other day in a comment on Kathy Streib's post, the AR playground is big and we can't possibly get to all the toys without a friend pointing the ones we missed out. Glad you found this one.

HI Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP 
Lots of "strange" going on right now. We are all getting quite adept at finding workarounds for the various issues going on... and sharing when we discover one. Hopefully, those gremlins will be exterminated soon and no workarounds will be required.
