Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-March 21 to March 27, 2021


Every day there is something new to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts 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!


March 21: Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Spring- Celebrating the Pacific Tree Frog

While I'm not overly fond of frogs, I love the photo and what I learned about the Pacific Tree Frog.


March 22:  Joseph Domino    Leave the dog.

I’ll bet you have had interesting requests from Buyers or Sellers about what conveys with the house!  Share them or write a post about them!


March 24: Rocky Dickerson Re/Mix

Great music but what if you took this idea and applied it to your business or even personal life. A little bit of this added to some of what you already have!!!

Many of us will shake our heads yes as we read this. Check to make sure that you're not doing the same thing to your readers.

You'll chuckle with this one and perhaps learn something as well.
