Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-January 9 to January 15, 2022


Every day there is something 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!


GrantJanuary 9: Grant Schneider Let Them Know What Is In It For Them

This is one of the first things we all need to remember whether in working with clients or in our personal lives.


RaymondJanuary 10: Raymond Henson Blogging for 11 Years, It Is Time for a Review.

If you're not doing what Raymond did, you might be missing what is and isn't working for you.


ElaineJanuary 11: Elaine VonCannon Grandma Knew Farm to Table Cooking

Elaine's post has inspired me to revisit some of the old recipes that I haven't cooked in ages. Very interesting read.


Lynn B. Friedman CRS  January 12: Lynn B. Friedman Atlanta Buckhead Midtown: Yes, Lasagna Can Change the World

What a wonderful story of how each one of us can make a difference.


MarteJanuary 13: Marte Cliff Why do smart people write "call I?"

Her posts to help keep us on the right grammar track have been missed.


LisaJanuary 14:  Lisa Broussard     Ugh, another "expert," another "thing" I need to do on social media.

Welcome, Lisa to ActiveRain and read her very well-written post. If you’re struggling with your social media presence, you'll want to read this.

We had a lot of single digit temps in late December and early January... then our big record-breaking snow storm on the 6th. Much of the town is still digging out from that. We're getting some above freezing temps now so it's melting slowly.  My heating bill was quite a bit higher this month but I don't care. I'm staying warm!!!  😊
