Friday Fun…Do You Remember Yours?


Over the years here I’ve written several posts. I had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to Brad Andersohn and Bob Stewart, I soon learned how to write a post, insert clipart or photos, add links, and write for my intended reader.


Do you remember the first post you wrote???



Mine is here and in the interest of full disclosure, I revamped it a few times, which we can all do if we choose. BTW- thank you Cindy Edwards for giving me my first comment on my blog.


So if you wish share a link to your first post in the comment section. 


And if you’re of a mind, please head to another member’s first post and comment on it. 


All you have to do is go to your Home Page >Scroll down and you’ll see Traffic(Stats)>Click on it and your stats will be on the right.

Click on the column DATE and it will take you to your first post. 


So how about sharing your first post with us???

Morning Kathy, my first post was on 4/2/08 and on market news even back then, and although I inserted no photos, it was informative.   My two friends in NYC - Eileen and Morgan came back years later to post and Michael Jacobs posted even later.

Of course I had to go back and look once again at your first post on AR Kathy!  And I'm still impressed!  Way ahead of my 10/6/08 very first post! 

It is fun looking back to all those years ago. I wasn't happy with the media frenzy back then and still don't like it!!

Hi Kathy,

I have reviewed that first post many times.  I shake my head every time I see it.  I have no plans to change it.  I think it is so important to see where you have been and where you are now.  Thanks for sharing your first post with us. Happy Friday.

I don't remember my first post.  It was back in spring of 2008.  I need to look it up in the archives.

Kathy my first few blogs were pretty bad.  I didn't have a clue of what I was doing, but that did not stop me from jumping in feet first.

Nina Hollander, Broker I left a comment earlier. It's interesting looking back at older posts and seeing members who no longer blog here.

My first post was

Is Anxiety Stealing Your Valuable Time

My first comment received was from a Rainer who hasn't been active since 2010. 

Actually all the comments from back then are from people no longer active.

The last comment on that post is the only still-active commenter... Michael Jacobs with a recent comment from Dec. 2021.

It can be fun to visit first blog posts years after they were published.  When new posts are scarce or for a number of other reasons, a little rabbit hole searching through the AR archives can make such a trip kinda fun.

Kathy, What a fun thing to do.  Here is my first post from way back in 2008.  No comments.  I think it is still timely.  Thanks for the suggestion of doing this.
