Thankful For ActiveRain

Of all the ActiveRain contests, November's is the easiest one. The hardest part is choosing what to share.

 

I searched for 'Thankful and my name' and found many pages on ActiveRain.

 

Thankful for ActiveRain

 

 Let's list a few things to be thankful for about THE RAIN:

 -Starting the morning reading comments on last night's post. 

-Reading one question by a member and seeing dozens of responses. 

-Reading about the success and good news of Rainers and how the community positively responds

-Watching this community come together when there is a loss. 

-The sharing and caring we see daily with members reaching out in comments, blogs, emails, texts, calls, and referrals. 

-The ease of finding expert advice on any Real Estate subject.  

-Getting to know members well enough to trust your best clients and family members.

-Members who continue weekly and day after day keep us informed. 

-The ability to find what you need by posting to Q&A.

-The smoothness of AR and the quick response by the Dev Team.

-The positivity, learning, and camaraderie of each Tuesday's Zoom meeting. 

-The appreciation of being able to log on every day since 2006. 

-Hearing about lifetime friendships that began on this platform. 

 No names are included in this post because there would not be enough space or time to list them.   There are a lot, and you know who you are! 

But I will thank Debe Maxwell, CRS, for the November Thankful Challenge.

We are all thankful for you!

I am thankful for ActiveRain too for all of those reasons that you have listed in your post.  I only wish that I had started in earnest, like you did, in 2006.  I was late to the game, but I still made it. 😃  One thing not on your list, I am happy that I was able to meet a wonderful radio show host!

Good morning Margaret. So many I have met personally, over the phone or through text messaging and emails over the years that I would not have if not for the Rain. Let it Rain forever! Enjoy your day.

Hello Margaret - degrees of difficulty can be determined in different ways.  Sometimes it's due to the abundance of possibilities.  Have a good show today.

Like you, Margaret, I'm thankful for ActiveRain.  When I was an active real estate agent, I looked to it as a wellspring of collective tribal information.  During the pandemic when we were in our most isolated months, I found it a place where I could continue to connect with friends found on this platform.

Margaret like you I have no shortage of things I have been blessed with many things to be thankful for.  So picking which ones to blog about will also be the toughest part of the challenge for me.

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 - what a wonderful blog post. You didn't just list the benefits, you included the bonuses too, for which you never expected when you signed up. Nor, did any of us!

Margaret, you are the Voice. An amazing Voice for AR and you are always interested in others. 

Thank you.
