Localism is the valued point of connection, a place of meaningful interaction. It's where neighbors and local merchants share what's happening in their community. It's people collectively communicating the unique flavor and nuances of where they live, work, eat, and play.
Localism is 'Old-School' in a New World portal. It's reminiscent of an earlier day when people shopped where they lived, and everyone knew their butcher. Localism makes the world smaller and more personal. It reacquaints and re-establishes the lost bonds between neighbors. It revives and restores the relational elements of what neighborhoods used to be, and should be.
Localism provides the environment where residents and business owners can create a micro-social network uniquely attuned to their individual communities. Together, they use multi-media to paint a canvas of local color and texture. Their Localism 'Neighborpedia' becomes an extension of who and what they are.
Allow me to share two of the founding principles from our ActiveRain Weltanschauung:
We understand that the value of the ActiveRain community rests entirely with its members.
We believe that real estate professionals will thrive if they demonstrate their local market expertise.
My fellow ActiveRain members, the strength and success of our community will always lie with its members. Our role is to simply create the environment that empowers and enables you to 'thrive!' Now, get out there and meet some neighbors!
