Last Week's Favorites on ActiveRain - April 28 to May 4

Real Estate Agent with RLAH@properties AB95346

It's Sunday morning again! As the week flew by, these posts (for one reason or another) caught my eye:

Andrea Bedard: Fair Housing: military status, a new protected class in Maryland  This is a good idea that might have a few unintended consequences.  Many of the comments are as interesting as the post!

Alan May: Dance like nobody's watching  There comes a point in every ActiveRain bloggers experience when you figure out that you can't buy Jimmy Choo's with AR Points!

Liz and Bill Spear: Ask An Ambassador: I Don't Have Time For This! So this is great advice for bloggers with writers' block, or maybe what I call "thinkers' block".

Jeff Dowler: Update on our Monarch Butterfly Nursery  There is something about monarch butterflies that is beautiful, fragile and especially magical. And Jeff nabbed it.

Michael Elliot: It's Not What You Say, But How You Say It  You just can't hear this  bit of advice too often!  And Michael spells it out so simply that all of us can understand it..

Ed Silva: What Makes Me the "Who You Gonna Call" Agent   This has a lot of the basics, and they are basics because they have worked through all kinds of real estate markets.

Lew Corcoran: Feast on Wheels: The Greenway Food Truck Festival at Rowes Wharf Plaza    Lew made my mouth water with this post as I sit here with my morning cup of mushroom coffee!

Laura Sellers: Navigating the Affordability Challenge in Housing - First-Time Buyers  The person who finds a solution for this one might just win a Nobel Prize!

Marte Cliff: Stop! Read what you wrote before you publish it. Following Marte's advice could save you a lot of embarrassment. Maybe we need someone to do a weekly  bloopers list!

That's all for this week. And if your next week's posts read like they were written by a human who is not a ghost writer (that is probably you), it just might get included!

This is a fun one to write. I'm trying to include more bloggers I don't know, but there are so many really, really well written posts that I think are ghost written. Aargh!

It's true - it must be hard to find excellent posts that are actually written by the person being highlighted!

Thank you, Pat, for including my post in this stellar line-up! I hear you about AI-generated "blogs" - we shouldn't even call them that. I wish there was a way to ban them from AR.
