Carlyn, Reading and learning is the best place to start.  Commenting and posting  and then implementing what you have learned.  This is a great place to network, ask questions and glean all kinds of tip, tools and a giggle or two!  Have fun and keep coming back.

Carlyn:  Welcome to Active Rain!  You're gonna' love it!  You definitely joined the right group and you are on the right track.  Read and absorb all you can and jump in and blog.  Just be yourself and have great fun.  Hope to see you in the rain.

Tip:  Reciprocity (you can go to search and type that word and read blogs written about this, one especially good one was written by The Lovely Wife.  Anyway, those who comment on your blogs, be sure to leave a comment recognizing that they commented and then go to one or however many of their blogs and read their profile and blogs and leave a comment for them.  That's how reciprocity works.  Hope that helps.

Hi, Carlyn, Welcome from Tennessee! The best part of AR is that everyone is willing - and eager - to share. Have a question or issue, need to know how to do something, just wondering about something? Just ask. Everyone is great! Welcome aboard!

Welcome to AR, Carlyn. I'm a newbie myself - need to write this blog. I just jumped in with something I was particularly passionate about at the moment. I have learned more in the last couple of weeks than I think I have learned in 7 years in real estate. It's the BEST!
