A thank you to Active Rain

By
Real Estate Agent with Goedert Real Estate

I am in no way a big wig on AR. I am just over 15,000 points, so you know my presence needs work and effort.  I believe in this website, I have read so many success stories and even received wonderful calls and support from members during some stressful times that I am a complete convert to the rain.  I am trying to bulid my local presence by posting to localism and it is both fun and opening my eyes to what my own town has to offer.

Today I received an email from one of active rain's own rainmakers, letting me know he made some changes to my post to help it show up better in localism.  I was amazed. with over 100,000 members. he found my post and took the time to make it better for me.  WOW.  I took his advice and changed some earlier posts titles and tags and suddenly they all  showed up in my city and county under localism. 

This is a public thank you to Rich Jacobon who took the time to help me make my post better.  I am so impressed by the attention and care that the staff of AR gives to all of us, small and starting out to large and already well known.  Where else can you get this kind of wonderful help without even having to ask.  Acitive Rain is not a cold, massive, impersonal site, they are real and caring, how wonderful.

Great testimonial Beth. They do work hard on AR and it shows. I do not think any of them has got more that 4 hours sleep since they launched Localism, you can tell from their posts.. 3 cheers for the AR team!!!

Beth, what were the changes you made to get your post to show up under localism? I think we all need a better understanding of what we are doing or not doing right in that regard. THe folks behind Active Rain do a lot to make this all run and run well.

Thanks for the post Beth.

AR does really work, I'm not much ahead of you in points but looks like we're on the same path.

Best of luck

Richard~  I hed posted about a few things in my area that I thought people would enjoy.  Under the tags I only put in words that related to the acitivity or store, and I did not include my county and state as tags.  I also failed to included my city somewhere in the headline.  With a few small changes and additions of those items, I found myself on localism for both my county and my city.  Little changes, big difference, I just didn't know and with Rich's help, I am on track.

Cynthia~ I found everything I needed to customize my blog here on AR for free.  Marti Garaughty has offered many different headers for free to members and gives you a link to where to go to add verbiage and tweek the header.  Once you have your header the way you want it, save it and go to the customizer there you will make you blog look just how you want it with the colors for the background and the header side.  Everyone working together to make everyone look good,  Where else can you find such great help?

Hi Beth Thanks for the visit to My blog and the wise comment.  I thought I would pop over here to visit you.  I so agree..It always has amazed me how the guys with the least amount of time are always there for the members.  I have too received that sort of help and that sort of support just ripples through Active Rain.  If the top guns, who are so busy can find time ...we need to too.  That is why AR is a force to be reckoned with. Have fun, stop by and enjoy the rain
