Great Blogs From Around the Country. Things to Do/Places to Visit

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Property Experts

photo of sunsetI had other plans for today's blog, until I started reading the blogs in the Things to Do/Places to Visit Group, on Active Rain. I have to admit, I'm not always on top of things in the group, so thank you, everyone who continues to post great information about things to do in your areas, or places you recommend we visit (or move to). We now have over 1,000 posts in the group and I think in all this time (actually only 8 months), I've only had to remove one post that didn't follow the guidelines of the group.

As I perused the posts today, I was impressed by the variety and quality of the blog posts I found. So I thought I'd put together a compilation, and share them with other readers who may not know about the group, or just don't know about all these fabulous bloggers. So in totally random order, here are some great recommendations on things you can find to do, in places you might like to visit or even move to, all about the country.

There are plenty more fantastic posts in the Things to Do/Places to Visit Group. If you frequently blog for Localism about the merits of your home town, we'd love to have you join our group. And if you're interested in being a moderator for the group, I wouldn't mind having some help =).  Also, if you're already a member of the group, be sure to comment on each other's posts, so everyone can be sure to have comments on their posts.

If you do not post these types of posts, please read my own post about my difficulty in finding things for my daughter to do in a new town, as she enters her first year of college.

Hi Lisa, I'm guilty of not visiting the group!  I post to it but haven't been there to see what is happening.  I will improve on that effort.  Thank you for all of your work!

GREAT IDEA LISA,

This is a great group for people who love to travel and/or are looking for a place to retire, etc.  I highly recommend this group even if just looking for vacation travel plans. Great post once again, worthy of feature.

Well, what a surprise. I just logged in and found my gold star =D.  I haven't had one in a while, and wasn't expecting one either. But it's nice to know when something's appreciated. Thanks everyone. I wish I could have mentioned more of the posts there. As Susie Blackmon commented, she is a VERY frequent poster to the group! And she writes great stuff, as well as takes gorgeous photos.

And umm... I kinda still need another moderator... hint, hint ;)

This is really neat to see what is going on out there. We get so caught up in our own world and have tunnel vision. Very cool post. Thank you.

Hi Lisa I just joined this group and I love this post especially when you encourage comments and I would add for the creator of the blog to respond to that comment.  I see more and more of that going on now , then I did 3 months ago.

It creates a bond and re pore.Your post is wonderful, the group is a terrific idea and I am excited to become a part of it.  the photos are incredible.

June- I used to respond to every comment, but most people don't check back anyway. However, if Active Rain would make the comments work like they do on You Tube.... meaning the person who commented is notified when someone responds to one of their comments.... I would respond to every comment. I have a large channel on You Tube (1700 subscribers) and I respond to every comment because of the exact example you gave.  =)
