Active Rain Newsletter....... Myth, Mystery or Imagined?

Real Estate Agent with Bend River Realty Inc.

I am beginning to it just another urban legend? Where is the AR newsletter I keep reading about? There are plenty of vague references to it, how great it is and even co-conspirators vowing that it REALLY does exist. I can't find it though, not one link to it, not one shred of hard evidence proving that it's real.

I even tried to email Brad Andersohn and guess what happened? My browser shut down. Coincidence? I think not. There's definitely a conspiracy going on here but the fact remains......

I need to know. Is such a wonderful thing as an AR newsletter possible or is it just a figment (albeit a wonderful one) of my imagination? A daily newsletter complete with featured blogs and members and articles of interest? It can't be. It's not possible.

But if it is (I secretly really do believe), can someone send me the link or better yet, evidence? I think there's a few others here that would like to see it for themselves.

Kelli, I get the newsletter.  At first I thought it was spam since it comes from .Check your spam mail and your unopened mail for something like this.

I received it via email a couple times. It was a bunch of ads. I may have unsubscribed or it's being caught in one of several spam filters, not sure.

Kelli, I've been here awhile and never heard of the AR newsletter. Another 'Big Foot' mystery at Active Rain.

Jeez, the newsletter comes twice a week. I'm getting kind of tired of it and you can't find it?

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Weird that it's so inconsistent.... some people get it and know all about it, others have never heard of it, even others bored with it. What's the scoop and if you are getting it, can you tell me how you signed up?

Kelli - good work, let's solve this mystery!  I am now getting really intrigued that so many have never ever heard of it!   Actually it comes 5 days a week.  In my inbox it looks like this..  FROM:  ActiveRain Real Estate Network  

I will try and forward one of the links to you, just so you know what you're missing.  Love that photo!

Good Evening/ Morning All~

Thankfully, in this midst of 110K members, Rich Jacobson has come to my rescue : ) (Thanks soooooo da bomb!) Also, a big thanks to Brad Andersohn for getting my request to the right person.

I'm looking forward to seeing the newsletter for the first time and if I could could make one tiny recommendation to the AR Gods.: Designate a "subscribe to newsletter" option on each members settings page, something they could choose when they first sign on to AR.

That's all for now. G'night y'all : )
