Day 1!

Real Estate Agent with Sand and Sun Real Estate

Just returned from the South Carolina Association of Realtors convention in Charleston.  What a great event as I was able to connect with old friends and make many new acquaintences. I even won a book from on of the door prize drawings!  Henry Winkler, aka The Fonz, was our keynote speaker on opening day.  He did a really, really good job!  Who knew he was a motivational speaker?!

We're getting a bit of fall weather - don't know how to dress in the mornings - I like to dress one time and stay that way. I've never been good at "layering" clothes.  The days are getting shorter so if I want to go over to my favorite restaurant to watch the sunset, I'll have to get there much earlier.

Next time I'll share with you some of the events taking place here soon.

Sounds like a fun event, did you actually get to meet "The Fonz"? Welcome to the rain and maybe you can take pictures of the sunset from your favorite restaurant, we would love to see them.

No, didn't get to meet The Fonz - this time!  Maybe later!  I'll take a picture from the waterfront restaurant on the Marsh Walk of Murrells Inlet - always takes my breath away.

Welcome to Active Rain! This is a great website for building your business, as well as learning from others.  Pat yourself on the back, because you made a GREAT choice in joining the blogosphere!

Write often, and write whatever comes to mind.  Blogs about personal topics and non-real estate items are often the best.  It helps your readers to bond with you, and ends up bringing you a lot of business!

Good luck with your future blogging.  If you'd like more info on points in Active Rain, I just wrote a blog about it (click here). Feel free to ask me any questions if you need a hand!
