Would You?  I know it's against the general guidelines of Active Rain and the Etiquette 101 Group to put links (SPAM) in the comments of other members posts.  I agree with this rule and will fully abide by it.  In this one case, can we make an exception?  

I wanted to share with others, some of the coolest things I have found out on the rain.  Being a newbie (there's that word again),  I wanted to share the resources and discoveries I have made.  My invite list has grown larger than expected, and I feel I owe them this post! 

I am asking the "Rain Gods"  to make an exception with the comments just in "this post."  I am actually asking for links in the comments  (just this once).  I'm looking for links to the Best and Coolest stuff.  (see mine below)  This is for me and all my Realtor and Lender friends that I invited to Active Rain.  Others will surely benefit too.

This network is such a powerful resource of information with thousands of members and millions of posts.  It could take months or even years to read all those, to find out about all the technologies and knowledge that is available via these 25,000+ members.  So here goes...

Since joining Active Rain around seven weeks ago, (Feb 27th to be exact),  these are some of the "Best" tools, links, services, technologies, and just "COOL STUFF" that I have found.  

 "BRAD's Top 10 Active Rain Discoveries"  -  THIS IS REALLY COOL STUFF!!

  1. Slide - Creates Free slide shows.  Great for Website, Listings, Family and Friends etc.
  2. Meebo- A Free Online Chat Module for your website or Activerain Profile Page
  3. Overweb3D - Cool Multimedia for your Real Estate Website
  4. Google Analytics - Awesome tracking for your website and profile page
  5. Clustermaps - FREE Visitor Mapping for your web.  Shows a World Map with all your visitors
  6. BatchGeoCode - Map Multiple Locations, great for travel of tour sheet
  7. Rand McNally - (NEW) Get directions between multiple stops, all in one route
  8. Google Earth - Absolutely the coolest thing on Earth! The world at your desktop! FREE
  9. Primo PDF- A Free PDF Convertor, Converts any printable doc to a .pdf format (save $500.00)
  10. MyPublisher - A website that allows you to upload photos and create a nicely bound book
    for your clients. A great closing gift! Less than $30.00. (A Great Referral Book)

I know there are hundreds more, so what have you discovered on Active Rain?  I've shared with you, now it's your turn.  What is the first product, link, website tool, or program that comes to your mind?  Please create a link to it in the comments section below.  Come on...you gotta share.

I'm hoping that other members will find more value in your comments, than they do my post.  :-)

Brad,  If you want to sign up, just go to www.sendoutcards.com/millertime and hit the link that says JOIN.  As I mentioned, there is a fee, but it has more than paid for itself for me.  The guy that got me started on it is making $3K a month now off of this thing.....pretty sweet.

Dearest Aida - Ah Yes, Income!  Can't live with it, can't live without it! lol~  We should talk sometime about all the ways you can turn your Blog into a money making machine.  A classic demonstration of this will be when you send me a check for 29.95, and I show you how!  lol~  :-)

Celeste - Thank you but you should thank Aida, this post sat from DEC 2007 till JULY 2008.  I am always shocked when these old posts pop up.  This was one of the first few posts I wrote on AR. :-)

Margaret - Yes, a classic for sure.  Reading it now made me realize how far we really can come with our writing skills when we just keep doing it!  It's kinda funny reading some of my old posts...really.  lol~

Brad...just wondered.  In May of last year (according to this blog list) you mentioned starting a blog with latest and greatest gadgets/techno tools.  Before I start looking at all of the one's listed here I thought I'd check and see if you started a new list or if there is a more up to date list I should go to check out.   thanks

Celeste - there is a ton of new things that have come out since this post, I mean a ton!!  There's a link under my photo to Widget World. You'll find links to all the Real Estate widget and gadget sites all over the internet there.  I also have a few posts on my profile page that cover 100's of links to some pretty useful sites. You can check out those by clicking on my name below.  Let me know if you need further assistance finding this stuff, there's so much out here in the rain, you'll easily find what you need...always!!  :-)

What a great post!!!  And thanks to everyone for all these great ideas!!!!  I'd like to add to the list a great tool from Microsoft (who knew!!!!) that I found a few months ago when I was looking for something that allowed me to save a whole host of different kinds content and, in the process, discovered One Note.  For some reason, I was thinking this was like a "post it" for the computer.....WRONG!!!!  Check out the demo to get an idea as to what it does!

WOW Martin, A year and 3 days!!  I had to blow off the dust and clear the cobwebs from this post. I had even forgotten I wrote this! ROFL. 

Thanks for bringing it back to life and for reminding me that "the computer will always have more memory than me!"  lol~  :-))

This post just goes to show ya that the stuff you put on your AR Blog lasts forever, and you just never know who will find it months later and still appreciate it. 

Thanks again Martin.  :-)

BTW - This post eventually evolved into this one. Top 200 Sites!

In the interest of keeping this post 'alive' I want to offer up another link that I discovered through ActiveRain.  It is a link to the Animal Rescue Site where by clicking on the purple box you donate food to rescued animals.  Seems like a great idea to me!

Thanks Michael - great idea and a worthy site.  With all the foreclosures, REO's, and short sales going on all over the country, I hear and see many animals getting left behind and abandoned.  The Animal Rescue foundations all across the country must have their hands full and can use all the support they can get right now.
