The long and winding road - to 300,000 points!

By
Real Estate Agent with Orlando Area Real Estate Services
I woke up this morning to discover I'd gone through the magical 300,000 point barrier. Amazingly, it is still possible to breathe here!

It has in fact, come much sooner than I thought it would. And what a journey it has been! There have been Localism posts including some features, stories about my family, competition entries and even a victory and, of course, politics.

So many people say you should not post about politics - but I disagree. I think it is extremely important that your clients know who you are. That's why there are stories about my family; that's why there are many animal stories; that's why there are tributes to our men and women in harms' way.

Perhaps it is because of my radio show. You can't fake radio. You get found out really fast and so I never have. I am who I am and my blog here on AR is a window to that person.

How have I benefitted from being here on AR? First and foremost I have developed relationships with people I might otherwise never have met. As we hurtle through life on this blue rock flying in the black vastness of space, it is the relationships we form that ultimately give purpose to it all. I am grateful for the people I know who I would not have known without AR. And at Christmas, I will be spending some time with one of my friends from here on the unique Florida island - Key West. Yes folks - Christmas is just 54 days away as I write this.

Then of course there is business. Yes I have received business just from being here. I have a listing right now which I am hoping to get a firm contract on today that I simply would not have without AR. Well worth the price of entry you could say.

And so the many hours that have brought me to this point have been a genuine voyage of discovery. I value my time here and I thank the AR gods for creating this place.

And now - because of my roots of course - Ladies and gentlemen -

THE BEATLES!

Simon, That was always one of my favorite Beatle songs, but watching that video , you think maybe they were partying a little before it was shot?
