Oh no, not another gold star. Please, no more gold stars!
You know the story of Bre'r Rabbit don't you? If not go read it, I will wait for you.
In Active Rain, if you are NOT lucky, your post winds up featured.
You get lots of comments, but then you have to take the time to answer each one.
I suppose I could answer them all like a true Type E and say to everyone, "Thanks for the comment." But I don't think people will like that; this is not how to make friends on AR. We need to be answered, and I really need plenty of time to answer each person's comment in depth.
But it's like being caught in a briar patch - the more you do, the more stuck you are. It's messing up my time management. So please, no more gold stars while my business is so brisk.
For now, I need to learn how to write a really good post to get the information out there, but one that is not featured. In fact, I don't know why Broker Bryant and all the other really good bloggers havn't caught on to this yet!
He and a few others are so unlucky that their posts get a gold star every single time. So sad because they have to answer hundreds of comments.
So the trick is to write a post that you are sure will not get a gold star. Write it good enough, but not so good that it gets featured, and then you won't have to worry about taking so much of your valuable time responding.
Ah ha! I think I have this AR blogging figured out. Now I'll have an advantage over all the other really good agents. Let them keep writing featured posts. Let them take time to answer comments (and get no points for it), and I'll have time to go list and sell houses. Yes!
Please, no more gold stars!
