January is My Active Rain Anniversary - 2 Years Later on Active Rain...

By
Real Estate Agent with Crye-Leike REALTORS® 165062

Active Rain MilestoneJanuary is a milestone on Active Rain for me.  It marks two years of active Blogging which I joined active rain on 01/06/2007.  As January starts to come towards a close this year I can take a look at several radio, television, and newspaper interviews that were a direct result of my Blogging Active Rain.  I sold my own home as a result of a Blog on Active Rain in 4 days, I received a few referrals, and gave out many referrals to other Active Rainers.  I am very satisfied with the results of my efforts.  If times were better, I know the return would be much greater.

January also allowed me to surpass 400K in AR points, a technical milestone for 2 years on AR.  I find the most important thing on Active Rain is reading, and gaining more knowledge.  That is my idea of social networking.  It is visibility, and recognition of others and their abilities.  I have made many new friends since I have joined Active Rain, and my life is much richer for the knowledge they freely share.

Thank you Active Rain!

Susan Haughton Alexandria, VA REALTOR® (Long & Foster REALTORS® Old Town Alexandria) Thanks.  I also feel that AR would be one of the most fantastic tools if the market was better, but I also expect at sometime things will be much better and this should be a great way to gain a lot more business.

Jim - Congratulations!  Both the longevity and points totals are milestones to be proud of.  Like you, I believe that the ability to gain knowledge and to have open discussions is the greatest benefit of this site.  I have read many of your posts and while I haven't always agreed, you consistently make me think about ways to be better.  Thanks!

Erik Hitzelberger, --Louisville-Bullitt County Real Estate (RE/MAX Alliance)  Thanks Erik.  I also believe the dialog is great, and keeping an 'Open mind" is even better.  There are many subjects that some of the conversations here have swayed me to rethink positions, and allow a different personal stance on them.  That is a good thing.  If you have a difference of opinion, please share it.  That is all how we personally grow.

Thank you to you, Jim!  I have come to look to you as my "blog broker"!  You are well-written, and your posts about everything from the economy to the lessons of the current real estate market always seem to be very timely for what's on my mind.  I am not at all surprised to see how many have subscribed to your blog or that you have reached such a lofty points standing in the 2 years you've been in the "Rain".  Thank you again, and congratulations for such a milestone!

Congratulations on your milestone. I just achieved 100,000 points, and it took a lot to get there, I started slow, just "lurking" in the background, then started to pick up speed. Where you are right now, I'd have to move at warp speed to even get to that level.

I like your posts, too. Chockful of good information, as well as thought-provoking.

Happy blogging!
