Hello. I'm relatively new to Active Rain (joined on February 2, 2009) and am still figuring things out. I have a question about whether I should be posting my blogs as either available to the Public or Members Only.
As you know, you need to make a "Visibility" designation when you post a new blog, and the two seem most viable to me are the "Public" and "Members Only" ones.
I understand that blogs made available to the "Public" can be viewed by anyone and that the "Members Only" blogs can be viewed only by members of ActiveRain. Is there an advantage to designating blogs as "Members Only"? Are real estate professionals more likely to find them if I do? Are people more likely to post a comment if they think that only other members (and not the public) can view those comments?
I'm just wondering what is most effective. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance for any guidance. This is an incredible site, with lots of great advice.
