7 Year Itch -- No Way! Blogging and Loving It!

In researching my history for another blog post this week regarding the power of ActiveRain networking, I realized that June 6 marked the 7 year anniversary of my very first (a positive re-blog of someone else's content as I learned the ropes here ) post on Active Rain. Wow!

During that time, I've written or posted  over 1175 blog posts, been READ or at skimmed! almost 2 million times....(wow, does that make me an author!) and amassed over 600,000 points.  In ActiveRain speak that helps with subscription costs, list-topping, and other behind-the-scenes details.  (For the public, if you figure 225 points for the average blog, or 100 points for logging in each day, of 6 points for a comment on your blog, etc. etc. you can see it's a lengthy process to add up to over 600K...)

I've had my high-yield months with 30+ posts, and some months with just 2, based on vacations, clients, illness, etc.  Life goes on, and all that, but taking the average, I posted about 13-14 times a month over the past 7 years.

It's been pivotal for my business, instrumental in the many, many referrals that have occured both incoming and outgoing, and...imagine the internet clogged up with all those words!  Folks looking for information on Marana and Tucson Homes for sale, Horse properties for sale, Realtors in Marana, etc. often find me through Google!!!  I can tell you first hand, it's exciting when a new client calls to say they've found me through the Internet.

If you like writing, or taking photos, or being a community ambassador, or a perpetual tourist for your area - I urge you as real estate agents to discover ActiveRain.

Use Active Rain to Find a REALTOR!

If you are a home buyer or a home seller and want to look up agents in your area, check out the lists...check out the names, check out the blog posts to get a feel for the different personality types out there.  We all have criteria when hiring folk - and ActiveRain is a great resource to you in that arena.
