addicted to activerain: Update: Fix For Some of the Issues from Our Recent Release - 09/30/13 06:22 PM
Put the pitch forks down guys..... here's the latest  from ActiveRain and the latest updates.  If you're new to AR, you'll learn that AR does listenand they do make every effort to fix things when they can. 
Please read on and see what's been fixed.   Hey..... even Apple had to send out a fix to the iOS7 update a few days after it was released. 
I'll start with a blanket "I'm sorry". The changes we recently made, especially to the blog editor were not met with the excitement we had hoped. (understatement of the year). Had there been no bugs, I'm … (0 comments)

It’s a Small World After All!   (This must be my Disney-themed week)

I tuned in to listen live to Margaret Rome’s weekly radio program today because I’m usually not able to listen at Noon Sundays (EST).  And Carra Riley was going to be her guest so definitely wanted to listen.
 
Have you listened to Margaret’s radio show?  Well, let me tell you what a small world it can be.  
Carra Riley can dance circles around the social media crowd.  She offers a wealth of knowledge about how to make your presence known, whether it’s on Google+ or Facebook … (13 comments)

What do cheese curds and the ActiveRain community have in common?
 
Well... not much really except that were it not for reading about cheese curds in a recent post
by Sally and David Hanson and featuring it in my weekly “What I learned at Active Rain” series, I might never have had the opportunity to speak with Sally Hanson over the phone nor would I have had to opportunity to try these:

 
Yesterday a package arrived and guess what was in it?  Cheese curds....taco, natural and ranch!

And, you can guess who sent them!

Roger made his Millionaire Post "Members Only"and it has been Featured however if you have not yet gone to his post I hope you will head there and congratulate him for becoming the latest ActiveRain Millionaire.  
Roger and I became friends after we noticed each other's comments on the posts of others.  I remember I headed over to his blog to see who he was.   He is funny and sincere; irreverent and thoughtful.  His journey here has not been an easy one.  When I first started reading his posts I suggested that he become a Rainmaker so that  the public … (15 comments)

Meet Brian Feldman! Jupiter-Tequesta Realtor-New ActiveRain Member!
 
I met Brian at our ActiveRain MeetUp in April and have to tell you what a good sport he is.  His “mentor” Mark Loewenberg had texted me before he arrived that he had told Brian that as a new Active Rain member he would have to recite the ActiveRain “motto” ( or something like that).  Mark let Brian off the hook after he arrived, but I have a feeling that what I mistook for shyness was really Brian’s effort to figure out what the heck the AR motto was and how could … (15 comments)

I've spoken to my clients when providing a staging consultation and often get the feeling that the agent that represented them in the past didn't keep in touch.  They told me but not their agent.  Jennifer Allen  lists some good points that your sellers may notice but never mention to you.  Read on and please drop by Jennifer's post to comment. 
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog called: "How to Wow Your Seller - The Favorit-est Tips" where I listed the results of a little survey I did following a SWS Teleseminar on the subject of knocking the sox off … (0 comments)

WCR Palm Beaches- We Had the Most Remarkable Speaker Today! Let Me Share Her Tips.
 
At our monthly business meeting of the Women’s Council of Realtors Greater Palm Beach Chapter we were privileged to have as our speaker Christine King.   Christine is owner and President of Your Best Fit but her story begins almost 17 years ago when she was seriously injured in a Jet-Ski accident.
 
Unable to feel her legs as she was being removed from the water, Christine and her family did not know if she would ever walk again.  Her lower lumbar vertebrae exploded in … (28 comments)

OK you points mongers.... just kidding.  Bob Stewart has another challenge for us, and the really "big deal" about this is that all of us can benefit from it.  Who doesn't love and want a referral?  Are you doing what you can to get them?  Do you have your tried and true way of getting referrals?  Share them and, yes of course... points are involved!!! 
The "Aha" (OK, it wasn't really an "aha", it was more of a 'dang, that many?')
In a webinar recently about (link to recording of the webinar) generating seller leads, I opened the discussion by asking the audience … (0 comments)

Senior moment, busy or just so much to see!  
 Charita Cadenhead commented on my Sunday weekly post that she thought she had already read and commented on Mike Cooper’s post on safety but apparently she didn’t.
 Been there... done that.  Come on, don’t tell me you haven’t.

addicted to activerain: How Long Does It Take To Write A Post? - 04/16/13 10:47 AM
Toni Weidman writes an excellent post on how long it takes to write a post.   Some can crank them out in minutes.  I am not one of them but I do wish I were.  Every post takes a different amount of time.  Sometimes I labor for a long time, leave it in draft and have to return to it.  Sometimes I feel as if I haven't a thing to say.  
Also, do you know the difference between a post and a blog?    Read on!

Yesterday I reached 1 Million points.... 1,000,000 smackeroos!  What makes it so memorable is not  
so much the “MM” beneath my name  but the journey to get here.
For those of you who’ve spent any time here at all you’re no doubt shaking your heads with a knowing look.  You know exactly what I mean.  
 My journey has taken me from clueless to communicative via my blog that I write.   
It has taken me to places like Kirkland Hills, OH to Vernonia OR..... from the beautiful Kentlands Community in Gaithersburg MD to NW Austin, TX.
