posting: JON ZOLSKY & JON KOLSKY GOT ME GOOD - 08/18/14 04:31 PM
These are two ACTIVERAIN people aka rainers who I have conversed with, like and enjoy and both express some good opinion and write decent posts and comments. I got a call one day from whom I thought was Jon Zolsky but was really Jon Kolsky or to be quite frank could have been the other way around. This sutff can play with your head
WHICH ONE?
I am going to play back with it. So, I visit with one of them via a post and comment forum and who I thought was the one I talked with never mentioned our most recent … (10 comments)

posting: MY POINT WAGON PULLED OVER - 08/17/14 09:27 AM
That's when it happened. I just pulled over to gaze or smell the roses and low and behold, Rainers on the point highway are coming up fast. They don't sleep normal hours, they eat while blogging, posting and commenting and at the end of the day...they rank and rule. Ahh, but you see I have rested up.
PATCHING OUT.....
I now have checked my rear view mirror, fastened my seat belt, turn signal on and I am flooring it onto the ACTIVERAIN POINT AUTOBAHN. While on the way, I get calls, clicks, views and make myself known in the world called cyberspace

posting: LETS PLAY ACTIVERAIN JEOPARDY WHERE THE QUESTION IS THE ANSWER - 08/15/14 11:23 AM
It is a brilliant game idea that involves your thinking in another way to participate in a question and answer forum. The premise is that they give you an answer and YOU must provide the question for the answer. If you do, you get points and money, fame and power follow. During this journey, it also becomes much fun too.
Here are some ACTIVERAIN jeopardy Q & A..for your amusement:
Answer: Has well over two million points on ACTIVERAIN and counting
Question: Who is Lenn Harley or Patricia Kennedy...either answer scores
Answer: Fined billions of dollars for financial fraud & misbehaving and still … (8 comments)

posting: BLOGGING IS AN ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARD - 08/14/14 07:47 AM
In order to do business, one must be in business. Posting and blogging says you are. So tell me, what is the difference between passing out your hard copy business cards at a mixer, gathering, business meeting, social or promotion and blogging, posting and commenting online and in cyberspace? Letting the public at large know YOU are here is the focus. We are just shifting or broadening how we do it
HI THERE!
I go to events and outings to promote myself and if you don't go, how will anyone know you are out there let alone what you can do and why … (6 comments)

posting: WHATS BLACK AND WHITE AND "RED" ALL OVER? - 08/13/14 08:30 AM
That one has been around for a long while. For those that have not heard it before, the answer was a NEWSPAPER. Notice how I said was. There is a new answer to that question. A POST! You are looking at one now. It is an electronic greeting or type of business card but it is definitely here to stay because it is the way ideas, points, products and services are introduced in cyberspace
DO YOU SPEAK E-TALK?
Posting is a type of e-talk. That's all. It is no different than taking what you would say to a neighbor, friend, family member, a client or … (5 comments)

posting: COMMENTS ON A POST OR BLOG - 08/11/14 01:18 PM
I welcome them and invite people to visit and chew the post with me and some don't and some do and all is well. Many times someone has commented using a point of view that I have not considered thereby causing me growth. I remain grateful for those lessons. Other times when people comment, they raise issues which allow me to further comment and in some cases, even make myself more clear
LIPS MOVE ON YOUR PICTURE?
Now a days, when someone visits with me and shares, I often look at their comment and then their picture and have no trouble relating the two. I wont go … (12 comments)

posting: WHEN I WRITE A POST I THINK OF YOU - 08/10/14 11:45 AM
I am speaking specifically of my subscribers. If someone has taken the time to read my post or blog and even comment and then wants to subscribe as a "follower", then I feel I owe it to them to create a certain level of posting and blogging. Its my way of saying thank you. I try to submit posts on subjects that will help create in us a better person or foundation and at other times to make one laugh at life and circumstances
SWEET AND SHORT
I like to share the many instances in the Real Estate business and I … (8 comments)

posting: I WONDER HOW THIS FEELS? - 08/06/14 08:22 AM
To wake up one morning and be able to spend 3.5 billion dollars. MMM, I wonder what I will buy today? Hey, there's something! It's Trulia and its on sale too! Only 3.5 billion? I'll take it. Of course in the small print, it says ACTIVERAIN is included without any additional charge free when you spend over 3 billion. Well, that's a bargain! Where do I sign? When do we close escrow?
AT THE SAME TIME...consider this too
How about this? Ran Right Realty & the Pearls Series of Books is having a garage post sale. Yes, you heard me. This is where … (0 comments)

posting: KERRIES KONTESTS KONTINUE TO KOUNT - 08/03/14 01:08 PM
If you want extra points, which boost ranking, camaraderie, child-like competition and satisfy the craving for getting something for your efforts, then entering in and participating in a contest is the way the go. Fun, fame, pleasure and you never know what you will hear or see for that matter. I encourage anyone to look into this and then I hope for you to join in
OH CONTEST... MY CONTEST
For those more daring, more giving and who want to share the love in their own way, apply to host your own contest idea. You have not lived fully in the Rain until you have … (2 comments)

posting: ZILLOW WAS PLANNING THEIR MOVES ONE YEAR AGO FOR ACTIVERAIN - 07/31/14 04:28 PM
On September 21st 2013, I was visited by ZILLOW undercover agents who were gathering data in regards to their future growth and potentials. They found out about me because I was an ACTIVERAIN active blogger. A RAINER! Someone hire up said...find out what you can from this guy...Here is the original posting....enjoy
ANOTHER DAY OF POSTING BLOGGING AND COMMENTING..coming to an end
I remember nothing clearly but somethings remain. It was late and I dozed off with laptop logged in to ActiveRain. I remember reading blog after blog, writing drafts, commenting and even posting and then nodding in and out. Then, a … (10 comments)

posting: EVEN THE MOST STUBBORN HAVE GOTTA LIKE THESE ACTIVERAIN CHANGES - 07/29/14 08:02 AM
I never realized I was squinting all this time until now. NO MORE! I get to SEE all my favorites faces and more without any effort when blogging, commenting and posting. Being larger than a thumb looks good on everyone. If that doesn't make you blog happy, being able to like and follow as well as get extra points for commenting just create a cherry on top of the post sundae
PROBLEM & SOLUTION
Keep in mind that it took time, effort, feedback, input, interaction, complaints and tenacity on many peoples parts to bring us all to this stage. So, the system works if you … (13 comments)

posting: WHERES THE YOU? - 07/21/14 08:30 AM
If all roads lead to Rome, then Rome has to live up to its reputation. Behind every post, comment and blog, there should be a person who wants to make a point, a mark or leave a signature of some special kind and purpose. One would assume that even in business or personal realms, that effort would be relevant and substantial.
BRING OUT THE BEST
Is it any different than a greeting when meeting or leaving with someone? Do we want to give and receive the minimum or milk the best of the situation? Anyone who uses the occasion of a gathering to … (2 comments)

posting: TAKE A MONKEY A TYPEWRITER A ROOM AND SOME INCENTIVES - 07/16/14 04:04 PM
You have heard this before. If you took X amount of monkeys and put them in a room with X amount of typewriters (today its laptops), sooner or later, they will learn to type and intelligently too. Throw in some Shakespeare and you will get a good copy sooner or later so the statistical genius, infinity theorists and anything is possible groups swear
MY EARLY WORLD
Well not too long ago, lets say prior to me joining ActiveRain, I didn't know how to blog, comment or post etc. I was the early blogger man, a real Neanderthal poster and comment-er who wandered the earth hunting and gathering but not at my full … (3 comments)

posting: ITS ONLY THREE A DAY RELAX - 07/16/14 03:59 PM
On those 20 posts a week that have gotten everyone's attention good, bad and ugly, it helps if you employ some spider sense as I call it. The spider, who walks on walls, ceilings and floors, when asked her opinion on something said, well it depends on how you look at it. That's what I want to submit to you. Its a point of view
20 REDUCED TO 3..
First off, the cliche "the journey of a 1000 miles starts with one step". There, I have said it and I hope I set the tone for what is coming. Twenty posts a week for … (25 comments)

posting: STOP THE POST I WANT TO GET OFF - 07/10/14 01:02 PM
LOL...Look... I hope that everyone is blogging, commenting and posting for fun, business and pleasure as well as networking and of course fine tuning and honing their skills and talents. Lets not work our keyboard fingers raw to the bone as Cinderella's wicked step-mother and sisters would have us do! NO. Find the positive and meaningful point (pun) for doing what you do and then do it
LEARNING TO BLOG
I remember when I signed up to ActiveRain and wanted to learn how to comment, post and blog and nothing else and that to me was daunting in and of itself. It took a while for me … (0 comments)

posting: TWITTER HAS AN INTERESTING WEEKLY REPORT - 07/08/14 12:19 PM
Just over the last few weeks, I have been getting reports from Twitter telling me what posts people liked, what got the most hits and which ones were favored or re-tweeted. This is good feedback similar to what clicks, comments, and views does here on ACTIVERAIN. It lets us know what people find interesting to comment on
ITS FEEDBACK
Google analytic does the same thing as it lets you see who hit you from where and on what topic. None of this is an exact science because all moments, days and audiences change constantly. It is when it all lines up and presents itself that we get a chance to assess … (2 comments)

posting: POINTS FOR BLOGGING CAN MATTER - 07/01/14 01:50 PM
Having a gimmick go to work for you is like stumbling on a gold vein...If properly handled, it can turn into a mother lode. Allowing people to trade in points for rewards and goodies thus making them want to earn more will cause a tremendous spike in success and who knows what else...Opportunities like this come when they come...
FREE? WHERE? HOW?
Think this through. If someone has reached 500,000 points, then they get to play in the rain for free! Many find that out and go blog nuts to get there. When starting toward this worthy goal, time moves ever so slow … (2 comments)

posting: SOME POSTS REMIND ME OF THE SUNDAY PAPER - 06/30/14 12:30 PM
I enjoy the Sunday paper. It is designed to go along with Sunday which is to be enjoyed without hurry or pace and sipped instead of gulped down like Monday through Friday can be. The Sunday paper has a lot of everything going on in it including fillers, promotions, advertisements and miscellaneous articles
FOCAL POINTS
Quite a bit of it I discard because I am not interested in everything but only select things. Which reminds me: I couldn't help think about some of the posts that I click on and visit and how busy they are. They have so much data and instead of having … (7 comments)

posting: POSTING BLOGGING COMMENTING are ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARDS - 06/30/14 07:25 AM
That's what we are all doing when we enter into cyberspace and blog, comment or post. We are in affect giving out or sharing our contact. Some do it to socialize while others to build their business. Whatever the motivation, it is the established way to know and be known in today's interactive world
BEING KNOWN
Whoever the target audience is, when we post, blog or comment, we are allowing others to experience how we think, feel and conduct ourselves and a variety of subject matters. The more you share, the more of a comfort level takes place. Intimacy takes place when we share what and who we are

posting: ONE ROUND TRIP TICKET FOR CYBERSPACE PLEASE - 06/27/14 08:01 AM
I have to travel into and about cyberspace and ACTIVERAIN is my ticket to get there. That's all I know and have been doing this for years now. I needed a Internet presence to promote myself, my business and share some points of views. In addition, I often come across some interesting situations that I like to blog about and promote
ALL ABOARD
For getting online, ACTIVERAIN certainly made it easy to do. I remember first seeing how everyone else was doing it...IT being posting, blogging and commenting. Then, I signed up and got my feet wet. When I felt certain about what … (10 comments)
