A Whole Lotta Bloggin' Goin' On!

On June 10, 2007, I joined Active Rain and wrote my first post.  Today, I'm at RE Bar Camp in Philadelphia and when I signed on to AR and went to "My Home", I realized that my next post (this one) would be Number 1,000!

So here I am, learning about video, with James Downing (also blogging) on one side and Margaret Woda on the other.  And while I don't normally note these kinds of milestones, this is a pretty darned big one! 

It's a tribute to the highly addictive qualities of Active Rain.  And it's also kind of a journey for me - learning about how stuff is done in other parts of the world, improving my writing skills, getting into photography, and meeting some amazing people along the way, both on line and in person. 

Later -

It's now Thursday and I'm home from Philadelphia.  And before posting this, I thought I'd remember a few of my favorite old posts that I wrote and then sort of forgot about along the journey.

From July 16, 2007, my first post that was featured in Localism, How I Learned that Lead is Really Bad Stuff.  It tells the story of a buyer whose cat got really sick from lead poisoning during a renovation.

From July 26, 2007:  Type-A at the Beach talks about how technology helps us to have a better vacation.  Or does it?

August 25, 20007, I wrote Saints Preserve Us about the various patron saints who help us to find buyers for our listings and perfect homes for our buyers, with St. Anthony being my personal assistant in the matter.

On September 9, 2007, "Two Buck Chuck" as a Metaphor told the story of a major upset in the wine making world, as a bottle of Charles Shaw 2002 Shiraz won the coveted Double Gold Medal in the 28th annual Eastern Wine Competition, beating out 2300 wines, some of them quite snooty!

Perhaps my all time favorite was September 24th, 2007, Should You Let Carl Kasell Record Your Voice-mail Message?  Unfortunately, the guy it was meant for never read the post!  Oh well!

So to all of my blog buddies, I'm looking forward to the next thousand or so posts.  Blog on!

Congratulations Pat. 1,000 posts? That's a lot of writing. You are indeed one of my favorite bloggers. I like your style of writing. Hopefully one day I can become a good blogger/realtor like yourself. Much success to you. Great post.
