A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking the Lunch and Learn on Blogging at Sacramento Association of Realtors. I wasn't sure what to expect, as I've been on Active Rain for about a year now, posted a few blogs with the help of my husband Joe and thought: there must be something more.
Where do the writers get their inspiration? How many blogs can you read about staging and how you NEED to do it. Is that going to make my phone ring for business? Active Rain can generate business for you, but more importantly it's a community of professionals willing to share their experiences.
Don't get me wrong I appreciate all those who on a consistent basis share their wealth of knowledge with others here on Active Rain, Thank You!
Our instructor, Paula Swayne, who's got her own blog on her website, and blogs regularly on Active Rain, shared some great tips about how to get your inspiration. Short short and simple - JUST START WRITING!
One key point she shared was about your profile and how important it was to create a profile that is YOU! Fellow Active Rainers like to get to know YOU, this is a community of great expertise and knowledge but it's the 'behind the scene' stuff we really enjoy reading!
With that said, I've redone our profile to give you a better insight to Joe, myself, and our familly. Thanks Paula for the inspiration and taking time out of your busy schedule to share with us! Hope you enjoy our new profile!
