I've been away from the ActiveRain and the Blogosphere for the past few days and I want to ask Bob Stewart if his latest Hyperlocal Contest was designed to keep us all so busy we won't be clogging up the servers?
It took me about 3 posts to completely understand what the hyper-local contest was supposed to teach me... so I started over and then it happened ~ Shazam! The phone hasn't stopped ringing and I've been running like a race horse...ok, maybe more like a race donkey, but you get my drift.
I'm not complaining, mind you... although I did change my ringtone because I was getting sick of hearing the same ring 100 times a day AND I would like to sleep more than 4 hours AND I'd like to eat more than a yogurt and 3 pretzels in a day, but hey~ that's the price you pay when your hyper-local blog posts lead to 3 listings and 5 buyer contracts in 4 days.
I really want to continue in my quest to complete my last 3 hyperlocal blog posts for the contest....BUT...just a little part of me asks "do I dare open that google juice firehose even more?" Exciting in a scary sort of way.
So what am I doing here? I have closed my door and silenced my phone for an hour as I ease into my place of Zen. Sitting in front of my computer with my windows open as I blog to the tranquil sounds of my gurgling courtyard fountain. Yes, this is my happy place and I am already feeling recharged.
Ok...I'm going to do it. I'm going to go ahead and post hyper-local post number 5. Pray for me.
