Where Does The Time Go?

I like to use this re-blog feature that is offered here on Active Rain.  It allows others to read some of the informative blogs that are available here on line.  Here is another excellent article!

Original content by Deb "Alayne" Brooks

I have been here in the Rain, Active Rain that is, for 4 (four) years now. I cannot believe that it's been that long! It seems like yesterday that my husband said, "hey Deb, there's a cool blogging site for you to look at." My answer at the time was, "what's blogging?"  Seriously! I had no clue. After bringing up the site and discovering all the wealth of information, commeraderie, excitement and humor I just couldn't resist! Thus, my addiction. Active Rain.

I was scared half to death to post the first time. I had no clue what anyone wanted from me or what good it would do me or even why I was here! I have never been one to read "instructions".  I have always been the Bull In The China Shop that would rush right in even if something breaks. That's me.

All of a sudden, I wanted to know EVERYTHING that had to do with Active Rain. It was an immediate addiction even though I did not receive any comments~it just didn't seem to matter.  I wanted to learn, I wanted to write, I wanted to reach out to my clients and customers and tell them about all that was great in my area! I became caught up in all the friendships I was forming. I laughed, I even cried at times and I was so grateful to have found a home.

I immediately placed with my "blog", "post" in Google. I was shocked, amazed, and my business immediately began to increase. My first Active Rain phone call came only three (3) weeks after I began posting and placing. A nice lady at the other end of the phone said, "I would like to talk to you about listing my home". I asked the first and most critical question of the day, "where did you learn about me?" and guess what her answer was!  Yes!  "It's a site called Active Rain, she said. I was wondering if you could sell my home?"  

And, I did. Her home had been listed with another Realtor® for an entire year. Of course, I told her I could help. I listed and sold her home withing 45 days and received a check for over $6,000.00. What I am telling you here is that the first three months of posting on Active Rain paid me a lot of money! I had fun, created friendships, got my Marketing on Full Steam Ahead and life was good. I have been receiving calls and checks from more than just my posting since then. Referrals become a large part of our business and "posting practices".

I understand that Active Rain is about to Celebrate their 5 Year Anniversary and I want to say, "Thank You Active Rain" for being my Best Friend!

I so wish I could be in Seattle to help celebrate!


"Active Rain, You are the Best"


And, all my friends. YOU ARE AWESOME! And, yes, I am screaming. It's been five years? I don't get it?

Where does the time go?
