I've Always Said I Learn Something New at ActiveRain Every Day and It's Time I Showed You.  April 15 - April 21, 2012

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  

Conrad AllenApril 15: Conrad Allen   Albino Alligators and Hole in Ones

You’ve seen my pics of alligators here at Green Cay but I’ve never seen an albino alligator!

noemi cardosoApril 16: Noemi Cardoso  The Fable of Fear and 3 Simple Steps to Conquer It.
You’re a better person than I if you’ve never had to confront fear....either in your professional or personal life.  Read Noemi’s post and bookmark it for that next time.  

michelle molinariApril 17: Michelle Molinari    My  BEST Awkward Space Staging Tip
Michelle showed us an excellent way to show the possibilities of those awkward spaces that some homes have.  I’m definitely remembering this tip!

April 18: Al & Peggy Cunningham  Not an ActiveRain Meet Up But an ActiveRain PhoneUp
I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to several here at ActiveRain but I must confess not as many as I’d like to.  Sometimes it’s been a matter of just sending an email but there’s something always missing in that.  

ginny gormanApril 19:  Ginny Gorman  Text Enhance -Invading ActiveRain..Are You Checking Your Blog Links?
Ginny had an issue with mysterious links to in her blog post but the answers also lie in the comments.  Be sure to read through them.

amy jonesApril 20: Amy Jones- Will Your Computer Connect to the Internet After July 9th?
If you’ve not read about this you might want to.  USA Today also carried an article on this.  And guess what...I googled “connecting to the Internet after July 9th” and Amy’s post on ActiveRain was in 3rd place.

leslie ebersoleApril 21: Leslie Ebersole   What to Do When Things Go Pear Shaped.
Leslie wrote an interesting post on our blogging etiquette.   She makes a good point about keeping our disagreements on a professional level.

Fernando- every week I see many good posts that I’ve missed even though I feel like I’ve spent a lot of time at AR.

BARFF- you are so BARFF....

Debbie- the easy part is finding and reading the posts; the hard part is narrowing it to one per day.

Emily-very sweet of you.  Hope I provided the service for you.

Dorie- am very happy to do it!

Richard- And thank you for the “Whacked” feature!

Erv- I’ll keep ‘em coming as long as you’re there to read them.

Ginny- I knew people here would have a solution!

Amy- I was very happy to feature your post and thank you for subscribing.

Dick- You’ve made my day!!! Thanks for the feature in my favorite group.

Lyn- be sure to read Amy’s post about protecting your computer.

Conrad-I’m glad you did!  I would never have known there was an albino alligator.

Joanna-If I can find just one post that someone missed during the week, then I guess I’m doing what I wanted to do.

Roy-I enjoy putting this together and yes, I have my camera in hand.

I love this series that you post.  It is a great digest for others to just skim through the garbage and get to the meat of learning something new.

I can't believe it, but I actually read most of these posts.  I have not read the post by Amy Jones.  Have to check to see if it is an end of the world blog.
