Do You Sink Your Teeth into the Blog Post, or just grab a crumb or take a nibble!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Teri Ellis at Homes Arizona Real Estate LLC

Sink Your TeethPlease, please, please!!! For those of you who just throw something up on your post hoping to get some type of notice, STOP IT!!! Sink your teeth into your post. Put you into it!!! Otherwise, I, along with myriad others who do put our all into a post will not be stopping by to comment on whatever it is you are saying/not saying.

I am rarely at a loss of words, but today I am!!! In responding to Confused?comments on one of my posts, I found myself going to reciprocate, and what did I find? NOTHING about which to comment. Either it was something that had been copied in its entirety and posted or just had a bunch of useless information repeated for ten days in a row. For this type of a post, I am truly at a loss of anything to say. I refuse to say, "nice post," or "wow, very cool post you copied from the website," or "what do you think you are doing?" ;-) 

Here, on Active Rain, we have such a great opportunity to showcase ourselves, our writing skills, our knowledge of our market, and hopefully get the attention of other professionals who will think of us as a "professional" and you blow it!!! I've heard mention of this before in other blog posts, but I'm seeing more and more of it as I go to reciprocate! Again, I say, STOP IT!!!

Okay, now I feel better. Even though I am a HUGE proponent of reciprocating, if you don't see my comment on your blog post, now you know why! I want to see more TEETH!!! Well, obviously, I can't put this in any of the positive groups, now can I? ;-)

Teri, my pet peeve is members who post a whole series of blogs based on snippets from something we all have access to already, like a dictionary.

Vickie, how sweet of you to drop by. I will check out your post and let you know, BUT I thought your post about your brother was absolutely appropriate and seemingly well received. Our Active Rainers are a thoughtful and empathetic group. I was definitely NOT speaking about your post on this rant....I wouldn't have commented if I thought that. ;-)

Karen, thank you so much.....As you get known more and more, you will gain more and more subscribers who follow you around on the Rain. The more interesting, the better. Localism posts are great 'cause they bring you into your community - which, after all is what we're all about, huh? ;-)

Brian, yep I agree if their entire blog post includes the snippets about which you speak - but - sometimes we might like a quick link to something that we've missed?

Teri, the ones I'm referring to don't have links - they just include 4 or 5 definitions at a time, such as parts of a house or real estate terms...
