Who Spilled the Paint?

By
Real Estate Services with Compelling Media + Design

Change was in the air this weekend around the ActiveRain playground, and it had nothing to do with the hamsters going on strike.

If you subscribe to Brad Carroll, you may have done a double-take when you went to his blog this weekend. Or at least checked the URL to make sure you hadn't left ActiveRain. Brad found a way to give his blog a totally unique look, made some modifications, and then shared it with the community.

Fast forward a day from discovery, and Brad had turned this process automatic - check out The Active Rain Custom Blog Generator

The ActiveRain community moves fast, and the look and feel of the site and member blogs is changing before our eyes. Here are some of the early adopters:

What do you think of these new developments? Will you be changing the color scheme of your AR personal space?

From the comments so far, this seems to be a popular idea. What's your take?

Hi Leesa - you were one of the originals! Quite a movement has begun, and it's been less than a week! Great job on being one of the first to begin the momentum -

Julie - I really appreciate the kind words. I've learned so much from others members - it's my pleasure to feature some of the great work above

Kelly - Good luck with your Mothers Day Walk in support of Breast Cancer Research on May 11 in Tulsa.

AR Members: Read more about the Tulsa Y-Me Walk to Empower and support Kelly in her walk with words of encouragement, or better yet - donate to Breast Cancer Research in your local area
