For a week now I have been 'pacing in my mind' regarding blogging. Or even going to Twitter and even keeping up with my outside blogs. Yeah, I've been a little busy (sometimes life is weird that way.....we work)
I couldn't wrap my mind around what I wanted to write. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. This has always been my place to write about what I'm going through regardless if it's a transaction, something I need feedback for or just plain life and the curve balls it flies me at the oddest times.
Please tell me, what's the POINT? by Carole Provenzale was written tonight...that I read.... which automatically made something CLICK in this mind of WooHoo Sally. Yup. Something weird made me look back in my blogging bank of posts.
About this time last year the California fires were blazing and on October 23rd, 2007 I wrote about the The Active Rain Passage to Mystery and this is when it really clicked. In that post I got rolling with how I feel about this network and the people I came to ‘know' who wrote wonderful posts. The ones I gravitated to.
All week I have been lax with blogging. I paid attention to closing a transaction last week and gearing up to close another next week. I'm gearing up to do an open house for a townhouse listing I have. Yet.....I was not sure what I was feeling about blogging. I was ....bored? Maybe. I was disinterested in many posts and found that I was clicking out of each one as quickly as I was clicking in.
I was looking for the quality ones. I was looking for quick reads that had tons of meaning. I read a couple fun ones. A few mindful ones. Yup. I was bored with what I was reading.
In that post The Active Rain Passage to Mystery I wrote the following:
I realized that the most profound thing for me on Active Rain are the real people who utilize this network for what it is. Real Estate Industry related topic with a touch of our personalities and a little bit of us. The REAL people who can not only write but talk from their hearts. The REAL professionals who know what this business is all about and extend a helping hand to those in need.
My Active Rain Passage to Mystery is ongoing with the caring souls who really make up this network. This is the Active Rain Family. The support we give each other as our peers, business associates and the ones who have become our friends. These caring souls that I have seen all over this network today to reach out to the ones in this crisis. This is real.
I welcome back.......
It was the so called professionals that chased her away....but if anything I do believe that this woman has conquered much in the way of life's curve balls and surpassed all of whom that cut her down when she had to give up real estate.
THIS is what I'm passionate about....the people behind the words.
THAT is what makes this a wonderful community.
