Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : My 500th Post in the Rain, Active Rain Success Story!

My 500th Post in the Rain, Active Rain Success Story!

When I realized that this number was up I was petrified. To worry about any of my postings or words had never been a challenge until now. I kept worrying about just HOW to post about something so momentous in my life. Active Rain has become a total part of me; A part that completes WHO I AM. I have learned to depend on this platform for so many reasons yet I can only put a few of them into words. I found that I was pondering daily just how AR has affected me. In no particular order here are a few of my thoughts...


  • I begin almost each day with a cup of coffee and visiting posts on the dashboard.
  • My visits to the Rain are multi-dimensional.
  • I visit to see the faces of friends that have become so important to me.
  • I visit to learn about the Real Estate business.
  • AR has seemingly become a strong support system.
  • When I have questions many people are there with answers.
  • Active Rain taught me to blog. Step by step.
  • They have provided the PERFECT PLATFORM to grow a business.
  • Because of AR's creation we are all gaining a strong presence on the web.
  •  Because of them I have laughed.
  • Because of them I have cried.
  • Because of them my business has increased and maintained in a turbulent economy.
  • I have made friends that will remain friends forever.
  •  I have received referrals that help to financially support me.
  • Clients tell me they already know me when they call for my Services.
  • Active Rain has given me a new found confidence in my Real Estate business.
  • I have been able to share with people that care.
  • Through this platform my world became much, much smaller.
  • My business has improved.
  • My life is better than I could ever have imagined.

Deb, AR has become a part of my life also.  Unlike you it is the way that I end my day.  I don't even allow myself to get on the rain until the end of the day (LOL). It is a wonderful day to end my day though!
