First Time for Everything: Thank you Active Rain.
First Time for Everything: Thank you Active Rain. As I was reflecting I wanted to say a few heart felt,thank you words.
Let me give you a little history: on August 28th 2008 I wrote my first blog post http://actvra.in/bvZ it was nothing spectacular and went under the radar of most of the Active Rain Community as well as the Readers of Blogs on the Internet. I was very proud of it, since it was one of my favorite Restaurants in Marina Del Rey, CA. Café Del Rey http://cafedelreymarina.com Georgina Hunter from Maui, Hawaii http://activerain.com/mauihunter welcomed me as a new member of the community. I thought it was very nice that she took time out and read my post. I wanted to Thank you Georgina, for your comment on my first post on Active Rain and first blog post ever. Thank you for giving me encouragements, which translated into many posts.
Many things have changed since my first post, and during this time many people have come and gone. I am still here and hope my writing has gotten better. I did not understand how to write posts, how to build relationships and how to develop leads thru blogging.
Thank you Active Rain, I have learned somehow just by reading other member’s posts how to write better (I hope) and even a bit about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Since that first post I managed to write 375 now with this post it will be 376 posts. Never in my wildest imagination did I think that I would ever write that much, or that I had that much in me. I have written just about everything, from Market Reports in Marina Del Rey, to giving advice to Buyers and Sellers.
I have received buyers, I have received international buyers, I have given referrals out. This all came from my blogging.
Now you wondering why are you writing this post? The Reason is clear as day to me I have made it to the First Page on Active Rain for California. Thanks to your comments that I have received, the recognition awarded by Featured Post, encouragement received and inspiration given all got me to Page one in California. So with that I wanted to thank all my unnamed readers and unnamed mentors who helped me to get here.
