For Newbies Only: Tooting Active Rain's Horn - Round Numbers

Round numbers make me smile.  I don't know why.  I turned in early last night, and so here I am, wide awake at 3:30 in the morning, doing what I always do in my spare time - investing that time in my business relationships with great people like you through blogging.

This month marks my second anniversary with the Active Rain Real Estate Network.  I was at the bottom of the heap in July of 2007, trying to figure this out.

Everyone else was a giant, and I was a peon.  But I kept at it.  TLW's blog taught me to reciprocate - to comment on someone's blog when (wonder of wonders) they commented on mine. ...I can't find the TLW's post on reciprocation; somebody please leave an active link to in in your comment...

Margaret Woda was the very first person to comment on my first post, and she's become a friend I have yet to meet.

THANK YOU to Bob Stewart, Jonathan Washburn, and the rest of the gang who started, nurtured, maintained and grew this blogging community from a "hope so" to the powerhouse that it has become.

THANK YOU to Brad Andersohn for great "how to" posts like this one.

THANK YOU especially to you, for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by, read and comment!  I surely do appreciate you.

As Roy Peterson over in Waco, TX says in every post and comment, "Life is Good."
