Lancaster County PA Realty Check: We're 100,000 Real Estate Blogging Professionals Strong!

We're 100,000 Real Estate Blogging Professionals Strong!

Imagine a place where you could go daily to find the finest, most up-to-date real estate opinions and information.  A place where 100,000 of the best, most knowledgeable REALTORS, mortgage lenders, home stagers, virtual assistants, home inspectors, appraisers, title agents and more, share FREELY of their advice and secrets.

Of course, you don't have to imagine it.  You've found it!  www.ActiveRain.com now has over 100,000 members, most of whom contribute regularly to our ever-growing knowledge pool.

When I joined ActiveRain a year and a half ago, there were some 12,000 members.  Blogging was relatively new, but I had a suspicion that this platform, which made it easy to navigate the technical challenges of blogging, was going to be a popular place for both professionals and the public.  In any case, I thought it would be a good place to learn something, while finding my own blogging voice.

Boy, did I underestimate the unprecedented growth and popularity of ActiveRain!  There has been some 800% increase in membership since I got involved - not a shabby feat.  And the quality of the blogging, far from deteriorating with the huge increase in membership, has steadily grown more sophisticated!

Congratulations to the ActiveRain guys for the great success that their vision has produced.

I remember reading about Blogging the first time on Realtor magazine and the sound of that funny word was strange, but little did we all know it would spread like fire and do the amazing things it's doing.

Brian. I have been a member of different websites. When I found AR about 6 months ago, I stopped even visiting the others. You can find what ever you want in one place. Thanks Active Rain. Royal...

Jim, I think that we will be seeing more video, and outside blogs seem to be getting more popular.

Chris & Maria, I remember finding out that blog was a contraction of WebLog, and thinking that that was clever!  Seems like a long time ago...

Royal, I used to look at RealTalk and eProTalk.  I don't go to RealTalk at all any more, and I just skim eProTalk now.  ActiveRain has much more useful (and more easily searched) content.

It is really growing by leaps and bounds. One of the best things I have done in my career.

Trey, I agree.  If you look at my latest post, ActiveRain has literally changed my career.

I think you and I joined about the same time in early 2007 and what a change in my real estate career. Like you said the best of the business are here and friends I've met across this great country (Including yourself) has been amazing.

Todd,  the networking friends we've made can be as important as the business connections.  Thanks for your comments!
