"In my first ActiveRain class my blogging teacher/hero/mentor, Ruth Vogt, helped me to get my blogging feet wet. I had gone into the class apprehensive, came out excited.

In the second class she described how I can link back to my website and create landing pages specific to the subdivision that I am blogging about. I had gone into that class wide eyed and looking forward to learning new tricks, came out an addict.

Yesterday was class #3. I went in armed with links, pictures, websites. Came out with a listing! WHAT - you say?? It's true!!

While I was in class "Brianne", a young woman searching desperately for a short sale Realtor, read one of my blogs, found my website and my information on short sales and emailed me. I was in the middle of class when I saw the email come through. Being the "good" student that I am not wanting to get off task by answering emails, I simply forwarded it to another agent on my team and asked him to call her.

He got hold of her right away and, well, she's coming in to sign all of her paperwork to list her home on Friday.

Needless to say - blogging is going exceptionally well."
