I know just how this feels. Our exchange server crashed two weeks straight. I never imagined how much business is conducted online by e-mail until it was gone. I began to miss the spam also... The Trouble With Email Tribbles.  Okay, just had to get that out of the way, because the title put it in...

ActiveRain has done wonders for my online marketing of my listings! I learned something after I posted my first property that I hope will be of use to all reading this. I learned how important it is to keep the listing up to date! Duh, you say.  If you have a price reduction, do a blog post! If ...
