I would have never imagined back on July 7th 2006, when I wrote my first blog post, that someday I would be writing my 200th. But here it is, number 200. I've been trying to think of something earth shattering to write about today but it just ain't happening. But you know, that's OK. My plan since day one on ActiveRain has just been to do the best I can and to try and share as much as I can.
I'm by no means the smartest REALTOR® or the best REALTOR® but I have always applied common sense and a good work ethic to my business. And I've done the same with my approach to blogging on ActiveRain. I think I've been pretty consistent with my posts. I write about what I know and I write in simple language so everyone can understand. I don't do negative, so all of my posts have had a positive theme to them. I hope I've helped some folks with their business and I hope I have given the consumer a reason to want to work with me.
I know I've made some friends along the way and I've probably made some enemies, as well. But that's OK too. One thing I have learned in life is that you can't control what other people think about you or how they react to you. All you can really do is strive to be the best that you can be and always keep moving forward.
When I joined ActiveRain I was approximately the 600th member. At that time there may have been about 40 or 50 of us that were blogging and it was a pretty tight group of folks. We had a lot fun. I never imagined there would be over 16,000 members eight months later. Things have changed quite a bit since then. But that's OK. Change is good. Embrace it.
One thing that hasn't changed is my style. I try to instill a little seriousness, a little knowledge and a little humor, in everything I write. It's not really a conscious effort but more a reflection of how I am and how I live my life. Some folks like it and some folks don't. But again, there's nothing I can do about that. I am who I am, for better or for worse. I don't believe in putting on airs. With me, what you see is what you get. I truly hope that I have inspired someone or helped someone be better at their job.
The purpose of this post is to thank everyone that has supported me by reading and commenting on my posts. It does make a difference. Knowing folks are reading gives me an incentive to keep at it. I'm looking forward to my next 200 posts and hope that you are too. I hope I can continue to give you useful information. I hope I can make you think and I hope I can make you smile, every now and then. So cheers to all of you!!!
What better time to share with you, than now, the many faces of Broker Bryant. Enjoy!!!
