South Carolina, Are YOU on a quest to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?  Get Recognized? 

Active Rain Bow

This post is a result of two posts by my friend Richard Weisser down in Georgia.  The first post was "How do you expect to get drenched in the rain if you don't even want to get your feet wet?" dated 5/21/09 in which he offers 6 suggestions to those of us here in Active Rain.  In addition he also offers his personal guarantee "So, for those of you that want to succeed at blogging, I offer you this challenge. Before you throw in the towel, write at least one hundred quality posts before you make your value assessment. It takes that long to develop the correct skills and disciplines and also to create a body of content large enough to have a significant SEO impact on your business.  Now that is some guarantee wouldn't you say?  Richard then follows that post with another post titled "Achieving national celebrity status as a result of ActiveRain blogging becomes a reality! (of sorts)" where he talks about a recent interview with Realtor Magazine on line where he was interviewed about blogging for business.  So, IMHO, Richard is not only a celeb but one that knows where of he speaks.

With the numerous posts talking to newbie's here in Active Rain on how to be a success in their blogging venture to improve their visibility to the public I am setting out on a quest.  I am not going to suggest things to newbie's or those that are less active on AR; I am on a search for some of these folks for introduction to our AR family.  Here is my 3 step plan:

  1. Go on a state by state search and post between 5 and 7 people each Saturday
  2. Then you the MEMBERSHIP will be able to see and encourage them by responding to their most recent post
  3. A NEW qualification, the post must be done since January of this year.

The end result will be, hopefully, an increase in activity with more members becoming visible.  Now there is a really BIG problem with this plan.  I will not be able, my rule, to suggest those that have not done a post and posted their picture to their profile.  You see there won't be any secret agents, lenders, stagers, inspectors, etc. shown.  Sorry, if you want to be considered I need to see who you are, sorta like your picture on your business card.

Today I am looking at the state of South Carolina, where Active Rain has a total of 3298 AR members as of this morning.  I would say that Jim & Maria Hart Jim & Maria Hart #1 and Mirela Monte Mirela Monte #2 could have some competition coming up behind them.  So, say hello to:

Lisa PresnellLisa Presnell with Lowcountry Real Estate in Beaufort, SC.

Wendy ThomasWendy Thomas with Allen Tate Realtors in Rock Hill, SC.

Kurt ScrivensKurt Scrivens with East Coast Fractionals/Scrivens and Associates in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Beth RowlettBeth Rowlett with Healthy Realty in Charleston, SC.

Karla Valero VincentenoKarla Valero Vincenteno with AgentOwned in Mount Pleasant, SC.

Butch KnightnerButch Knightner with C21 Bob Capes Realtors in Anderson, SC.

Meredith McWhorterMeredith McWhorter with C21 Boling.com in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Be looking for your state coming soon to a post near you.  Next I will be off to  South Dakota; if you know of someone celebrating a birthday in South Dakota next week just email their name to me and I will acknowledge one person.

Please stop by and encourage these guys and gals and let's see if we can improve some of the participation.  Thanks for stopping in.

If you are looking for a very simple way to move up in your standings for the state that you live in, here are three small suggestions:

That rainbow is so vibrant, it looks almost too good to be real. I'm distracted by the picture. Now I have to go back and read your post. LOL

Don, I will have to agree with Lisa, that rainbow is almost too vibrant to be real. Did you take the photo...

JL,

I am sorry but I don't know the geography of SC so it would be hard to find highlanders.  But I did notice that you are around #3 in the state.

Posted by Don Rogers, Realtor, Broker, CDPE, GRI, OnullFallon MO & St Charles County MO homes (Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield) almost 10 years ago

William,

There are a good number of folks that are up and coming in SC.  I am sure that we will be seeing some new faces on the blogroll soon.
