A number of years ago, I stumbled across AR while doing some research on a specific topic and printed out the post.  Perhaps a year later, I again came across AR again and at that time, I looked into AR, started reading it regularly as a non-member and ultimately signed up a few months later as I determined how I could use it for my needs.

For real estate blogging both reaching real estate professionals and potential clients you can't beat the SEO of ActiveRain. I still use a Wordpress blog as well for my personal blog
