Real Estate Staging / Home Staging Blog


NBC picked up my blog... How do I EVEN BEGIN to thank Active Rain?!!!!

Today has been a day I will ALWAYS remember... and I have to thank ACTIVE RAIN for so very much of it.

Yesterday morning I discovered that NBC-5 TV in Dallas had picked up one of my recent posts from my "Pretty Blog" (which is my AR blog slightly re-constituted) and posted it on the station's website. I was flabbergasted. I was floored. I was thrilled. And I really wanted to thank Active Rain... However, my "thank you" was going to have to wait as I really wanted to also post my 3 Year Anniversary Post.

When I finally DID get  to post my thanks to Active Rain I was going to say that I could NEVER write what I do without having the audience they created for my words. You see if I was JUST posting my words out into that GREAT BIG WWW, I would never been able to write what I do. Active Rain brought this amazing COMMUNITY together where VOICES could share ideas, thoughts, interests and challenges.

BUT THEN... this story gets BETTER.

Tonight I was poking around and I discovered THAT ALL NBC sites in the NATION had my blog posted.

BUT THEN... this story gets BETTER.

MORE poking and I discover that TONIGHT'S NEW POST was also featured nation wide (List of NBC NEWS Stations Here).

THAT is 2 posts in 2 days!!!  

HOLY MOLY how crazy is that? I don't know what to think. All I can say is THANK you to my fellow Rainers... to all you who share so much of yourselves and "listen" to what I have to share. You make it so easy for me to share my words.

And again to the Active Rain Gods... THANK YOU. If ANYONE EVER wonders WHAT the power of blogging is or what it can do... send them my way.

Here are 2 links to 2 different NBC stations (Dallas and New York City) "featuring" 2 of my posts. I have NO idea how long they will be taking my feed.

 DALLAS: Click image directly to the left to go to NBC DALLAS Site, where I first found my  "Ugly 'R' Word" post.




OR go to ------->






 NEW YORK CITY: Click image directly on the left to go to NBC NY City Site, where tonite I found my  "3 Years Ago TODAY..." post.









Rain It Forward...


PS: To TOP this day off... TODAY is my 18 year Anniversary of being with the love of my life!

POST SCRIPT: My thanks to all those who have shared kind words in their comments can be found HERE.

Hurray for Craig.  Such a great guy and such an inspiration in the rain.  Craig, you are actually the reason I found the rain.  It was your post on being flexible working with seniors...or maybe it was the Photos LIE one...or maybe it was...well, you've done so many compelling ones.  No one of us deserves this recognition as much as you do.  congrats!!

You can't keep a good man down they say. For once, they are right. You could be the very person to really hit staging right out of the ball park.

So when Oprah invites you onto her show, you have to have one stipulation: that the audience must be filled with AR stagers!

I am going to show you how happy I am for you with my happy cat...

You Staged It Forward alright!
