My New Outside Blog

Featured Member Spotlight

Today was ALMOST like any other day that began with my usual ritual: cafe' au lait and opening MSFeatured Member Spotlight - Mike Mayer, i List For Less Realty Lafayette LA Outlook. The strong coffee helps me get through the usual messages of upcoming open house dates, new listing details and accompanying flyers, folks trying to sell me SEO rankings, and other such important communication.

To my great surprise and delight, my inbox contained a rather pleasant message. (Thanks Rena!). There in the ActiveRain Daily Drop was a photo of someone I recognized, ME! Grinning from ear to ear (both in the photo as well as in real life) I sat there happily dazed and feeling both honored and humbled to be the June 24th featured Member Spotlight.

My association with ActiveRain began last July 2010. I dove head-first-without-looking and began blogging heavily from the start until encountering a personal tragedy in September. My blogging took a back seat for 5 months while dealing with a very personal loss. I managed to make the New Orleans RainCamp in November but didn't renew my writing until March, 2011. Upon my return I blogged with fervor and have continued regular blogging, focusing on localism posts and a mix of AR Member Only topics.

My writing style is no doubt unique and challenging, and perhaps even a little controversial at times. I enjoy including my distinctive sense of humor and engaging my readers. No doubt it is my life experiences and environmental factors that have influenced my blogging creativity. I consider myself a blog "artist" and always write from the heart.

With focus and determination, my blogging efforts paid off. I managed to position myself as the leader in Lafayette, holding the #1 rank and have inched up to the #14 spot in Louisiana. I've also acquired referrals through my AR association and several prospects from localism blogs. ActiveRain is to be credited with my continued career successes.

My spotlight caption, "Mike knows the real estate industry is undergoing a revolution, not only in how its products and services are marketed and sold, but also in how consumers learn about, shop for, purchase and repurchase them." summarizes my approach to real estate. I was blessed to have entered this profession with a keen eye for detail, an open mind, and the ability to think outside the box. I've been a part of the technical revolution that has influenced and revolutionized the practice of real estate. The Greek composer Aesop wrote, "The level of our success is limited only by our imagination." This verse is profound for me. While I may not be able to direct the wind, I can adjust my sails.

With over 209,000 members and a great many with considerably more tenure and blogging experience on AR, my journey seems so insignificant to be rewarded with this recognition. There is an abundance of outstanding professionals here that provide a wealth of inspiration and encouragement. To those I follow and subscribe to, to those whose blogs I read and comment on, and to those who read and comment on my blogs, I offer my sincere gratitude and appreciation. THANK YOU! You have all been instrumental in my development and success.

And it would not be fair if I didn't take a moment to also thank the ActiveRain Staff who have faithfully been there to support and assist: Karli, Kerrie, Rena, Bob and Niki (sorry guys, had to thank the ladies first - it's a part of my southern gentleman influence and rearing). To you one and all, THANK YOU!
