I have been socializing up a storm lately... blogging here, tweeting there, facing here, linking there. It can be never ending and so addicting. It has been easy to sit in front of the computer and socialize away. I tend to eat and drink more too. Humm, this is not good, not good at all.
Since I have had more time at home recently, I have had to restrict myself from my social internet party. No more eating, drinking and relying on Internet socializing for my marketing. Oh now don't get me wrong... AR will always be my addiction, but I will be toning it down with all my other vices. I will not be the Biggest Loser in Real Estate!
So in order to loose 10 pounds;
I am going back to pounding the pavement.
I am going back to visiting Open Houses,
I am going back to passing out 10 cards a day,
I am going to "limit" my social/marketing network intake,
I will smile, chat, and enquire.... like I did when I first started and Active Rain was just a small community of 11,000 and "everybody knew your name".
Yup, I am starting over.
Whew, glad that I got that out, I feel so much better, part of some kind of real estate therapy I guess. ;)
My inspiration for this Blog has come from 2 Active Rain sources or should I say "Trainer Sources:
A blog by Joe Manausa ACTIVE RAIN MEMBERS EPITIMIZE SUCCESS
and another by Lenn Harley "DON'T REST ON YOUR LAURELS". Or, past success doesn't guarantee future success.
Both of these Blogs really got me thinking...two different view points but powerful information that we can all learn from. We can be thankful for all that the Internet has allowed us to do, but we can't forget our bottom line to get out, meet people and promote our services.
So folks, I am starting this "diet" tomorrow, because I have something to say tonight on the net, and also have a small glass of wine to inspire my writing.
But you may want to ponder this thought: If Internet socializing were to suddenly go away... would you survive?
