I do see some under-appreciated blogs from time to time.

Good to promote them a bit...

  • Reblogs
  • Write a post about them
  • Or do what you did here.

I will go check them out right now, thanks Carol!

In ActiveRain, it takes participating and commenting on other blogs to get attention to your blog.  Some, who only post may have a good following by readers, but will not be getting much attention in terms of comments.

I think there are several, but the content may not warrant our attention or comments at the time. I like that some of the AR members post their favorites at the end of the week and I am able to catch up on the ones I have missed.

I am enjoying reading Kevin Morris, a new Rainer from the Carribean who is a Realtor in PA. He just started blogging, and I find him interesting in pointing out the difference in houses and culture from his native land.

See some of these guys are doing their mini-commercials in the Daily Drop which annoys me to no end.

There are plenty of great blogs that don't get the attention they deserve but they are not on AR.

I read several that don't get much activity. It is more about the giving and taking with leaving comments that gets comments in return. I will check out the Property Minders. Thanks for the recommendation.

I noticed that those who comment to other posts gets most of the comments themselves. If a blogger posts a great staff but does not participate in AR community life, it is unlikely those posts will get a lot of attention.

That is most likely a website designing service. Actually not far away. We have just 800+ agents in this small town less than other overcrowded towns here.

It needs to have a strong realtor and customer presence to get the attendtion needed.....

I saw your reblog earlier, they do have some good information. "liking" their posts is also a good idea to get them some attention.

Carol Williams - never thought in that way....

I always re-blog something that I like. Yes, sometimes I get more comments than original ones - however, the idea is to spread the good message of the 'lost' blog.
