This is not as easy as I thought it would be. I keep thinking about my friends. I think that if I had to write one then the Active Rain Group: Club Chaos would probably reflect the best thing that has ever virtually happened to me in the realm of social media. I love my little on-line family and had no idea co-creating that group would alter my life. I can not imagine my life without them floating around. We share an awful lot and really enjoy hanging out together in real life and cyberspace.
There are approximately 625 members in my virtual house. It's my home away from home and only a laptop, e-mail, IM, DM, FB, chat, Skype, tweet, fax and phone call away. The members inviting members keep it interesting. My personal e-mail is off the wall with fascinating behind the scenes chatter. ;-)
I have at least 35 people on speed dial from there alone. Got a question? I'm calling long distance without batting an eye. Need a change in scenery? Mangiggly the I-talian, Princess Paddy Pizappi and Melodious of Botting hand over the couch. They tell me when I'm being smart. The yell at me when I'm stupid. They stop talking to me when I'm really bad and spank me when I really need a smack upside the noggin to rattle my brain back into high gear. They hold the keys to my real estate heart and the only reason I am still in the game is because they make it fun to come to work every single day. They make it fun to share eye candy. They make me want to be a better person and they let me be exactly who I am (rumor has it a talented but anal retentive nut job running amuck in cyberspace who sometimes does real estate when she isn't painting, filming, making music, etc).
I love being a third generation high-jacker of blogs directly descended from TLW. How cool is that? Very. Without TLW Club Chaos would not be here. She taught Mandycap the fine art of jacking a blog. Amanda and Mel taught me. You all can thank Amanda Hall for quipping us into existence after Melodious took me under her virtual wings and straightened out my bad blogging habits. Yup. Was boring and careful, hiding behind the "ya gotta behave on-line and write market reports police." Except my comments did not match my blog. Mel caught that and wanted to know what the hell was the matter with me. God bless her, she e-mailed me into submission. Chicka doesn't quit when she decides to get to the bottom of something, so watch out people (LMAO). After my AR schooling and surviving a serious jacking, I dumped a bunch of groups, deleted a few posts and started over. What you read is what you get, flaws and all, which is probably why my e-mail is so very interesting. ;-)
Mel is the boss of me (LOL). Being bossed by Melodious is priceless. She's a smart cookie. If only you were a fly on the wall for those conversations (LMAO). I love the way Lenn Harley thinks. I love the humor of Laura Watts. I love the Wacked and Jacked crews and am very proud of how Diary of A Realtor is rocking the house. I absolutely love my bay-bays and am very excited watching them create and navigate stellar groups! The best part is seeing the connections evolve and watch the family's growth. We are all in this together and I am very happy to be here. ;-)
I think the best part of AR is the fact that I am free to be me with my friends. We rant, rave, compliment, contrast, complain, share home movies, toss in some eye candy, do a little serial commenting, write posts between playing games. Work does not feel like work at all. I enjoy social media and yup, I network a lot. Nothing like members connecting on multiple levels and nothing beats the friendships. (P.S. The sleepovers are pretty cool too. Where else can the little minions pick up a couple extra aunts and uncles? Seriously. BTW, the free food ROCKS!!! Yes, my peeps habitually feed me - LMAO)
Awwwwww hell, what were you expecting? Success is relative, bay-bay! I'm in love with people who love me. Doesn't get better than that. Seriously... :-)
