Active Rain Gem: Poppy Dinsey (The Global Edge Top 100 Real Estate Blogger List)


What does  Global Edge, have to say about my girlfriend Poppy Dinsey? Our very own lovely and talented Club Chaos  SnarkyGirl darling from London, UK has made the coveted "The World's Most Powerful Property People - Top 100" list!

How cool is that? I think it's awesome!

Poppy D has also managed to come in at a tie with the Active Rain Real Estate Network for her Globrix blog. She and this network are both ranked in the top 10 at number 5! If you haven't read her Active Rain Thoroughly British blog, you are in for a sweet treat. If you haven't seen the SnarkyGirls videoblog, you may want to look up the definition of snarky / snarkism before you watch (LOL).

To quote Poppy D from her Globrix blog regarding her stellar international ranking: "Personally, I was thrilled (and somewhat shocked) to rank so highly. I think I now know how it feels when new bands hear their song playing in the background of the cafe in Eastenders for the first time, marvelous. I do have to add though, that I think one super-duper property blog was slightly cheated by not making the cut. I don't know how AgentGenius escaped the rankings, but AgentGenius is definitely worth adding to your feedreader."

I love Agent Genius. I love SnarkyGirlsLani Anglin-Rosales (Agent Genius) and Poppy Dinsey (Globrix) ROCK! When it comes to writing wonderful articles, savvy marketing, real estate blogging and search engine optimization, these Social Networking Divas are brilliant.

Hadn't heard the good news, but that is exciting. I enjoy all the same ones as you do, she is a hoot as is Lani. Thanks for passing on the news about her rankings.

I was intrigued that Active Rain made it to the top ten of that list ahead of some really big real estate players!!! Thanks,   Fran

Carolyn, Thanks for the education....I had no Idea that there were blog rankings of this kind.  Will definitely check out Poppy D and Agent Genius.

Missy, you are very welcome. I adore them, they are very talented ladies and lots of fun to learn from.

Fran, the team understands SEO and makes it very easy for those of us who do not grasp the concept to benefit from all of their hard work. Think about it. If every member once a week syndicates to three blogs at once minimum, imagine how much original content is being generated by this network. Now imagine if we posted every day. There are people like Robert Swetz who posts 20 per week. He blogs because he loves to share his photographs and his thoughts. He's not limiting himself to the point system, he doesn't care about the points. I once posted 17 posts in one week and had no idea I had done so. I didn't care about the points. I had a lot to say so I said it. With people like Robert and I around of course they're whipping butt! We're all here hanging out online running this machine 24 hours a day pumping content. I was more suprised that Poppy was giving the entire network a run for its money (ROTFL). My girlfriend is everywhere. She is a SEO Social Network Diva! ;-)

Jane, I bet you will enjoy them. I always pay attention to what site they are going to and learn all I can about what each one may or may not do for me. Poppy got me to join a few I never would have bothered with and it's been mad fun watching my Google juice increase while playing on-line with my friends and advertising my business ventures. I've signed several contracts to represent buyers and sellers as a direct result of being discovered on-line. A little over a third of my current clients are from the Internet.

Kristin, you are very welcome, sweetie. :-)

Elizabeth, please do. When you start to play with your video blog, you'll join Seesmic, 12 Seconds, YouTube and a host of other very useful places and have a blast. I'm working on "Minion TV" because I do an awful lot of fun and educational stuff with my kids. I'm looking forward to unleashing them on AR, YouTube and Seesmic (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Wow how can you not be a star with a name like Poppy Disney?  :-) Amazing - awesome show for her!  And I decided to sign up for the feed on Agent Genius because of a previous article you wrote.......I'll have to keep my eyes on that ball! :-)

Posted by Liz Moras Migic, Chilliwack, British Columbia - Realtor about 12 years ago

Carolyn, I like snarky girls, no I like non snarky girls, no I just like girls. Good feature.

Posted by Fred Chamberlin, Oak Harbor/Whidbeynulls, #1 Experienced FHA Mortgage Consultant (Guild Mortgage Co - Oak Harbor WA) about 12 years ago

Liz, too funny. I called her "Disney" for the first two months that we were friends (LOL). Shirley pointed out her name was "Dinsey" one day and I had to go edit myself and apologize. We were laughing about it for days because I had the entire Club Chaos writing to Poppy Disney instead of Dinsey and she never once said a word... When called on that little point Poppy D said she was so used to it she would quip that's how she saw her name anyway.  :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Fred. :-)

Liz, you will love AG and I'm glad you signed up for the feeds.

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) about 12 years ago

Whoo hoo!  I just commented on a blog earlier this evening from a guy who calls her "Disney" too.  My name is commonly mistaken with Celine.  Wish I had her money!

Posted by Celina Gleason (AgentOwned Realty) about 12 years ago

C. I like Poppy's blogs too. She is very talented.  Nice of you to feature her this way too. Thanks for sharing.

Way to go, bay-bay. I love what you are doing on-line Poppy D. You are my hero! Can't wait to hang out at Inman in NYC with you. Got some really cool foodie paradise spots for you to try out (LOL). Enjoy your day. Love, C.

Pam, thanks for the shout out to Poppy. Sharon, you are in for a treat. I've read every single post in her blog. Way cool. I love her photographer friend's artwork. We're gonna buy a Poppy modeling shot for our game room. :-)

Richard, we are soooo overdue for a game of phone tag. Email me when you have time for a conference call and let me know who else you may want to chat with so I can contact them and we can set up a time to host it. Mel will definitely have to be in on it. We absolutely adore your blog and chat about it and your darling pictures. I will be more than happy to explain it to you. Love, C.
