I'm Hanging Out At Inman With Audrey and Meyer

Geez. This place is not what I expected (LOL). The elevators look like something out of Tron (LMAO). I'm chilling in the Atrium on the eight floor and I have to say this is an awesome place to hang out and blog. I love wireless Internet. Audrey was kind enough to let me use her laptop so I could check in and play with you. Mikey has minion duty so I can play in Manhattan for the rest of the day. I've got my iPod going with my Hebrew lessons, just got off the phone with Melody Botting and am now wondering who else I'm gonna meet here before I cut out at 3:30 to take my Club Chaos peeps back to JFK for their return flight. This is just a tease. I'll be posting some Inman eye candy later. Jeff T is up so Audrey and Meyer have gotta go. I'm on the hunt for Brad A. Melodious will kick my a$$ if I do not take a picture with him and we all know that Mel is the boss of me. We won't even talk about Amanda's small caliber red staplers(ROTFL). Will check in tonight with the Girlie-Girlie Day post and an Inman upate with pictures. ;-)

Posted by Sarah Pappalardo (TheUpTurn.com) almost 12 years ago

Maria, I had a great time seeing my friends. I got to laugh and chat with Tweet-peeps from Active Rain and Agent Genius. I'm thrilled. Absolutely thrilled. :-)

Amy, as soon as I finish the kids bath time I'm going to post.

JL, I'm looking forward to the day I get to meet you and the rest of the crew. It was such a treat to meet so many wonderful people.



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

Deb, we all took turns passing our cameras around (LOL). Sometimes the conversation was so cool I sort of forgot (LMAO).

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

Melodious, my love, you don't have to kill me. I followed your instructions and got the "major" eye candy with the Spanking-A AR-Bay-Bays (LMAO). Hung out with some Club Chaos peeps too. How awesome is that? Very cool.

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

Jeannie, they are coming (LOL).

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

Sarah, I second that with a huge cool aid grin. She is soooooo Coooooool and very sweet. What a treat!

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

Hurry up and bathe those minions. I want to turn in early tonight. So glad you were able to spend time with the guys/gals who live in your computer.

Shorty is out, chilling with Handel, eyes at half mast, but Noah is holding his own in the middle of a pillow fight with Daddy in the living room (LMAO). Bad Daddy! I hope to get it posted soon, Margaret.  ;-)

Stercus Accidit

Translated from the Latin: "Shit happens." (Attributed to David Hume - LOL) I say this because the minions are winning the war of the pillows and I can't get my work done with feathers flying all around. Post will be a bit more tardy than planned (LMAO). It's coming. Stop e-mailing me. ;-)

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

Carolyne - I am jelous I did not you are there and I am not (: I hope you have a fantastic time. Sounds like you already are!

Posted by Bill Gassett, Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty) almost 12 years ago

Bill, it was absolutely lovely. We played pass the camera and all got lots of great shots in. I'm having such a tough time choosing. My guys are all finally asleep so now I can actually get some blogging done (LOL).

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

I saw a presentation today (at Sacramento Metrolist) and heard a live presentation from the founders of Dwellicious who say they are on the 32nd floor at Inman. Seems they want real estate agents to pay to participate on their site (to the tune of $600 a year) and, on top of it, bring them the community that would make their site successful -- the buyers. Have you heard or seen anything about this there?

Sounds like you're having a wonderful time!  Keep us posted to the very end.

Posted by Margaret Woda, Maryland Real Estate & Military Relocation (Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Elizabeth, my lovely, I've heard an earful (LOL). That answer may need to be a post unto itself. :-) Lani A-R and her hubby had an AG promo post going where they informed readers that that vendor was offering to spot the first 3 months for the first 100 subscribers (if they had the promo code) so I guess I'll have to direct you to Agent Genius.com for the skinny on what's going on with it. That's where I got all of my info from (also Lani linked back to the post in Facebook).

I think the Team blog here would be a better deal because we can collect as many team members as we want. The Administrator of the team can create a paypal account for the website and the assigned contributors could pay equal shares of their prorated portion into the team account for the administrator to pay the $79 per month. Get 10 or 20 writers to work with you and the cost is minimal, you get to keep all of your free AR sites but have a special sep site set up to syndicate your brokerage listings and posts to that operates on a higher Search Engine Optimization level than the free versions with SEO and customization.

It is an awesome concept because theoretically the broker in change can customize a site for his or her office and get everyone to blog, or a group of friends can customize a site and do what ever they want on it. If people are looking to learn how to monetize their blogs, AR just made it possible for writers here to create their own magazines (think Agent Genius) and sell link advertising on their team blog. Picture that! It's just a check box away to syndicate into the new format and would not be any more difficult than syndicating to a group or your outside blog. 

Imagine if a medium to large group decided to do this and created a fixed amount of writing slots (e.g. 100) then collected $29.95 flat fee for the year to syndicate to a specific team blog on a first come first serve basis. It doesn't just benefit Active Rain, it benefits savvy blog administrators who have graphic arts skills and cool interpersonal communication skills. You create the value in a project, writers will come. Dwellicious is just doing what every single member here can do using the AR platforms and a handful of widgets. They have content with video, photographs and analytics... they just repackaged it. My advice: repackage yourself (LOL). Simplistic, but true. I'd wait and watch before I spend that kind of money somewhere else... :-)

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

Margaret, it was a thrill to hang with some of my fave writers and Tweet-peeps. I was star struck. Seriously! (LOL) They are some of the most gracious and sweet people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. :-)

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

Where are they, Lady Bug?  I am not very patient.  You know that!

Posted by Melody Botting, You Deserve The Best (Broker Associate PenFed Realty) almost 12 years ago

Thanks for the update and I am looking forward to the eye candy photos! Hope you had a relaxing trip back home! Talk soon!!

Looks like you are having a great time. Enjoy!!!

Carolyn, now you have really made me want to be there!!! And I already did anyway. But, my daughter had a baby last night and that took precedence over traveling anywhere :) Had lunch with Brad, Rich J and Missy C at NAR and you are right, Brad is one of the most energetic people I have ever met. He was explaining html to me and talking it! LOL What a great guy! They're all great!
