The Best Comment

  

We may get a gold star for a post that is smiled upon by the feature fairies. We may get a mention in Carol Williams Second Chance Saturdays. We may be singled out in Kathy Streib Ah-Ha moment or we may get pointed to in one of Robert Vegas Bob Swetz many groups or Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  Bananatude or  Myrl Jeffcoat Old Farts Club or even  Chris Ann Cleland Bartender Make Mine A Double.

 

There are times when we need an award for best comment.

 

One of those awards winning comments were written by 

Grant Schneider  

 

Icomment of the day

 

It read:

“Good morning Margaret - funny you should say that.  We have a solopreneurs group in our Business Council.  They are described as the ones who have board meetings in their shower.”

 

It would be nice to give special recognition to our members who go out of their way to write good...no great comments.

Do you have a favorite comment or commenter? 

Should AR have a way to recognize the best comments?

Margaret, I think that’s a stellar idea. I am amazed at the creativity and brilliance of some of our members and their very thoughtful and meaningful comments. They can make or break your day!

Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida And many times these comments are what make the posts better. There are times when the comments take on a life of their own. Thanks for stopping by.

Good morning,  Margaret --- what a great idea and we have many contenders for the title on ActiveRain.

Margaret,

What a great idea.  I love posts where there is an actual dialogue happening, rather than an echo chamber.  A

Happy Sunday Margaret- my mind is swirling because many members do come into mind. This is a good idea for a series as well. One name who pops into my head is Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents because you can see that she read your post and usually has a question for you as well!

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) 19 days ago

Michael Jacobs You always write positive comments. Thank you.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Dialogues can really add to the discussion and lead to other ideas for all. 

Posted by Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) 19 days ago

Kathy Streib For sure Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents lets you know the post was read and continues the conversation or leads you to one of her informative posts.

When you have time, let's talk about this idea as a series.

Thanks for the shout out, Kathy Streib and Margaret. You know what I would like to see? The removal of those "drive by" comments. Same guys always post the same impersonal statement, like thanks for sharing. You can take your thanks for sharing and shove it where the sun don't shine, heh, heh.

If you don't have anything to say, then don't say it.

Thank you for mentioning my "Old Farts Club" in this post, Margaret.  We are always looking for new members.  It's important to understand the group is for young and old!  Some days we all feel older than our birth certificate.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 19 days ago

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents  I don't think we will be able to remove those one word or drive-by comments as long as points are being rewarded.

Myrl Jeffcoat Time for you to write about the posts that go into the OFC group. Love your comment that age is not a requirement for your group.

Great idea as we have certainly read some good comments in the past, and I certainly like Grant's comment - that is funny but so true!

Good evening Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland  - thank you so much for reaching out to me.  I was great speaking to you.  Yes, in essence, that is what solopreneurs do.  Some of best ideas happen in the shower.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 I think of that meeting each time I'm in the shower. My plan is to start highlighting great comments.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland there are so many AR members who leave great comments, there are too many to mention.... you can always tell who reads the post and who just guesses!

Posted by Barbara Todaro, "Franklin MA Homes" (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) 12 days ago

I actually wrote a post once with a title something like "And The Award For Agent Who Gets It Goes To..." after reading a comment that I thought was so brilliant.

I wish I had more time in the day to read ALL comments to every post I read. There is a lot of wisdom to be found in the comment sections!

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-ha" moments for the week. There are some excellent comments on posts that even give us a light bulb moment to write a post! You certainly can tell who actually reads the post by their answer! LOL!

Good morning Margaret, what a great post.  I always look forward to reading comments and frequently sort to the stories with the most comments to see what everyone else has to say about a particular post. I can't count the number of times I've learned something new from both a post and the commentary surrounding the post. Thanks for Kathy Streib for highlighting your post.  Have a great day!

Posted by Matthew Klinowski, PA, Golf Community Real Estate Specialist (Downing-Frye) 12 days ago

Good idea there to up the game in quality commenting!  Yes, now we need another contest for that!  Thanks Margaret!
