Blogs vs. Forums

I think I may be missing the boat on this one and maybe it has already been discussed. What the heck is the difference between the ActiveRain Forums section and the Blogs section? In the forums section I see a post and then comments underneath it… more

Is there anybody out there?

I was trying to figure out when the most active time on ActiveRain is? It looks to me like during the day there isn't near the amount of blogs/comments, etc as there is say around 11 pm my time (eastern). I think when the Washington/Denver… more
GOOD DEALS

When I read about all the talk of work force housing or median housing, North Port still looks very good. We seem to be the bargain basement for homes in the area between Sarasota and Fort Myers. I don't know about other areas, but most of our… more
