No, I never checked what groups the blogger uses. I'm a member of many groups, but not sure I see any value of that.

I don't pay attention to what groups other members belong to. Does posting to groups really matter anymore? I mean I truly don't know.

Michael - I have never looked at what groups a particular blog post was submitted to. There are so many thousands of groups, as well as agents here on Active Rain, it is hard enough just trying to keep up with the people whose post I enjoy reading.

Once, which lead me to join a few groups.  I don't post to them though, it takes long enough already to do the city/neighborhood specific catergorizations.

groups are local people who share their listings. They are mostly competitors but can network or coop.
