I recently read a blog article by Chris Brogan one of my favorite writers. http://www.chrisbrogan.com In his article he makes the statement that it is important to occasionally start from the beginning to let your new readers understand what you are all about. His statement is back up with examples, and it started me to thinking about my own blogging efforts. I have been blogging for over a year now, and maybe it is time to explain what I do here.
So here goes.
I am a REALTOR®, but I hope you wont hold this against me or stop you from visiting and revisiting my blog. It is not all about real estate. Just check out the Select Topic drop down menu on the right side of the screen or just start scrolling down on the first page. I believe that it is important to provide more than just listing information. You will find most recently short video tips on Do It Yourself projects. There are also local tour videos (this is just getting started by the way) that will introduce you to places you may want to visit if you are in the the Charlottesville area.
There may be a tip on the mortgage rates or a tour of a local coffee shop or vineyard etc. So should you just happen upon my blog I hope you will take the tour, and decide for yourself if the posts are something you may want to revisit or pass along to others. I even have a series of intervies with individuals a day or so after we had our earthquake in central Virginia that made the national news. There are scenic views, nature and even a “Bears that I have known” photo blog. Soon if the weather cooperates there will be photos or videos of the fall leaves changing in our area. You just never know what surprise will pop up.

Whatever you decide please leave me a comment. It would be very appreciated and will help me to continue improving the content, and make it more interesting.
As a matter of fact at the top of the page there is even a complaint tab and a leave a question tab. I hope you will be please by what you find on my pages, but if you aren’t let me know.
Thank you for stopping by. http://www.charlottesvillebydave.com
