OK you can tell I didn't write this but I will be at this event, and at the Inman Connect conference that follows. I will be on a panel at each conference. It has been an interesting experience, because of the Minnesota thing. The conference like Active Rain and much of the internet is dominated by all of you fine folks who live in the West and on the West Coast. I get some publicity and people don't get how that happens to someone from St. Paul. Maybe the world wide web really is global, who knows. We get a bad rap here in fly over land. Honest we do use technology. I even have an electric tooth brush. I have to charge it in Minneapolis until we get electricity here in St. Paul. . . . just kidding.
I think what I am the most excited about is meeting so many of the people that I frequently come into contact with but have never had the privilege of meeting in person. Jeff Turner has promised me a big hug and I plan to collect, but only if he loses the 20 pounds and gets back to his fighting weight.
There are so many others that I would like to meet, but I won't unless they buy tickets. Inman news made me, and I do mean made me submit a recent photo. It took them two months to get it from me. I post it here in the hope that we will all recognize each other at the conference. My other option would be to attend with half of my face covered and I am still considering it but I don't think they will give me my picture back.
Some of you have questioned the value of a real estate blog. I can say mine has enriched my life in many ways, most importantly it has introduced me to some amazing people, like you. Blogs are social right? You sit on the fence trying to decide if you should start one. The beauty of the blog is that anyone can do it. I am not a writer or a photographer, or an SEO expert but a real estate professional just like you. Please give it a try.
