Today I discovered something about blogging on ActiveRAin. No, I haven't discovered anything new on my own. I'm simply taking lessons from a few of the . . . . .
MASTER BLOGGER MEMBERS OF ACTIVERAIN.
You know who they are - Barbara, Debbie, Jeff, Kathy, Jay and a few other ActiveRain friends who have mastered the Business of Blogging - for Business.
While I am dedicated to blogging on a regular basis, I do tend to stray from my core purpose for blogging which is simply BLOGGING FOR BUSINESS.
Oh, sure. I love the back and forth with ActiveRain friends. I comment daily and often many times in a day. I probably read 25 plus blog posts a day. I subscribe to 411 members and read them regularly when they post.
If there is an important, timely real estate matter in the news, I'm likely to post about it here.
GET BACK TO WORK. However, I've neglected "WORKING" many neighborhoods in my market area and tended to concentrate in the small area around my base which is Loudoun County, VA. I do often travel many miles to show and sell real estate. Shucks, I've been selling in the MD and VA market for so many years I could map them blind folded.
Just this past Friday, I showed properties to one of my long time home buyers in La Plata, VA, 90 miles and 2 hours from my base. Not a problem. I know they will buy a home, their 3rd with me and it's my pleasure to help them. They help me stay on top of Charles County real estate where I've sold many, many homes over the years.
BACK TO WORK. I'm getting back to WORK doing what I need to do to pump up my Google presence.
Since I don't have home listings to advertise, I concentrate on communities, home types, demographics, local points of interest and what ever strikes my fancy about an area.
Woodbridge, Virginia is my location for a blogging adventure today.
Why Woodbridge?? Why not?? Some things to note about Woodbridge, VA, it is DYNAMIC in terms of real estate. In fact, the deeper I get in my exploration of the details, attractions, features of Woodbridge, the more I discover to write about.
New Homes to sell. A variety of established communities to sell. Waterfront properties. A variety of Parks and Recreation areas. Shopping to satisfy everyone. Discount and Luxury shopping areas. More, more, more.
I'm planning to report on several communities in Woodbridge before I move on to another location. Plenty of time.
