Jon, I look forward to the acceptance of blog posts.  Great idea,  I assume there will be a waiting period for the human editor to "accept".  Have a great 4th weekend!

Jonathan- I'm excited to see the new Localism and I really liked Broker Bryant's suggestions: think of this comment as more of a..."Yea, what he said." type of a comment.

Jon, I am thrilled, so many new things, right in the middle of MI busy real estate time of year, and the makeover2takeover contest !!

I'll catch up, but this is exciting, I listened to Bob's interview yesterday on the radio through Brad's post, being able to eventually post to our WP blogs, my poor little wp blog is being neglected and may eventually have to go away.

Happy 4th !!

Thanks....

Is it the 9th yet?  This has been much anticipated and I can't wait to see the new look and feel.  I can't wait to see all the new bells and whistles.

Another tool, but this has caught my interest. The countdown is on. I'll be checking it all out on the 9th. I'm sure there will be lots of blogs on here.

Good to see.  The success of course in this relies most heavily on member contribution and consumer perception:-)  I do hope both are high.

This should be interesting.  When you say chronological order does that mean from July 9th going forward or will select posts be accepted for the launch date?

will guidelines be sent out prior to the launch? Where do we go if we have questions other than a blog q&a?

I agree with Bryant.  Some posts belong on Localism only. 

For example, when I read some of my favorite members, I want to know their opinions about various issues in the industry.  I want to be able to skip local events and market reports. 

I'm probably in the minority, but the idea of "accepting" posts to Localism doesn't sound right to me.  If a member has gone to the effort of creating local content, they should be able to post that content to their Localism blog.

P.S. Good job, guys.

Looking forward to the change. Current version isn't quite working the way it should.

Well kinda, it's not officially up until tomorrow morning.  But we needed to bring it up to work out some issues (meaning it will go up and down a lot tonight)

Love the look of it, but definitely have some questions....who do we direct regional issues to after you've worked out the initial bugs?
