I love reading about unique aspects of the cities and towns that you all live and work in. These types of posts will help you as you focus locally and try to drill down to become a local market expert. I don't care if you are nationally based, it's always better to have a target, and geography is an easy one.
It might take some time but the more you all write about these things the better you will see your blog doing.
Focusing on a particular place, or structure makes for easier writing. The subjects have a story ready to be written. Even if you don't know the story you'll learn something which can only help you more in understanding and explaining the interesting things about the architecture around you.
Again the more you do it, the better you will do.
And winner is Jennifer Martin!
