Number 123 In The State of Texas...But, Hey, I Got Here The Hard Way
All right! All right! I confess...I do look at my ranking on Active Rain in hopes to one day be a little farther up the board. So, I peaked at my competition to see what they were blogging about...just for grins. I figured...maybe their blogs could give me ideas for future blogs. It didn't take me long to realize that most of their blogs were their new listings. (Insert air being let outta my idealistic balloon here).
Here I was thinking that all of those Active Rainer's that were ahead of me were blogging their little hearts out with riveting, helpful, material for us up-and-comings and those outside of Active Rain. Sigh... What was really happening was they were posting and re-posting their listings and all the while racking up more points. Not that that's wrong, mind you... This site was partly created to market our listings...
So, what's an agent to do that is starting all over in new city to do? I currently have no listings...just buyers, and a love for blogging and the rural lifestyle. I guess this is where I insert the "slow and steady wins the race" quote into my thinking...smile...and move on.
