QUICK NOTE: A couple of people suggested that I re-post this one that I wrote a few days ago, since it was not on the dashboard very long before getting bumped down on my blog by a featured post of mine.  I am not receiving any points for it this time around.  Thanks! The Austin American-Statesma...

As part of my ongoing effort to push myself outside of my comfort zone, I will be teaching a class on "Social Media 101" at Gracy Title's Spicewood Springs office on February 18th from 2-3pm.  I arranged for an SEO class to be taught just before mine by Ben Finklea, CEO of Volacci Search Marketi...

One of our agents listed a short sale home in the Meridian area of southwest Austin (very near the Circle C golf course).  It's priced at $279,900, but we anticipate that it will sell well above that price, based on the amount of interest already generated. Here are some of the basic features: Bu...

I got a ticket a couple of months ago (I think in November).  Thankfully, it had been just over a year since my last infraction.  This time, it happened in a school zone (darn).  Admittedly, I was distracted, because I was running late taking my daughter to her art lesson.  As a further pathetic ...

I spoke awhile last night with my good friend Liz Carter from Katy, Texas (near Houston).  Liz has struggled with a number of health issues this past year, including hepatitis C (currently in remission, although I'm not sure if that's the exact term), a ruptured appendix, and intestinal surgery. ...

The Austin American-Statesman (our local paper) recently created the Texas Social Media Awards, and I was pleased and flattered to have been nominated!  There are 125 nominees, and the judges will be choosing the Top 25 and announcing this "short list" on February 18th.  I also see this as anothe...

According to Yahoo's HotJobs, Austin is one of the top cities in the country where you could expect a salary increase in 2009!  The article states that the most recent salary increase figures available are from 2007, but these figures are strongly indicative of places where workers can expect inc...

In case you haven't already seen my posts about this over the past couple of weeks, I have been hosting a talk radio show with Ken Cook every Tuesday at 11am Central time for one hour (noon Eastern, 10am Mountain, 9am Pacific).  We used to do it asbout an hour and a half earlier, but we moved it ...

I realized that I hadn't written a real, old-fashioned milestone post in awhile, and I thought that watching the odometer cross the 30,000 mark for comments was as good as any other, since it is indicative of the relationships that I have developed here, as well as the value that I hope I've adde...

I could easily write several posts on this topic, but since I've had so many different opportunities this past month that have arisen from my blogging lately, I decided to write a post about all of them at once.  And yes, that is a picture of my actual thumb! REALTOR MAGAZINE I received a call fr...
