I blog because I like it

Title Insurance with Bell Title /Triserv LLC

Why do you....Blog that is?

I used to get all excited about the prospect of blogging for points (admit it, you did too). It is hard not to notice your ranking every time you sign in.

And then it became more about content and SEO /SEM and driving web traffic

And then it became a social media exercise along with the other social medius that have become so popular and now important in our drive to stay on the cutting edge of social media marketing.

And then a funny thing happened, I started getting to know some Active Rainers, building relationships and making friends.

And the truth is, I blog for all those reasons, but as time has worn on, all those reasons are more like benefits of something that is really fun. That is why I blog........Why Do you Blog?

Stay Sharp, good luck and be well!

Your ActiveRain partner and national title agent,

Until next time,


Matching experience with technology to give

you the edge to be a mortgage industry leader

For all the same reasons as you, in approximately the same order...I think I actually have withdrawals when I have to miss a few days, like I have the past two weeks, that's sad, but true!

Bo, I blog for the exact same reasons as you do and I hope that as time goes by the reasons I blog will pay off. I would like to make some blog "friends" on Active Rain, also it would be great to start getting some leads from consumers who read my blog.

Bo, excellent question.  I have posted many times for points and ranking.  Now I am at a point where I cant get too much higher (because I am 100K less than the next person in my area).  So, I post because I want to share things about myself, family, business, etc.  I've been a little busy lately though.  No posts for the past 2 weeks and hardly any comments made.

Cheryl, Thanks for reading. It is addicting isn't it~Bo

Larry, the big issue most peole have I think is just tryiong to keep up with the train. I love hearing about your success ~ Bo

Chris, Let me know how I can help in your efforts. I look at it this way. If I can help you, then that will payoff for my business. The old adage, "you scratch my back, I will scratch yours" is perfect except in reverse. Thanks~Bo

Marilyn, Thanks for reading and following ~ Bo

John, I am right there with you. I think that we should figure out ways by using the media vehicle that we share and drive business to each other. Let's talk soon about strategies

Thankks ~Bo
