Double Your Output: Turn your AR Comment into an AR Blog

Real Estate Agent with Prudential Georgia Realty - Rabun County, Ga.

Many AR members write interesting, helpful, thoughtful, knowledgeable blogs.  Those same blogs deserve interesting, helpful, thoughtful, knowledgeable responses, but writing those responses takes time.  That same time could be used to write a blog. 

What's an Active Rainmaker to do?

When you read a post that stimulates you to respond with a comment that could stand on its own as a post - maybe with just a little added introduction - right click and 'copy' your comment before you send it on its way.

Then, go to your home page and 'paste' in what you have already written so you can use the comment you have already spent time writing as the basis for a post of your own.

You'll have accomplished several things:

1.  You will have made more than just the normal 'I agree with you' or "This happens in our market, too', type of comment that is so very typical of the blog comments.

2.  You will be able to use the work you have already done to make your very own blog post.

3.  Obviously, you are exposing the original blog idea to a wider audience by extending the scope of the   your different viewpoint, ideas or comments about the original post.

Happy blogging!

Lynda:  I have done this many times.  I think that when reading someone else's blog post... the comment you make is often more natural.  It can come from your intuitive or reflexive side, rather than the result of "thinking about it"... like one might do when trying to come up with a subject for a stand-alone blog post.

So... taking a good comment... and turning it into it's own blog post... is something I have done many times.  And... oftentimes... they have turned into some of my better posts.  Great idea.  GMTA.

Great point. Someone left a LENGTHY comment to my post yesterday and I suggested she make her own post with that content.

Karen Anne - what a thoughtful comment on my original post.  Just what I was writing about! Thank you

Lori - figured I wasn't the only person who had thought of doing this, but I'd never seen it in writing, so there you go.....   Thanks!
