Do you remember when you were really young, and how you looked up to your favorite mentors? I recall going to my first Rock Concert at the Oakland Coliseum, called the "Day on the Green". I was just starting out on the guitar at age 12. I will never forget Peter Frampton walking out on stage, the crowd going nuts, and Peter mastering that fret board right in front of me. I went home, put my guitar in the box, and shoved it under my bed for months. He was so good on that guitar, I wanted to quit!
That's how I felt at the Inman Real Estate Connect held in San Francisco this week. The Bloggers on that stage were just mind Blogging...I mean boggling! These Bloggers are so good at what they do, and they're successful in their businesses too. Made me want to just quit right there! LOL! There was so much great information and knowledge being shared at the Bloggers Connect, my head started to spin. But, I came away with a much greater understanding of, and the purpose for why successful agents Blog. The One Day Conference covered so much. There were panels of Bloggers that discussed some of the following topics:
Bloggers Connect Panels
- Finding your voice
- Monetizing Your Blog (Making Money)
- Keynote Address: Sitting in the eye of the Storm
- Show Me The Leads
- Blogs and Social Networking
- Creating Virtual Communities
- Widgets, Gizmos, and other Doo-Dads
- 10 Tips from Top Bloggers
- Understanding Your Audience
- Using Photos or Not ...and so much more.
The one thing that really emanated through-out the conference, was Blogging for success and growing your business!
As a highlight, Active Rain finally announced the Winner of "Project Blogger!" Boy was that a long time coming heh? If I were to share everything that happened at this event, I would have to do a 4 part post, so I decided to put all my photos into a "Bloggers Connect Real Estate Show". I hope you'll enjoy these as much as I enjoyed putting them together.
One of my favorite parts about this event, was getting to meet so many of the people I have been Blogging with this year. I finally got to meet them in person. They are actually ®eal people and are even nicer than their "Cyber Character" I have come to know and love. Yes, I left my heart in San Francisco, but my Blog comes with me. Now my quest is to apply what I have learned, and then go share it with others who were unable to attend.
Always "Pay It Forward!"
Here are some links to other shows I created for Inman Real Estate Connect in San Francisco, CA.
