Localism - Writing With the Stars!

By
Real Estate Agent with Liberty Homes RS-#62825

 Time for me to get out there and give back to the Rain!  A lot of new members do not know what a Localism post is besides that it is "for the consumer". Localism posts are local information posts about your industry and area of expertise. Knowledge about the market, tips for the consumer, your views on Real Estate Industry related topics, the schools, the parks, the shopping malls, the history, the people and whatever your heart desires to write about to the public. Believe me. There is no other place like Active Rain to get Real Estate Industry knowledge, education and information about the area you may be wanting to refer a client, friend or family to. So dig in for Google juice!

Bob Stewart (one of our Active Rain support people Allow myself to introduce............myself) just wrote a post this morning  ActiveRain hiring an Editor for our soon to be relaunched Localism site. Localism will be redesigned and we will see big changes in the way our posts will be out there for the public and consumer to read.

There are a kazillion ways to write a Localism post and following are some of my favorite writers for Localism and a sampling of their "products".

Mortgage Writers:

New Kids on the Block:

 More on Localism writing is in this great post by Collen Kulikowski Active Rain | Class is in Session | Post To Public Categories

I write more "About" Hawaii, our area, neighborhoods, superstitions, burial laws, coastal land, zoning, preservation, conservation, endangered species, hula, surfing, history, and much more. For me it's my home and the place I love. It becomes a passionate way of writing for me when an idea strikes me.

In any case, I hope these links will give you better ideas on what Localism is about.

The Hawaiian believe that the "Honu" (Hawaiian Sea Turtle) is watching over the children and the Chinese believe it means wisdom. Now, why would I post the picture of that? 

 

Aloha and great writing! 

 aka WooHoo Sally!

 

P.S. Special thanks to BB, TLW, Ines, George and Stephanie ....forward ho!

Sally--I have been so busy following my own advice trying to get our home "winterized" that I haven't been reading posts. Found this as a link through my statcounter...Thanks so much for the mention. I have noticed many people saying that they don't understand or do much with localism when I believe it is one of our greatest avenues for new clients...At least it is one of mine! :) Thanks again for including me in such an amazing listing of bloggers!

It's on the windward side of the island...we went "cruising" around that side the end of September and that side is always cloudy and damp. Wonderful ...it's actually a private wedding chapel or something.
