Wow... I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. Let me just say that rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated!
As many ActiveRainers know, I was in Seattle back in June to present along with Debe Maxwell at RainCamp. It was a great experience and I was so excited to present at the last two RainCamps. Sharing a stage with people like Bob Stewart, Ben Kinney, Todd Clark, Brad Andersohn and Rich Jacobsen (and of course Debe) is humbling. All of these people are real-life rock stars and tough presenters to follow. It was also a rare treat to be in Seattle to help ActiveRain celebrate their 5th anniversary.
I have been exceptionally busy since I returned from that trip and that is partly the topic of this post. One thing that I have been busy with is that on September 20th I have been asked to be a speaker at a half-day Real Estate technology even being sponsored by the MetroTex Association of REALTORS. They chose the topic of my presentation for me, it is "10 Things Every REALTOR Needs to Know About Blogging". Pretty good topic, huh? I love David Letterman and his "Top 10" lists, so this could be a lot of fun, and I like this style of presentation.
Anyhow, I thought it would be a lot of fun to throw this topic open to the members of ActiveRain and get suggestions of items you think should be on the Top 10 list.. What I will do is review the results and present the Top 10 list as a result of actual Real Estate bloggers from around the country (and Canada) and then tell the attendees if they want a cope of the list they can logon to Active Rain to see it in a post I will make on the day of the presentation. Maybe it will even help bring new blood into AR from the North Texas area.
So here's your chance... leave me a comment below and include 1 (or as many as you'd like) items you think should be on the list of the "10 Things Every REALTOR Needs to Know About Blogging". If I use your suggestion(s) in the final presentation list, I will even attribute it to you and mention what city you are in as a way for people who view the presentation or subsequent blog post to find you for networking and referrals!
I can't wait to see what suggestions, tips and pearls of blogging wisdom we come up with!
