Ahhh the hangover. The time when you remember how much you love advil, your couch, your blanket, and your water closet. And a great time to think about / try to remember just what the hell happened, and what you're going to do about it.
As promised, I wanted to present the other 11 great entries that just didn't make the top 10 cut. These are in a particular order, just not the order you're thinking of.
And without further
adeux adeiu ... here we go:
Dr. Rudolph D. Bachraty III at Sellsius questions if newspaper advertising has gone the way of CD's (that's like, sooo 2002) with Old School Real Estate Search: Real Estate Newspaper Classifieds Ads
Kristal Kraft at Denver Real Estate and Relocation wants to give the title back to Ohio as she points out some of the difficulties of determining the amount of forclosures in Colorado
Drew Meyers at zillowblog is shaking in his shoes about 'quakes, and provides a "how to protect your investment." A great article, that didn't make the top ten, because I though it was such a specific topic that doesn't affect me. I guess what I'm saying is that it's not Drews ... fault. HIOOOOO I got a pun in!!!
And last and certaintly least ( I say that because I was actually going to trash it, as it was written on October 18th, and that is clearly in violation of the rules of the carnival). But:
A) I liked the entry
B) I like the idea of the whole blog
3) bugger off, it's my Carnival this week
Sometimes when you start adding to many complex rules, you make something too complex. The idea of the Carnival of Real Estate should be something very basic. A bunch of Real Estate bloggers that submit their posts each week to a different host. In my opinion, the rules should be entirely up to the host. Different hosts should use their own discretion as to what will fly, I mean, it IS their blog this is going on. I think the more that hosts stray from the norm, the more interesting their carnival is. The more rules you add, the more uniform (aka boring) the carnival will become.
And as far as splitting the carnival in two... please don't. I love getting suggestions from people. I love even more when I get suggestions from people in my company, because they usually get the same response. Make it so... If it's something you're passionate about, then you're the best man for the job.
