Where do I find topics for my blog? ~ Carroll County, Maryland

Where do I find topics for my blog? Everywhere! More specifically, the office, Where do I find topics for my blog? ~ Carroll County, MDduring phone conversations, personal conversations, webinars, ce classes, as I work through a transaction and a issue or funny thing happens.

One of the best lessons I learned at RainCamp was/is to look in your email for topics. The questions we are asked everyday from buyers and sellers, friends and family are the same questions everyone wants the answers too.

If we, and this is a goal of mine, write a blog that answers the questions and create our own library of answers we can save ourselves so much time by saying, “No Mr. Seller, that’s not a stupid question, no question is stupid. That’s why you hired me, to help you understand the process. You are not the first person to ask that question and you will not be the last. Check out my blog on specifically xyz.” We also give our clients & customers another resource that contains our professional opinion regarding a subject.

Don’t forget to add some non-professional topics. I love to talk about my family and what ever is going on, softball, visiting family, quiting smoking, etc. How about community events? Town history? Sporting events? Animal Shelters? Senior Centers? The list goes on & on. Once you start thinking about blogging you’ll have more topics than you can blog about!

That's one of the things that I like about my iPhone. It takes verbal commands and I instruct it all day to remind me about different subject matter I pick up here and there for posting and blogging. To me, there is no shortage of topics, its more of making the time to do so...good sharing post thank you Diane

Diane, you have about summed it up, there are more topics than we can think of. All we have to do is to do it, that is where most of us fail.

Good points, my first inspiration to start blogging was getting the same questions from clients over and over again. Not that I mind (I'm just happy to have clients), but it seems like a resource that answers all the frequently asked questions could be a great resource for past and future clients.

It is true just about everything we do may suggests a possible post.  I especially like to talk with my friends about real estate.  They ask me about so many interesting and thought provoking topics I practically have my blogs for a month.

Hi Diane,

Great blog post! Thanks for sharing this. We agree 100% with this post. The most important part about blogging is to be real and write about what you know, and part of that means finding inspiration for blogging in your day to day activities. It's impossible to get writers block is you stop overthinking each topic and just go back to what you know!

During the December blog challenge I thought I would struggle to find topics until I just quit worrying about it and let the fingers do the talking!!

Hmmmm.....one terrific topic is interacting with people who comment on your blog and ask questions or raise issues. The conversation part of social media is frequently overlooked.
