You Are Really Gonna Wanna Read This!! What Does Your Blog Say About You?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with McKinney Realty Group
Have you ever wandered through this blogsphere that we are running like a mouse in a wheel to keep going in where exactly you are going?

I began blogging constantly about a year and a half ago and I had NO idea what I was doing or even what I wanted to blog about. I read A LOT of others blogs before I wrote my first, so when I finally dove in that is exactly what I did...jump in!!

Through the time I have done a lot of techie tip blogs for my fellow Rainers, listing blogs, family blogs, hyper local blogs, etc. So what would my blog look like if you took it all and could get an overview?

Today I am sitting in a Bold Tech class put on by Keller Williams Maps Coaching, being taught by Liz Landry, and at no surprise there is a lot of talk about blogging! Well I have learned something REALLY neat that I think you all will like and I just had to share!!

There is a web site called www.Wordle.net that will analyze your blog and give you this really cool “picture” of what you blog looks like to the consumer.  What you write the most about, bigger words, mean you talk about it more! We would preferably have our industry words be the larger ones.... You get the picture! So here is what mine looks like :0)

I like Worldle and think it's a good tool to analyze what I'm writing about.  It makes me more careful about how and what I write about.  Isn't it great that yours says "HOME" right in the middle!

Melissa~ I've seen this before and have it saved to favorites.  What word(s) did you put in?  Your name?  The name of your blog?

I did mine but it wouldn't let me copy and paste it or I would've dropped it in here. Ironically enough, it was all about ME! haha
