Blog, Blog, Blog!!

When this whole blogging craze started to take off I tried to get one of the younger sales agents in my office to start a blog and keep it going. Nothing ever took off and so we kind of forgot about it. I brought it up at a few office meetings and no one seemed too interested so here I am blogging and not really understanding what it's all about.  Activerain has been a great find because I'm able to look at other posts and learn from them. Until then forgive me if I seem like I don't know what I'm doing. I'll just continue to watch and listen and learn.

Visit my blog if you like, I've onle been at it a few months, so you can get an idea of how I've been slowly figuring it out. I have a long way to go.

Blogging is a conversation. It lets people talk to each other. But the leverage is in an on line community like 'rain.

You know what you are doing-don't stop and call me if you need ideas! I stareted blogging last year and my business went up QUITE a bit!

You're off to a great start.  The toughest thing is getting started and you've passed that test.  Keep on blogging.  You'll be surprised how soon you'll be connecting with people of like interest.

Stay in the game,

Becky- we were all newbies at one point. I learn so much from reading other peoples posts. And I don't just read posts by inspectors like myself. I have not stopped blogging since I started 3 months ago - and I never blogged before that, so it just goes to show you it can be addictive. Check out other groups, and when you find an interesting post, you might want to try subscribing to their blog. -Ray

Blogging is talking in a crowded room.  Flit around from conversation to conversation... and participate.  It will bring folks back to your blog...

Blogging has proven to be a great tool for me.  I have been able to meet many great people and increase my exposure in the market as well as pick up some new business.
