Reading blogs on AR can suck me in so easily that I have to be careful about how much time I actually spend on AR. It's not like this Sacramento Realtor has unlimited periods of time during the day in which to chat with other real estate agents about things that are not pertinent to my clients nor my business. But I do enjoy the social aspect of it, and getting to know people. I've made a lot of great friends on AR.
I learn things, too. Even after 40 years of dwelling in real estate I still have room in my brain for new information. Sometimes, I pick up stuff from my blogging that I didn't even realize in myself, and that's been helpful as well. Because I freely share my thoughts and ideas with not only the consumer public but also with other agents. I am not bashful at letting others know how I run my business because what goes around, comes around in this life. I write about "whatever."
