If you love baseball as much as I do, you have to love this post by Gail while she compares Blogging to Baseball. Sometimes you have to wait a long time before there is any action, and blogging is certainly the same way, since it doesn't happen overnight. Stop by and leave Gail comments on her original post. Looking forward to the World Series this coming week. How about those Cleveland Indians?

Original content by Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate 700512026

I don't claim to be a baseball aficionado but my dad was a semi-pro baseball player during my early childhood. Baseball was his first love, followed very closely by football. Even though Dad only had two girls, we are grateful to him for teaching us how to love and  understand sports and how it plays out in real life situations.  I might just be channeling him with these analogies!

 

 

The Right Pitch--Pitchers don't start out throwing strikes consistently. As you blog, you're pitching out ideas. Once you figure out what your "strike zone" is; your niche market, you can hone in on that. Practice practice practice, learn from your mentors, get feedback from them  and your audience to see what "pitches" are working. Some may get tired of the same fast ball, and you become too predictable, so don't forget to "change it up" now and then. It keeps 'em guessing and coming back because you've piqued their interest and show that you have many ways of pitching in that strike zone!

The Single- I liken this to the market report. Your numbers may not be important to some, but you got on base and when you do that consistently, people will take notice. They can always rely on you.

The Sacrifice Fly- Re-blogging--Sometimes you give up your own blogging post to allow someone else to "bring it in". Someone whom you know is already a winner and by giving up your spot for the day you give them a chance to shine! 

The Home Run-Every now and then you hit a home run, a *FEATURE*! You've got your audience on their feet, cheering for you, everyone's talking about you and you can feel the wave of success all around you! Own it, enjoy it, and figure out how you made it happen so that you can repeat it. Pretty soon, you'll be a seasoned player, racking up more home runs. 

The Last Season-If you can no longer play, COACH! We all get to that point in our career where we may need to slow down a bit, and then  we have the opportunity to give back. Create your own team. Become a mentor, take a newbie underwing, share your passion for the "game"!

You have to swing the bat before you can hit the ball that way. Go for it, I say.

Good choice to re-blog- especially as we  begin to head into the  holiday season and some agent slow down in their marketing efforts.  Its a call to action to get in and stay in the game.  Thanks.

A good one to re-blog.  As a former softball player and coach for many years, I get the analogy!  I'll comment on Gayle's post, too!

Jerry this is an awesome re-blog I saw it when our friend Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor (503)755-2905 first published this and indeed it is a Home Run, Endre

Yes, Endre Barath, Jr. It was indeed a home run post. Sorry your Dodgers didn't make it to the World Series, but it should be interesting to watch the two contenders this year.

Jerry!!! How wonderful of you to pass on my post--much thanks! I have to root for Cleveland as that's where my sister has resided for umpteen years. I loved the story about the new pitcher and how successful he was and now he hasn't got anything left on his bridal registry, I hear because all of the Cleveland fans bought him presents!
