To Write You Have To Start.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Tutas Towne Realty, Inc and Garden Views Realty, LLC BK607690


Hi, folks. Well, I’m here again to try and regain my long lost blogging mojo. I figure I’ll just start writing and see where it goes.


Once upon a time, there was a wee little real estate broker, Broker Bryant. He was incredibly good looking and very humble. For years he was a shining light in the blogging world. His light was only outshined by his enormous ego.


Broker Bryant was putting out the “World’s Best” real estate articles at a rate of 20-30 articles a month. Then nothing. For several years. The hamster had fallen off the wheel. THE END


Or is it………...


When I was a prolific writer a major amount of my business came from Active Rain. Writing, posting and participating on Active Rain, I found, was very relaxing and it gave me a chance to really define what it is I did in my business. It forced me to examine the way I did things. And this made me a better real estate broker.


My writing strategy on Active Rain was very simple.


  1. Write about what I do and where I do it.

  2. Write for agents and consumers alike.

  3. Write consistently and post on the same days and at the same times.

  4. Write with sincerity and knowledge.

  5. Write informatively and entertainingly.

  6. Write opinionated articles to feed conversations.

  7. Write the way I talk.


That’s it. A simple plan but it worked. In my opinion creating great content is the best way to “attract” sellers and buyers who are ready to do business with you.


So I think my new plan is…………..go back to the old plan!!


Hey, look at this….I just wrote an article!! Now I just need to do it again and again and again.


I feel better now. Y'all have a good Memorial Day Weekend.

Did you just get out of jail? A rehab program? You look fabulous, Bryant! Like you lost 20 years somewhere along the way. Of course, I mean, you have always looked fabulous, where is my head?

Hehehehe ... so now you will also have fun meeting all the new bloggers that have been shining here in the rain while you were away.  Good to see you back. I remember the good ol' days here on ActiveRain when we were just a small group of bloggers taking over the world of blogging. We had some fun times!

Good to see you back around here Bryant.  Funny you posted this when you did, just like you, I just started back here again.  Trying to find my voice again among the chaos.  I too find this place calming at times.

You've been missed here broker bryant ! I wondered if the sale to the big T then the big Z made you leave.

Nope. I left due to just being too busy.  We also spent a lot of time growing to 15,000 members. WE sold the site late last year so now I'm going to focus more on my blogging efforts
