Q: You know what would make cleaning more fun?
A: A Maid



In response to Debe Maxwell, CRS 's June Challenge to do some Spring Cleaning on our old blog posts, here is my entry.  My situation is a little different than many of you since I am no longer licensed. I retired in 2011.

I edited and updated the 10 blogs, listed below.  I started back at the beginning and worked my way forward.  The bad news is, since my first post was in October of 2006, this only got me to April 20, 2007. I still have a LOT of work to do but at least I have a basis from which to start. 

Here are the things I did:
1) Added a disclaimer that I am no longer licensed
2) Deleted old contact links
3) Deleted links to old blogs that are no longer active
4) Deleted links that are no longer working
5) Updated links to be working links
6) Added graphics on each post.  Many did not have any graphics.
7) Changed small fonts to larger, easier to read, fonts
8) Added a signature at the end of each post
9) Added a tagline at the end of each post
10) Added "Update" to the title and added "Wenatchee" where appropriate
11) Added a quote at the beginning of each post, which I adopted later

I pretty much left most of the original content the same.  I did this because I found it very interesting to read these from a historical standpoint.  However, in a couple instances where there were average and median prices listed, I added the new numbers in red as an interesting comparison from then to now. 

So, without further ado, here they are:

The Value Of An ActiveRain Blog  (My very first post on AR)

To Buy Or Not To Buy in Wenatchee. That Is The Question 

Why I Love My Wenatchee Website and Blogs 

Wenatchee: Safest City In Washington State  

How Did This Happen in Wenatchee? 

Beautiful Wenatchee Needs A Clean-up Crew  

Wenatchee Real Estate Demand High But Sales Decline 

A Good Site For Wenatchee Do-It-Yourself Landlords 

Housing Market Insight In Wenatchee, Washington  

How To Price Unique Properties in Wenatchee

Oh... and might I add, this took a lot more time than I expected.  For those of you out there with young blogs, do your Spring Cleaning regularly.  It won't be so overwhelming.

Good for you, Carol.  I performed my Spring Cleaning a few days ago.  And, I've gone on to clean up an extra few blogs since.

Amazing job, Carol! You know, those old broken links were what got me the most. I never knew that I had so many 'expired' links that I had referred to in MANY of my older posts. I've been more careful in recent years, to use only 'seasoned' sites but, I'm sure there's some broken ones on the newer posts too!

And, you're so right - who knew there were so many rabbit holes to go down when taking on this challenge?! 

Thanks for participating, Carol!

Hi Kathy Streib ,
The Challenge is complete but it only made us realize how much more there is to do, didn't it?

Good morning Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, 
It's an interesting task and makes you aware of how important it is to keep up instead of trying to catch up!  Happy Sunday!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,
The Challenge only brought to light how many more posts need attention, didn't it?  10 was basically a drop in the bucket.   Have a great day!

Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ,
"...spent way way more time than planned". That's an understatement, isn't it?  I hope I can get myself back to do more on a regular basis.

I've done some more updates since my original blog about this challenge, and I have a lot more broken links that I would have guessed. Great job!

Hi Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS 
I do love quotes and started opening my posts with one somewhere along the line the last couple of years.  It's sort of a blogging trademark for me, I guess.

Carol, Not an easy job that's for sure. I still have a lot more to do. I find spring cleaning our blog posts is harder and more time-consuming than cleaning our house :)
