Blogging....it isn't the SEO, it isn't the stars.....

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Blogging provides different things for different folks. When I first found Active Rain I wasn't even sure what a blog was. After awhile I discovered that if used as a marketing tool it could and does make the phone ring. Eventually I started to know some people who were experienced, wise and kind. These bloggers became people I met, whether online, by telephone and even on occasion in person. 

I used to wait for gold stars or featured posts. They don't come my way and I no longer expect them no matter what I put forth. I blog every day as a sort of discipline. Discipline is a good thing to have and has helped me hone my writing skills. I look forward to seeing people I like and respect here and that is enough for me.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Congratulations on your featured post, Sheila.  You are so right.  Blogging has something for everyone.  It may be making the phone ring, SEO, educating our readers, name/brand recognition, or simply practicing our writing skills.  When we write about real estate matters, hyperlocal news, a new listing, etc, we are keeping ourselves sharp.

The majority of my blogging has moved off AR, as it is really neighborhood centric and makes the phone ring.  I miss participating here daily, but just don't have time to duplicate the effort.

Discipline.  It's also a way of thinking, in that blogging forces you to step out of your thinking for a moment to commit to taking a postiion, taking a stand, taking a perspective.

Simply to step outside of the routine of doing real estate in order to get a greater perspective to 'see'.

And you are a wise experienced one at that Sheila.

Sheila, well you finally got that feature you had stopped waiting for! Isn't that always the way it works? I think we had much of the same things to say and it's all tried and true.
