Breaking into the world of Blogging

Real Estate Agent with Keller-Williams Elite Team

This is a whole new world to me.  I am one of those babyboomers who has been forced into the world of technology because of my profession.  But to my surprise I really do enjoy it.  The only problem I have is trying to be diligent in keeping up with it.  It has taken me a lot of time to get the nerve to start this "blogging" process.  I read them and enjoy them but up to this point have been fearful in actually writing one.  It's kind of like opening yourself to inspection and revealing some of your weak points.  I really don't think I write the way I would speak to you if we were in a conversation.  I have been a realtor for 20 years and prior to that was a registered nurse for 35 years.  I have 4 grown children ages 39 to 46.  I have 7 grandchildren and have just become a greatgrandmother to a beautiful little girl.

Well that is just a little about me so let's get back to this blogging thing.  I could use some comments on how often you fellow bloggers write a blog on your websites?  Is it everyday or every week?  Am I supposed to open my heart and soul about the topic or sound very knowledgeable in my topic.  I guess I wouldn't be writing about it unless I had a good knowledge base in the subject.  That would really be dumb.  I guess I'm not sure what people find of interest when they go to your blog.  I know that the blogs I have posted on have been regarding some real estate issues and political opinions on some network websites but I am still trying to get the lay of the land.  I have a lot of different experiences in the real estate field and can address things from the perspective of the buyer or seller as I have been one myself or from the Realtor's perspective in giving information to the public.  However I have read that most of the comments come from fellow realtors and not from the public.  Also, how does the general public find our blogs on Activerain?  I am still a little confused by that.  I find myself suffering these senior moments more and more.  I enjoy speaking to my grandchildren via textmessaging as this is the only way they will communicate with me.  And I just started to run around in myspace and YouTube.  These still remain foreign to my poor husband.  I just was able to teach him about forwarding email and adding a message.

This is definitely a new adventure for this babyboomer and I would like to get any and all advise on how to make this a successful and enjoyable adventure for myself and the new friends I hope to make over time.  You are teaching an old dog new tricks but I am a fast learner and the best way to learn is to just dive in and go for it so that is what I am doing!  I hope someone will read this and tell me what to do!
