It's 10 pm, Do You Know Where Your Blog Is?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 SAL.2002007747

It's been a long, busy day and it's 10 p.m. and I haven't written a post yet today.

What to write?

There's a host of topics I could do tonight with a little extra time and the willingness.

None of the monthly market reports have been written yet...but not tonight.

Monday I visited a new construction patio home community with a unique set up that I definitely want to blog about...but not tonight.

One of my buyer client's emailed me this evening some interesting thoughts on his impressions of the sellers and accountability (it was POSITIVE)...but not tonight.

I need to do some research on another topic:  the types of homeowner's insurance needed for patio homes...but not tonight.

There's a theme here...not tonight.  A combination of fatigue and other tasks still needing done for the night dictates no heavy lifting tonight.

But here's the beauty of being a long time blogger.

I've got a couple hundred custom search IDX pages tied to my Wordpress sites (most of which are spin-offs from blog posts), and those never quit working for me as long as my Wordpress site and IDX are up and running (and downtime is VERY rare).

And actual blog posts?  I'm not really sure where the truly accurate number is for ActiveRain published posts, but my stat page indicates over 4000 posts.

Those posts don't sleep.  The good ones, the bad ones, the meh ones, the ones packed with EXACTLY what the consumer is looking for, they're all out there.

10 p.m. or 10 a.m., blog posts have no curfew.  They're just waiting to be found by the right person.

Fortunately if I have a night that I don't want to do any heavy lifting with my blog, I don't have to worry about it.  Those other posts are out there doing bench presses for me.

Bottom line:  build a relevant collection of posts and you don't have to stress about not contributing something new (just don't make a habit out of it).

Hello Liz and Bill - So true.    Do you know where to find your blog post?  Good. Bad. Indifferent or just Meh.   Yes, for the active and consistent blogger it can be found.  The silent(and not-so-silent) salesperson.

You have written some great posts and isn't it nice to know that they are out there doing their job - they are rather like investment properties - they earn income for you whether you are awake, asleep, at work or on vacation

Thank you for the insight. It's a simple concept that, like most else in this field, takes consistency and committment if we expect it to work for us in the long run. I appreciate and definitely need these tips and reminders.

Great point, its a marathon not a sprint. I kniow that, but there are still times where I miss a little too often, for one reason or another, but over time you build a good trove of treasure
