Blogging Ideas Are Everywhere

If you've been a blogging member for a while, you can read and "hear" the voices come through. You can recognize the writing pretty much as you can identify a person when you hear them speak. 

We each have a style, and there are just as many styles as writers.  Some open up their personalities and allow you to get to know them personally and professionally. Others keep it hardcore business only. If not about RE, it's not relevant. Others share and combine their blogging with many topics, including family milestones, accomplishments, travel, and success with listings, buyers, and interesting settlements. There is no set rule as to when, how often, or what you choose to post. It's yours and yours alone.  

 

My topics range from how I can expose my unique listings to the broadest audience to finding the right home for buyers.

 Many of my topics come from the callers c RE questions, e-mails, or comments on previous blogs. They come from my daily conversations c professionals around the country. If I see an interesting blog or blog comment or read something in the QnA, it may trigger an idea. If I read a blog that I agree with or don't, I can expand with my thoughts and make an article.

 Sometimes my blogs become radio topics. Sometimes radio topics become blogs.

There never seems to be a shortage of ideas or subjects. But there may be a shortage of time. Blogging is educational, and it allows me to share what I learn daily. It is also gratifying, and I love waking up to comments on a post written the night before.

If you want to blog, start writing. You want ideas, read your e-mail, listen to your clients, and colleagues' conversations.    

What was your best buying or selling experience? Did you do a great job and get a thank you note on how you got your first listing, who was your most challenging client or maybe explain a paragraph in your sales contract. If you still can't think of a subject, call me for a suggestion. 

Blogging Ideas  Are Everywhere!

There are so many 'A ha' moments' around us we just need to open up our eyes and minds and put down a few notes

Margaret like you I have never had a problem coming up with a blog topic when I want to write a blog.  Just a normal day in this business provides lots of ideas.

One of the things I've noticed, is when blogging ideas seem scarce, all I need do is grab my camera, jump in the car and go for a little drive.  Usually, some point of local interest will come up to write about!

Hello Margaret - as a longtime member of ActiveRain, one of the interesting parts of that membership is spotting blogging voices.  In addition to those I follow,  there are those I may see while out-and-about who may bd new or new-to-me who make regular discovery a reality of everyday life on this platform.
