BLOGGING IS AMAZING!! BLOGGING ABOUT YOUR LOCAL AREA IS AMAZING. BECOMING THE LOCAL EXPERT IS AMAZING!!

 

That is what the reporter for the Kitsap Sun's Bremerton blog has written!! I hadn't even read the paper on-line yet this morning when my phone rang with a local number.  Usually when it is a local number it means a customer or potential customer so I am always excited to see the 360 area code. On the other end was a very gracious woman who wanted to know about one of my listings. Right now I have no listings so I asked my questions and explained the process and asked how she found me. This lead to the article I wrote about CJ's Evergreen General Store last week.  Seems the reporter Andrew Binion who writes the blog The Bremerton Beat for the local newspaper the Kitsap Sun picked up my blog article off of my Wordpress blog www.WestSoundLive.comand gave me some really cool press!!! Here is the screen shot!

The link in the article goes to my blog and that is where the new client found me. Feels pretty cool to be a juggernaut - ok now I have to look that word up!!!

 

HAHAHAH -

A juggernaut (American pronunciation (help·info)) is a term used to describe a force regarded as unstoppable, that will crush all in its path.

Unstoppable - yes.  Crushing all in your path - you're too nice to actually crush the competition, but you're certainly on your way to winning the race!
