By gosh, I think I've done it.
Below is my old blog signature, which I wasn't even aware that it is not a signature,
Then the lightbulb goes off when I read about this month's challenge hosted by Craig Daniels—and inspired by Eileen Burns.
Here goes my attempt to create a signature using Craig's Video as a guide.
My goodness, this guy is a genius! Creating a simple tutorial takes much time and effort, but it seems almost impossible until you try it. It's like anything new, oh so easy once your know-how. And is a building block one step at a time.
Think anything related to the computer, as soon as you master it; you say, oh, that was easy. Think of the first time you put a listing in the MLS, your first blog, uploading a photo, a contract for electronic signatures, the first time you used an iPhone or iPad.
Go ahead, listen to anyone who has a Mac, tell a new user how easy it is. Well yeah! It's easy when you are taught or can figure it out.
Creating a signature was not on my to-do list; if anything, I would have hired someone!
I would much rather be spending time listing and selling real estate. But how could I not give it a shot and enter this month's challenge? And after all, I needed a blog for today, and I needed an updated signature.
So how did I do this? I went to Craig's video and listened once, then I listened again, and again and probably a few more times. Then the light bulb went off.
I set my iPad next to my computer and went to Craig's video again. The regular computer and the iPad to listen to were good moves. Do you know how many times you can repeat each step? Thank goodness, there is no limit!
Here is the start of my new signature
You see the blog signature immediately after the post under the "Posted By" subheading.
With my signature completed, anyone can quickly call, text, email, check out an article about me, go to my blog, see my listings, website and listen to my past radio shows.
All accomplished in that one rectangle at the end of my daily blog called a blog signature!
-I have been looking for an easy way to send someone to my daily blog.
-I have been looking for an easy way to share my radio podcasts.
-I have been looking for an easy way to get an email.
-I have been searching for an easy way to share a magazine article.
The above goals...accomplished!
Craig explained it beautifully in 20 minutes, but I am here to tell you that, for me, twenty minutes is a whole lot longer than it used to be! But looking back, my signature is done, and so is my entry for this month's challenge. And I just hit the 500-word minimum describing my signature update.
And thanks for the opportunity to learn!
