Why I Am Still Blogging

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

For me, blogging is a way to record my real estate happenings. I can share with my clients and my listening audience what is happening. If it is a listing, an open house, a too-late property, or a smooth settlement, I am logging in to share all about real estate.

It is also a way to engage others. My buyers, sellers, and radio listeners have access. I have a link in my email address, and I love that the public can follow me.

If there is a question on the show, via email, or a phone call...I may turn that question into a blog. And then that blog can become a topic for my radio show: double duty and a great way to stay in touch with clients.

So many people have stopped or slowed down their daily or weekly posting using the lack of SEO as their reason. As long as I have comments, calls, emails, and texts about my blogging, I see no reason to slow it down.  

If it's working, and it is for me, and it isn't broke, I will still be here blogging away and talking with a member daily.

I will not make negative comments; if I do, I hope to be pointed out. For a comment or post that I'm afraid I have to disagree with. Instead, I will write my blog on the same topic.

Sometimes I skip a day or two of blogging, but I have logged in daily since 2006. It's become a part of my real estate life, and the Tuesday Zooms are icing on this blogging cake.

The friendships forged over the years are priceless. So blogging slowdown will not happen for me, at least not while I see such success. I will not stop logging in every day, and I will not stop calling a member each day.

Blogging daily was essential to me until it no longer was essential (life got busier and I had to make decisions about where and how to spend my time).  I don't worry about the SEO, when I have information I want to contribute, type and release to the wilds and see what happens.

That's one of the great things about this place.  Many different paths to success and we can each choose what works best for us.  At this point in our real estate lives, I don't anticipate going back to daily blogging, but there may come a time that I want to build more IDX pages and other content.

Liz and Bill Spear , I thought about you while writing this post. I was thinking about slowing down with the almost daily blogging but then figured out what might be right for you , is  not for me.

That is the great thing about AR. We can listen and learn and then choose what works. I appreciate all you do for the Rain

I used to blog regularly, then too many things started gobbling up my time. I need to get back to it.
