OK, I admit it, I don’t do well writing about real estate. Some say I come across snotty, a little bit snarky, even condescending. And of course, that’s not what I’m trying to do. I like putting out stat posts every once in while, when the stats come out. But posting once or twice a month does not help Google find me. See, I’ve been trying to make a square peg (writing about real estate) fit in a round hole (writing on my blog).
When I was a kid, I wanted to write my own column, like Jack Smith in the LA Times. My best friend and her mom enjoyed what I wrote so much they said I could be the next Erma Bombeck. I posted a note on Facebook almost two years ago as part of a meme – 25 Random Things About Me, which was really well received. When blogging took off it occurred to me that each blogger had his or her own column. Hmmmm…
It finally hit me, I’d rather write what I like to write about, and if people find my blog, and like what they read, then maybe they’ll want to work with me in a real estate transaction. Usually people work with me because they like me, anyway, not because I’ve been spouting off real estate info on my blog every day.
So now what you’ll find when you come to my blog, is my writings about life and living…here in the Tri-Cities. Real estate will be included, because it is part of a my life. I’m involved with it almost every day, and often for more than eight of those hours in the day. But it will not be the sole focus of the blog, despite its name.
