Yea, the Blog is good, but Did you Read the Comments!
Can I preface this blog by saying really? Who ever thought in a million years that a Realtor or anyone else for that matter would be encouraged to blog and actually have it be part of their business plan. Holy cow, it almost seems ridiculous. I mean what we are really talking about is simply putting thoughts down and or writing about things that seem important to you.
I was introduced to blogging and have been posting on active rain and my little blog for just over a year now. In so many ways, I don't understand the aversion to it from many of my colleagues and friends and acquaintances in general.
They may not see the value in it. I get that, but until you try, you really have no idea. Honestly, when I got a call about a Santa parade that I had written about I was excited. When I found out the guy was calling from Connecticut, I was over the top!
And, how about this? I wrote a blog about my thoughts regarding selling your house before buying it and stupidly called the blog "What comes first the Chicken or the Egg?" Well, don't you know, I received a legit call from someone looking to purchase live chickens! Okay, so I already knew it, but these types of incidences cemented in my mind the power of the internet. (and to title your blog correctly!)
So, I digress.
Yesterday, I was lucky to be featured on Active Rain. I love it and feel very honored when it happens. Who knows the why my blog was chosen, but that is not the question. I read all the folks comments and of course enjoyed responding back. A blog forum is a wonderful place for give and take. Not just active rain either. There are so many blogs out there, and if you take the time to comment it begins a dialog that can be very informational and thought provoking.
Do you read the comments on peoples blogs? Seriously there is a lot to learn!
Many times, I find that the comments on blogs are more informational and interesting than the blog itself!
If you can just open your mind to what people have to say, and sort out what is really meaningful to you, then you begin to realize that this is a classroom! The best kind. A give and take of professionals. Professionals that receive no monetary gain by their interest and information that they have to share. They are just sharing.
I encourage you to check out not only the blog, but the comments. Who knows what you might learn!
