Why I Blog... Has Nothing To Do With Why You Should Blog!

ActiveRain is turning five next month and I have been here  blogging since  July of 2006 almost from the  beginning!  I was the 845th member to sign in.  It has become part of my daily routine and a huge part of my business. An often asked question: How do you find time to write every day?

I usually say: I take a shower every day, wash my hair every day...always finding time for important things. Blogging has become one of those important things.

The writing of my book, fabulous reviews and countless listings and buyers have been the direct results of my blog.

The  Washington Post has quoted me   and even ran a front page article  in the real estate section, after reading  about a Thursday afternoon BBQ.

Realtor Magazine honored me with the title of Open House Master ... sent a crew from Chicago to film me for two days. That was also the very first   ActiveRain Open House

They found me through posts of  other unique open houses... like A Three Day yard sale. and a Popcorn and Champagne Open House  prior to an auction.  Anyone who knows me, knows I don't do opens.. but now due to the publicity of blogging, I have gone National.

On Wednesday My Garden Party had 35 people show up. They came because of the blogging.

Recently I presented  a session at our board..GBBR, for Rookie agents.  Instead of telling the class why they 'should' blog, I told them why I blog.

I blog about my listings and link to other posts. I blog about neighborhoods and link back. I blog about the weather, the birds, the squirrels, and soon will be blogging about my beautiful new cat, Phoebe.

I blog answers to buyers and sellers questions.  I blog about other agents, transactions, vendors, restaurants, why I make my own appointments, what 2 questions I ask to get a listing...

Why I Blog has nothing to do with Why You Should!!
