When I started to blog over a year and a half ago, I really had no direction, no idea what I was doing or where this would take me. I have never declared to be the authoritative blog. I don't go heavy into the politics of Real Estate and I steer clear of the heated discussions about Zillow, Redfin or any new technology. I have never quoted anything Latin on my blog and I certainly do not air out my laundry on my blog.
But I still blog.
I blog about my local area. I stick to what I know and I know Queens Real Estate. Sure there are agents who sell more and some that list more than I do. But none of them blog. I am almost the only Realtor that even has a blog, let alone blogs the way that I do. There are blogs that talk about their listings and blogs that repeat what articles say word for word, like snipping them out of the newspaper. But I feel that I have stood out. I am doing what no other Realtor or Company is doing. So for right now, I shine.
This past August, Ralph Roberts published a book "Foreclosures for Dummies" and believe it or not, he added me as a contributor! I was very flattered and so thrilled to get my complimentary book and I have read it from front to back. My take? Anyone who is looking to buy foreclosures should read this book. Right now you can buy it in your local Barnes and Nobles book store or you can click right here to go directly to Amazon.com.
Tomorrow , er Today, I will sitting on a panel for the LIBOR MLS TECH FAIR. How cool is that? I will be speaking at the sold out event with the "Big Boys". Sitting with me will be Blog Tour Boys, Sellsius, Dan Green from The Mortgage Reports and Linda Davis from Eastern CT Real Estate Blog.
Hopefully, after tomorrow I will begin breathing again and I will update you on the skinny about blogging, but for right now I am feel all hyped up and nervous.
