IF YOU CAN TALK, YOU CAN BLOG!!!
When we are about 1 year to 18 months of age, we learn to talk....We put sentences together soon after that...That is the first step to blogging ! You heard it right! Talking is essential to being able to blog!
Many agents do not even TRY to write a blog post---I just found that out; maybe I knew it at some level but I had someone tell me that just now and I believe it!
I think that all it takes is an interest in a subject; if you can carry on a conversation about it, you can blog about it!
"But it does not take a "writer" to learn to blog" is what I told this agent ---
That, in my humble opinion, is the problem people have with blogging; they just don't understand that putting down on paper statistics or local information does not take a master writer! I was not a writer and I have expanded my writing now so that many people now read my posts!
All it takes is an interest in becoming informed so you can inform...this wonderful business of real estate is not a matter of taking people into houses now and writing up offers---it has become much more than that.
The public does not want to buy a house if they don't know anything about the state, the county, the town or village and the STREET they may end up living on!
In my opinion, if you can talk, you can write--at least you can write information and statistics down in such a way that the public finds it interesting--nothing more than that! That is not going to require a degree in literature--as I said if you can talk and carry on a conversation, just write it down as if you are talking about it---that is the key; no mystery to it! And those who succeed at blogging have discovered that.
HOW DO YOU VIEW THE IDEA OF BLOGGING---DO YOU THINK IT NECESSARY TO BE A "WRITER" TO BLOG???
