Does Blogging Work?




When asked if blogging works.

I replied with a few questions.



  • Does one print ad sell a house? 
  • Does one postcard sell a house?
  • Does one For Sale sign sell a house?
  • Does placing the property in the MLS sell it?
  • Does one impromptu open house do the trick?
  • Does one radio show sell a house?
  • Does burying a St. Joseph statue sell a home?
  • Does one nosy neighbor sell a house?
  • Does one blog post sell a listing? 
  • Does networking with others sell a house?


It's a combination of the above, creativity, experience and a hard work.



There are many other things that blogging has done.


  • I have found many buyers and sellers from blogging.
  • I enjoy blogging and the instant gratification of the comments.
  • I wrote and had a book published because of blogging.
  • I left a big box company after 18 years because of advice received from blogging.
  • I started HomeRome Realty with the help and confidence that came from blogging.
  • I have my own live radio show and blogging has been an influencing factor on my success.
  • I speak with an AR member everyday because of blogging.
  • I have found many buyers and sellers from blogging. (This one was worth repeating.)
  • I have sent and received numerous referrals from blogging?
  • I have made tremendous friendships both business and personal from blogging.


For me blogging does work!

How about for you?
