While speaking to a member this week, they shared their desire to get back to blogging.
Their last post, almost 3 months ago, was well written with lots of good information, good eye candy and quite professional.
So I asked why haven't you written lately?
Their response was interesting ...
"I'm too much of perfectionist to put that kind of time in."
We talked about what she wanted to accomplish.. her own blog in her own voice.
Each blog does not have to be a Pulitzer Prize master piece.
We are real estate professionals not professional bloggers.
Being busy producing Realtors® we are using our blogs as a way to market ourselves and our properties. We need to be found on social media. We want to be transparent to future and present clients.
If you are going to wait until you write the perfect post, with the perfect set of photos, with a message to reach everyone...you may not be blogging very much.
There are some easier ways to get into that blogging grove.
Relax a bit, take a deep breath.
Go to your smart phone and see what photos you have taken in the past few days. I bet some of them are interesting enough to write a few paragraphs...after all they caught your eye. Now go share one or two in a blog.
My friend William Johnson
taught me many years ago about this technique.
He called it a photo blog. One picture, 50 words, put it in a few groups, put in your tag words, check your spelling, click save, review, and then hit publish.
You have a blog!
