What's A Quick Way To Write A Blog

So you have a busy day, but you want to get a quick post written. My favorite way is what we call a photoblog.  This technique was taught to me by William Johnson. Simple and easy peasy.

Just take a photo, any photo on your phone, we all have access to our smartphone, and there is always something that caught our eye if it was interesting enough to photograph, say why. And that's how you write a quick blog.

At a holiday party last night, the hostess received this cloth sign and loved it so much that I had another friend hold it up for a photo.

This quick blog is not going to get you on the first page of google. It is not going to make your phone ring. And it's probably not going to get you a listing or a property sold.

But it is a quick way to write a blog.

Good evening Margaret. I miss seeing William Johnson daily but do remember his thinking.

I find I sometimes have to write about just was going on directly in my world, and at least some aspect comes to life after that.

Sheila Anderson Wisdom never outgrows anything all that much. Evergreen content always works! ;)

Wow ! A feature and I just wanted a quick post so I could go to bed early. But then realized  I had to watch the Ravens!!

Morning Margaret.

Just because this is a real estate related site, it doesn't have to be everything real estate.  Take Ron and Alexandra Seigel they post photos all the time.  Make it a great day

Laura Cerrano Writing about our day to day experiences is what makes a blog unique and ours.

James Dray Photos can be real estate related or not. The variety of information can be interesting and show the blogger's personality.

Good morning Margaret. Who says a shortcut can't be fun? And sometimes, that is all the time you have. Enjoy your day!

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - great idea. Those short post convey a message too.  This info doesn't flow every single day!

Hi Margaret... I'm not one likely to take a picture and post a quick blog... just not my style and I never remember to take pictures. But I am happy you did... as I love this Cat Wisdom. I've always said cats are soooo smart!

Quickest way to fetch a pail of water? Ask Jack & Jill. They simply went up the hill. Blogging, commenting and posting are as simple as the doing of them

As I sat here pondering what to write about today,  I opened AR and saw your featured post!  Doesn't even have to be a picture I took today or yesterday.

Posted by Margaret Goss, Chicago's North Shore & Winnetka Real Estate (Baird & Warner Real Estate) 2 months ago

Great photo and the words are purrfect. You never know a photo like that may show a potential buyer or seller that you are a cat lover and get you the listing or at least the call.

Margaret, a great idea - short, sweet, to the point and well-crafted.  
I hope it brings you some cat lover clients.

Hi Margaret- simply put...wonderful. Wordless Wednesday falls into this category and many love it. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

That is a great way to blog when you have had a hard day at work or your brain is just not at its best. Thanks for the reminder.

Elyse Berman, PA Sometimes we may get so caught up trying to write the 'perfect' post that we write none.

Posted by Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) 2 months ago

Kathy Streib This is so right for wordless Wednesday.   Post one relevant photo, write a minimum of fifty words and you have a blog.

Hi Margaret:

Love that cloth sign and the cat wisdom, and it's perfect for illustating your point. Early on in my blogging career I learned my camera is my best friend.

People like to look at photos and not just read, especially if it speaks to their emotions in some way, makes them laugh, etc. And buyers love seeing photos of houses and communities, among other things.

Jeff

I'm here for inspiration. This post is a great idea! 

Posted by Lizette Fitzpatrick, Lizette Realty, Lexington KY MLS - Kentucky Homes (Lizette Realty - Richmond KY) about 2 months ago

Lizette Fitzpatrick, You have been missed. So take a look at the photos on your phone. One of them should spark a fifty-word blog.  And there is so much inspiration. Take a look at the Q&A and have some fun.
