My Reflections After One Full Year Of Blogging

One year ago I had only heard the word "blog" maybe a handful of times. I didn't fully understand what it was and quite honestly wasn't terribly interested in finding out. Fast forward one year to today Real Estate Blogging in Phoenix, Arizonaand not a day goes by that I don't think about our blog, and what it provides for our clients. I wasn't a believer at first, but after some convincing by Chris, I began to see the light. As we have always said, our blog's purpose is to provide our present and future clients with some insight into our office. Sometimes we have serious, in-depth conversations, maybe analyzing some bit of data, or the implication of a current situation on the Phoenix real estate market. But other times we experience things in our daily activities that are just downright humorous. I truly enjoy sharing all of these things with our audience. If sharing these little treasures means that we gain a new valued client, great!! If all this blog does is provide our readers with a tiny piece of valuable information regarding the Phoenix real estate market that they wouldn't have otherwise had, then we've succeeded. And so far, it's been a great success. If I may say so myself.

I must admit, it's been quite challenging for me at times. Sometimes writer's block, 'er blogger's block, takes over and I go into a complete lock-down. I'm amazed daily by the amount of content on Jay Thompson's "The Phoenix Real Estate Guy" blog, and Jonathan Dalton's "Dalton's Arizona Homes Blog". Jonathan's cheating a little bit, he is professionally trained in journalism, so this stuff just comes easy to him, but it still takes time and energy to write great posts day in and day out. I can only hope to be a fraction of the blogger these guys are. Oh ya, they're great real estate agents as well!! Let's not forget what are true purpose here is.

I'm looking forward to sharing more and more bits of information and experiences with our audience for many years to come. I can only hope that our audience will enjoy reading about our experiences as much as I enjoy sharing them.

Here's to the lack of blogger's block!!!
