30 real estate blog posts in 30 days

30 real estate blog posts in 30 days: challenge accepted!


I belong to a fantastic online community for real estate professionals called Active Rain.  It truly is a great place for people in the real estate industry to write blog posts to share knowledge (with each other and the public), and even blow off some steam by sharing stories 'from the trenches' of what we do each day.


I joined the site earlier this year with the full intent of blogging regularly as an avenue to promote my real estate business online, connect with future clients, and to learn from other Realtors around the country. Active Rain attaches a point system to blog writing, which I had thought was a perfect motivator for me! I was so excited and wrote several posts! One was even a featured post!

So, how have my blogging intentions panned out the rest of the year? Not as well as I had hoped unfortunately.  I could make a thousand excuses for why I didn't continue blogging after my first three posts - and believe me, in my head I've made all the guilt ridden excuses!  The truth is that it's my first year in real estate sales, I've had some success, got pretty busy, and ..... I just didn't blog.....  But hey, you can have excuses or you can have results, but you can't have both, right?!


Here comes the Active Rain Blogging Challenge to rescue my lagging motivation!  For the month of November I'm challenging myself to write a blog a day.  That's it, sounds like a piece of cake.  Hopefully by exercising my blogging muscles I will develop a healthy habit and continue blogging for the long haul.


So what do I get for completing the challenge, you ask?  EXTRA points of course!!!  Post one, done!  I'm looking forward to the rest of the month and beyond!

Well done, Christi!  Only 29 more to go.  We did the challenge a year ago and it was very good for establishing some blogging discipline!  Stay with it!

Christi,  If you blog here long enough and consistently enough you won't need to make excuses about not blogging. It truly is addictive. You will begin to blog because you can't not blog!  Here's to you next 29 posts!

Christi - the "point" - LOL - of this challenge is to get you points and get you used to it, if you have been off the wagon - you are the perfect candidate!    Good luck!  Stay with it!

It is good to see that you have accepted the November challenge.

Good for you!  I've only ever done it once...a 30 day challenge is not easy.  I'm sure you will feel great knowing you did it, and it should get you trained to blog more often once the challenge is over.
