Blogging might seem scary at first, but most new things are a little scary until you try them. I remember when my younger son Ryan started school. Even though we’d been to the playground many times, as well as school events for his big brother, Ryan was scared about getting on the schoolbus. He knew [...]
Most people equate social media to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. That’s a common mistake because that’s what people are talking about. Facebook and Twitter are making news, to get into the news … as they compete against each other. Many people are connecting online for personal reasons, i.e. Facebook is where families [...]
Getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me. In the King and I, Anna tells her new students how she wants to get to know them. Our lives are full of relationships with those we’re related to by birth, by where we live, [...]
So many people say they can’t write. What does that really mean? If you started a discussion, they would probably talk comfortably for 20 minutes, some more than an hour (stop laughing now). Everyone is different. Some people like to read, others would rather watch a movie and still others might enjoy good music while [...]
Blogging is perfect for sharing even small tidbits of information. When you realize you’re doing this with a friend by writing a long email, or talking forever on the phone … it’s time to blog. In fact, I use blogging to take notes at a seminar, to collect and sort out information or put my [...]
HubSpot has some great and FREE tools to analyze your web site and give you feedback plus recommendations on how to improve your site. Today I found a new tool that analyzes what you are writing! While it’s focus is on better press releases, I’ve had fun pasting some of my blog posts into the [...]
Once upon a time, we only got mail in old fashion mailboxes. We got mail at home, and sometimes we got mail at work … but our children don’t realize that’s the only way we got mail before they were born. Now we get email, and it comes to our “inbox” which differs based on [...]
Active Rain (email me, firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation) is a wonderful community of 140,000+ people involved in all aspects of real estate, mostly realtors sharing ideas, success and helping each other grow their businesses. Today I read a funny article, all about a reporter interviewing realtors. His agenda was set (he did all the talking [...]
While there are more than 100 million blogs worldwide, there are hundreds of thousands of people who don’t know what they are, or realize how powerful they are. Here are several examples of how powerful blogging has become … and if you aren’t familiar with blogging (check out this great video on blogging basics). Today [...]
I’m at a technology seminar today. I’ve been to sessions on networking, podcasting and now blogging. There are some really great presenters here and lots of product demos if you want to walk around a bit. Julie Roads, owner of Writing Roads (copywriting for print and web), did a fantastic job talking about Blogging for [...]
