Does your REALTOR® blog? If not, why not? If they blog, does their blog seem to be an attempt at a blog post here and there randomly or is it a part of their business practice? Blogging is, or at least it should be, more than random thoughts about what restaurant they had lunch at yesterday. More than a blurb about the last parade through town, or their last open house experience. It should be a study (for the REALTOR®) and a reflection of knowledge that they have obtained about their town and the real estate business. Through blogging we are able to show an almost inexhaustable body of work that shows we study our business daily.
