The creative blogging juices, sometimes the posts just ooze out the ends of the finger tips.
The times when the blog posts are already written inside. Pour out in a flow of recycled electrons like warm honey. But when hunt and pecking on the Active Rain real estate blogging post platform, there is a teeter totter, a dangling set of scales in front of you. As you shape, craft, build a blog post. And in addition to the imagery, the video embeds, the helpful links, you shake and bake some extra seasoning. Sprinkled like moon dust to fine tune the final real estate blogging post product. To hit the target. To land it a spot on the front page search engine index.
And then the fork in the real estate blogging road happens, appears.
And you reach for the tone button. Adjust the bass, treble, remove with EQ the middle mud. If the end all was a gold star feature spotlight, you could smoosh the AR staff behind the desks pinned to the wall at the glass Emerald City HQ in the upper left hand corner of the country. By adopting a bit of a brown nose. Taking on a little Jack Horner stance with the thumb plum pulling. Feathering your cap with something that rubs off on the AR image for blog post fodder spill and splash. For the daily dining on the reader board of what's good today to scan and digest. Where some days it is slim pickings with market reports gaining accolades. Top honors.
Without the extra sprinkle, squeeze of seasoning that tailor makes the blog post to have a little slant to your brand, your hyper local area. Where you list, twist and peddle properties.
So instead of the gold star, you opt for branding, promotion and linkage to other work on this and other platforms. Down shifting and venturing off road, away from the AR information highway alone. Taking the high road off road. For the points, blue ribbons outside the playground. The sandbox not just colored in shades, hues that match the blue and gold AR logo.
Have you ever written an Active Rain real estate blog post and wired it with a little more local TNT charge, did not water it down to get the gold star?
Instead had another agenda in mind to help bolster some other channels in your media stream? Like not being valedictorian by taking the harder college accelerated, advanced harder courses. That are not weighted for the more difficult results you earned. Instead of ace-ing the general courses. To play it safe, score big. To game the system and get one of the top four honor parts.
Well the real estate blog word meter says we hit the 300 count and have to shut it off. Wrap it up. Put the blog hose end back in the saddle of the holster handle. Screw back on the cap, grab the printed receipt. Yes please, need one for taxes, expense records. And then off to hit the Maine real estate open information highway. Have a super 4th of July celebration with your family and friends!
