Maine Real Estate For Sale !


The Copy And Paste Machined Blog... (Pointing) There's One.

The blogger has a seven paragraph machined, ghost written real estate blog post.

Copy and pasted. No images, no video embed, just whatever came out of the box that was from hunt and peck chicken photoa paid, hired ink and feather service.

Then the next blog done on the channel is a skimpy short, sweet with no time put into the post.

A few lines, skinny minnie.

How do you hunt and peck? Tap tap tap? Arrange those media stream electrons?

One blog post worthwhile, store bought. Generic but safe and pertinent.

That like the frozen store grocery pizza could be thawed. Sliced up onions, green peppers, hot sauce and fresh ground black pepper added. Aw what the heck. Toss on some more pizza cheese. Could have been tailor made, crafted and shaped ihoulton maine market square photonto the local approach finished blog post product.

Those are the tastiest.

With you adding some input, perspective, home made seasoning, reasoning.

To sweeten the sauce. Enrich the online experience.

The other blog post a hit and run, slapped wham bamm together.

But not copy and pasted. Just something to say that I blogged today.

Do you remember how home work passed in with that approach translated when report cards came out quarterly?

Worthwhile blogging is like anything in life.

The guy or gal on the other end of the signal that is supposed to be enticed to come back for more will not if they scratch their head. End up asking themselves where is the beef? Why waste my time? Blog slower, pack, put more of the good stuff in the grocery bag to go. The little white box with the wire handles for the take out. To leave a sweet, not sour taste in the readers, listener, watcher of your full meal deal blog posts.

Serving up consistent, buffet loaded blog posts that add value to the experience for the very busy buyer and seller.

That's the goal, target, in the job description of a real estate blogger. Didn't you get the memo? Would you enjoy following your own work if on the other side of the real estate office desk? Across the room from the hunt and peck on the lap top? What type of real estate blogger are you and what is your goal for 2014 for change or improvement? Do you have a just for fun, more personal stand alone blog post collection that gets weeded, feeded, watered and uploaded too? You should.

Andrew you really cracked me up with this one. You see the good, bad and the ugly here. Some have great content, others copied but at least yours are always well done and interesting.

Andy, I have certain "building block" items that recycle post to post along a theme, a common element of "why live in _____ community" to go along with the custom part of search for homes with _______ feature.  Still, never a doubt that it's us behind the keyboard, can't hide that.  Templates are there though for monthly market reports, subdivision reports, etc., not going to reinvent the wheel, just spiff out and publish them monthly updated version.

Noah ... Have conversation and make it something you know a little about that others can use. Or ponder something together and invite comments. The best blog posts are the ones where they are like an iceberg... 9/10ths down in the comment trail and pot luck supper special, contributed too and a community affair, experience. Happy Holidays Noah!

L and B .... Home made and original, trumps store bought and everywhere you turn sameness. To stand out from the herd be heard, shouting does not help. Making it worthwhile creative does. Think audience, increasing the size of it by expanding your menu to please the crowds.

Andrew:  I can't seem to get a template going with my posts on mortgages ... just as mortgages are different each and every time, it seems my approach to the topic(s) I cover must be too.  I WISH I could cut and paste!!  Just not in me, I guess ...

You are better not to and just write about this situation happened today with a borrower and go through the dips, curves and how you helped them. Or had to get them bankable after six months of do this, don't do have a slew of customers, talk about without naming their situations that someone in the audience can relate too as well.

Andrew you sure made a great point. So many view blogging as chore and not as a rewarding experience that will bring you new customers. How did you make out with the storm, did you get a lot of ice?

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Love this post!

Andrew - I really love your whole analogy.  Let's face it, we blog so that people will get to know us, our personality, and why we are relevant.  A ghost cannot do that.
