No one ever said blogging was easy.
I haven't posted here tons recently. For a guy who managed to dive right in to blogging, I feel like I've neglected my ActiveRain blog a lot recently. Sure, there's been holiday parties, me tearing an ear drum, me pulling a muscle in my back, and the usual things that get in the way of our blogging activities (we call them "life"); but none of that usually stops me. To be technical, none of that has stopped me either.
Lately, I've been concentrating a lot of my writing efforts onto my main site, www.RErockstar.com (as well as my simple as could be San Antonio photo blog using posterous). I've also been plotting and scheming for 2010 and where I want my site to go and how I want my business to grow. So here ActiveRain sits, collecting a bit of dust.
I still love ActiveRain and what it is, but lately I'm finding that it's not as consumer-centric as I'd like. Granted, my posts vary from consumer-based, to agent-based, to fun and goofy at times, so the consistency is not quite there in one firm category; but I'm not seeing the numbers I would like to out of ActiveRain (my outside blog rarely turns up in Google, which concerns me and when compared to my main site, the numbers look even worse). So, I'm going to step away from the keyboard for short spurts as I work out what direction this blog should take.
That doesn't mean I won't post, it just means that this place may continue to seem like a ghost town as I revamp all my decision making in preparation for the coming year. I want 2010 to be my break-through year. The one that you always look back on and say "that was the year I really started to become a real estate agent."
In the meantime, I will continue to visit and read as much as I can. There is no doubt that there are some great writers out here and way more knowledge that should ever be contained in one place. Keep doing what you're doing and enjoy your time. I hope you all have built great business plans for next year and I can't wait to see what the market will be like through 2010.
