Crippled by the Fear of Blogger's Blunder?

You know you should be blogging . . . and you have a blog right on your website . . . and the last post was made 3 months ago.  Yikes!  Are you overcome by the fear of blogging blunder?  Are you afraid you're going to say something to embarrass yourself?

You are not alone.  There are so many people out there who have good intentions, and can help others with their knowledge and experience, but they are very hesitant to blog because they are afraid of making a mistake.

Who among us does not make mistakes every day?  Really?  The pursuit of perfection is not a worthy goal . . . I never knew an interesting person that was perfect, or even close to it.

Just start blogging, and you'll get comfortable with the fact that you are not perfect and that there are people out there who will criticize you.  Hey, they are going to criticize you whether you blog or not, so you might as well get yourself out there in front of the people you want to do business with.  

Here are some ideas for a real estate professional to blog about:

  • Your real estate market.  Use year-end statistics compared with last year and talk about what they mean.
  • What prices have done over the past year
  • How houses still sell in the winter . . . even when it's below zero
  • Funny antidotes about showings or any real estate stories (careful not to use specifics about people/places)
  • New loan programs or opportunities for first-time homebuyers
  • Mortgage rates and what the predictions are for 2014, and what that might mean
  • Things to consider when planning to buy your first home

There are so many things you can blog about.  You have a lot to offer as a real estate professional.  A large portion of the public buys and sells houses, and knows enough about what you do to be interested.  Even if they are not in the market right now, if they are a homeowner or a potential future homeowner, what happens in the real estate market affects them.

Put a plan of action together and get blogging!
