One year ago today, I tentatively hit the ‘publish’ button on my very first real estate blog, Is the Sky Falling? Chicken Little and Real Estate Market Predictions. I didn’t really know what to expect. Would anyone care about what I had to say? Do people really read real estate blogs? Would I have enough topics to blog about?
15 people read my blog that day (and I suspect my Dad may have read it a couple of times, thanks Dad).
Well I’m pleased to report that one year later, 31,500 people have visited my blog. Some people even liked it enough to visit again (I actually had nearly 45,000 total visitors last year). I’ve learned a few things along the way:
- I have a lot to say (not a huge surprise to people who know me personally). I ended up writing 240 posts and my list of upcoming blogs is already 100 posts long.
- Not everyone likes my opinion and they aren’t afraid to tell me. Whether or not you agree with me, I LOVE getting comments. Keep ’em coming.
- People actually read my blog. I love when a new client or random person I meet at a party references a blog I wrote months ago.
- My readers enjoy a little controversy and like when I tell-it-like-it-is. This industry is full of enough hot air and I’m glad I’ve been able to provide a different perspective.
So without further ado, here are the Top 10 Most Popular Blog Posts of the last year:
A huge ‘thank you’ to all my readers! And if you have a blog idea, please feel free to comment below (you know how I love comments…)
