'If you can e-mail, you can blog'

Profile: Lockhart Steele, Curbed.com

“If you can e-mail, you can blog,” says Lockhart Steele, blogger of the real estate-centric Web site Curbed.com and managing editor of Gawker Media. Steele, whose Curbed.com site scores 200,000 unique visitors a month and boasts the New York Times as an advertiser, extols blogs as marketing devices.

Steele, who won an Inman Innovator Award this year in the Most Innovative Media Site category, reports on real estate events in New York from an offbeat perspective.
