Teen blogger finds real estate success

Summer jobs take writer from 'Pirates' film to Caribbean site

A teen blogger, who not long ago was writing posts about AP exams and Disney’s latest “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, is now a paid writer for several real estate blogs — including a site dedicated to Caribbean real estate.

Joseph Natividad’s contributions to a high school student-written blog site maintained by a San Francisco Bay Area newspaper catapulted him into a stint as a paid blogger. Natividad spent an hour or two per day assisting with the newspaper’s blog site. “I looked at it more as a hobby than as a chore,” he said.
