The unintended consequences of blogging

Just a few seats left for ICSF Indie Broker Summit, July 17

A couple of years ago I was at a social event with a bunch of local bloggers — most are in the real estate industry. I overheard a conversation that was going on behind me less than a foot away. They were talking about this woman who is relentless, ruthless and unstoppable; they said she is a machine.

When I turned around to listen, they all started laughing. They were talking about me and my blog. That was a little more than two years ago and nothing has changed. There is a post on my blog everyday. These days I get some help from a neighbor who likes to write and from a past client who works in the real estate industry. They write a post a week and I write the other five.

They used the word "ruthless" because they are what I call friendly competitors.
