Blogging for the PI

A few weeks ago I was approached by the Seattle PI’s blog moderator of the Seattle Real Estate Professionals to see if I would be interested in blogging on the PI’s site. Being the man with the most free time ever, I said yes and took the step necessary to get my account setup.
It took a little bit of time to get everything setup but now it is official, I am blogging on the Seattle PI’s website in the Seattle Real Estate Professionals section. It is pretty amazing to me since writing has never been my strong point and I’m just over a year being full time in the real estate industry.
It will interesting to see how it goes because right now blogs are getting 0-4 comments which is far from impressive and there doesn’t seem to be a high level of involvement from most the bloggers.
Using the PI’s blog gives authority/credibility to every post even though none of the bloggers are endorsed or represent the views of the Seattle PI and my first one is titled: Real Estate Licensing.
My goals for my participation are:
  • Increase the level of comments from other bloggers and non-bloggers
  • Improve my real estate blogging skills using research and calculated thought
  • Connect with other professionals and residents around the topic of real estate
  • To build my name professionally
Now this isn’t any easy task to do since I don’t know the readership base but judging from the number of comments there isn’t a lot of activity. A few of the PI’s bloggers comment but the level of involvement isn’t really high.
Another thing about this blog that hit me was that it isn’t a place to be really intuitive and research is required before blanket statements are made. When consumers are asking questions regarding a topic then it would be wise for that article to be factually sound and will make me a better writer, researcher and blogger all at the same time.

  3. Hi Toby,
    I\’m on the AR tour…and just wanted to congratulate you on writing for the Seattle PI.   I "applied" a while back and I have not received any response.   Although, Rain City Guide and my personal blogs are keeping me plenty busy.   Good luck and best regards!
