Hi! I am mostly posting this because I seem to have taken a break from blogging…. I was blogging about everything and I sort of stopped for a few weeks… Maybe I needed the break…. I have been doing a bunch of stuff.
Some real estate, some politics and some spreadsheet work. I have had a tough start of the year with many random events hurting my business…. I had the suitcase full of cash, a buyer with heart surgery, a bad inspection,dad’s small stroke, dad’s research project …. Those type of things… Normally I do great but I guess after a while I didn’t want to talk about it… Or maybe its just the tail end of winter….
Well I am still selling houses in Boise, Idaho…. I have a couple of buyer leads….I thought about running for office again…. I sold the house after repairs quickly and for more than the last contract… So I guess what I want to say is that I am back in the game and trying to work up enthusiasm.
Today I started a new blog…. I went to several Real Estate classes and Political classes and I was told how easy it would be. I now finally have a sort of nice site. It has lots of room for improvement. I have some of my site linking to it but not all. I spent at least 6 hours on it and I couldn’t have done it without my housemate. I am now very bleary eyed and tired. The wordpress site seems very powerful but not intuitively easy like the activerain site. The problem with active rain is that they started charging for premium services and I think my blog might be hidden. I think I will try to set up pointers to both blogs so that I post in both places. I still need to get my Zillow and Skidoo pointers to my blog. I wonder if my political campaign manager (eldest son) could clean it up a bit. He did my political website plus worked on Congressman’s Minnicks site. I bet he could put some polish on it…. Just for fun my old logo… only I could manage to hook up the images together….. Well tomorrow is another day…
I am not running
What topics do you want me to blog about?
Hello this is my new blog intended for mostly Real Estate. This will be my third blog. My first is hosted on active rain (started in 2007) as a Real Estate Blog. The second is on 43ed state blues which is a political blog that I wrote while I ran for political office in 2008. Now I am back to selling homes. First a bit about me…
