Dear Justin Tomato / Coach Smith, 

This is a comment on "Crazy Myth #4: Posting Listings is too hard, time consuming and pointless".

You're brilliant,                                                           

Hello there Justin, I have been agonizing over the very same problem. First of all, we want our listings on Localism. Yes, we do.

I placed a bunch (35+) listings one day and had a real wake up call! I spoke to Bob Stewart that informed me each one was considered a blog. I didn't consider it a blog. I considered it a listing and expected for them to be categorized as such. No such luck. I ended up with 0 points for any over 10 (I had already blogged a few) and the rest were 0's.

I explained to him that the points really were not the important part for me (a little) but the advertising was way (WAY) important. I then realized that after the posting of the home listings (which I must sell) that's all the other commenter's would be seeing when they went to my profile. DEVASTATION! I couldn't delete them. It wouldn't let me. It showed 35+ more blogs than I had actually written and all anyone would see were listings!!! I got 2 courteous comments. Like they would care!!! But, thank you all anyway for the effort.

This is not helping my cause on Active Rain but....Google put an entire page of my listings together and featured it on the second page of the Search Engine's main page of my top key word search. Now, unfortunately I am borderline "computer challenged". What I have learned is SIMPLY because the starving must eat.

What is a wordpress? Can I use it on my 5 year old laptop? What would I need to make that function? What is the best software to blog successfully? My number one goal is to create good marketing materials. The second is the communication with other Professional Realtors and Associates.

I have attempted to kick out "quality blogs" much quicker than I would have so any interested party would find the real me and not just the can see all the listings at Deb's Blogs.

I want the best of both! I don't know HTML but am willing to learn. Any suggestions? Help!!!!!!!! Smile, thanks for listening to me vent. I'm going ahead and publishing this, Justin. We all need to know. Thanks, Deb




and Proud of it!  Deb
