    Connecting at #REplus22

    Starting two weeks ago, I decided to brush the cobwebs out of my blogging fingers by making sure to post something fresh every day… Because I’m fascinated by the growth (and potential) of green hydrogen, I’ve been focusing my energy by doing a deep dive on that industry. Interestingly, the green energy community is quite […]

  • Finding my voice… again

    Finding my voice… again

    It probably goes without saying that having a boss is one of the worst things you can do for our budding social media career. Back in the day when I first started running Rain City Guide (in March 2005!), it was incredibly helpful to be an outsider without any ties to the industry as I […]

  • I miss blogging.

    While the terms of service changes (and reversals) over at Instagram didn’t bother me much (they probably should have bothered me more), the changes did inspire me to have a few conversations around where original content should live. It seems the WordPress mobile posting and syndication tools have come a long way in the past few […]

  • Can you safely jump off a moving freight train?

    In college I had a friend who was very much into hopping freight trains.

I learned one really valuable lesson from this […]

    Real Estate WordCamp is Coming to NARdiGras!

    I’ve been working with the NAR team to put together a WordPress event at NARdiGras, and couldn’t be more excited that we’re ready to start announcing details! In a nutshell, we’ve broken the half-day event into two tracks — one for beginners and one for more advanced WordPress users — and the folks we’ve agreed […]

  • How important is creativity in your SEO campaign?

    A few months ago, the Council of Residential Specialists asked if I’d be interested in giving a webinar presentation on SEO.  Of course I was interested (It’s scheduled for tomorrow!) and in putting the presentation together, it forced me to reexamine the state of SEO… and how to really get value out of an SEO campaign. […]

  • Talking Real Estate SEO with Aaron Majors

    I’m working out of Portland this week in prep for the BuzzRE PDX event tomorrow (which is gonna rock thanks to an awesome speaker lineup!)… and the talk of the M Office is Aaron Majors’ success (and enthusiasm) for the SEO work he’s been doing on his Portland Homes site. Here’s the interview I just […]

  • BuzzRE OC Wrap-up!

    The BuzzRE  OC event was so awesome…   I met so many great people and the speakers came through with awesome presentations. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to join us! Some of the highlights were: Jon Lansner: Compared to any time in recent memore, there’s actually some good news to talk about […]
