It's their blog and they should be allowed to "position it" anyway they wish. If certain posts are not of interest to me I ignore them and move on. But we should police what people want to focus on in their blogs.

Freedom of blogging Michael.

Variety is the spice of life. I like to show that I am an expert in my local market and want engage people both realtors and consumers with blog posts on topics that I find interesting . If I have a property to sell I have no problem posting it here as this should be a forum for us to promote our business as well.
As we need variety in our everyday lives so it should be in the "Rain".
Good morning Michael. If I see a just listed or sold heading along with a market report I pass them by. Like you I want to see a variety.
Since AR is a blogging site, and a paid one unless you meet certain criteria, people blog about whatever they want to their own audience. Some well known bloggers here have many listings, many local market stats posts as well as a variety of posts about a variety of topics. Others choose to limit their posts to one type of topic such as listings. Some may use other internet platforms for other purposes than AR.
Yes, I think most that comment prefer variety. But, everything depends on your objective. Are you trying to get AR members to comment or local customers to find you?
Good morning Michael. I want to see variety as much as possible. Only one topic just doesn't do it for me.
Make it a great weekend!
People post what they want, and I support that choice.

I am with you, Michael, I like a mix of topics to get to know the person that is posting.

Live and let blog.

Michael Thornton I also agree with Debbie Gartner, it all depends on what the blogger's objective is for blogging. I like variety myself.
I like to read about the personal interests of members and I also enjoy seeing their photographs.
I like to provide a mix of blogs with stories i face every day, my listings, some market reports and advice. I write to reach consumers, i write to reach other agents and some days i just hope anyone will come take a look.
I agree with Debbie's comment.
It doesn't matter to me what somebody blogs about. If I'm interested, I'll read it.
I enjoy reading a variety of things, but I do admire those who keep their nose to the grindstone and sacrifice interactions with peers while creating good seo for their businesses.
Michael Thornton - I think there is a good mix of everything here. And good news is, we can select what we want....
perhaps they should have a section indexed as listing.
80% of REALTORS want others to know about the listing and prices.
They could filter listing, local home prices when ONE INVOKE it....
Tools not there....
michael, are you telling me your not interested on the home that just came on the market in south miami?? hmmm how particular you are. :) my favorites are helpful hints to make our job easier and better.
None of my business what someone wants to blog about. If it interests me, I comment, if not I move on. A
Yes to your thinking. Who are you, why and how is the memory behind the act. Listings come and go...people are the pay-off
I prefer to read about interesting subjects or areas as well. Chances are I wont read or comment on a blog about a listing. As others have said though if they want that to be their blog, it's their choice.
I do enjoy learning, reading and attending local events.
Our blogs are ours and we can choose our topics. No one forces us to read any particular post. Personally I enjoy the variety, and even enjoy seeing listings and market reports.
On my social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) I try to incorporate a little bit of business with a little bit of personality. I like to think I do the same here on Active Rain.
