RSS Pieces is Not Just Chocolate and Peanut Butter

I’ve got to tell you that Mary McKnight over at RSS Pieces has some great ideas on how to approach your blog and grow your online exposure. If you haven’t seen any of her posts lately, check her out over at the ActiveRain Network. Mary approaches her online marketing very methodically, as a former chemical engineer this appeals to me, has some great guidance; which can be seen in one of her latest analysis, The Lazy Man’s Guide to Real Estate Blogging.

In her post she give a few recommendations, and the associated costs on how to use your blog, even if you don’t have time. She offers ghost blogging as a suggestion, as well as syndicating content from others. In addition, she advocates guest blogging which is an interesting way to get content and create relationships with other opinion leaders in your community. Finally, she advocates generating revenue from your blog by signing up for an AdSense account, and who can argue with making money?

You are so right about Mary. I've only been blogging for about a month. I had the good fortune of finding Mary's RSS Pieces blog shortly after I got started. Since then, I haven't come across anyone who gives as generously as Mary does. Her posts are packed with juicy tidbits that have been so helpful to me. If one wants to know anything about search engine optimization or effective blogging, Mary has got the goods. Thanks for giving her a little recognition! We'll all be better off if we can keep the REBlogGirl talking.

Hey, thanks for the mention and kind words from Norm. I hate to see people taken advantage of when it comes to SEO and I definitely want to see real estate professionals succeeds in blogging, so the best way for me to influence both those things is to share the knowledge I have garnered over the past many years in the industry.
