30 Real Estate Bloggers You Should Be Following On G+
There are so many reasons to blog these days from writing up a blog about your personal journey to developing expertise. Google+ is the place to be these days to find other people who are blogging about things that you want to hear and learn about. You have probably begun your journey into the Google+ world, quietly posting your blogs and adding a +1 to adorable little kittens that have nothing to do with real estate, and getting absolutely NO FEEDBACK OR SUPPORT! This isn't right! Your blog was really well thought out and would have been inspirational to many and yet nothing. Perhaps this is due to the fact that you aren't following the people who would be interested in your blog, who would be willing to critique it, and would be willing to share it to show their support of your efforts. In the Google Game you are going to want to be giving as much as you get! It is a symbiotic relationship between you and some of the top professionals in your field in which you give them feedback and support and they give you feedback and support. But who are the experts in your field??? Well, I have taken the liberty of collecting the articles and bloggers for you into this nice list so you can begin your reading and become an expert in real estate.
