Welcome to our new blog!
In keeping with this year’s theme of constantly improving upon the systems we have in place for better performance, we have made the switch from RealTown Blogs to WordPress while also moving the blog onto our own server.
The transition has been far from easy, to be perfectly candid. RealTown Blogs featured a remarkably simple, remarkably intuitive platform. I’m confident in time WordPress will be as familiar as RealTown had become.
Enough tech talk. What does the change mean to you? From a content standpoint, most likely not a great deal. I still will focus on a mix of local real estate and some of the larger issues facing the real-estate industry as a whole. Given I have two very different audiences – real-estate professionals on the one hand and the general public on the other – I can be accused of attempting to be all things to all people. In truth, I’m trying only to be one thing (interesting) for one person (myself.) I learned long ago, writing for oneself tends to be the most interesting, the most passionate.
For those of you who subscribe to this blog via e-mail there may be some blips as I work out the details of continuing the e-mail subscriptions. For those of you following the blog on RSS, you need only update your RSS viewer with the new feed address.
As for the 200-plus posts from our original blog, they will remain in their current location. I may move some of the more interesting posts here but there’s I’m not going to have duplicate content en masse.
And that’s all … the look you see now likely will change as I get more comfortable with the theme editors here. Soon it will be much closer to my current sites than what you see.
Until then …
