Blogs, Blogs, Blogs

Blogs, we keep hearing about them but what are they and how can we enjoy them. Well, blogs are a frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links. They usually center around either a person or a topic. With the creation of various publication tools on the Internet writing your own blog is as easy as sending an email.

I thought it would be interesting to go over all the various sites that will help you blog for yourself as well as break down many blogs by their topic and how they relate to real estate as this is of course a real estate blog.

First of all, I will go over some websites that will allow you to begin blogging yourself. Personally we use Blogger. Blogger is owned by Google and comes with all the tools one would need in order to publish their own thoughts online. Best of all it is free. TypePad is another popular blog website. It offers powerful tools and hosting features. It will cost you about $50 a month to use. A third popular blog site is Wordpress. Wordpress comes with all the necessary tools and is free unless you want to host it with a third party.

Now that we know the tools to use in order to publish our own blog we should look at what type of blogs are on the Internet. This might give you some ideas as to what you would like to write about.

Some of my favorite real estate blogs are:
