It's hard to believe that I've began writing on blogs three years ago today. I honestly didn't expect anyone to read what I had to say about mortgages. It almost began more as free therapy since I had to get what was bothering me about the industry off my chest. And thanks to the current mortgage landscape, I still have plenty to write about and there are so many forums with social media.
Three years ago, I had plugged away on Mortgage Porter until I was invited to be a contributing author at Rain City Guide, where I still post today. I write for a few other blogs now and then too. Social media has evolved during this time. I also enjoy "micro-blogging" in 140 characters or less on Twitter, where I post the rate quotes I'm providing Washington State consumers, various mortgage factoids and personal odds and ends. Facebook has become a place where I stay connected with family, friends and clients. My blogging and participation in social media has brought me so many great opportunities including being recognized by peers with the Washington Association of Mortgage Professionals 2009 Jim Fitzgerald Distinguished Service Award and being a panelist at RE Blog World in Las Vegas.
And it all started with this blog post…go figure!
Thank you for reading, commenting and for those of you who have selected me to be your mortgage professional. I'm honored.
