Normally I won’t “promote” a blog until it’s been going for at least a few months. Usually one needs time to see if 1) the blogger is committed; and 2) the blogger can put at least some semblance of coherent sentences together.
But I’m telling you, Bonzai Real Estate Blog by Mike Farmer, is going to be a good one.
I first met Mike on RELiberation, Point2 Agent’s community blogging platform. I was immediately struck by Mike’s insight and humor ”” and his ability to communicate his thoughts in the written form.
See “Real Estate in A Brave New World” for an example.
Call me Pollyannaish, call me Panglossian, call me a cheerleader or a died-in-the-wool fool sporting rose-colored glasses, but I foresee a brave new world in real estate, and in this one, no Soma is required and freedom of information will break you or make you. All that’s required is to pay attention, get wired to the internet, use the best of the old practices, work hard and gain the knowledge necessary to be a bona fide expert who possesses the service skills of a top-notch waitress at a Texas roadhouse.
Anyone that can use Panglossian in a sentence deserves credit (and yes, I had to look it up).
What is the point of Bonzai?
From the “About” page:
The purpose of Bonzai is to write. Love of writing is the main motivation. But like for all writers, readership and input is important. The hope and intent is to create something interesting and entertaining in regards to the broad subject of real estate that will tweak the imagination of readers and make a somewhat dry subject pleasurable and informative enough to subscribe to and return to.
Trust me, it will be interesting and entertaining.
Welcome to the Blogosphere Mike. Now you are committed.
