Choosing to not publish archives in my monthly notes is one of the more difficult decisions I’ve made this year.
I wanted to focus on the moment, the content and the reader. Not being able to link back to last month’s note forces me to focus on writing right now and to write more descriptively and concisely; I don’t have “see last month” or ” â€¦ in February I noted” as a literary crutch.
That said, I’ve found great enjoyment in writing these monthly notes – target audience being my readers here, consumers, and admittedly other real estate professionals (but I have yet to think about writing for that segment other than, “I better not write that – other Realtors read this.”
If you find subscribing to near-daily emails from my real estate blog too much (I probably would) you might find that my monthly notes, including a summary of the more notable posts of the previous month, valuable.
