Charlottesville Real Estate – Twitter Week in Review

Why do I post weekly reviews of my Tweets? Simple. I want that content to ultimately live on my site, and the post also gives me a chance to review what I was discussing the previous week.

  • First thought on Houselogic.com – It’s trying to be a Mint.com for homeowners. #
  • In Staunton for kid’s soccer game. Nice downtown. #
  • Love the Crozet Mudhouse. Riding my bike to meet buyer clients. #
  • Coaching soccer this morning in Crozet. Love it. #
  • Love that it’s 30 degrees in Crozet this morning. #
