I’m woefully behind on updating my blogroll. The wife would say I’m woefully behind in getting the kitchen re-tiled, but that’s a blog post for another day. (Home Improvement/Tiling Tip #1 — Rent a tile saw. I don’t care what it costs, rent one. Trying to cut tile, particularly curves and odd shapes by scoring and using nippers sucks. It REALLY sucks)
But I digress…
Here are a few of our latest blogroll inductees, with a sample link to why they deserve to be blogrolled. (They deserve far more than being added to my blogroll, but that’s about all I can do.) These guys (and gals) are good. Read them, heed them, and learn from them:
RSSPieces: Mary McKnight is a WEALTH of information. On both RSSPieces, and her ActiveRain blog she freely shares tips, tricks and insight. Her ability to consistently deliver quality posts is amazing. (And I owe you that Podcast Mary, I have not forgotten. It’s just been kooky busy lately.) Here is just one (of many) gems.
Transparent Real Estate: Pat Kitano is new to the blogosphere but is taking it by storm. His mission? “To make sure everyone involved in a real estate transaction understands all its moving parts.” And he does a damn fine job of it. Hard to find just one gem here too, so I just picked the most recent post, a masterpiece on title agencies. Brilliant.
Behind the Curtain: “Bawldguy” Jeff Brown runs a real estate investment firm out of San Diego. His blog is chocked full of wit and wisdom. Here’s a beauty on the debate over stocks vs. real estate investing. Case closed.
Finally, let’s move south of Phoenix toward sunny Tucson. There’s a couple of pretty new bloggers down there that seem to have a great grasp of the Tucson market. The Tucson Foothills is running on TypePad, so I probably won’t be able to figure out the goofy trackback thing. (Typepad gives me fits. Is it just me?) John Schneider is a fellow Realtor down Tucson way and has some great thoughts, like this one on our pals at Zillow. And Dave Smith has just started up Tucson Real Estate in the News. Lots of insightful Tooson related stuff here, including a great piece on the winter visitors we all know and love.
If you visit/read these folks, I assure you that you won’t leave disappointed.
If I’ve told you in the past that I was going to add you to my blogroll, please remind me. I *know* there are more out there, but the dang sticky note I had them on has disappeared into Neverland. Going though my feed reader is too painful. So just shout out. Heck, shout out if I never told you I’d add you and I’ll sure check into it!
