The biggest BlogTourUSA.com event yet!

Wow, I’m so happy with how the fiesta turned out! Until today, I had only ever met two other RE bloggers in person, and one of them doesn’t blog anymore. Looking back, this is something all of us should have done a long time ago. it was great to meet everyone, and I hope we can all meet up again.

I want to thank Kristal Kraft and Rob Blake for working with me to put this event together, Joe and Rudy for inspiring the event and contributing to our panel, Vali for manning the registration desk, Veronica for contributing a door prize, Mariana for taking up a tip collection, and Jessica for helping to rig the drawing. :p

The only thing I’m disappointed in, is that I didn’t take enough good pictures. Here are a few, with more to come from the bloggerazzi.

We had our fiesta at Garcia’s of Denver. I’m very happy with the way they worked with us. If you ever want to put on a seminar in South Denver, I highly recommend them.

Meredith Hanson, Joanne Hanson & Jason Adams drove all the way from Dillon. They’re shooting the breeze with Jennifer Steck and Doug Lindstrom.

The Blogmobile arrives!

Vali took up the task of greeting everyone at our check-in table.


Joe and Rudy take the stage. Look at that crowd!

Rob advises the crowd on SEO. 23 existing bloggers, plus quite a few more who were interested in starting a blog attended. This might be the biggest crowd of RE bloggers ever assembled! At least for the next few days.

Real Estate Bloggers Unite!

Today is the day! The tables are set. Blog Fiesta starts at 11:00. Go here for details and maps. I look forward to meeting you all!

If you were to late to register, or are unlucky enough to live anywhere but Colorardo, fret not. This web site was created to promote the event, but now the event will promote this blog! Everything we talk about at the event will make it to this blog in the next few days. On top of that, this blog has a new purpose.

For quite a while now, I’ve been looking to create a blog that compliments the REMBEX search engine. Initially, I planned to build a “how to” blog building site. But there were two problems. One, lot’s of other bloggers are already dishing out plenty of advice. In fact, I’ve been making a list of these posts for months. Second, and more importantly, dishing out blogging my own blogging advice is great for prospective bloggers, but doesn’t honor the bloggers already included in the REMBEX search engine. So, while there’s a primer on blog building, this site’s main focus will be to cover the views of other real estate and mortgage bloggers.

I have an impressive list of interviews with nationally recognized bloggers in the Q, plus even more who have committed to participate. Interviews from Jim Duncan, Jay Thompson, Jim Cronin, and many of the Colorado bloggers attending our party are already published. You can view the whole list over in the right column. Go ahead and throw this blog in your RSS reader, this is going to be a lot of fun!

Blog Fiesta is just a week away!

In just seven days, we’ll be talkin’ blogs and eating tacos. If you haven’t registered yet, well, giddyup!

I’m sure the burning question that all of you have on your mind is, “what will happen to this blog once the event is over?” Ok, maybe it never even occurred to you. I’m going to tell you anyway. Blog Fiesta will be widening it’s focus nationwide. I’ve been busy interviewing nationally recognized bloggers in the mortgage and real estate industry. These interviews will start publishing this weekend!. On the 18th, a redesigned blog will be revealed with a focus on bringing you the perspectives of other RE bloggers.

Nobody’s a true expert on real estate blogging just yet. Let’s get there together.
