I am a relatively new blogger with BiggerPockets; I have published 6 articles so far and this will be my 7th. Even outside of BiggerPockets, I am a relatively new blogger, having written my first article in March of 2013.
Last January, I was a speaker at an REO conference in Dallas and the panel I was on was focused on social media and it’s role in the REO world. One of the questions was; do you use blogging in any way and how so? I answered no, I had never blogged before and at that time, I had never even considered blogging! Additionally, I learned on that panel that it is not so scary to talk in front of a couple hundred people if you have the right attitude. The point of this story is: things can change incredibly quickly and opportunities can come out of nowhere, if you are looking out for them.
