This past week, another milestone was achieved on the White Oaks Blog that I would have thought was unfathomable when I started this site: Blog post #1000. 1,000 different articles on life and real estate in San Carlos! And when you consider that the average blog post is at least 600 words, that’s over 600,000 words typed on the site! It’s no wonder that I’m already on my second computer, and #3 is probably not too far down the road.
In some respects, writing 1,000 different articles on a city with a population under 30,000 would seem to be a daunting task. But when you dig below the surface, there’s a lot that goes on in our little city — there’s the downtown, the schools, the parks, the outsourcing of public services, and of course the one topic that seems to be of prime interest to just about everyone: Real Estate. We are lucky enough to live in a amazing little slice of the world, and in one of the most dynamic times in our history. So finding material to write 1,000 articles about was actually much less difficult than finding the actual time to write them. Thank goodness for mobile technology, because it has enabled me to capture the lightning in a jar before I could forget it.
I hope that there are another 500 or 1,000 ideas rattling around in my head, and that I have the time and desire to write them down. It has been a ton of fun creating this site and watching it grow to where it is today. I have met a lot of great people from the site, and it has become the core to my real estate business. It has also served as a great way to indulge one of my lifelong passions — writing.
So a huge thank you to those that have followed the blog and have taken the time to comment on the site over the past 1,000 posts. As I’ve said before, the direction of the site is far more influenced by what you say, rather than by what I write.
Now, it’s off to the second thousand set of posts!
