Thanks for checking up on me… I’m alright

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty
Just checking in

For the past two years, I have had pretty much a daily routine, one post in the morning, on in the evening, but this last Saturday afternoon I posted a “I don’t feel like typing Saturdays” post and then went for over 48 hours without a post.

Well, starting this morning, I started getting calls. The first one was more of a question if Activerain was working properly and didn’t ask where I was, but the next four calls all asked if everything was alright since I hadn’t posted in a couple days. Two asked if I had actually run out of ideas and blog posts.

Well, everyone, I did actually run out of pre-written posts, but I certainly didn’t run out of post ideas! Here is what has happened: last week we started moving and between all my buyers and sellers I’ve been working with and that, I just haven’t had the time!

That is when they started asking about my pre-recording them with my voice recorder and having my voice recognition software translate the posts like had in the past. WELL, let me say after close to the 3 years I believe I have had the wonderful AT&T 8125 phone that I learned to use, and used it to help me with my business, last Monday it was finally time to upgrade!

I upgraded to what some consider the Holy Grail of cell phones, (the Iphone) but the problem is I haven’t figured out how to record full blog posts and then transfer them to my PC for translation. I keep trying, but it is recording 30 seconds of my post and then shuts off. So, I’ve been having to just record my idea and hopefully when I get more time, I will be able to get back to my habit of one post in the morning and one post at night.

So, watch out Activerain, I will be back. If someone wants to tell me of an application that will speed up my learning curve on the recording my blog posts that would be great!

Todd, I actually had NO idea you could speak a post and upload it....I must be WAY behind the times!  Iwould still never be able to think of two posts in one day!  That's quite an accomplishment in itself!

Todd, 

Arlene here, I know we had talked on Monday and you were busy in that move. How goes it? I know you were getting frustrated with the heat and were ready to give up when we talked.

Todd,

Not sure you would be looking for this, but I have used Utterz.com before and love it for the ability to record right from my phone and then imbed the recording into my blog.  Added bonus is it is another social network, so added exposure.
