What Would You Do If Your Broker Said Stop Blogging?

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes Realty - BH Referral Associates

Did you know that many businesses have banned some technologies.. technologies such as facebook, IM and Skype?

According to Peter Bradwell, a Demos researcher and author of the UK think tank demos report, believes that the benefits outweigh the risks.

He also pointed to the use of Facebook and LinkedIn in developing working relationships, although he admitted that a lot of organizations tend to ban these applications..

Read the full story because its really educational and useful!

I remember about a year ago..reports of bloggers being sued started to surface on the net.  Hmmm..look where we are at now...a lotta suing going on..enough to make a real estate broker nervous or even any business owner for that matter. 

What would you do if your broker told you to stop blogging or else?

Would you throw the independent contractor card out or would you walk away..either meaning walking away from the conversation or walk away with your license in hand? 

I got the willies just even thinking about having to make a choice like that..it would take me oh a whopping 5 seconds....I'm a pretty easy going person but whatever you do don't take my social networking away from me!

I am a broker-owner and will admit some folks do need to manage their blogging better ,  ie...not all day long.  And I also wish some agents would start blogging.

Wow, I don't know what I'd do.  Actually, I would have to move on to a broker who didn't try to put their agents in a tiny little box.  Fortunately I don't have that to deal with,

One of the cool things about working for a brokerage designed around new media and communications technologies... like blogging... is that the broker should never say stop.

This among many other reasons is why I am a broker. The first time I was with a company that said, we do not allow that, I was GONE!

I'd take my license and walk out the door. Having a Brokers license means I can walk out a bot easier.
