I attended a conference of sorts titled An Afternoon in Los Angeles, which was put on by About.com. Because About.com is a profit-making vehicle for the New York Times, it treats all of its writers pretty well. First, we had lunch in a private garden at the Sunset Marquis Hotel. Glorious sunshine and no wind. Perfect weather.
Then we had a 3-hour session with our editors and a lively discussion with other writers during a couple of workshops. We brainstormed. Discussed what our readers want to find at our particular sites. I do the home buying and home selling website for About.com and have been writing articles / blogs for this site for 5 years. This is in addition to my services to the Sacramento community as a Sacramento short sale agent.
To my astonishment, part of the presentation centered on how I expanded my home buying and home selling website by writing articles about short sales. I wrote my first article in early 2006. This wasn't based on SEO results or AdWords but composed simply because I spotted a need on the horizon for this information. Today, I have written more than 65 articles about short sales, including a book, The Short Sale Savior, and Google recognizes my site as an expert source for short sales.
My husband, on the other hand, shot some fabulous photos, which I'm pleased to share with you. Most of these are in West Hollywood, where we are staying. The last photo, well, it sort of speaks for itself.
