    I’m a bit confused why Rain City Guide, with a grand total of 11 posts all year makes the list but my site, Seattle Bubble (80+ posts so far this year), does not. Hmm…

    Guess it’s because I’m not a real estate industry insider, just a guy who’s been blogging about Seattle real estate for 8+ years.

    Thanks so much Robbie for including my Struggling Investor blog on your list….and an impressive list it is! I can understand how it took you 22 hours to put this together. What I like is you took the time to say something about everyone of them not just the top 30. Most lists this long taper off to just a straight bullet point list.

    Great work!

      Scott, thanks for the great feedback. We wanted to put together the most comprehensive list of real estate blog resources covering a range of topics from investing to marketing. We didn’t just want to focus on large national brands, but also give attention to quality local resources as well. Each blog puts in the effort to provide such great content, the least we could do is give them a nice little introduction 😉 Thanks again!
