Welcome to CallChrisToday.com!
September 4, 2008
Finally. I’ve been searching diligently for a new domain name for the past year or so and finally I think I’ve found the perfect fit. Some of my clients may remember my web address as www.YourGulfCoastAgent.com, but after a while I came to the realization that this was just too hard to remember or type into the address bar. With 18 letters only a trained athlete could muster the energy to visit my site. Ok, I’m exaggerating a bit!
Then I made the switch to an even more ridiculous domain name: www.MyFancyBlog.com. Sure, go ahead and laugh. Can you imagine how silly I felt telling people my web address and email address over the phone? Hey, it’s a catchy web site name, but for a Realtor it is never good to have your clients laughing at you from the start. Ok, you can stop laughing now. Seriously. Stop. Thank you. That fruity domain, along with www.YourGulfCoastAgent.com, are conveniently redirected right here to www.CallChrisToday.com.
My new domain, as you have probably deduced, is simply www.CallChrisToday.com. It is pretty easy to remember, in my opinion, but only time will tell. Oh, I have it committed to memory, personally, but we’ll see if my existing and future clients feel the same.
www.CallChrisToday will be quite different than my past sites. This site is technically a Blog, but designed to appear more like a newspaper. Are you familiar with Blogs and Blogging?
According to Wikipedia:
A Blog (a contraction of the term “Web log”) is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
www.CallChrisToday.com is a Blog, created and maintained by yours truly, which focuses on real estate in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. In other words you’ll be able to find articles of interest to both buyers and sellers here. People attempting to sell their home as a “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO) will also have a great deal of helpful information available here.
By virtue of being a Blog this entire site is interactive. This means that anyone can leave comments for me and the other readers. For people new to Blogs, this is the very purpose of a Blog. Blogs are meant to be an online journal or chronological record of events or thoughts, but with the added bonus of being interactive.
But there is much more to life than real estate, so you can expect to see a wide variety of articles and posts at www.CallChrisToday.com. Sometimes I ramble and this section, “Chris’s Corner,” is where you’ll find my profound (and not so profound) ramblings about this and that. (primarily that)
So kick off your shoes and stay a while. You’ll need to create a free account if you want to post comments. And I do hope you’ll post comments. It will get mighty lonely around here if I end up talking to myself. And you don’t want me to be lonely now do you? I didn’t think so. See the “register” link up at the top right next to the weather? Click that link and create an account. It takes a few seconds and then you’ll be a certified www.CallChrisToday.com member and you can brag to all your friends!
