I tried that, multiple sites, & I became overwhelmed. Especially when I was trying not to duplicate content in order to get good SEO. I eventually abandoned all except AR.

Someone mentioned Google My Business & even that really didn't get good SEO.

How much duplication do you want to have?

FB is not the place to post an intelligent article.

AR only. Being retired does not mean being out of work! Watch the grandkids and that is a full time plus job without pay!

Most of the platforms I used to blog on when doing market reports are no longer around or no longer doing blogs.  RealtyTimes was one of them.

Now, I blog on my website as the primary and AR as a secondary... but most of my blogging now is on another of my sites that isn't real estate related, but STR related instead, so it doesn't make sense to post here.

When I do have videos, I post them to Vimeo only.  I used to post to both youtube and Vimeo, but out of respect for my visitor's privacy I've been moving away from YouTube and anything Google related for my sites (yes, that means no google analytics either, though I do have the search console as that doesn't require embedding tracking codes onto my site).

I think for my real estate site's home tour videos, they are now all on Vimeo.  For my STR site, I only have one video and it's a commercial that was filmed at one of my properties and I link to the production company's video on YouTube, since I don't own the copyright to it.

Images are on my site and hosted there.  The exception being anything that I upload strictly for AR, which lives in my file manager here.

I am active on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. I'm also on LinkedIn but am not very active on that site. Most of my posts are photographs or recipes.

AR is the root of my social media tree.

Many posts on other platforms start with a blog post on AR to share on FB, LI, Twitter, etc.

I'm not sure you can call what I do "blogging".

The only place I really spend any significant time putting my digital pen to digital paper is here on AR. 

I do spend some time on FaceBloof, and while I do have Splitter, Kinked-in and Pinkterest accounts, I don't use them... at all.  And I spend far less time here on AR, as several people have mentioned.

But when I am digitally present, y'all can find me here, toodling around.

I post on AR initially but also my website through my brokerage.  I then put links on FB, IG, and Twitter.  My video content goes to YouTube and is then posted on the aforementioned sites.  Keeps me in front of my audience.

I have my own blog on my IDX website - it's wordpress. (  I try to blog once in a while on the company site - Hawai'i Life.  I'll upload pictures on Instagram and they populate to FB, but I hate FB so try to avoid it.  I have totally given up on LinkedIn and Twitter both. 

It seems all these platforms start out great with the members in mind, and they all devolve into advertising platforms with the advertisers being the primary driver of content.  Then they want you to pay for the privilege of not having ads in your face.

I don’t blog on AR, with the exception of a couple of blogs through the years. I figured it was counter productive to build someone else’s juice rather than use that on my own site. I do not blog or post these days.
