is 4 years old today

Really kind of amazing how fast the time has flown by.  My 1st post was not anything memorable, other than I started blogging. I’ve been a journaling since I was in college. However, sharing or writing something publically was a very big push for me. Yet, there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to do it.

The following video was uploaded to YouTube in October 2007. I’ve gone back and watched it several times over the past several years. The content and delivery truly changed my way of thinking about learning, life, and how we share and connect.

When I look at how I’ve evolved personally and professionally in the past four years, I’m truly amazed.

  • Stumbling across the Cromford Report and falling in love with numbers again. Being able to see and share what’s going on statistically has been a big part of this blog.
  • Learning to use my cameras to frame and share my world, especially the beautiful city I live and work in.
  • Finding that I can open up personally, upon occasion, and feel safe, and then learning that my vulnerabilities are not all that scary once they are out there.
  • Jumping into social media with Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, meeting all kinds of new friends, colleagues, and clients
  • Mobilizing my business with use of wireless and broadband, using smartphones, mini-laptop, and now an iPad.

For fun, I went back and picked out a few of my favorite blog posts.  Surprisingly (or not), the pieces I remember most, are the ones where my hearts strings tugged a bit, or I felt a bit uncomfortable sharing how I feel.

With a ton of appreciation, I thank the following people for inspiring me to start my blog, to expand my views, to keep at it, and to focus on what I really am good at and like to do.

What a great time it’s been – to the future and all that it holds!

  1. Hi Dru,

    Congratulations! I’ve been subscribing for around two years now. Your blog is THE go to resource for Scottsdale real estate and community news. Keep up the great work.


  2. Congratulations on 4 years! Great video, I didn’t realize it was 4 years old until the very end. I think technology is important but won’t save us by itself. It takes people who know how to use it and are comfortable doing so to get the best use of it. Thanks for sharing the video, it was awesome.

  3. Happy Blogiversary Dru! Four years is a long time to stick with anything, much less something that can be as difficult and time consuming as consistent blogging can be. Well done, and I’m looking forward to the next four years. And beyond!

  4. Congratulations, Dru! You bring smarts, enthusiasm and a beautiful eye to real estate in Arizona. Cheers to your next four years…
