I started the Malibu Real Estate blog about 5 years ago with the idea of just trying to get some interesting news out there about our unique market. I look back on my very first post and remember just how difficult it was trying to come up with something to say that people would find interesting. My first paragraph was small but it took forever to write as I finger poked the keys on my MacBook.
I’m still finger poking but at a much higher rate with almost 5 years of blogging under my belt. I recently passed the 500,000 page view mark and will be throwing a serious party when I hit 1,000,000 in about 4 more years.
The site was built on WordPress and I’ll be the first to admit that the design is far from professional. The word “clunky” comes to mind but I was proud of the fact that I learned how to edit some html, CSS, and install all sorts of widgets that made it a functional place to deliver real estate related content.
After 500,000 page views I decided it was time to hand the site over to some WordPress developers and let them have a crack at taking the blog to the next level. It’s been a six month process with over 19 revisions to the website design that will host the new site in less than a week.
