A Vote For Me Is A Vote For Leaving Your 9 to 5 Job

Scott CostelloAll, Blog 12 Comments

Even after 3 years of blogging, I am still blown away that people are interested in what I have to say about Real Estate Investing.   It has been a slow build up from my early days posting at blogger.com.  I’d be lucky to get 10 page hits in a week back then,  now I’m getting over 2,000!

I started learning about Real Estate Investing by reading pretty much every post at REIClub.com’s forums.  I spent 4 hours everyday over there.    So Yesterday when I got an email from the REIClub content manager asking if I’d like to participate in an REI Blog Contest I about fell off my chair.  Color me Honored!

This is a pretty cool contest and has some nice rewards for the winner of each category.  I’m entered in the “Up and Coming REI Blog” section.  The winner will receive a $250 Apple or Amazon gift card, plus 10 ReiClub Expert Interview Sets to give away to my blog readers.  I always have fun giving things away to my readers!

The contest starts this coming Monday, June 13th and runs through Jun 19th.    My competition is fierce and I’d have to say I’m the least experienced investor in the group.  I’d have a tough time picking my favorite, but remember…A vote for me is a vote for getting ride of your 9 to 5 job.

Here is my competition

Here is where you can vote…

  1. Congrats on making the list, Scott! It’s nice to see a lot of our fellow bloggers in the contest. I’ve enjoyed following in your REI adventures over the years. Good luck! 🙂 

    p.s. Still glad you kept the name, I like it!! 

    1. Hi Rachel,

      Some day soon I’m hoping to get off the “Up and Comers” lists and get into the full blown “Investor” list.  Best of luck to you and your blog, your’s should be one of the favorites to win!

      There were a few reasons I decided to keep my blog name, one of which is I like it as well. 🙂

      1. I still may not like the psychology of the name, but I can think of a few reasons why you’d still keep it 😉  Congrats Scotty!  Don’t you have a deal under contract right now?

  2. Hey Scott, Congrats on beating me out! Your blog is awesome and has a tremendous amount of information. I am struggling to have more time to create such wonderful content myself, so I might as well get the domain name, StrugglingBlogger.com. lol Congrats on making it to the top, it’s clear that you deserve it! Warm Regards..

    1. Thanks so much Althea, to be honest I wasn’t sure I would get any votes. All the other blogs seem to always be so well organized and have such great content. I just write about what I’ve been doing.

      Hmmmm…I’ll have to go look into StrugglingBlogger and StrugglingSinceDealOne 🙂

      Thanks again

  3. I told you, it should be StrugglingBlogger(dotcom). I did not realize it would automatically turn that into a hyperlink 🙂 Once again, congrats!
