According to an article published today in The Dallas Morning News, Blogging is becoming more popular with Real Estate Agents.
What I find interesting is that the article states that there are only about 500-1000 agents blogging right now "according to industry estimates."
"According to industry estimates"?? Where did they get this estimate from? ActiveRain alone has over 5000 agent members, not including the members from other branches of the real estate industry. Do all of those agents blog? No, but I'm sure at least a quarter of the people who sign up actually post a blog here and there. Matt or Caleb could probably give a better percentage of who signs up verse who's blogging, but it's definitely got to be a healthy number.
And then you need to take into consideration that AR is fairly new and not all real estate bloggers know about the site yet, as they may be living in a dark hole, or they feel blogging on their own is more efficient than blogging within a networking group.
Do you think the industry estimates are accurate? If not, what do you think is reality?

The comment about people living in a dark hole is not meant to offend anyone. If it offends you, move on to the next blog.
