I have been following Duke Long and his blog for a few years now. I was Googling Commercial Real Estate sites and found a list of the top 25 social media people in the industry.
I looked up and down the list and searched it for my name. I found my co-partner on my CREPIG site and many of my site members, but not my name.
I was disappointed and made a mental note to make sure that this Duke guy recognized me and put me on the list. Well the list was done so I put myself on it in the comments section.
Duke wrote back saying essentially cool man... No prob. I kept a keen eye on his lists since then and I have rarely made any of them.
