Hypothetical: What If…

by Drew Meyers on 9:30 am August 29, 2017

…this blog went away. What if I stopped writing entirely? Would you pay $5 per month to keep the blog going at its current rate of content (3-5 articles per week)? If not, what would have to change in the way of content to make that worthwhile? More frequent content? More deep analysis of the issues facing our industry? More product reviews? Please leave a comment or email me directly.

I’m Not a Reporter

by Drew Meyers on 5:19 pm August 25, 2017

When I get pitches from PR pros and founders, it’s often under the pretense that I’m a journalist and my job is to write about their company. They clearly haven’t done their research. If they had, they’d understand I’m not a reporter and have no plans to ever become one. I’m just a geek who loves real estate, and have zero desire to add to the endless noise (which is worse in 2017 than it was in 2013 when I wrote the post). Keep in mind, Geek Estate … Read More »

Moving Email Subscriptions to Mailchimp

by Drew Meyers on 1:41 pm July 14, 2016

Over the past few weeks, traffic has been slowly declining and I’ve noticed a slight decrease in comments. I believe I finally realized the issue — emails for new posts stopped going out. One of my (many) email addresses is subscribed, and upon publishing several posts the other day and not seeing an email from Feedburner the next morning like usual — I dug into the issue and realized the last email I received was from the post on June 24th. Since then, I don’t believe anyone has been getting any … Read More »

Pondering the Future

by Drew Meyers on 7:00 am May 4, 2015

Geek Estate was started almost 8 years ago, July of 2007. Wow, that’s a long time ago. The amount of time I’ve personally invested in this is absurd. But I’ve generally loved every second of it. As most of you know, I’ve been working on Horizon for quite some time (7 weeks on the app store, but it’s been a work in progress for over a year). Some of you know I’ve largely been bootstrapping the company with various consulting projects in the real estate industry. Some of … Read More »

A Little House Keeping: The Future of Geek Estate

by Drew Meyers on 3:44 pm May 5, 2014

I’ve been thinking a bit about the future of Geek Estate recently…and I’d like to get some feedback from the readers here. I’ve never spent much time trying to monetize this blog, but the fact of the matter is that it does take time to maintain. I’m just starting the fundraising process for the new app we are building which is a time consuming process, and at some point, I won’t be able to spend as much time as I do without some sort of incentive … Read More »
