I couldn’t help but be both flattered and humbled when I heard that I was featured in Samantha Storey’s New York Times piece And The Blog Goes On. I mean I knew that she was writing a piece on real estate blogs but I had no idea when it was being printed and to what extent she would report. And I certainly had no clue that I would be in such company as the powerhouses of the New York City blog world including Lockhart Steele’s Curbed.com, Jonathan Butler’s Brownstoner.com, Noah Rosenblatt’s UrbanDigs.com, and appraiser extraordinaire, Jonathan Miller’s The Matrix.
I feel compelled to thank Ms. Storey for including me in such an excellent piece on blogs, my fellow bloggers, my readers for their thought-provoking commentary, my client, Naomi Novik for her kind words and most importantly, Henry and Jessica Abbott for all of their help in making TrueGotham a reality (good grief this sounds like a cheesey awards speech).
In March of 2006 when TrueGotham was launched, I didn’t even know what a blog was. My friend Henry, author of ESPN’s TrueHoop blog, suggested that I could keep in touch with my clients by blogging. Once he explained what it would entail, I bit, and TrueGotham was born. Henry and Jessica were contributing writers and my administrators for that first year until Henry’s TrueHoop was bought by ESPN. At that point I took over all admin as well as 100% of the writing.
It has been a wild ride and a lot of fun and I look forward to blogging more frequently once again as I did at TrueGotham’s inception.
