Active Rain has increased its visibility and readership --- and also provides a wonderful network of real estate professionals (realtors, stagers, lenders, builders, appraisers, etc).

Ditto comments about WordPress...and don't forget Trulia and Zillow which have a tremendous following as well.

If you're going to be city or area specific, try Examiner where you can blog on various topics.  Here's the link where you can start

You can also try the local print publications and see if they will take you on as a blogger.

Have fun!

There are several easy & free solutions for accessible blogging!


Easily one of the most popular around the internet is WordPress, which can either be hosted on their servers (less flexible, but totally free) or on your own domain (which is much more malleable but also requires an inexpensive hosting plan). Here's a link to a presentation a few of us at Zillow gave on blogging with WordPress


Also, check out Posterous, Blogger, and ActiveRain--along with many others. Hope this helped and good luck blogging!

You may want to do a Google search, but there are many out there that are available for free.  Your local association of realtors may even offer this, I know mine does, and I use it frequently.  Also always a good idea to start up a Twitter account.  May also try ActiveRain.  But yeah, plenty out there.

Best of luck to you.
