UPDATE: The Topix website no longer allows guest editors, which I think is a real shame. This was an online local news source for all different towns and areas.
In doing searches for different towns I've noticed that Topix always seems to come up in the search engines. After reading another real estate agent's blog posting on the subject from the popular real estate portal called Active Rain, I skipped over to the Topix website and joined as an editor for the city of Scottsdale.
You can read the latest Scottsdale news, read some posts on Scottsdale real estate and join in on forums for local or national news items. I'm thinking of joining up as editor of a couple of other towns although they already have editors (there can be multiple editors for a town).
I really like it because for 5-10 minutes in a day I actually learn news about Scottsdale that I might not have read or heard about. In fact, you can find out about one of my interesting news topics about a Scottsdale woman that scammed 2 area homeowners.
Go to Topix.com now and search for whatever town you'd like to get the local news on. It's an easy way to get the daily news, both national and local, without paying for a subscription. You'll also get to read some handpicked articles I've found that I think readers would find educational and interesting.Posted by Judy Orr on
