800 Posts and Still Going Strong. We Take a Look Back

This is the 800th post in Houses For Sale In Spain. That is a lot of posts! Starting before the crisis in Spain when the website was a blogger blog called Valencia Comment (You can see the first post here) the blog has developed over the years keeping people interested in buying property in Spain up to date with developments in the Spanish Property Market and Spain itself. [caption id="attachment_3808" align="aligncenter" width="320"]The First Image Used on the Valencia Comment Blog The First Image Used on the Valencia Comment Blog[/caption] Never afraid to tell the truth, even if unpalatable, the blog has been featured in the Sunday Times, Telegraph, Guardian and even the hated Daily Mail along with international publications like the Herald Tribune, Washington Post and New York Times. We have featured on TV with "A Place in the Sun", the short lived "I Want That House" and "House Hunters International". Of course over the years we have also developed a profile in social media with a hugely active twitter stream, a Facebook page for putting out new property quickly, and a presence on platforms as disparate as Flickr, Soundcloud, Google Plus, Audioboo, LinkedIn, YouTube and Pinterest not to mention the publication of the Spanish Property Magazine for iPad and the main homepage at Valencia Property where we still host all of our properties. New developments are on their way in the next couple of weeks with a portal specifically for non European Union buyers looking to get residency, a new Spanish Property website and numerous other innovations in the Spanish Property area. So no resting on laurels. And guess what? Some of them may fail. Over the years I have done lots of projects which for a myriad of reasons haven't worked and had lots of great ideas which never came to fruition. Hopefully the inspiration and effort will continue long into the future. So thankyou for reading and staying with us and to all of the clients who have passed through since 2006 when the blog started thankyou for your custom.
