Joe Ferrara

Joe Ferra and Rudy Bachraty at Real Living HER WorthingtonRest in Peace Joe Ferrara.   Do you remember BlogTour USA? Columbus was a stop.

Joe Ferrara was one of the two NYC bloggers who visited Columbus in 2007.   The stop was in Worthington.   Worthington – The bus stopped here. Columbus real estate bloggers and non real estate bloggers met Joe Ferrara and Rudy Bachraty  at an event at Real Living HER  Worthington on July , 2007.  The “bus” was an RV that Joe and Rudy drove cross country.

It all started with the Sellsius Real Estate Blog.  I think I found their site first…  which helped them to find my little blog about the Best in Columbus (there is a site that started in 2005 which is the original “Columbus Best Blog.”)  I met Joe and Rudy online in 2006.   They played on the original “Columbus Best Blog”, I played on the Sellsius Real Estate blog.

I met the Sellsius guys in person in 2007.  If you came to a picnic at Real Living HER Worthington  in July 2007  you met Joe!   Joe and Rudy gave a presentation on blogging and social media.  They were ahead of their time. I know Alvin from ‘The 270′  was at the BlogTour USA event, a Columbus food blogger’ FinerRepasts.com ‘  came with Alvin (@WylieMac on Twitter.)  Tina of  the Green Buckeye Blog was at the bus stop to meet Joe and Rudy and other Central Ohioans who were blogging or interested in blogging.  Jonathan who writes a very technical business blog was there.   A half dozen established Central Ohio real estate bloggers were there,  Joe, Elaine, Toby, Eric and Saundra were at the Worthington Ohio event in 2007.

Should we run into one another in real life and it looks like I’ve been crying. I have.  Or if I burst into tears over something like a stupid real estate tour I have been trying to remove from Zillow for over a week… it’s really not really about the tour.  Frustrations…  I would give anything to have that real estate tour off of Zillow… and every place else it just does not belong.  It is not even that a great online friend died.  I will miss Joe online  but my father died last week.  My blog is not about me, my family, or my dog.  ColumbusBestBlog.com is about life in Columbus.  I mean no disrespect to my father by not writing about his passing or his life.

Rest in Peace, Joe Ferrara, Sandy Sterbenz, Henry L. McCabe.
