P.S. Got a real estate investing blog? Interested in participating in next years battle? If so, leave a comment with your name, blog name, and url.

P.S.S. Also, make sure you check this out … the theme song for the Battle … LOL … “An Ode to a Championship: The Ballad of the ‘Battle of the REI Blogs'” … let me know what you think … hahahaha …


Welcome … to’s first annual …

“Battle of the REI Blogs”

… and I’m your host, Patrick Riddle.

I’ve assembled the A-List, the top 13 real estate investing bloggers to compete to see who’s blog is #1 in your eyes …

Below, you’ll get a chance to check out each participating REI blogger. Each has his or her own custom profile that includes a link to their blog, their 3 main social media links, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube, and a “Tweet About Your Fav Blogger” link.

Sooooo we need you … our readers, our subscribers, our listeners, our watchers … to research each real estate investing blogger below and vote on your favorite, on who you think has the #1 real estate investing blog, on who you think should be crowned “Battle of the REI Blogs 2009” CHAMPION!

Maybe you’re thinking, “Sounds great Patrick … but …
What’s In It for ME?”

Great question … so here are just a few of the things in it for ya …

1) A chance at winning one of the FREE Private Money Blueprint Home Study Systems ($697 VALUE) being given away … the same system that’s generated over $11M in cash from private lenders by its students in only the past six months.

All you have to do to enter is vote on your favorite real estate investing blogger in the comment section (more on that in a minute) …

2) Get social and connect with the “best of the best” real estate investing bloggers.

People are communicating, growing personal relationships, getting to know each other through social media … Twitter, Facebook, YouTube … soooo now is your chance to add the top real estate investing bloggers in the country to your personal social network.

3) Build your foundation of rock solid real estate investing educational resources.

Each blogger participating has his or her own unique style, REI niche, and resources available to help you on your path towards real estate investing riches.

Figure out which blogger/blog appeals to you and your goals and subscribe to ’em.

Now it’s time to learn …


1) Contest Starts October 26th and Ends October 29th 2009 at midnight EST.

2) You MUST be 18 years or older to participate.

3) Meet the bloggers below … click through to their blog and see what you think, connect with ’em if you want through Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, Tweet about ’em if that’s your thing … and decide on your favorite.

4) VOTE! All you gotta do is put the name of your favorite blog/blogger in the comment section.

AND, you may want to add the reason why … why it’s your favorite blog, why he or she is your favorite blogger … because the winning REI blogger gets to hand out FREE Private Money Blueprint Systems to 5 of their voters … AND the runner up gets to give one away too.

Sooooo, by telling “why” … you increase your chance of being picked for one of those killer FREE private money training systems.

5) Only vote once for one blog/blogger and use your real name or biz name (we have a special team in place to ensure that violators are disqualified from the contest … only vote once and use a real name so that if you win, you can get your prize)

And that’s it! Pretty simple, right?

Well, I guess that’s it for “how to play” … now it’s time to …
