Wearing down - speedblogging fatigue

I set out to write on every site I control in less than an hour. Now I could have done 140 characters and a link and been done with it, but that's for twitter. I wanted to actually write something on each site.

I'm no longer in the mortgage business, so this site is really not worth much except for links to other sites. Want one? Stop sending me SEO consulting emails and ask for a link like a professional.

I have quite a few mortgage related sites though, anyone want to buy the whole network? now there's a thought to pursue.

Keep moving through the speedblog links to First Financial Trust Mortgage, Portage's #1 mortgage lender.

Finance market overhaul plan's positives
from ActiveRain Mortgage Group by Esko Kiuru - Las Vegas NV Mortgage Consultant (Sinifox Financial)
The recent proposal from the Treasury Secretary to revise how Wall Street operates and is regulated has been largely greeted with well-aimed criticism, and even some yawns because it seems to be just good old-fashioned politics. To many it goes way too easy on the finance industry at a time when it should give it more chaos-avoiding, meaningful direction. There are, though, a couple of proposals that merit a further look.

Zillow Mortgage Marketplace & Lending Tree -- Online Lead Generators - What does it all mean?
from ActiveRain Mortgage Group by Jeff Belonger -- The FHA -- New Jersey mortgage -- FHA mortgages (Infinity Home Mortgage Company, Inc)

LEAD GENERATORS -- Definition from -- The process of collecting contact information and extracting potential sales leads. The process of finding people (consumer or business) with a qualified interest in a certain product or service.
Jeff Belonger's definition of lead generators. Risky, sometimes false hope, misleading, low ball rates and or closing costs, bait & switch.

Why do Lenders stop Wholesale lending?
from ActiveRain Mortgage Group by DUCHAI NGUYENTAN (BANK OF AMERICA)
Does this mean Lenders don't trust independent mortgage brokers/loan officers that they have no control over?
