Letter: Blogs offer ideas but are no substitute for pros

While I enjoyed reading the article on "Home Blogs" in your Dec. 7 Real Estate section, the article is misleading. I applaud opening the window of imagination that blogs bring to the remodeling market, but the article overlooked significant steps.

Engaging a local designer, architect, or qualified

contractor is a smart move. Doing this helps homeowners not only establish a real solution to their unique needs but also put a real budget to the project before construction.

Blogs offer ideas about possibilities. They do not help with permit drawings, pricing, scheduling, or taking responsibility for workmanship as a licensed professional does.

So readers need to know that while blogs engage the imagination, they do not engage reality.
