Planning How to Best Run LovingStPete

Published on 03/17/22: Hi LovingStPete Family! Colt (son) and I are busy working on our LovingStPete “business plan”. I’d love if you can comment or DM me with feedback on the below.


My Instagram and Facebook posts have always been too long by today’s standards. With this in mind, I’m adding a blog on my website for those who wish to see all the details. I’ll post a brief summary on Instagram (imagine that!) with a link to the full blog post in my bio or similar.


I’ll include a longer summary with a link to the blog post. This way you can have as many or as few details as you want (coming soon).
Post content: We love all things ‘nature’ around Tampa Bay, so I’ll likely start posting a few of the nature and wildlife pictures that we take while out. Maybe even general sights and sounds around the area, mixed in with our adventure posts. We’re blessed to live in area with great people, wildlife, scenery and much more.


I’m going to start interacting on ol’ Instagram more. I’ll start following, commenting, sharing your local content on stories, etc. You’ll help me show off our incredible area! Everyone says this engagement is a “must”, but I haven’t done it much these first 15 months.


Torn on these. Glad to do them more often again, though started feeling they might seem spammy. If you have thoughts on it, just let me know.

What else? Give me some tips to improve LovingStPete and represent the Tampa Bay area the best we can! I’ve got thick skin! I mean you might make Colt cry, but he gets up quick. 😉 (joking) #SchoolOfHardKnocks

Fourth 📸 is one of Amy’s favorites, illustrating why she endorses the frequent father-son adventures. 😂

I’m a local St Petersburg Area Realtor, with over 25K people following my LovingStPete Guide on Social Media! You’ll receive up to $10K at closing when you use my LovingStPete Team to buy or sell a property! My past includes developing a vacation rental advertising business that I ran for more than a decade, then sold to HomeAway/VRBO. I’d love to help you buy or sell a property, simply contact me.

Written by : St Petersburg Realtor, Mike Braswell

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
