marti garaughty, The Art of Marketing YOU

hi everyone...

 yeah it's been awhile since my last post. Even though I've been maintaining and moderating The Art of Marketing YOU group, the past few years have been crazy busy with new adventures and projects that didn't leave me much time for anything else, also...

 I want to thank everyone (in no particular order) who has kept this group alive with some truly awesome content including Barbara Todaro , Debe Maxwell, CRS ,  Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland , Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers , Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS , Joan Cox , Patricia Feager , Jim Paulson , Hannah Williams , Victoria Ray Henderson Marshall Henderson and so many others!

 Your on topic, insightful posts make our group worth reading even when I'm AWOL. ;-)

 

marti garaughty, The Art of Marketing YOU

 Before I start posting again, I had a quick question. Is anyone else having problems contacting ActiveRain or is it just me?

 In the past few months I've contacted AR throught their contact form, by phone and this week through one of their blog posts and also on their Facebook page but received no reply.

 Today I noticed that ActiveRain's official blog hasn't been updated since December 15, 2016, almost a year ago so...

 Now I'm wondering if anyone is actually still handling questions from members? Any feedback would be appreciated!

 Update: Thx to your quick and awesome help, both Noel and Robert from ActiveRain have already contacted me about the tech issue in groups, a fix is in the works! ;-)

 And to answer the question I've been asked by so many AR members about if I'll be coming back or posting again, the answer is probably YES! I've been crazy busy with...

- renovating my condo

- spending more time than expected on a new music project

- and of course painting

 But I've been jotting down ideas for some stuff I'd like to talk about and share so as soon as I have time to post on a regular basis, I do intend to be more active on AR again. Later...

marti garaughty - i love the soundtrack. It would be great to have playing softly while meditating.  I am happy to read that AR reached out to you and the issues with groups is being worked on. 

Thank you for all that you do with this group and for the AR community.

marti garaughty - I read your comment to Kathleen Daniels and wanted to say, there are many days when I'm thinking, "I'm giving up on them..." And then I think to myself, thank goodness for people who I have connected with over the years who have stayed on this journey with me. It is obvious to me, the system on AR is broken. But I am thankful for the membership, people like yourself who makes me get up, sit up straight and write a blog post. And it makes me happy to hear from members like yourself and know that we are all doing the best we can. We are like cyber bodies, floating in space without leadership, awesome technology, and answers to our questions. And then, someone out there, some great member reaches out to us, someone who cares to stay connected because connections is what makes us whole and happy too. Best wishes to you on President's Day. I hope you are happy. Marti, never ever stop breathing!
