Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?

  My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part VII)

Who is the most awesome person today?

It's that time of the week again folks!

As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.

ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...

For this week's post, that person is ActiveRain's very own:

Kristin Johnston

 

Kristin Johnston - Animals (and people too!) love her!

Kristin is not only a great Realtor, she's a huge animal's rights activist. And, as evidenced from the picture above, our furry friends love her! Kristin puts her money where her mouth is too, contributing a portion of the proceeds from her transactions to animal shelters in her client's name.

Kristin should make extra money on all her deals simply because she can pronounce the names of the Wisconsin cities she serves. Among them are Waukesha, Trempealeau and Koshkonong. Say any one of theose 10 times fast!

As a little girl Kristin's love for animals started to take shape when she refused to eat foods that contained ingredients that came from animals...

Kristin Johnston - Animals (and people too!) love her!

Kristin is a prolific blogger, and she's a wealth of knowledge  concerning not only Real Estate, but also helpful household and eco-friendly tips. You can see those on her frequent "Did You Know...?" blog posts. Kristin is the Martha Stewart of ActiveRain... but without the mean!!!

If you aren't already subscribed to Kristin's blog you need to go and do that right now. We'll wait. (insert Jeopardy theme here as we wait for you to return.)

Kristin works, lives and plays in the Oconomowoc, WI area. And when I go visit my sister in Madison, I can't wait to meet her in person! We email back and forth all the time and I consider her my friend.

And, because she's my friend, Kristin gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!

Kristin Johnston - The Most Awesome Person of the Week!

Here's to you Kritsin Johnston, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!

Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!

Yes, you!

Gay - That's a great description for Kristin because lovely she is.

Craig - I don't subscribe to Kristin's Blog, but you paint a wonderful picture of her....sweater and all!  Anyone who makes an effort to give back to their community gets a big thumbs up from me.  I'm an animal lover, too.  So, I will be checking out Kristin's blog thanks to your suggestion.

Craig, I love this series.  I didn't know Kristin.  Thanks for introducing her.  I'm running over to subscribe to her blogs right now.  My husband is from Milwaukee so I guess I'm a little bit Wisconsin myself.

Good feature Craig.  Kristin is a neat lady, but I am going to disagree with the comments about how good she looks in the sweater.  She completely chose the wrong color lipstick!  What an insult to you and your sweater!

Pat - Yeah. I've been meaning to talk to Kristin about that! But, because I love and respect her and because she's my friend, I let it slide....this time!

Nick - Kristin's a keeper! Definitely worth subscribing to AND knowing. Now about that sweater comment. You know I can "fix" that. But, for comedic purposes, I choose to leave it unfulfilled!

So, what you are really saying is,... you will definitely be in Chicago in October to see mini Martha, Me, Alan,... and the list goes on,... and the list goes on,... (oops, I think that is supposed to be the beat) :)D  Right?

Laura - I would love to meet you guys! I have not ruled out the windy city as a possibility this October. You'll have to make a convincing case though! Some of those west coast RainCamps are very intriguing!

Okay, but I'll have to make those offers by e-mail!  ;-)  Wait!  What if I can talk Amy into coming for sure, and Tish & Cinnamon?  Then would you come up here?
