Debbie Gartner is the ActiveRain person I would love to meet

 

I think Debbie is a blogging genius and her blogs are where I go if I have a technical questions.  The great thing about Debbie is that she can relate some very complicated information in a clear, concise way that is easily understandable.  That means she speaks non-techie.

 

 

Debbie Gartner, the Flooring Girl

 

 

I enjoy reading her posts about flooring because she knows it all.  She has written blogs that explain different floor surfaces in a way that I could easily grasp and relate to my clients.  And even though she lives in New York state, I would feel no hesitation in calling her and asking her opinion about a particular flooring and not just because she is the “Flooring Girl.

 

I have spoken to her because I knew she would have the answer to a technical or flooring questions I had.  I asked her a question in one of her blogs and would you believe it? She actually called me to answer my question.  I was floored (no pun intended) and very honored that she would take the time to call a lowly newbie like me.  She’s funny, down to earth and its fun to speak to her.

 

 

She is definitely one of my hero's on ActiveRain.  I wrote a post about her in 2012  Debbie Gartner An ActiveRain Superwoman.

OMG Evelyn, I just came across this, and I'm so honored.  It was a crazy day yesterday and I didn't get home until midnight.  Anyway, thank you so much, and I would so love to meet you, too.

Awww, what a wonderful blog about Debbie.  When I first joined ActiveRain, Debbie suggested that we meet, which we did.  She provided a ton of suggestions about getting started on AR, which was really awesome for this newbie.  I totally agree - she's a great person to meet!

Hi Evelyn~ I've been enjoying Debbie for several years. I talked to her on the phone a few times, but it's been a while. I think I need to pick up the phone!
