marti garaughty, The Art of Marketing YOU

 

Quick Update: The tech problem in groups seems to have finally been resolved. Thx AR and to everyone who sent me feedback about this, much appreciated!

 

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!

marti garaughty - You are wise! You recognized quickly things weren't going to change; yet you stayed with it because of the membership and the connections you made over the years. You are the most reliable person who is tech savvy and supportive. For that and many other reasons, I'm thankful you continue to support those of us who keep hoping for something that just doesn't happen. 

I wish you continued happiness, good health, and prosperity. Your creative self is truly authentic and appreciated.

Happy to meet you, marti garaughty.  Agree the difficulty reaching AR and as of late, I do not try any longer...believe no one will respond.  That part is frustrating and a little sad; however, the wonderful part is all the members I have met.  Good luck on the work on your condo..It is true that at times we all find ourselves sort of 'snowed under.'

marti garaughty - 5+ years is a long time. Do you think they are giving us a HINT? Something is off. It's almost as if we are self-managing.  But then again, who are the people behind the curtains handing out features? Are they other bloggers who won't or can't identify themselves?

It is such a mystery! But I thank God for people like you!!! You make me a believer. 

Thanks, Marti!

marti garaughty - 5+ years to not be invested is a long time. It makes me appreciate you even more. I thank God you're still here. Thank you for the feature yesterday. Sometimes I wonder, are we self-managing? Are other AR bloggers giving us features and we don't know who they are? It's such a mystery!

Thank you for being there for me and many others too. 

With sincere appreciation.

Patricia

@  Patricia Feager  I know what you mean... I'm just happy to still be here for the awesome people and connections we make with one another. As for AR, I've given up on expecting their tech issues to ever be resolved. I might be wrong but I'm not holding my breath! ;-)
