And we're back . . . a thank you, a preview and a cat !

Services for Real Estate Pros with garaughty.com

 

 As the post title says... I'm back! After a long absence and a lot of encouragement from AR members who apparently missed me, I've decided to try and make time in my crazy busy life to post here again on some sort of regular basis but first...

 

 marti garaughty thank you

 Before anything else, I wanted to say a BIG thank you for all the awesome birthday wishes you guys sent me yesterday along with the oodles of cats pics that seemed to "infiltrate" the topic! ;-) 

 And in case I missed thanking anyone for their birthday wishes, cute cat pics or anything else... let me say again "THANK YOU"! I really appreciate everyone who reached out to me both on and offline to make my BDay extra special...

 marti garaughty topic preview

  And in case you're curious, here is a brief list of some of the topics I'll be covering starting in the next few days...

 

- Marketing with the F word...

- Why I stripped in public...

- Introducing Mrs. Nipple, the best social media bio ever !

- 2111+ likes for a blank canvas...

- Black is beautiful... and so is white space !

- No comments, no problem... how to be invisible, irrelevant and ignored !

- My 2 philosophies, it's about lions and perfectionism...

- The Blog Header is dead, here's why...

- Why I go out of my way to feature YOU...

- What you can and can't be in 2018...

- Would they miss you? Do you even matter?

- and a ton of other stuff, surprises, etc. that I have swirling around in my head these days...

 

marti garaughty A Day in the Life

 I also thought it might be fun to occasionally share some photos from my daily life, hopefully you'll do the same so we can get to know a bit more about the people behind the blogs.

 And since I received almost as many BDay wishes from cats and I did from humans, I thought I'd share a photo of one of my fav cat friends, his name is Leo. He is as smart and sweet as he is handsome!

 And on that note, I better get back to my crazy busy life. Later...

Oh, how I wish there was a 'love' button, instead of a simple 'like' - it just doesn't seem like it conveys how we really feel to have you back, Marti!

LOVE the post - everything about it but, that Leo is SO handsome and the fact that he's sweet too, is just so heart-warming. I have one like that and worry that I'll never had a smart, sweet cat again! I've been so spoiled by Charlotte!

And, I have to say, I LOVE the paint brushes - I would love to use that photo in a post about painting tips!

Welcome back, Marti! You made my day when I saw your comment! 

Naptime!

Those incendiary titles should provoke some good discussion and engagement.

Love your titles.   You're so creative; no wonder they missed you and your posts!  Attention grabbers, with a bit of off-handed humor!

@  Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI   Thx Patricia... I'm more or less hibernating in a recording studio these days working on my music project and also doing a soundtrack for a short documentary film but will post again when I'm less busy. I should request for Santa Claus to bring me an extra 8 hours in my days this year! ;-)

marti garaughty - How exciting!!! I wouldn't have a clue what do to in a recording studio; however, I'd rather be hibernating in a cabin in the woods writing or taking up painting, than what I'm doing. I can't even imagine what it's like to do what you do. Good luck with the "soundtrack for the short documentary."

I hope Santa Claus brings you something good! As for me, I get skipped every year.
