I Thought Of Margaret Rome

While I Was Taking My Shower This Morning

 

Pondering ActiveRain 010719 

 

Nothing salacious mind you. 

It happens. 

It happens quite frequently too. 

And not only with Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland either. 

Absolutely nothing creepy about it. Really. 

 

You see ActiveRain keeps me aware. 

Of members. Of the happenings in their area, Their thoughts on business. 

I learn about their market with valuable statistics, neighborhood trends and insights beyond the numbers.   

 

I have been a member of this forum since March, 2010 but not particularly active in the beginning.  Lapses happen sometimes.  

As time passed, I commented on posts.

I learned. Blogging. Business Practices. Lots more too. 

Publishing posts brought inquiries. People found me through my writing and of a subject where my knowledge could be expressed in a different manner and to a new group of people.  I learned even more about my market.   That learning continued and grew due to the people I 'see' here on a regular and not so regular basis.  Maybe I was learning  by osmosis.  

 

OK back to Margaret because I know you think you know what may happen.

But wait! 

You see Margaret wrote a post about ideas that occurred in the shower.  She had a plan(she seems to have a plan for everything, right?) about capturing those ideas in writing(published on October 26, 2018).

Although I haven't implemented this particular idea yet, I was reminded of it again while I was in the shower. 

Ideas.  Concepts.  Answers.   A strategy. Rinse Repeat.   Each can happen when you participate.   

 I salute ActiveRain as it has benefitted me through education, camaraderie and humor.  Things that are not so common in some social media forums are more prevalent here.  Far from perfect, it's like that  "comfortable easy chair" in the living room.   

It could  happen to you.   Showering and pondering.   Now keep it clean.  

 

This is an entry for the January ActiveRain challenge sponsored by Margaret Rome "Giving Kudos".  This post is rated "G" for Good Times(when you participate as an AR member).  And as a former member of this forum might say "it's with a twist".

Michael Jacobs - I really enjoy your humorous side coupled with interesting topics to ponder. 

As for Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - she always writes material that is clean and fresh. I love this statement the most: 

"Ideas.  Concepts.  Answers.   A strategy. Rinse Repeat.  Each can happen when you participate."

Michael Jacobs Can you hear me smiling. Read this before taking a shower and love your entry. My head does not stop...other than at the gym. So I made it easy to jot down thoughts when in my private boardroom.

Hi Michael- I do some of my best thinking while I'm in the shower!  And, I do remember Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland blog on this topic. It must be the hot/warm water running over our heads!  You know, they used to use something similar in asylums!?!

Oh, I think of Margaret often - but, I can't say that I've ever thought of her in the shower, Michael! LOL 

I do remember her post and like you, love everything she writes.

It happens to me all the time.

Not thinking of Margaret in the shower, but thinking of AR members because I see or hear something that I relate to them. All. The. Time.

Now I need to somehow get on with my day without the vision of you and Margaret in the shower.

Hahaha - I remember Margaret's post about this, so there was not a dirty thought in my mind. I'm not sure, but I don't think I've thought about an AR member while showering - yet.

Good morning Michael Jacobs ,

I had to chuckle with the title of your post and the post of course made me smile. Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland is someone we all we respect although I've never thought of her in the shower! LOL! I actually do my pondering early in the morning or late at night.

As long as Margaret doesn't mind you thinking about her while you shower, then all is right in your/her world. Nice touch at the end mentioning RM, as I think about him quite a bit as well (not in the shower, mind you) and miss his contributions here Michael!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! -- Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland seemed to enjoy the post, so everything appears copacetic and as far as RM is concerned I think he might say he's far from copacetic.  I miss his presence here too.
