 We'll also have lots of new stuff available so stay tuned and watch my blog for more news & updates soon. Until then, here's some May 2009 calendar/wallpapers ready to download. Later...

A million blind squirrels  by Seth Godin

 My dad likes to say, "even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then." And it's true. You shouldn't pick your strategy by modeling someone else's success. The success might have been strategic and planned, but it's just as likely to be a matter of blind luck.  read...

Marti, Thank you so much for your generosity, creativity, and most of all your willingness to share! I am using the Keller Williams background, header and divider you designed and I love it.  I am not a creative person so I truly appreciate your hard work and long hours to provide zero-talented ones like myself an array of options to "pretty-up" our blogs.  You're the best!!

Marti,

"The Facebook profile a gold mine for marketers" article is an eye opener. Most of us don't think about that when we fill out profiles. Not only in Facebook, but at ActiveRain and the rest. Good to know.

mARTi, More beautiful eye candy.  I have an idea for you....do a graphic of a rock for AR rocks. Can't wait to see your version of a rock.

 Ha, look who's telling the master what to do.

Thank you for sharing your work with us. I haven't been on active rain long so I haven't been able to fully utilize your gifts to us, but from what I have seen I will be even more appreciative as time goes on! Thank you again.

Marti, We could never do without you.  I was out of the rain for several days and when that happens, it's your posts that "save" me from missing some great posts!   You've got a line up I haven't seen and I'm sure interested to read the article about Anthony Robbins.  Thank you!!

marti, what a fantastic idea to have all the graphs you have created for Activerain members in one place. I clicked over and found it to still be underconstruction. Very cool.
