June 24, 2007...

 hi everyone. As the marketing group approaches the 2000 member mark, I'd like to thank all of you for your great posts, comments and participation. I'm constantly impressed by the high quality of content being posted and the diversity of feedback, opinions and information sharing that goes on here on Active Rain.

  That being said, I'd like to point out a few blogs that really caught my eye recently. Some are from well established members as well as great stuff from some of the newer faces here on AR.

 The marketing group and Active Rain are becoming more like Google and the web in general. As more and more info gets posted, it becomes more difficult to read everything, let alone find the quality, on topic gems. So in case you missed them, here are just a few of the outstanding posts from the past few weeks...

Marti....  I am just now catching up on some of the blogs. This was great because I need to step up my marketing approach and you listed some great blogs. I am sorry that this didn't get much attention that it fell through the cracks. Maybe flagging it will help some. And lastly, thanks for that mention. I appreciate that.

Bobby... hi to you as well. There were a lot of great marketing posts to choose from and the next compilation will be just as tough to narrow down but...

Marti: Thanks for spotlighting my post. And thanks for letting me be a part of this Group on AR. I have to admit, "The Art Of Marketing You" is my favorite group on AR. i joined quite a few groups when I first signed up but I always find myself spending the most time here!

Hi Marti...

It really is nice that you have returned to all of this.

It's been a while since I posted anything in this group. I wasn't posting in here because you were M.I.A.

Glad you're back and hope you'll stick around :)

TLW...ROAR!
