OK... I Want a Show of Hands!  Who Here Has Spoken with Ellen Caruso??

Today was a De-staging day for me and that means taking down, packing raise your handsup, and climbing stairs (lots of them).   I was physically and mentally zonked by the time I got home.

So what a treat it was when my phone rang and there on the other end of the line....oops,  no land line anymore...on the other end of the cellular digital world was Ellen Caruso!  You know...Ellen... "The Whales's Tales".  She was just calling to say “hello.”  

Some of you have probably already received your “Ellen” call!  Let’s see a show of hands?!  I thought so, because Ellen makes it a point of calling and getting to know people here at ActiveRain.  

Why? You say... you have email and texting, LinkedIn and Facebook, and of course our blogs here at ActiveRain?  Why call??

Well, if Ellen had texted me I would never had known that she used to design the packaging  for Avon products.

If she had LinkedIn me I would have no idea that she is an A-type multi-tasking mother of 3 that can prepare dinner and set the table while on the phone.

If we had Facebooked each other I would have no idea that that lady is a ball of energy!  

Here's the phone!The whole point of this social media stuff is “social”!  Yes, I’ve spoken to some of my fellow Rainers but primarily when I had a reason to call.  Rarely just to introduce myself and say “hello.”  

So I’m taking a cue from Ellen and some others here and will try to do a better job of picking up the phone and saying “hello”

to some of my ActiveRain friends here.


What about you??


 

Say “Hello” to Ellen!

Jennifer- I thought she might!

Tom- I think we've all gotten so used to emailing or texting that we forget to pick up the phone. 

Debb- I agree!  She's outgoing and full of energy.  You can't help but feel revived when you talk to her. 

Tammy- not a phone person, huh!  That's ok, not everyone is.

I'm not really a phone person myself but my marketing guru used to call one ActiveRain person every day. He did that from late 2009 to when he left ActiveRain in mid-January.

Kathy~ As you know, I'm trying to CLEAN OUT my bookmarked posts, however I found myself hitting the bookmark button on this post to remine myself to pick up the phone!  Now I need to go and delete something to keep balance in my universe!  LOL!

Hold me accountable Kathy.  I haven't called.  I have a head cold that includes a terrific cough and I've lost my voice!  UGH!  I'm going to call her this week.  I promise (but keep after me!)
