200,000 and Counting


About 2 years after I first embarked upon a career in real estate, I was checking something that Keller Williams provides its agents: a suggested profile guide with a 'counter' that, when all elements are satisfied, gives you (or in my Type A case) a 100% grade. I was stuck at 97%, so, I challenged myself to figure out what the missing 3% was and the answer was a BLOG:

That day I committed to creating my new blog: www.lovetoliveinmaplewood.com also known as www.lovetoliveinsouthorange.com.

I use this blog to publish local events and happenings, art openings and festivals, sometimes anecdotal stories, educational materials, articles about home decor and architectural stylings and, on occasion, real estate statistics or property hi-lights.

This blog then led me becoming my office's technology coordinator, later the my office's leadership council's technology liaison and now Blogging and Social Media Trainer to our office's agents as well as to any area residents with interest.

So, to my amazement, it gives me great pleasure to report that my blog has just crossed the 200,000 hit counter threshold.


It's hard to believe that that many times my view has been clicked on and read.

Want to learn how you can do the same? Come to one of my free classes or schedule a private session with me.

DEAD or Alive? at SOPAC


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Grateful Dead Tribute Band, Dead on Live, to Play SOPAC June 10 at 8 p.m.

Where: South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC), 1 SOPAC Way, South Orange, NJ, 07079.

(South Orange, May 3, 2016) New York and New Jersey’s premier Grateful Dead cover band, Dead on Live, returns to the South Orange Performing Arts Center June 10 at 8 p.m. Multi-instrumentalist, touring and recording veteran, Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen) has brought a cast of world-class musicians together to present with much “deadication,” their truly unique, note-for-note offering paying tribute to the music of the Grateful Dead. Dead on Live remains true to The Dead’s heart and soul by featuring in every show plenty of Grateful classics spanning the eras.

Dead on Live recreates Phil Lesh’s rootless syncopation’s, the rhythmic juggernaut of Kreutzmann and Hart, the heart and soul of Pigpen, Bob Weir’s and Keith Godchaux’s comping, and the touch and tone of Jerry Garcia. Deadheads will enjoy favorites from the early psychedelic 60’s of Anthem of the Sun, songwriting gems of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty, the iconic “live” era recordings of Europe ‘72 to the odd metered lush productions of From the Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah and Terrapin Station.

Lounge in the Loft, a seating area in the SOPAC loft complete with cash bar and snacks, is an excellent way to relax with friends and mingle with other audience members before the show begins and at intermission. Lounge in the Loft will open at 7 p.m., and the performance begins at 8 p.m. A bar in the lobby will also be available. There is an ATM located in the lobby for convenience.

Dead on Live pays tribute to the Grateful Dead at SOPAC June 10 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-$35 and can be purchased online at SOPACnow.org, or by calling the box office at (973) 313-2787.
