Fireworks and Unicorns- Teresa & Ines are on board!!!

fireworks.jpgToday is a magical day in Agent Genius land… imagine fireworks, fluffy puppies, unicorns and a massive drumroll as I get to the point… Teresa Boardman and Ines Hegedus-Garcia will be contributing to Agent Genius!!!!! I am so excited- y’all have no idea! These ladies represent some of the brightest talent in the blogiverse and I’m confident you already know them (everyone knows Ines & Teresa!). In case you were born yesterday, I’ll tell you a bit about them:

Teresa Boardman of St. Paul Real Estate BlogTeresa Boardman is like a breakfast burrito (which Mariana and I can agree is like the best food ever)- she’s got about 7 blog projects and endlessly innovative business practices all wrapped inside a warm tortilla. She hails from the corporate world which gives her the guts to write one of my favorite blogs, the Real Weenie and you are probably already subscribed to her uber famous St. Paul Real Estate Blog that has laid the smack down in her local blog scene (can you name another Minnesota blogger? I didn’t think so). She’s even braved doing a Bubble Gum Interview! What I love about Teresa is that she is always lady-like but never apologizes just for the sake of apologizing. Give Teresa a hand as she lets her hair down and shows her inner genius!

Ines Hegedus-Garcia of Miamism.comInes Hegedus-Garcia is like an ice cream sundae because she seems to make everyone happy, even in the hot Miami winters! Ines has a rich background in architecture and extends herself to several philanthropic causes. Ines’ blog, Miamism was big before I ever even knew what a blog was, so I can’t speak to her growth, but I can say that her blog has evolved into a very polished sexy work of art! Ines is always upbeat, funny and sweet- she’s like the homecoming queen of blogging. Give Ines a hand as she joins the group and makes you smile as she brings her sunny Miami genius!

Both ladies are awesome. I’m proud to call them both my friends and because I’m nice, I’ll share them with you readers. You can welcome them with candy, mojitos, facebook pokes, or most importantly your warm words of welcome in the comments. WELCOME LADIES!!!!

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    Holly Cow! What a welcome!! Lani you are one funny woman.
    And to be announced with Teresa…..what else can I say? I really look forward to being part of this amazing group of bloggers, of brains and power. AG ROCKS!
    (….and I hope I can live up to the “ice cream sundae” expectation)

    I think it’s about time to play six degrees of Teresa Boardman. So take Kevin Boer, of 3 Oceans Real Estate for instance.

    Kevin also blogs on the Domus Consulting blog with Pat Kitano, who guest blogs on the Inman blog with myself, and I occasionally blog on Teresa’s Real Weenie Blog. 3 degrees. Active Rain & Realtown shouldn’t count. Anyone else want to play?

    I can connect Jay Thompson to Teresa in three, can anyone else?

    I know Todd. Does that count? Can I be less than 6 Degrees from ALL RE Bloggers now?

    After this write up, I feel like I need to write something. I can connect myself to Todd Carpenter too. I met him in person, and spent several hours with him in San Fransisco. I love it when he write on the weenie. 🙂 . . . Hi Ines. 🙂 . . anyone know what 5 + 9 is?

    Todd – go back to the Yankee Blog swap and your can connect T and I in one step.

    Welcome ladies! Two *excellent* additions!

    Jennifer Kirby. (can you name another Minnesota blogger?)

    Jay, you don’t count, you know everyone! You’re like the rolodex of blogging.

    wow, Ines, Teresa, I cannot say welcome enough.

    agentgenius is growing, and almost at full blog. Someday we’ll all look back only to realize our impact on the biz. Realtors appreciate you guys and your straight talk, honesty, and your knowledge. Thanks to all of ag for being willing to add to the voice, offset the lame drumbeats, and to counter ‘bloggerhia’. All of you rock.

    Um … Tobey thought there was a one-beagle-per-blog limit. What the hell is this? 🙂
