Although I have been a member of Spark People for many years (joined in 2007), I have become less of a visibly vocal presence than when I first joined. But I have remained faithful to checking in daily and one of the things I have enjoyed most has been reading your blogs. Thanks for the humor and some pretty cool reminders! 37 days ago
I tried to send you a fb request but the usual “Send friend request” didn’t show up. I'm listed under Carol-Buraski Harris. Would appreciate a friend invite in case you have better luck with it than I did. 39 days ago
I did send a friend request on Facebook. Shoapie AKA Dona DeJarlais on Facebook. Would love to keep up with you. I will definitely miss your blogs. So often they were the highlight on SP! 39 days ago
CD15730194 thanks for all you did for SP. Maybe consider joining MyFitnessPal or Fatsecret. A lot are transitioning over there. You can blog at MyFitnessPal. Sign up under your spark name and we'll be able to find you then All the best. Maybe see you on the other sites- I'm on both right now. MyFitnessPal is better imo.
I'm really going to miss your blogs. I always enjoyed your truth, encouragement, and family stories. I truly hope Spark will make a way to continue to include you. If not, I wish you blessings and good health for many years to come. 40 days ago
Oh Lynda, I do hope we can connect elsewhere online as I truly love reading your blogs! They are often a source of joy and laughter, or sometimes a cause to stop & think, but 99.99% of the time they are the most wonderful read of my day! I really do hope you find a place we can all go to keep reading your blogs!!!
As to the matter of you putting your personal contact info into a blog... one that is public... IF concerns mentioned here by others now have you concerned, here's a few things to keep in mind:
1. You can choose to delete this blog at any time.
2. You can make changes (edit) to this blog (might be a time limit on that).
3. In this day & age, it's very likely that info is already out there in the vast worldwide web of the internet (whether you know it or not) & it's not possible to erase all mentions of it.
4. It is always a good idea to be aware, be cautious, be discreet, when discussing personal info online; but with that BE PREPARED with good methods of catching those wanting to do harm prior to damage being done. Protection programs on our devices. Security measures around our homes. Awareness of surroundings when we're out & about daily. All things I'm sure you are already doing, or your sons have seen to so you are already very protected.
Meanwhile... I hope you are able to stay in touch with all the SparkFriends you want to & are gathering their contact info already & for the next 58 days remaining of SP.
Andee (already in the FB groups! On MyNetDiary, MyFitnessPal, FatSecret, & LoseIt now as MAMADEE016 & trying to see if any of them will allow me to blog like SP blogs)
I'm going to miss your blog posts so much. I've only been on here a couple of months but you have become one of the highlights of my day. I'll send a friend request on Facebook. Maybe you will blog there :) Linda Barker Facebook name also. Yuma AZ, USA 40 days ago
I copied the info - thank you - I will miss your blogs on here but also can't wait to see have we all emerge from all this. I know a lot of people have gone to the SP alumni group on FB - still asking a lot of questions tho. My FB is patty spencer - my icon is yellow daisies (because when you send a friend request that's really all the information a person sees (name and icon) - my email is email@example.com 40 days ago
