Paying it Forward
Sunday, March 24, 2013
One thing I learned from KAYECAN, a Sparkfriend who sadly quit and deactivated her page last year, was the value in reaching out to new Sparkers.
Remember what it was like to be new, to write those first few tentative blogs? Before you had a comfortable group of Sparkfriends?
Every week or so when I have a few extra minutes, I like to find some new Sparkers and their first blogs and welcome them to Sparkpeople and encourage them. I often subscribe to their blog so I can continue to comment and give them feedback and support. Sadly, they don't always stick around, but people aren't always ready to put in the work just because they've signed up on the website, right?
If you are interested, here's what you need to do: Click on COMMUNITY at the top right-hand side of your Sparkpage. Then select BLOGS.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you'll see NEW BLOG ENTRIES. Click on SEE MORE.
As you can see from this page, you can see the newest blog postings, the popular blog postings, or people's first blog postings.
Give it a try! It feels good to reach out!! SPARK ON!
