Tracking other Sparkers who have lost interest
Saturday, December 25, 2010
So I've been following a few people on Spark. I check on them once a week (usually on Saturdays) and usually leave a comment on their page. I keep a spreadsheet with a column for each person so I can see how they're doing over time.
Sometimes people lose interest. They stop updating their current status, stop posting blogs, and stop updating their weight ticker.
I still stop by their page and leave a note ... cuz I know how it is when you're going the other way and you don't want to admit it. Those of us with over-sized egos know the humiliation only too well.
Never the less, it grows tiresome when you try to be encouraging and the person never responds ... you begin to realize you're bothering the person more than helping.
(Yeah, yeah ... I know ... "third person." Save it.)
Therefore I have instituted new rules for "following." If your current status doesn't show (I think you have to go a week for it to drop off,) or posted a blog in the last month, or updated your weight ticker in the last month, then I will assume you have lost interest.
