I missed you this week. I read two really good books but had to return them to the box instead of to you because of the conference I went to. They were called The Fiction Class by Susan Breen and See No Evil by Allison Brennan. You should check them out sometime.
Are you still doing the SparkPeople thing? I haven't seen anything by you lately...
Re blogs... Yes, people can only view your blog if they come to your SparkPage but people can subscribe to your blog like I've done and I get an email letting me know when you've posted a new entry and also, at the bottom of each team's page, there's an update of its team members updated blogs, which is how I keep tabs on what my team's members are up to.
So, yes, if you want to post a message for everyone to read, you should post it in your team or on one of the message boards.
I started last June and by using Spark and some self discovery in the process, I'm down 25 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you will be discovering new and exciting things for at least two months! Good luck and enjoy this invigorating new healthy lifestyle.
