Hi Everyone

Thanks for watching the Entertainment Tonight story!

Responding to some comments from members who wished it was longer, here are a few thoughts about this:

1) Anytime we're able to get a positive story about SparkPeople in front of millions of viewers on such a great show - especially one that prominently shows the logo and URL - then we'll take it! This helps us continue to build momentum. So, we thank ET very much for covering the amazing story building here every day. They are "ahead of the curve" in understanding that something great is happening at SP.

2) This is one reason our book is soooooooooooo important to everything we're doing. If the book sells well, then EVERYTHING will change in terms of getting additional media coverage. We'll have so many people interested in covering SparkPeople that I won't be able to keep up. And of course, I'll want as many members as possible to join me and our team in this coverage. Bottom line, if the book sells well, we'll be spreading the spark to so many more people.

Here's a link to the ET story if you weren't able to see it (one fix on the text on their site - thousands sign up every day, not month):

SparkCheers and thanks for your support!

    Aw I missed this too.

But yes, I agree, any exposure is great. Several people at work have now joined Sparks and we even had our own work group fitness challenge.

    Late seeing this but Awesome! Anytime anyone notices my weight loss I tell the Sparkpeople.com check it out. It is great seeing Sparkpeople getting media coverage. Congratulations and hope the book is the #1 best seller!

    Sparkguy--you are great! The story disappointed me because it was a blip and then it was gone. You are right though, the more PR the better. I just hope it reached the hurting folks out there who feel there's no hope for them.

    Thanks for posting the link. I don't have cable TV. Sparkpeople is awesome. I am totally motivated by the whole system you guys have going. I have been learning a lot about how to be healthy and I have found that I don't have to deprive myself of carbs and I can still lose weight.
Take care!
Peace in Christ

    Thanks for letting us be a part of this!!!! Every little bit counts:). I'm glad we aren't as seedy or taudry as the kinds of things that got more air time- if it takes being involved in Michael Jackson's death to get air time, then I'm glad we didn't get as much. I did think it was funny that they paired us with "More to Love," though.
