Frustration with a featured blog

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Blog today featured in my mail:
Confession: I Don't Change in the Locker Room
This was a good blog actually with lots of comments. This was my comment: Number 718:

Where is the POLL?? I was already to pick mine. Seriously--don't advertise something and then not have it be there.

I LOVE COACH NICOLE!! Her videos- blogs- her looks- how she dresses- her attitude. What isn't there to love?
.... Me thinks..... someone added that question to her blog.....

I used to be very self-conscious. After I had my daughter I was a little less shy. It was not until I became loved and accepted for who I was that went away. It really was/is a great feeling.
I think there are several reasons for this change in girls today:
One is because the clothes that some wear are so revealing. Not to mention the couple of scrapes of cloth that is called bikini. Really doesn’t leave much to the imagination any more. I think that is both good and bad. Good for the openness but where is the anticipation?
Two more children are being taught self-worth as they are growing up. Somehow- my daughter was accepting of herself regardless of her weight. Wish I had been like that. How freeing that would have been when I was young.
It is freeing. I am that way now- it only took me 50+ years

I think those shower scenes were written by men because that is what they wanted it to be like. :)

The poll should have been right at the end of the blog. I know I should let this go- but when it is a big successful site like SparkPeople is I get frustrated at some of the little things that are missed. Maybe they can edit the blog and include it like we can edit our comments and blogs.

Now.... can someone send me the link so I can cast my vote and see the results?

I received a reply from support: Took about 90 minutes. That is super great for support for any day and today is Saturday Night!

In that particular blog, they are referring to an informal poll where members can leave their own comments on the blog itself. At the end of the blog, you'll notice a few bolded lines of text to prompt that discussion. Sorry for that confusion!"

I don't know about you but A DISCUSSION IS NOT A POLL.
Of course that is just my opinion
