Mystery solved! I was a little perplexed why we were growing so much all of a sudden -- a wonderful thing!! Turns out our team was a featured team, so a lot of people must have seen us in that featured list and wanted to check us out. Cool beans, eh?

Glad to have all the new members!!

Hm... There's something a little screwy about how Spark keeps track of goodies. Anyhoo -- long story -- I *think* I'm caught up on sending out gnomes (and I think you got TWO, JennyLynn! :)). But if I missed someone and you want one, just let me know and I'll send it!

Thanks, Michelle!

Erika, I hope they don't give you a hard time. Hey, if you can stick with healthful eating while on vacation (or just a weekend away), you'll be doing better than I did :)

Great ideas you guys - my Sparkpage is in major need of updating, so this gives me a place to start. For now though, off to the cottage and my relatives' passive aggressive comments about my food choices.

Okay. I have updated my about me section to where my now info is at the top. And I included a moving link as well.
I also included a cpl quotes that you can see in my signature line as well as a link to a moving video.

We gotta start somewhere right?

Oooh, I love that idea! I'm going to add Michael Pollan's quote to my signature:

Michael Pollan: 'Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.'

AND that's a great idea to put info on our Spark Pages about our choices. I don't think I've mentioned there that I don't eat red meat.

Thanks, Funky_chicken! Keep the ideas flowing! :)

Most of my Spark friends already know I am a vegetarian. I am not shy about it. HOWEVER there are those where it never comes up. So I can definitely make a more conscious effort of making my vegetarian lifestyle more of...hey I Just thought of something. I have a lot of ppl always adding me. I have not changed my about me section since in the beginning when I signed up. I maybe added to it once. So this weekend I will work on changing my about me and making it more about my lifestyle choices of today instead of 3 years ago. I am not that person anymore anyway.
Ooh ooh and I will find a way to incorporate a vegetarian quote in to my signature line too.

That's all I can think of for now. But if everyone on the team made changes like that then maybe we can watch our team grow.

Welllllll..... :)

First we have to get there! So:

A) Evangelize! Promote the team and flexetarianism whenever you can to help our team grow. It is, afterall, a healthier diet -- reducing meat consumption -- and so the more people who know about that, the better (whether they join our team or not).

B) Invite your Sparkfriends to join.

C) Participate in our team discussions to make our team a fun and informative place for folks to come and visit. Post recipes, share ideas, encourage your team-mates, etc.

As for the 5000 celebration, an online party??? :) What ideas do you have?

I think we should do something cool and awesome when our team membership reaches 5000. We were just over 4900 when I became coleader, so... theoretically in a few months we could reach 5000!
