Bad news guys. Coach Nancy said that it is not an option to not share blogs. She did say she would pass my feedback back to the spark team but I am only one person so if you guys aren't happy with the option, you are going to have to say something as well.
I do think we should be notified of things like this. It's not right to share someone's personal thoughts unless you have their permission. I know blogs aren't exactly private but the reason we share them here is because a lot of us understand each other and pass no judgment.
On the other hand, I think it is flattering if someone is inspired enough by your blog to want to share it or even thinks it's worth sharing for any reason.
Still, I want be opt out of allowing others to share my blogs but I can't find that option when I went to edit my page. I looked and there was no section like! :O
Thanks for letting us know!!

Thanks for the heads up but I don't mind the share
Is that choice still supposed to be there? I looked this morning and can't find that statement under "edit" at the top. That "share" icon is still on all my blog posts, though.

Thank you for the heads up Sheila. I agree with you. I want to have that control, not have someone else have it.

I just wanted to share some info I received from a leader of another team I'm on:
This information came to me from another member
Through another blog I just learned of a new feature on SparkPeople that automatically added a "Share Bar" to our blog entries. I do not like this feature.
If you'll notice your own blog now there is a "Share" bar at the top of the blog. That means if someone likes your blog entry they can "share" on their Facebook wall!! Who wants his/her blog about losing weight to show up on someone else s' facebook wall?
To delete this "Share bar" feature from your blog do this:
Go to your SparkPage.
Click to Edit the page.
On the top Un-check "Show share bar on my blog posts".
Save your changes.
This is apparently a new feature of SparkPeople that I was not aware of. I have unchecked this feature as I do not want my blogs shared by others. It's different if I want to share my own blog but .......
Personally, I don't want my information shared unless I want to share it -
