T-47 Cowboy Up Baby! A little secret about MUTUAL SPARK FRIENDS (wink)
Don’t you just love how one of your friends on your friend feed comments on someone blog or page and then you go check out that page or blog and find a new friend! I love how it just branches out and branches out to all kinds of great people here on Spark!
I use to be hesitant about adding more friends because I would think “HOW can I keep up with them all” LOL
NOW I have come to realize I just do the best I can to keep up with them… but NOT LET that thought keep me from adding all the wonderful people I run into as friends!
I just feel so blessed to find new friends here on Spark and
BELIEVE me… I feel blessed beyond measure when you ADD ME AS A FRIEND!
GO AHEAD… ADD ME….. “I dare ya” (wink)
I love that I can go to “SEE ALL UPDATES” on the right side of the page of Spark under “MY FRIEND FEED”
Then when it opens up that page
I see this:
Your Friend Feed shows the recent Community activities of your mutual SparkFriends. Click here to see or edit your list of mutual friends. You can also filter which Community activities you'd like to see in your Friend Feed.
Your mutual friends have their own Friend Feeds, which include updates of your Community activities. You can view what your Feed looks like to others as well as edit your privacy settings to control which of your activities are visible to your mutual friends.
I can click on the “CLICK HERE” part in the top paragraph and see whom I need to add as friends.
I don’t have to mess with reading the spark emails…. They are just too time consuming and I delete them all every week. THAT was spark EMAILS not Spark private msg. Emails! LOL
I can ALSO scroll down that page after I click on “ CLICK HERE” and see whom I have added but they have not added me back…
THEN I can leave them a msg on their page or send them a goodie asking them to please add me back…
I have a rule of thumb though….
IF I ever am on someone’s page and CHOOSE to add them as a friend JUST BECAUSE I like something I have read about them… or I like a blog I wrote…
I ALWAYS ALWAYS leave them some kind of note that I am adding them as a friend and I tell them how they inspire me or what I liked that day that caused me to add them!
I think that is just a good way to start a friendship… just by saying HI… you inspire me… I am adding you as a friend! I think it is a nice courtesy! Don’t you?
IF I find someone has added me (when I am on the “MUTUAL FRIEND LOOKUP” page (you know the one you get to by clicking on the “CLICK HERE” part in that above paragraph))
I might just click the box and add them that way.. I don’t always go to their page and thank them for adding me… simply because it sometimes is time consuming and I don’t always have the time.. YOU just do the best you can do…. (in my opinion)!
I generally like to swing by and say thanks for the friend add but don’t ALWAYS do that!
SO I guess most of you already knew this mutual friend look up was available! HUH?
ONE thing I will say is every few months I do delete friends from my friend list that have not updated their status for a couple of months or more…. UNLESS it is a special friend whom I connected with and I am dropping them notes that I miss them!
IF it is someone I never heard from and just really never “clicked” with and they are not active on Spark I just remove them.
HUGS to all of you in SPARKLAND! Ain’t Spark Grand?!!!!!!!
I am still ON FIRE SPARKIES and lovin’ it! I am doing ST and am not so sore now!!!
I am eating healthy and on plan.
T-47 days til NEW YEARS DAY!!!
DO YOU HAVE NEW YEAR GOALS… are you chasing after them like nobody’s business? Each day will pass… and things will stay the same if you don’t chase after your goals.
IF it is not working then change it up…
IF is is not working coz you ain’t workin’ it then START workin’ it!
If you think it will fall in your lap… while you sit there waiting for it too… then dream on… WAKE UP… coz it won’t!
If you don’t want to exercise coz you don’t “like” to exercise… well GET OVER IT… YOU need to move to be healthy! (hard one for me.. but baby I am doin’ it this time! HA HA)
AS my 24 yr old son says “COWBOY UP BABY COWBOY UP”
He says “LIFE”S tough momma bear… LIFE’S tough! ROLL with the punches and PUNCH BACK”
I think he is right, don’t you? (smiling big)
