My Favorite Thing About Sparkpeople? (Entry #2)

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Another thing about Spark that I love surprises the heck out of me . . . the camaraderie. I've never liked social networking, whether through pyramid schemes or even Facebook, but I love that Sparkpeople actively promotes social contact by awarding points for blogs, comments on blogs, and message board posts.

The benefits have really hit home this week. For one thing, it's great practice for me being open and honest about what I'm going through, something essential on this LONG journey toward healthier living and losing weight. Second, I'm Sparkfriends with some amazing, inspirational, and beautiful individuals. Third, folks here really care and show their support for one another. I was having a tough week, not handling news about having to get my tonsils out well and not handling two long weeks of hearing nothing on a life-changing first home purchase well. Multiple Sparkfriends noticed my withdrawal, checked in via several venues, and helped me get back on track. I sure can feel the love! Can you? emoticon
