Just some thoughts

Monday, November 26, 2012

I have been thinking about making my spark page private. I like to have it open because I like welcoming people & making new spark friends but at the same time, I worry about my blogs getting lost in cyberspace and getting them into the hands of someone I don't get along with. Probably a ridiculous thought but you never know where things could end up. Am I being ridiculous? I am not sure what I will do yet.

I have also been thinking about changing my spark name. Just something that reminds me to keep trying even on my worst days. Then again, I feel kind of attached to my spark name. It's weird. There is no particular reason why I chose it. I like stars. I like blue stars and I like the song "When the stars go blue" which is just a coincidence so I don't know why I feel attached. Maybe because I had this name for son long. I have been thinking about changing it for a few months. I am also still deciding on this but leaning toward change. :)


I added some people to my spark friends today. People who I should have added a long time ago. I usually try to add people right away. I get SO distracted sometimes and sometimes I do things late so don't be disheartened if I haven't added you yet or you were added late. I was thinking about that earlier as I was adding people who I already considered my friends & was thinking why aren't they already on my page? How did I miss this! How terribly rude of me. Anyway, it doesn't matter if I get distracted. No excuses. My supporters deserve better! I am sorry and know that I appreciate each & every one of you very much. emoticon

    If you don't have any major identifying information on your page (full name, clear photograph, city (excluding metro area) and state, etc) then don't worry about people finding your page. If they know your screen name or know how to find your page, then that's one thing to think about. Otherwise, worring over 'what ifs' and 'coulds' is wasted energy.

    As for your screen name, that's a personal choice. If you're looking for more motivation there's many things you can change besides your screen name like updating your sparkpage, changing your profile image, making a vision collage to put by your computer, etc. If you are ready to change your S/N then take some time to find one you really like and give it a shot. As long as you don't de-friend anyone and write a blog about the change, it will be fine. Your sparkfriends will be around whether you have a new S/N or not. Just like if you don't add anyone right away or not, it's not the end of the world and it isn't a big deal. Being supportive and helpful is so much more important than adding as a friend within a certain amount of time.

    emoticon Like your background. Maybe you need to change your name, especially since it has been on your mind for awhile!
