Occasionally ... not often but occasionally

Monday, September 30, 2013

I get annoyed by the random drive by comments I get on my blog posts. They make me want to stop blogging. I really wish they didn't have that requirement that people need to comment on a certain amount of blogs in order to stay a Team Leader because it just gets silly sometimes.

These people know nothing about who you are or what you've done and they don't take the time to find out because they're simply trying to fulfill a requirement. I'm not talking about the people who are considerate and kind and say things like "Wow great day" or "Way to go" because those, as innocuous as they might be are kind and encouraging and I'm certainly not referring to the repeat visitors to my blog (thank you all by the way). I'm talking about the ones that respond to a post like "Wow I just realized I only had one bottle of water today" with things like "Drink eight glasses of water a day I did and it really works!" Well ... duh.

Okay so again, I do not blame the drive by commenters, I blame the system. Now I'm done. Thank you and have a nice day.

    You are entitled to feel whatever you want, but I hope it doesn't make you stop blogging. I love reading our teams blogs and being a leader for the Missourians! Team, my "job" is to read and comment on our team members blogs. It is not an easy job and I actually got burned out trying to say something witty and appropriately uplifting - so I took a break. If I ever made you feel that way, I apologize right now for it. I am hoping that by taking this break that I will come back stronger than ever and be able to do my "job" to be best of my ability.

    Good I'm glad I'm not the only one! :) I actually hesitated to write that because I didn't want anyone to feel bad. I know they probably don't like having to do it either. I agree though, take a minute to just skim the posters last week or so if nothing else so that your comment is sensitive and appropriate.

    I love when people comment though because it is inspiring and motivating and one of the things I like the very most about Sparkpages.

    I didn't even know that was a requirement! How annoying. It does irk me when I go through the 'recent blogs' to read and get some motivation, and I see the SAME person has gone through about 10 of them in a row and just posted a ' emoticon ' emoticon. I mean, I'm not knocking the use of that emoticon, but sometimes it's obvious they're not even reading the persons story, they're just posting to get spark points or something.

    Anyway, i'll stop ranting lol Just wanted to say I do agree with you. I guess we just need to be thankful for the people who comment who do really care, and ignore those ones that are posting for the wrong reasons.
