Are You a Lurker?
Wednesday, April 07, 2021
Lurker - a person who lurks, in particular a user of an internet message board or chat room who does not participate.
Well, I admit, I do look, check out, and investigate SparkPeople members. BUT, I do try to engage! As a new team leader, I’m trying to find out who is active and who is not. Surprise, or no surprise, some signed up (as far back as 2006) with great intentions - the why, the how and the promise to self. And then nothing. Missing in action. MIA. I was one of those, for years!
Now I am a year in, fully invested, making progress, and connecting with likeminded Sparkies. Success! I understand the privacy piece. Who really wants to post before pictures? Ugh. You don’t have to post your name, email, location, etc. Stay safe!
Sadly, one of my Spark friends had to turn off her page because of not-so-positive comments. That makes me so sad, and angry. She really is being successful and is a Spark motivator.
Don’t be a lurker! Connect, but be encouraging and positive. Connecting is a piece of this successful journey. Leave a message, a goodie, a post or a blog. Your contribution matters.
