Changes I'll be making and why
Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Lately, I've concluded that I spend too much time on Spark People. So I'm going to trim. For one thing, I'll start with rarely going to the Community Feed, but might occasionally check the #mobilechat that was good at first, but now its rarely used. The rest of the community feed is not anything like it used to be. I rarely see my SP friends there. If one of my SP friends post there, I'll still make a comment. but I won't be going there and make comments there on random people that I won't see another post by them again. That used to be where we found friends and help each other. That's not happening. I also don't like the underwear pictures. I can tell a fully dressed over weight person is over weight with out looking at them in underwear. I find it offensive. There are things that should be kept private and if you really want to share those pictures, put them in a blog.
Next, I'm cutting my 160 friends down. If you've at least liked some of my accomplishments and comments on my feeds, you're probably safe. Some of my SP friends joined SP and then lasted a few days and left SP. If you've recently given me Spark Goodies, I won't delete you. The ones I will probably delete are those that I give encouragement to all that I can, but rarely if never hear from then. They might go.
The Spark Goodies I like getting them, but I'm really bad about giving them. I don't think of it and time gets in the way. It all takes time. That's why I need to do some trimming.
I plan to still be active in my teams and at least finish the challenges I've committed to do. After the challenges end? I don't know. They aren't a bad thing, but it takes time to keep it up.
I know I'll get less Spark Points, but they are a lot of fluff anyway. All they are really good for is buying Spark Goodies and I already commented on that.
I'll still look at the articles, because I'm constantly looking for things to share at TOPS. I have 2 articles printed out that will probably take 3 weeks to go through.
With the time I don't spend on SP, I'll get back to things that I've neglected for too long. I'll also start crocheting again when riding in the car with my husband. Its a lot more friendlier than sitting with him with my nose in the phone, even though I pause to talk to him.
I know this is a baby step, so more cuts might come later. Some of this, I've already started doing. .
