Goodbye Sparkpeople

Monday, June 07, 2021

After hearing about it and reading the article about Sparkpeople ending I have to say; for me it is goodbye. Spark America is not the same as Sparkpeople. First of all it is only for Americans not anyone in other countries. Secondly, it is only for working people not retired or unemployed people as my daughter found out. Thirdly. certain groups will no longer be on it like the BLC or others. Fourthly, we will lose all the recipes we had on Sparkpeople. Fifthly, the loss of friends I made through the teams on here. I am not on Facebook that much and do not trust it that much either. It will not be the same. No way Jose! Sixthly, no blogs mean there is no way to connect and tell others in a blog what is going on in your life and have encouragement.
And sixthly, the cost is not free anymore; I cannot afford to pay 10 dollars a month on a fixed budget.
I am sorry Sparks but you disappoint me greatly! I will miss all of you my friends and your support. It is all about the money I am afraid.

P.S. Forgot to mention there are no cities in Wisconsin when you put your info down either. What gives with that?

    I just joined. This is all new to me. What is this about paying 10 dollars monthly? Do they ask you first or just bill you. Why all these changes.

    I’m sad, angry, and simply shocked. I will grieve the loss of this irreplaceable family. emoticon

    Stick with it for the BL challenge. Our last weigh in is August 11th so we still have time for one last challenge. Our challenge admins are trying to work something out and hope it isn't goodbye forever my friend. Let's end this sparkpeople journey with a bang!

    It is indeed, a very sad day.

    I am certain that there is some issue with sustaining themselves through the current financial pandemic facing the world at the moment.....but it's still necessary for a detailed note from the company to let us know what is going on and what we can now expect...
