Blogging Basics for SparkPeople Members


  • I've not ventured into blog world but will definitely start one here - in the hope I'll be motivated to start eating properly and get this weight off.. - 12/4/2011 1:37:00 PM
  • To all those that cannot find the 'Add a blog button' you have to set up your personal spark page first. That is where the button is. - 11/16/2011 2:14:23 PM
  • Help!!! I want to Blog but I can't figure it out. Sorry for being slow...Thank you!! - 9/29/2011 1:13:38 AM
  • I was curious about how could I start a blog here, there was no answer in the help area -- strange, by the way... So I found this article. Despite some information that was not that accurate (I found no "My Community" column and no link to my blog anywhere around and, of course, the link to my SparkPage didn't worked since... I had no page, but I made one latter on), I could start a blog and I am glad for that. Thank you for the article, I liked it and found it useful, a way to start a blog here.

  • Yea hi I'm Maa and it's my 4th day here in the spark community, I've been following a diet, made up from what no salts, no sugars, and not too much facts. My 4th day and my brain is still screaming out for some lolllllllieeeessss hard out, but when I look at the weight I'm carrying I scream back NOOOO wayyyyy!, I slowly but surely continue with my diet, record all my food, get my strength exercises done, my walks and record my cardio to get a record of the calories I've lost. So far is been a well earned loss of calories, and yes this programe is working for me and hopefully for the next 5 months I'm trying to lose the weight for summer, so good luck to me and to you's.....Maaa - 7/10/2011 5:40:48 AM

  • Sorry bloggers, I meant yesterday was a bad day 5/27/11. Today I am so out of it, so tired to do anything. But will just go to work and resume my work out may be tomorrow.
    best wishes everybody - 5/28/2011 1:34:39 PM
  • Today was not a good day for me, had 2 low blood sugar thus eating my worst favorite sweets and then topping it with a Chinese dinner. Lol I am sure I will pay big for this, that means more work outs to come!!!!

    I think this site is a bit bewildering, too, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. One thing I'm not totally clear on is how a blog would differ from a community journal ... just more visible? - 5/27/2011 9:52:08 PM
  • There should be a privacy setting for posts which the SP user can set to "SP Friends only" rather than having to make their whole page private if their blog contains a progress photo or personal info that the SP user might not want ALL OF SP to read, yet still wants to be accessible for new visitors. - 3/9/2011 12:42:01 PM
  • I have been thinking about blogging for some time now and the hinderance has revealed itself to me! The same person who I didn't like to look at in the mirror, is the same one who wa hesitant about positng a blog, as people normally like to see a picture of the person talking to them! So YES, becoming healthier has prompted me to share what has worked for me so far! The confidence boost that losing weight gives you is INCREDIBLE! I will talk more about that when I begin blogging. Look forward to the interaction with each of you!! - 3/7/2011 10:18:55 AM
