I find commenting on first blogs is a great way to not only motivate them, but myself as well. Plus, I make new SparkFriends that way, too!

If you head over to Site &TEchnical help, there's a thread for this. They're working on it. :) This forum's mostly just for motivational issues, that's the place to post site help questions!

Thanks! I know how to reset the articles; I've had to reset the quizzes several times and it is in the same area. But I don't think it resets the blogs.

Thing is, I _know_ I haven't read some of the blogs that it says I have. I never read smoking related blogs (smoking grosses me out) but today I got desperate and opened one but it said it had already been read. It isn't something I read and forgot.

Oh well, there is still a lot of content on the site; I just like to get points for it. emoticon

I think what's happening is that they are reposting blogs that were written earlier (even 2-3 years), but with that day's date. I suspect they have a hard time putting blog after blog after blog out there and keeping up that pace.

There's a way that you can reset the articles you've read so that it's a fresh start (so you can read again if you run out of them, like I have in the past). I don't know if that also resets the points on blogs though. Let me know if you need to do that on the articles and I can track it down for you.

One of the things I love about spark are the various options to stay motivated. Isn't it funny how we all get our motivation in different ways. But you and I sound like we do a lot that is the same.

One way I stay motivated is to get all my SparkPoints each day. Overall, using SparkPoints has done more than just motivate me; I've learned a lot too. I do pretty well on the Trivia and Quizzes because of all I've learned from reading the articles and blogs.

Lately, I've been reading blogs I know I've never read before but the icon at the bottom says I have. What's up with that? It is frustrating to say the least. I'm coming up short on my daily points because I can't read the 2 blogs per day that gives us points. A minor problem I suppose.

I vote for more articles, blogs, quizzes and videos to watch and read and get points for. It keeps me focused. Is there a place where we can suggest topics?
