New page to show popular blog posts


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, August 28, 2009



Hi everyone

Members have told us how much they love blogs, both writing their own and reading inspirational entries from other members. So we created a new page to show "Popular Blog Posts." This shows posts from the past few days that have received a lot of comments and "I Liked This" votes.

You can reach this page by clicking on the Community Home tab, then clicking the "Explore More Great Blog Posts" link in the Blogs section of the page. You can also follow the link below:

  This is a resonable approach to following and commenting on things of interest for everyone. I personally am interested in ways to exercise and use less energy. I have found a great way to actually generate free power.

    Please add an option where we can filter by newest rather than most popular. I really enjoy commenting on blogs from new people, who need the most encouragement and are the least likely to have their blogs appear on the 'popular' scale (after all, they are new and are only beginning to get SparkFriends).

    Personally, I like the blog lookups the way they were... but the idea is to be able to please all of the people all of the time - so kudos for the new addition. THere are many who will enjoy reading the most popular ones.

  I am glad there is a way to check the most popular blogs. They are usually that way because they are encouraging and positive. Thanks for offering them. How about putting a link on our start pages so we can check in each day and go directly to them? (Does that mean I am lazy? Or just confused?)

  I always seem to go over in my fats, even though they are mostly from good fats like olive oil and nuts. How do I keep my fats low and still get protein?

  I enjoy reading all the inspiring stories that are posted. It helps me to stay focus and postive, since I have signed up I keep track of all my eating habits and water intake, and exercise. It is a great way to count my calories and so far I have lost 3 lbs.

So Thank you, emoticon

    I'd love to see a feature that would allow a button for 'Print Friendly Version'. Just something that would let me do an easy print of my blog and possibly the comments that people add to it after in a format that would not include all the graphics & such that are on the web page. I'd like to print the blog, not the webpage. I hope that makes sense.

    I love reading blogs and I liked it when I could go back to the regular blogs from any particular blog I read. Now it says " See Today's Most Popular Member Blog Posts". I don't want to go there, I want to read everyone's blog popular or not so, I have to go back to community home and choose to go back to the blogs that way.

    this is an incredible enhancement from a user experience standpoint but is also easy to cheat - create 100-1000 user id's, comment on your test id and you will appear in the top blogs where you could post advertisements or random unwanted or unimportant stuff.

have you ever logged on and tabbed from userid field to the password field? why does it go to the forgot password link? i just wondered....

    I am inspired and motivated when I read the words of others, see their progress and identify with their struggles. We all have much to learn and sharing our stories is a way to journal our journey and connect with others for support and motivation. Good decision to do this!

    This site is very fortunate to have such a vast number of great writers that provide us with such wonderful reading material. What about some bigger incentives for our authors. A bonus of 3 sparkpoints is really not much of a deal.

I like reading all the blogs, I can't find the others. How can a blog become popular if you can't find it to read it?

    This is good - but now the link from my sparkpage that used to go to "Today's Most Popular" blogs is now going to this new page - which has blogs that are several weeks old on top.

Is there a bug here?
