Also put a link in here to direct us to a blog that inspired you or that you think could benefit from some encouragement too.

All right Sac Sparkles team, lets try to get to know each other better in 2014.

The team goal of reading AND commenting on 7 blogs a week, was intended to get the team involved in encouraging each other and hopefully getting to know each other a little more. PLUS, if you comment on a blog you also earn Spark points.

So think about adding this team goal to your personal goals and start tracking the goal and see where it takes us this year.

-Sabrina AKA mimulusbug

The taskbar is quite a handy feature, but SPARK PEOPLE hopefully will 'clean it up'
It is another ADVERTISING SPOT.. and quite annoying. I turned mine OFF.

Mine did that the other day - and I figured that it was with the new 'task bar' that SPARKPEOPLE has added to the bottom of our pages when we are 'on'...............I turned off the task bar and it quit doing it.

I love to read and comment on the blogs but on my laptop lately, every time I open someone's page, it will keep loading it over and over until I shut down my computer and turn it back on. It must be some sort of virus. Is anyone else having this problem? It only happens on other people's spark page, not on the message boards or trackers or anything else. Weird, huh?

SNUZSUZ, you have really been doing great!!! I don't think you do get a lot of pionts for reading & commenting on blogs, but I find it to be a wonderful way to get to know people and sometimes an opportunity to provide bit of encouragement.

I managed to read & comment on 5 blogs today.

I read and comment on a few almost every day also, but I think they only count the first 2 for points.

Awesome................keep up the good work.

We do what we can do - when we can do it. Nothing worse than feeling that you are always BEHIND. Just take each day as you can and accomplish a few baby steps to get you where you are going. emoticon

Well, I haven't been doing too with reading a blog a day -mostly cuz I can't seem to get logged on everyday to computer or Spark People. I think what I'm going to do is read and comment on several blogs a day that hopefully add up to 7 in a week. To track better I think I'm going to enter the blogs here and also try to say hi on new team member blogs. I see how that goes the rest of the month.

2 blogs read & commented on w/encouragement today :-)

Well I did it. I was able to read and comment on 7 blogs this week. I enjoyed it but some days I found myself spending way too much time on Spark (almost 3 hours) cuz I was reading blogs & commenting; which was too much.

This week I'm going to try to do it again, but also try to keep my Spark time down; w/maximim time of 2 hours in a day.

OK I just commented on MRSBIGDOG916's 2/14 blog:

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journa
l_individual.asp?blog_id=4016770

She's committing herself to a new schedule and is asking for support & encouragement to make it happen; and thought you might want to swing by and check our her blog.

I'm going to now prepare an updated schedule for myself to post/blog about here shortly.

Alright: I hoping for a perfect record reading and commenting on 7 blogs this week. I hope others can do as well. Hmmmm, I think I'm going to have to check on CALIKIKI blogs (she was the one that suggested this goal before the holidays -as I recall).

the secret to my weight loss was that I posted my food before or shortly after my meals
Also I was walking, at first for 10 minute stretches just as Chris suggests.
I am now able to walk 3 to 5 miles at a time.
So I am going to do that.
I will also respond to one blog a day.
Every day. More some days but...
Did you read the blog about Beonce's back up singer who is 15 pounds from goal and trying to make it " big" but healthy?


Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

Tracking those blogs, well it was hard and I never figured out where to 'record' them. I know I read at least that many every day - so I am going to concentrate on tracking my food (which I don't usually do) and still read and enjoy what others are writing. emoticon

Well, the 7 blogs a week goal has been harder to do than I thought it would be. Especially when you have company in town.

So I'm back to trying to do this in January 2011. Hope a few more of you join me.

I enjoy reading other peoples blogs and have quite a few that I follow almost religiously - however - TRACKING THEM? Not so sure I can remember to do that. Willing to give it a try and see what happens.

At last nights meet up the topic about reading other peoples blogs came up. We all found that reading other folks blogs can be encouraging, uplifting and helpful very often. On occasion, we are able to leave an encouraging comment on other folks blogs!

One of the new members actually tries to read and comment on 15 blogs a day!!! I was amazed and thought I should add reading & commenting on blogs as a team goal. I'm keeping the goal small like 1 a day or 7 in a week. I know that some of us will be able to do more in the week than this, but also know that many probably find it hard to do even 1.

I'm going to set our team goal at 1000 blogs a month. I hope enough folks will join this goal and remember to track it.
