For those who have never done a Blog entry before, go to your SparkPage. On the top of the page, there is am area to click that says, "blogs". When you get to that page, click on "Add a Blog Entry". Then you will have a blank sheet that also has a place for a title of the blog. Decide on a title and then write. Even if you only write a few lines for your first blog, that is fine. It does not have to be long. In fact, I don't like to read blogs that are too long, don't have time!
emoticon

Now about subjects: You can write about why you joined SparkPeople, how you are progressing, what article on SP you read that might have encouraged you, etc. For the challenge, write something encouraging, don't be too negative. We want to encourage others, and at the same time encourage ourselves.

A hint on the title of a blog. If you write a catchy title, people will come to your blog to read it. I will say that if people entitle their blog entries: "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", etc, I do not go to read their blogs. I do not have time to read of daily activities in detail and the title of these blogs seem to be about what happened on a certain day. Perhaps the blog is really good and encouraging to others but I will not know that by it's title.

By the way, we get 3 points a day for blogging! emoticon

We also get points for commenting on people's blogs, up to two blogs a day, one point each!

My goal this year (one of them) is to try to blog every day on SP. So, if you go to my Spark Page, you will see 10 blogs for the year (I already messed up and forgot to blog one day). Which reminds me, I need to get today's blog in.

I just posted a bunch of entries in my Spark blog - dating from about Dec 19 - but not one of them was about weight or losing weight. I like to include pictures - and these were from Alaska, which has just had an additional 24 hours straight of snow (on top of way more than usual )

If you already have a spark page, it is super easy to add a blog post. Go to your page, click on a button on the top that says blogs. Go to "view blog entries," and one of the buttons says "add a blog entry" - I have no idea how to get there if you haven't already done a blog, but I bet you can find it if you "noodle around" - remember that you can't break anything!

If you don't have a spark page, now is a great time to start one! Play around with it! Have fun! It's easy! It doesn't have to be perfect!

Dance like no one is looking.

Love like you've never been hurt.

Live like you'll never die.

Write a blog at least once during the weekend and let us know the title of your blog. Make it an encouraging blog, giving positives. If you write sometime negative, make sure that you balance it off with positives. Be encouraged and encourage others.

Are you "in" for this challenge? If so, don't forget to let us know when you have finished the blog entry and also let us know what is the title of the blog.

Second part of the challenge is to read AND comment on at least one blog written by challenge members.

Have fun!
