Hi guys, I am new to the group. I have been blogging for a while. I am currently on 3 blogs. My first one was phattofabulous.blogspot.com, I started it when I first decided I needed to do something to lose weight. It has over time morphed into me ranting and raving about any and everything.

I just recently joined a weight loss challenge blog, shakeitdivas.blogspot.com. Its a group of bloggers that all decided we needed to make better health decisions. We kind of are our own support group. We do a weekly weigh-in and are trying to track our losses with pics.

The other blog I am on a friend and I just started it is iseestoopidpeople.blogspot.com. I am sure you can tell by the name what it is about.

Glad I found the group, glad to be here!

~L~

My life is so full may my pants be less so!

Hi! 'Noob' here! I've been blogging for almost a year now and I'm addicted! I just started my weight-loss blog today...I've been wanting to start another one up, but have lacked motivation (I've had a couple before, but deleted them due to lack of readers)

But I just wanted to add, I too struggle with "how much is too much?" when writing about things or people that are bothering me. So I tend to either say nothing, which defeats the purpose of a blog for me, or say too much, then feel guilty and delete it. It's a tough balance!

I ALWAYS assume that someone will see what I've written. Unfortunately there are also those "well meaning friends" that will purposely inform someone of your rant and then you are there... stuck, yes it's online... no I didn't mention you by name but it is obvious it's you.... so I always assume a person will read what I write. If I can't share it with them in person, I probably shouldn't be writing it. If I do feel I need to write it, I make it a private post that nobody can read... and usually end up going back and deleting it when the steam has dissipated.

On LJ, I use filters, so only specific people can read things. I sometimes also use regular old MS Word and then don't put it on the internet. I don't put anything up that I wouldn't want people to see, you know? So if Friend A pisses me off and I want to rant, and I put it online, I understand that somehow, Friend A might yet see it.

Yes, I have multiple blogs at the same site. From my main page though I only link to the three that I wouldn't mind my family, friends, and students to read. Two of my five blogs are a bit more anonymous. I do give the links to those out to certain groups of people, but not to everyone.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll wait a bit to decide what I'm going to do. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the 4 journals I have already (MySpace, LJ, Sparks and written) I don't know what I would do with a 5th. ~lol~

I have multiple blogs, but they have their cataories which some are public, some are firends only and other are private and a few are for specific friends to be able to read

LJ is good for this ability I've found

I would suggest setting up another separate blog if you don't want to hurt feelings. Maybe a free Blogspot or Wordpress.com one.

Do any of you have multiple blogs on one site? As in one that everyone knows is you, and one where you can retain a bit of anonymity? My trouble is, I use my blog to rant about things that irritate me, and sometimes those irritants are my dearest friends...who happen to read my blog. How does everyone else cope with this, or am I just a freak?

Hi Shane,

I also run WorkPress on my site for my blog (i've been blogging before it had a name, use to upload static pages to my server with my thoughts comments and ideas (just wish I'd backed them up since I had been posted to the net my stuff since about 1994)

Hi everyone! I'm new to SP but not to blogging...I've been blogging since October of 2004. I originally started on Blogspot, but got some hosting and installed Wordpress, which rocks.

PEACEB2U, I left Blogger mainly for two reasons. First, I found it extremely difficult to navigate around the site and find other like minded bloggers. Secondly, I never got any comments to let me know that there was "anyone out there" reading my words. LJ is much more community oriented, and many of my "real life" friends also have bloggs there.

PeaceB2U: LiveJournal allows for more interactivity with other bloggers - I have a page that pulls up all the posts my friends have made recently. It also allows for comments from my LJ friends on my posts.

Blogger to me got a little more quirky as time went on. In fact, for the past year, I haven't been able to get it to upload recent posts. It just keeps telling me it fails. I have spent a lot of time trying to get archives working and it only works about half the time.

Also, LJ is a little easier if you don't know HTML, because it has a lot of WYSIWYG features for italics and stuff. I just find it more user friendly and it allows for an audience to read it more easily.

As I was reading below, I noticed that several of you mentioned that you have left Blogger for other blogging sites. Why is that? Are there some kind of better features at these other places?

Hi. Im addicted to Livejournal, you can find me at austenrowling.livejournal.com, I do have a xanga as well, but since joining SparkPeople, I havent been using it as much. I mostly used that one to track my exercise and weight loss. I pretty much blog about whatevers on my mind.

Kat001, I find that same sort of behavior (wanting butt kissing) on LiveJournal for people with paid accounts. Oh well. I'm still amazed by how many blogging places there are out there. I started with Blogger, since they were free, and as soon as someone gave me a code to LJ, I jumped ship.

But it's nice to have that internet friends thing around... and I've found a great group of very supportive friends on my weight loss journey. I guess I use that more than I use the SparkPeople forums - I just find them too time consuming (ha! a blogger calling something time consuming?!) to usually navigate.

Hi Paige,
Welcome to the Bloggers Team. I liked your blog, seems like you are keeping track of all the stuf that goes with this weight loss journey of ours. I like that. I do the same thing at http://fatty-katty.diaryland.com, well I'm trying to. Sometimes I'm not so great at it. But I'm getting better since I just started this whole weight loss thing over.

Hi Celtic,
I know what you mean about loving to get comments, I live for reader feedback on mine. I've found some great friends through my blog, it's a nice tight community I find.

Anyways, you can check out either of my blogs, my weight loss one is mentioned above or you can check out my everyday one at http://thedetails.diaryland.com

I like to use diaryland just because most of the folks I have connected with are there and I find it's easy to keep track of everyone through diaryland.
I know some folks don't like Diaryland, they didn't like the service for the paid accounts which I get because if you are paying for the account you should be getting your butt kissed.
On the other hand I just have the free account and I'm more than happy with it.

Hi all, I hope you don't mind that I joined your team. I've been blogging off and on for about 5 years or so, sometimes I blog alot, sometimes I go weeks without posting. Most of my stuff is just personal tidbits about my day, my life, what makes me happy and what makes me sad. I blog on three different places and many of my posts cross over.

You can find me on LiveJournal as ladymorgiana, at MySpace as Morgiana and I have a journal here as well. I used to blog on Blogger, but I did not find it to be user friendly, and since I love to have comments I found it frustrating that I wasn't getting any reads.

Anyway, sorry to take up all this space, just wanted to say hello.

It's funny; I always hated writing in school and never liked keeping a journal. However,I love blogging and can't stop at just one blog.

Here is the blog I started today to go along with one of my goals at SparkPeople.com It's going to be sort of an online motivational scrapbook for myself
http://www.peggydunn.com/makemesmile/

Here is my new personal journal:
http://www.peggydunn.com/mycourse/


Here is a list of some blogs I started a year or two ago:
http://www.peggydunn.com/menagerie/
http://www.peggydunn.com/aquariumblog/
http://www.peggydunn.com/tattooflash/

I'd love to have visitors stop by and leave comments.

Oh! Oh! Me! I'm a blogger! I started in 2001 with blogger and moved in 2003 to LiveJournal. I give everyone one guess as to what my LJ name is.

Blogging is just my way of talking and getting things in my brain on paper. Much of what I say is inane but it's kind of cathartic and I've made a lot of COOL friends that way. In fact, it's where I do most of my SparkPeople updating - since I already have an audience. :D

Hey Everyone, I sort of went MIA there for a while. I fell of the fitness wagon, but I've managed to jump back on and hopefully this will be the last little hickup in my progress. Well it probably wont be, but I can hope that it will be.
Anyways, I've started up a new blog
http://fatty-katty.diaryland.com
I have written my workout plan there and I'm keeping track of my fitness there now as well.
There is going to be more that gets added there, but I'm working on ironing out the kinks first.
Anyways, I just thought that I'd share.
I'm still at
http://thedetails.diaryland.com
Just thougth I'd let you know that I'm back and wont be going any place

Hi Terri. Kids are so much fun. Mine is always doing something new and 5 minutes later I'm on the phone with everybody I know telling them what she did this time lol.

Does anybody on here that uses blogspot.com use Adsense? Could you explain it a little better to me?

Wow! I am really glad that there are so many blogs out there about getting and staying out of debt. My main problem is that we don't even make enough money to pay the basics, much less our other debts. It sure would be nice to simplify my life by taking care of that.

Hello, I just joined the group and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Shenai. I'm 24, a mother and college student. I'm pretty new to blogging so I'm sure that you all could teach me a few things lol. But you can check out mine at http://allshenaiallthetime.blogspot.com/
I just started it yesterday so it's a work in progress.

Great blogs! And some very nice pics on them as well... I always have to fight my blog to get the pic formatting right... one of these days.

Hey you bloggers!

I feel your frustration when you talk about editing the look of blogs. I'm no techie, so I had the hardest time trying to make things work when I was using blogger. I eventually switched over to my own site to simplify things a little. Needless to say, I really envy those of you who are html-savvy. I wish I could be that on the ball with coding!

BohemianGirl—with Blogger, you can edit your design if you know a little HTML. That's the hardest part, and there are some good online tutorials to help. Here's a couple:
http://www.w3schools.com/html/
http://www.pageresource.com/html/index2.
htm
http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/

The other option is to get a pre-made design. There are lots of good free ones out there for Blogger if you just want to change the look a little.

Hi Bookchiq and everyone,
I just popped over to view your blog and bookmarked it to read more later. I like it.
I am teaching myself how to design my blog and it's sort of hunt and peck but I'm learning.
Do you know how I can change my heading and put some photo's there?
This is my current blog of interest to me because of the inspiration from Spark.

Hi, all, I just joined you. I have several blogs:

frugalunderground.com : personal finance
somethingepic.com : spiritual ramblings, usually

+ a few more that I'm still creating. I do blog design/development for a living and it's hard to find time to do my OWN!

Pink Pear, one of the best things I do to indulge my cooking inclinations and not EAT IT ALL is to cook for potlucks and gatherings. In my case, it's pretty easy because I go to a church that has a potluck every week, so I make food the night before and take it. That way, I get a taste (and lots of compliments, usually) without over-indulging.

Thanks! I love my vintage cameras to bits, but they are really taking over the house! My boyfriend is a pro photographer so you can just imagine the amount of equipment we have lying around our apartment (I think our camera stuff easily outnumbers the furniture count!!)

That is so cool that you use vintage cameras!

Hey bohemian girl, nice blog! I'm really into photography too, although it's less the "real" kind (I collect and use toy and vintage cameras only).

You have some lovely pictures!

I blog about my kids, my husband, my dog, folks who annoy me, news stories that upset me or inspire me, pretty much anything that comes to my mind. But mostly it's about the kids, the Hubby (and the crap he does to piss me off) and my daily life. So it's pretty much boring stuff because anyone who has read my blog can tell you that I have no life other than housework and raising a family. Like I said, boring.

Thanks bohemiangirl!

Actually I really miss making elaborate dishes and desserts. I'm looking forward to being able to start baking unhealthily again sometime, but not till I either get skinny to the point where it doesnt matter or sprout some self control!

What does everyone else here blog about?

About hits...

Yeah, when I started my first blog I sent a link to 12 friends and that was it!
A week later I was surprised to find out that I was having over 600 hits daily!
I guess people liked my sillyness!

I didn't realize there was a group for bloggers. Mind if I join you guys? I used to have a food blog but had to give it up because of the diet :( so I switched over to more of a daily-life blog to avoid being tempted by my cookbooks!

Hi Fattysue! There are a lot of free services out there such as livejournal.com, diaryland.com (where I got my start) and blogger.com. I recommend blogger as you get your comments for free. Good luck and let us know where to find your blog (if it's public)!

That's what I've done. I have public sites like this one and the one on stumbleupon, and I'm free to use either as a blog, but my private spot... I've disabled comments, there's no counter, I don't even know if I'm in a directory, and even if someone comes across it I don't have to know about it and it isn't associated with me.

Mrs. Dormouse: I blog that way as well. I have a locked diary that I do not give the password to anyone. It's full of private thoughts and random rants about things in my life that I just can't share with anyone.
I used to keep it all in one place but I found that I didn't want to share it all with everyone so this worked out nicely for me.

I have a blog but it's far too personal to share. It's the one place I can count on privacy... the one place I can spill everything out and satisfy my craving to write at the same time.

Am I the only one who blogs this way?

Hi all, I just found this group and I have to say that this one fits me really well because I’m so addicted to writing and reading blogs.
I’m in Diaryland at thedetails.diaryland.com and at fatty-katty.diaryland.com and I’m also at talktomuch.diaryland.com (but that ones just jokes and stupid stuff) See I am addicted!

Bohemiangirl: I blog about whatever comes to my mind when I’m sitting at the computer. It’s mostly all about my family though.

Bizygirl: I’d love to read your online paper, you’ve got to let us know when it launches.

Nizzle: I love Firefly so much that a friend of mine got me all the episodes and the movie for Christmas and my kids walk around singing the theme song as well as Jayne’s song ~ all the time! (Jayne’s song is from the episode Jaynestown, where Jayne has become a sort of local Robin Hood like hero ~ ha lol!)
