Get Your Own MyFitnessPal Blog

As many of you have discovered, I've had a blogging feature almost ready on the site for some time now.  Member blogs have been secretly available if you knew the URL to get to them, but they were buggy and incomplete, and I just haven't had the time to finish them.

But this weekend, I finally buckled down, coded my little butt off, and launched member blogs!  I'm hoping the blogs will be a great way for all of us to share our weight loss experiences, as well as our best tips and advice.

HOW DO I CREATE MY BLOG?

To create your blog, just go to the "My Home" tab, then click on "My Blog" - your blog is already there, waiting for you to start writing posts.

POPULAR POSTS AND VOTING

I've also created a popular posts page to highlight the best posts from all the blogs in the MyFitnessPal community.  How do I determine what the best posts are, you might ask? Well, I don't - you do!  Each post on a blog has a small "voting" feature next to it.  When you read a post that you like, recommend it to the rest of us by voting it up.  The posts that receive the most votes will appear on our popular posts page. 

From the popular posts page, you can also see any recent posts that have been made but haven't gone popular yet.  Just click on the orange "Recent" link to see the latest posts, and vote up the ones you like to help share them with the rest of us.

If you find a blog post that contains inappropriate content, i.e. spam or advertisements, offensive material, etc., you can also vote it down.  Enough down votes will cause a post to get buried where no one will see it any longer.

As always, I've tried to do my best to find any bugs, but with any new feature, there are always some kinks to work out.  If you have any problems with your blog, just let me know on the forums or in the comments and I'll do my best to get the issues resolved ASAP.

I'm looking forward to reading all of your posts!  Hope you're enjoying the site!

I love the blog and everything about this site.

Do you forsee in the future perhaps adding the option of letting people pay a small fee like ($5/year) to have the ads removed? I know you need to make money to support the site but the google ads are annoying. That way the people who don't mind looking at the ads can still have their free service but some of us could opt out of the ads by making a small donation...just a thought.
