Sunday: The Blogging Game

by Jason Boom on January 13, 2008

I woke this Sunday morning with a strong desire to see what key bloggers had written to their blogs. It is Sunday afterall and what blogger doesn’t give it their best on Sunday? As I was sifting through blogs, I read the Blogging Tips post from the Deborah Ng on how she spends her normal days. For her, the idea of it being Sunday seemed to call upon the other days of the week in a type of review. Does this separate Sunday from weekdays for every blogger? Let’s look at some more evidence…

Well, Daniel at DailyBlogTips offered us links to help grow our blogging community. The post seems to say, yes, it is Sunday–my day off. Very well…maybe Daniel will return later today with more helpful links. Afterall, they were useful.

Does Sunday mean more downtime from blogging or does it mean more substance, more bang for your virtual buck, more pizzazz?

Chris Brogan begins the day with a part in a series of posts regarding audio and video usage in your business. While the article suspends the meme of the day–Sunday is relaxing, calming, not deep blogging–I can’t help but feel it was written on a Thursday morning. It just doesn’t have the feel of a Sunday post. Good writing, though, Chris.

Chris Guthrie took the day off (so far–it is only noon CST). He did post on Saturday, regarding a contest he’s holding to give away some ad space on his site. Well, in my Sunday post I’ve just possibly set myself up with ten entries into that contest. How-you-like-that? Now that’s Sunday blogging!

I have not heard a ‘present’ from Lorelle on WordPress today. She is presumed absent as well.

Daniel Rowse, however, has posted on Monday. His exact time of posting?

That’s right. He posted at 12:01, thus making that a post for Monday, not Sunday. I cannot accept his post as a sign of the Sundays. But, of course, there was a post on the 13th, which does qualify as the Sunday post for his blog. This, eventhough, I read it clearly on Saturday afternoon.

The ProBlogger post was clearly written on a Thursday morning, alongside Chris Brogan’s diatribe. But, for this Sunday, it wins.

The Blogging Game comes to you every Sunday morning, in an attempt to choose the best post of a randomly selected group of blogs. If you would like to be included in the next Sunday’s humiliating roundup, just drop a comment and we’ll begin analyzing your Sunday post’s PH levels.

Darren Rowse is in Australia. Everything is backwards and upside down there, you know. So he can’t be blamed. And don’t forget, not all bloggers set their blog clocks – some don’t even think about it.

As for me, I just published my weekly digest and it is still Sunday my time (who jumped the gun, huh? :D ). Also, I spent much of the day commenting on other blogs. Were you just a passive bystander this Sunday? Huh?

I did in fact sit on the sideline for most of the day. But I’m still stretching and limbering up my blogging muscles. It’s great to see you stop by. I’ve really enjoyed your blog, and was less than passive when I purchased your book this afternoon. :)

I hope you’ll stop by again.

I like to see a less passive and more passionate blogger. :D

Actually I do blog a little on Sunday mornings, but for the most part that’s for family. I’m generally a Monday through Saturday blogger. If I could, I’d blog all day, every day, but I don’t want my husband to leave me.
