Charter Members of SUNDAY SEVEN

Just a reminder that anyone who joins SUNDAY SEVEN during our first month - February 2007 - will become a charter member of this meme. Charter members are indicated on the blogroll with an asterisk before and after their names. Becoming a charter member is a one time opportunity - and the opportunity will be gone on March 1st.

Are there any benefits to being a charter member of SUNDAY SEVEN? Well . . . yes! You get the prestige of those wonderful asterisks before and after your name on the blogroll. Mostly, it's an indication of the people who have been with us from the beginning.

How to Join Sunday Seven

We've amended the guidelines for joining. Here's how to join the Sunday Seven meme:

There are no hard and fast RULES. If you want to write a Sunday Seven - then go for it. You can come back here and comment on the current week's thread so that other Sunday Seven'ers can visit you. And you're welcome to grab one of the headers from the links on the sidebar.

(1) If you want to be on the Sunday Seven blogroll, email Carol - carol (at) themedian sib (dot) com - and let her know you want to join. Provide the following information in your email: Your name, blog name, blog URL. That's it. One email, and you're in!

(2) If you want to put the blogroll on your blog, just ask Carol to send the code to you.

(3) Participate! Have fun learning more about everyone in the Sunday Seven group!

Header Graphics (From Jane)

These graphics are from Jane at Cozy Reader. They're wonderful, aren't they?


The idea for "Sunday Seven" was started by my mother, Ruth (of Ruthlace). A few years ago she began encouraging my siblings and me to write a "Sunday Seven" email about whatever was going on in our lives. The seven of us are scattered across the country, and through this weekly (sometimes) email we are able to keep up with other a little better.

It was such a simple and enjoyable format that when I started blogging in September 2005, I occasionally put my Sunday Seven as a post on my blog. I felt that a time of reflection and gratitude was a good way to end one week and begin another.

Then in February 2007, I thought of making it a meme and having other bloggers join in the fun. The inspiration for formatting the Sunday Seven blog came from Leanne at Thursday Thirteen. I have been participating in Thursday Thirteen since December 2005. It is so much fun, and I've "met" so many other bloggers through it.

I participate in other similar memes - but Thursday Thirteen was the first. So the format of having a central blog, members visiting each other's blog and commenting, having unique headers, and bringing together a community of bloggers were all inspired by Leanne's work.

There are no guidelines at Sunday Seven other than to be nice to each other and have fun. If you want to be on the blogroll, just drop me an email with your blog information.

Week #1 - Sunday Seven, February 4, 2007

Here's the call for this weekend's SUNDAY SEVEN. Write seven things you are thankful for from the past week. You can also write about 7 things that happened to you the past week or seven things you're looking forward to the next week. Really, just seven comments about the week. Come back here and leave your name and URL in the comment section.

Let's see how quickly we can get this meme going. It will be a great way to end one week and begin another - with thankfulness and recognition.

The people who join during FEBRUARY will be CHARTER MEMBERS of the SUNDAY SEVEN meme!

You can go to blenza (dot) com where Mr. Linky will set you up with widgets for visitors and comments to your SUNDAY SEVEN.

SUNDAY SEVEN will officially open each weekend - usually on Saturday afternoon/evening.

Call for graphics

If you have a talent for creating graphics and would like to make some "Sunday Seven" graphics, have at it! Send your graphics to carol (at) themediansib (dot) com, and I'll post them here for other Sunday Seven'ers to use.
