Sunday Confessions

Welcome to Sunday Confessions!

Four years ago, I started Sunday Confessions.  Every week, I share a prompt and on Sunday bloggers link up with  me to share their weekly confessions. The beauty is that everyone takes it in their own direction and every week I get a mix of strange, funny, sad, heartbreaking, uplifting and beautiful confessions.  It's a great writing exercise to challenge yourself to keep writing if you're stuck in a rut. It's a great way to get support from other bloggers and meet new people. I took a break from hosting Sunday Confessions last year, but I'm happy to be back and can't wait to see what you have to contribute!

If you're new or haven't participated before, welcome!

Here's how to participate:

1. Read the Prompt. I announce prompts every Wednesday via Facebook and Twitter because some confessions need a little time to marinate. Please do not share your post before Sunday.

2. Write.  Sunday Confessions is not a religious activity.  Confessions do not have to be serious, heavy, guilt-ridden, somber or contrite and if the prompt takes you someplace funny, silly, or happy...then go there. Take the prompt and write whatever comes to you whether it's a true story you want to share or a work of fiction.  Link up an Instagram post of a work of art.  All interpretations of the prompt are welcome.  All I ask is that the confession you make be your own and somehow be related to the prompt we're working on.

3. Post your words on your own blog. This is YOUR confession...write it how you want to (this is for all you sweary folk).  There is no right or wrong way to confess.

4. If you do not have a blog, you can connect with everyone who is participating in multiple ways:
  • Submit a confession anonymously via comment on my Sunday Confession
  • Link-up an Instagram post
  • Check out the other awesome bloggers participating in Sunday Confessions (links at the bottom of my post every Sunday) and comment on their blogs.
  • Please Like and Share blogs and bloggers you like!

5. Include a hyperlink in your post to direct your readers to the Sunday Confessions page so they can join in the fun too!  You can do this by copying and pasting the code for the Sunday Confessions button (below) into your blog, or including a link to my page. 

6.  Copy the permalink (url) to the specific post you want to share (not your homepage).  

7. Go to the Sunday Confession post for the week.  Click the blue "Add Your Link" button at the bottom of the post.

8. Paste your permalink/url where prompted by the pop-up window and follow the provided instructions.

9. Part of the fun is participation from everyone.  If you link up, please check out the blog of the person who linked up before you and comment on their blog.  

10. THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF SUNDAY CONFESSIONS: Have fun. And please remember when commenting on the confessions of others that they can be very the very least, please just be supportive that they are sharing if you can't agree, relate, understand or be supportive of the actual confession itself.

Any questions, feel free to email me!
