What Bloggers Do On Sunday

 What Bloggers Do On Sunday

It’s not all work 7 days a week for affiliate marketers and bloggers, we have to do something different at least 1 day a week, if not more.

Well, the picture above is my usual seat for most of Sunday morning and into a few minutes of the afternoon. I play drums for the praise band at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Palm Bay, FL which I’ve been doing for the last 5 years or so. The morning starts with a bit of personal practice at 8:30 and then group practice at 9:15. The service starts at 10:30 and we play about 15 minutes of music in the first set (if you want to call it that) and then we do a couple of tunes after the sermon and then get to jam a little during the postlude.

I’ve been playing drums for many years (more than I care to count) and have played several different styles including country, rock, a wee bit of jazz, southern rock and roll and now Christian music. The groups I’ve done copy tunes on cover a wide variety including, Rush, The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, Pink Floyd, ZZ Top, Kansas, Oak Ridge Boys, Hank Williams Jr, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Santana, The Police and many others. My favorites have been some of the older Rush tunes such as YYZ, Limelight, Tom Sawyer and Spirit Of The Radio along with Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas.

After church on Sunday is a complete slow down for my wife and I. We usually get home around 12:30 if we don’t go out to lunch. We have a lite lunch and then comes the best part of the week for me, reading, coffee, cookies and nap time. I make killer strong decaf coffee (3 scoops for 3 cups) and add cocoa powder, unrefined sugar, enough half and half to make it a nice rich brown color and sometimes either a shot of Kahlua or Amaretto. We special order our cookies from the Alternative Baking Cookie Company that makes 100% vegan cookies. My favorite cookie is the Double Chocolate Decadence and it is the best chocolate chip cookie in the world. If I have to skip a week without one of these cookies, I go nuts (not really).

After reading and cookies, it’s time for a nice 1 to 1.5 hour nap, sometimes 2 hours if I feeling a bit lazy.

That’s what we do to recharge our batteries to get ready for the coming week. What do you do on Sunday or your day off to prepare for your money making web ventures for another week?

  1. So far, my day off occurs just before I burnout. If I let it get to burnout stage, I’m out for at least a week. When I choose to take off, it’s generally for two days, and I sit and watch movies, watch BBC America, read (either magazines or novels), and often do large amounts of cooking or baking.

    If I don’t do something productive during my time off, I find it much more difficult to get back into the swing of things since I’m naturally lazy at heart. But I try to make those “productive” things, things that directly benefit my husband (such as the cooking and baking) or things that will help me when I get back to work.

    (BTW, just finished the basic part of my third BANS store- which I purchased Friday)

  2. Congrats on moving ahead with BANS. That’s the way to do it, keep building your empire of niche stores!

  3. Rock it out on a Sunday & eat cookies? True dat!

  4. Well, for me I haven’t found any down time yet. I work e/o weekend and have off a night during the week, so me and hubby usually rent a movie and have our dinner and a movie night together since the kids are all grown. I try real hard not to get on the computer that night, but usually fail. I’m very new to affiliate marketing so I’m trying to learn all I can whenever I have free time. I finally did get a blog going on a subject I am passionate about and I have 2 comments so far. There’s alot I don’t understand but each day I do pick up alittle more. I’m glad I found this site because it is very interesting.

  5. Wow – seems like I have the complete opposite many Sundays. I play in a classic rock band and we usually play Fri/Sat or Sat 10pm-2am, which brings me home about 3:30-4am on average. So on Sunday I usually get up between 11:30-12:30 and lazy away the rest of the day catching up on web site work and uploading pics from the previous nights show!

  6. Terri, stick with your efforts, they will pay off in time.

    JTPratt, That used to be me. Just a different time at a different stage in life. I enjoyed my classic rock days.

  7. I missed jamming sessions.

    My guitars collected a thick layer of dust ever since I started blogging.
