ControverSunday Mission Statement

ControverSunday is a collaborative blog meme, whereby the goal is to share, discuss and hear out different perspectives on parenting, society and other stuff that matters. All those who participate bring to the table a unique perspective and approach others with mutual respect. Participating is a way to build community, to learn something and to reflect and evaluate our own choices.


Welcome to a little thing called ControverSunday. This blog meme was envisioned and started by Perpetua over at Our Lady of Perpetual Bread Crumbs. She, along with the amazing designer of our official ControverSunday badge, Accidents, got the ball rolling.

When Perpetua decided to take a bloggy break, I took over the reins. At least until Perpetua makes her triumphant bloggy return. (Update, she has. But for now I am continuing to host ControverSunday until she wants it back.) As such, this page is meant to be your official guide to ControverSunday.

We have played with a couple different formats in terms of how often we do this thing, ect.

How to play along

ControverSunday happens on the first Sunday of every month.

I (or who ever would like to guest host) posts the topic for the next ControverSunday the Monday after each round of ControverSunday. That is the key people- write your post WAY ahead of time and then just schedule it for Sunday morning.

While I am not a hard ass enough to be uber strict with the posting date, PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE post on Sunday, preferably Sunday morning. This will avoid that ‘but everything I was going to say has already been said’ feeling.

Then everyone is welcome to write a “ControverSunday” post with their thoughts on the topic. You write, you add the badge to your post, and then you go visit the host to give them your link so they can add you to the offical ControverSunday ‘reading list’ for that week. Voila, you have ControverSunday. What makes it really fun is when everyone goes around reading everyone elses posts and sharing their thoughts. Hence the conversation.

Lastly, everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never played before. (We love newbies!)
