Sunday Setlists, #1 (a new Blog Carnival)
(yes, this is the Sunday Surprise, so join in!)
Recently, I’ve been introduced to a few sites using a technique called the “Blog Carnival” to build community on their blogs. The “blog carnival” helps the blogger (with incoming links) and the participants (with outgoing links and exposure) as a result of participating. Some of the blog carnivals I’ve participated in include the “Watercooler Wednesday” with Randy Elrod and “Creative Chaos” with RagamuffinSoul.com.
After making lots of new friends, bloggers, twitters, and bringing quite a few new subscribers on board, I thought it would be fun to pull everyone together weekly for a blog carnival called “Sunday Setlists”.
Choosing a topic such as “setlists” greatly reduces the number of people who can participate in the carnival … I realize that, but I’ve chosen this topic because it’s of genuine interest to me. I really enjoy seeing what other people are singing in their churches, and I think most of you enjoy it as well. By having everyone link on “Mr. Linky” it will be easy to visit other’s blogs and see their “Sunday Setlists”.
Each Sunday, I’ll post a recap of our Sunday Setlist. It may be a Worship Confessional video or a “textfessional” (a written setlist). You are encouraged to do the same thing. As a matter of fact, if your worship pastor doesn’t blog, feel free to post a recap for your church .. you don’t have to be the leader!
1. Post your blog entry with your Sunday Setlist recap.
2. In your blog, you should link back to this post (the most current Sunday Setlist) and indicate that you are posting your setlist as part of the “Sunday Setlists” theme. Feel free to copy and paste this description:
“This week’s recap of songs is posted in collaboration with other worship leaders on the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival at www.fredmckinnon.com”.
3. After posting your blog, fill out the “Mr. Linky” form below, with your name, and the URL to your “Sunday Setlist” blog entry. (please don’t just link to your blog’s homepage, or the link will be deleted – the idea is that we can all easily click over and see your setlist).
4. Leave a comment below letting us know you’re participating.
I think this will be a lot of fun … so many of us are already posting our weekly setlists, and this is a way to allow everyone else to see each other’s setlist posts easily. Got questions? Just leave a comment below.

Ok, so post your setlist, link back to this post as part of the “Sunday Setlists” group, and then include your name and link back to your Sunday Setlists post in the Mister Linky below.
Then, come back and see everyone’s setlists as it grows.
This “Sunday Setlists” is now closed – below are the links to other worshiper leader’s and church attender’s Worship Confessionals, Textfessionals, and recaps:
