Sun-Yay!™ 30th June 2019

Yes, you read correctly. Inky is NOT the only one who can do ‘day-yays’ around here. I mean, this is totally MY idea. Mine.

The deal is that every Sunday, I’ll post a Sun-Yay!™. If I don’t it might be because I’m away, grounded, sick, couldn’t be bothered or dead. Probably the third option.

In a Sun-Yay!™, I may include… (scroll for more on each)

memes (need I say more?)

Inky Wars chapters

news stories

playlists

book recommendations

Japanese word of the Sun-Yay!™

and more…

If that sounds like your delicious, steaming hot mug of matcha tea, then honey, you are at the right blog.

If not…

WHAT IS ‘Inky Wars’?

Well, you know that ongoing joke on Inside a Dog about fighting to the death over picking the Inky Awards Shortlist? Yeah, that’s what ‘Inky Wars’ is. It’s a fictional story, written by yours truly, that will feature all of the 2019 Inky Judges, Shadow Judges and cameos from other users of the site (if you’d like!). I’ll take any ideas or suggestions, and when I finish a chapter it’ll be tacked onto the end of the next Sun-Yay!™.

WHAT ‘News Stories’?

Only the most important news stories in our modern day society will make it into a Sun-Yay!™ ‘online newspaper’. If something happens in your life like you get to interview an author or celebrity, you got a new pet goldfish, or you’d like to tell everyone about a special day that’s coming up (birthdays, etc.) then you can email me at insideadog@slv.vic.gov.au And Inky, will forward it to me and I will write up a super professional-looking newspaper article to post in the next Sun-Yay!™, but get in quick! Only one or two articles will make it in.

Other news stories may include links to other news articles that I might find interesting. Things like achievements in science, music (k-pop fans where you at) and entertainment industries could be put in a Sun-Yay!™ post for your enjoyment.

WHAT ‘Playlists’?

In a playlist that will be posted in a Sun-Yay!™ post, the best songs from playlists posted by you, the users, will be added to a special Sun-Yay!™ Playlist. These songs can be any language, genre or artist, as long as the song is clean/has a clean version. Inky shall not have my head over posting a curse-ridden rap song in a Sun-Yay!™ Playlist. And who knows, maybe the Sun-Yay!™ Playlist will end up on Spotify?

WHAT ‘Book Recommendations’?

Are you an avid reader? Well, of course! Otherwise you probably wouldn’t be here. If you scroll through your feed, you may see an assortment of book recommendations from many different people. What if these were all collected into one compact post? Wouldn’t that be so convenient?! I’m not saying “STOP POSTING RECOMMENDATIONS”, but I’m encouraging more recommendations so I can put the URL into a Sun-Yay!™ post and if people are interested, they can click and read through the recommendation!

WHAT IS ‘Japanese Word of the Sun-Yay!™’?

It’s exactly as the title says it is. I’ll put a Japanese word into each Sun-Yay!™ because some words in Japanese are so beautiful, yet there’s no English word for them. And you don’t have to speak Japanese, because I’ll put how it sounds in English, too!


If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to comment and ask.

I hope I’ll see you next Sun-Yay!™

This sounds brilliant!! But I think I need an explanation for what 'memes' are. Some kind of French food? (kidding.)
