Normally when you are writing a blog you begin with, for instance:

27 January 2014, Amsterdam (for instance)

However, I don't feel like writing down the city-name, so is:

27 January 2014, Earth

Good as well?

Or should it be:

27 January 2014, on earth

Or should it be 'written on earth'

    Take a look at the threads at the bottom of this page: date format They will provide you with all the information you will ever need regarding the format used in writing dates.

    I'm not asking for information regarding dates, i'm wondering if writing 'earth' behind the date is correct or not?

    I sure don't care how you write "earth" in that date line, Jezus9. It will mean the same thing whether you use "on earth", "Earth", "the blue planet with lots of water" or whatever else you come up with.

    If you want to use it as a place name in the same way that you'd have written "Amsterdam" in your blog, then you'd do it as "Earth". :)
