In the midst of all the advice given, I also learned something new that I had to look up. I did not realize that the term “meme” had more than one meaning. When I said Meme Mondays before, I was specifically referring to Internet memes, which Wikipedia defines as “an activity, concept, catchphrase or piece of media which spreads, often as mimicry, from person to person via the Internet.” I was thinking of using some of those memes and making a few remarks about them, and I found out Barbara does something similar in posts she calls I Saw It on Facebook. The other meaning of “meme” is “an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/meme). In the world of blogging, it seems that memes are repeatable posting ideas that are shared amongst multiple blogs; I was even told about some memes that occur on Mondays. In fact, I’ve seen recurring ideas designated for each day of the week.
There are so many interesting ideas, that I’m not sure where to start! So, probably for most of the summer, I will be testing some of these ideas out and see which ones fit well for me. I hope to post once a week and maybe throw in an extra post here and there. Since I’m trying out different things, I won’t be posting on the same day each week, but I hope to eventually find a pattern that works well. Also, I will still be writing my regular life lessons and scripture-based posts at least once during the month; with all the changes and additions, I still want to stick to my original intent in starting this blog. I hope everyone enjoys as I continue into a new phase of my journey in writing and have a safe and pleasant Memorial Day weekend!
