I love a good meme! A meme is a weekly (or monthly) blog prompt. The hosting blogger will post the topic, then other bloggers write about (or share photos about) the topic and put their post in the host’s linky. Then, all the participants hop around to each other’s posts and comment. Not only do you make new friends, you gain new readers! Plus, if the meme is a topic you really love then you can have a ton of fun hopping around to the other blogs too.
Also? A blog meme sure gives you something to write when you are staring at a blank screen.
I did my best to compile a list of weekly blog memes. I know I missed some. If I did, please put the name of the meme in the linky below with a link to the host blog. (if you host a meme, list it here!)
Note: a meme is not a blog hop or giveaway linky. A meme is something others write about and link up to. A blog hop is often a “you follow me-I follow you” type of thing and a giveaway linky is a place to list your giveaways. Today I am talking about memes, but if you want a directory full of both hops and memes, check out the Socialpreneurs page.
