Meme Madness

by Maureen McCabe on February 8, 2008

I just got memed again… “I am challenging you to post 7 interesting things about yourself. ” wrote Wayne Long of (Columbus Georgia) Donna and Wayne Long’s meme post:

7 Interesting Things about Donna and Wayne

Sorry Wayne and Donna, my 7 things may not be interesting… I am just doing a rerun of the meme post I did just Tuesday for Lola Audu of Grand Rapids Michigan…

Curses Memed Again a synopsis:

1. I was the office Mardi Gras Queen in 2006

2. I and good at games

3. I can’t play guitar

4. I don’t eat wheat… officially

5. I cheat and eat wheat…

6. I’ve lived in a number of spots in the mid-west previously.

7. A Rose by any other name…

There are links to most of the memes I’ve been tagged with on the post Tuesday.  There are links to the bloggers I tagged this time too. I tagged mostly Columbus bloggers …

I tagged Bonnie Erickson one of my first blogging buddies and she’s done her meme too…

What is a meme? Joseph Ferrara on Sellsius°Real Estate Blog defined meme:

“A meme (rhymes with dream) is a catch phrase representing a contagious idea that spreads virally in a culture, like transparency, Web 2.0, Long Tail or maybe unzillowable. The word comes from the Greek meaning “mimic”. In the blogosphere, it’s a game of topic tag. You answer the topic question and pass it on to others to do the same. “

Or say “thanks for thinking of me … but me and my blog are done with memes for a bit…”

I should have known you guys were getting run over with meme requests as popular bloggers as you are. I appreciate you playing along anyway.

Thanks for thinking of me. I don’t know about popular. Connected to bloggers is probably more like it. In the three layers of memes before me I could see people who were memed by multiple bloggers… I went with local people partly because of that…

And to try to change the direction of the meme… I get tired of real estate bloggers (especially those on ActiveRain Real Estate network) thinking it is a MeMe and not gettting the whole meme thing which is so much more important to understanding web 2.0…
