Book Blogger Confessions: Memes
An awesome meme by Tiger's All Consuming Media and For What It's Worth. Check them out!
Memes. Love em' or hate em'? How many do you participate in? Which kinds do you like best? Do you feel like there are too many?
I've been away from blogging for a long time so obviously, I haven't been too involved in memes. Even now, I kind of am trying to keep with more original-ish content.
I've done Follow Friday, Book Blogger Hop, Waiting on Wednesdays, In My Mailbox, Teaser Tuesdays, and of course, one of my favourites, Book Blogger Confessions.
Waiting on Wednesdays, Teaser Tuesdays, IMM and BBC are the kind of memes I like best. They're about books, and they have the same general idea, but they leave a lot open to bloggers so that they can put in their individuality. I don't go to blogs for memes- I go to them because each blogger has their own unique views and personality, and I want to see them talk about books in their perspective.
The only thing I kind of don't like about memes is when they're too popular. You ever look at your dashboard and notice about 15 blogs with the exact same topic? I like reading about different stuff on different blogs, and 15 teasers doesn't really interest me. That's basically my only complaint about memes.
I don't think there are too many memes. You don't need to participate in every meme, but there is a nice variety available. Rather than memes, something I really enjoy are the little features individual to every blog. Some people have a wrap up post every week, others have a post about a non bookish topic, and others have really cool discussion topics. Those are what I try to have, and what I prefer infinitely more than memes.
As always, thanks for visiting and have a great week!
