This should really be called the Procrastination Page, because I’m creating it to avoid attacking any one of the growing number of memes and tags I’ve collected over the last few months. I even went so far as to create my own in order to deflect some heat.
I’m feeling the need to tidy up my blog a bit, so this is where I’ll be keeping my memes…it feels good to know they’ll have their own divider in my virtual ringbinder.
For anyone who may not know, a meme (pronounced as in theme- and if you’re going to argue that point, check this) is essentially a bit of fun. It’s a great way of connecting with different bloggers, useful for inspiration and content when blogging mojo is thin on the ground and often a diversion from your ‘normal’ blog content. Memes and awards should never be a stress; it’s ok to say no thanks, it’s fine to not get around to it, it should NEVER be something to worry about.
I say this as someone who has at least 11 unwritten memes pending. If someone is lovely enough to tag me, I really appreciate it and I hope they realise that my lax attitude is not a slight, or any kind of insult…..just a true reflection of a busy life where blogging can’t always come first *sob*.
If you’re a new (or established) blogger, feel free to consider yourself tagged on any memes that appear here….they are there to be shared. Also, don’t forget there are no rules for who can create a meme- if you have an idea, just do it!
Edited October 2010 to say:
You’ll notice that nothing else has appeared here. That serves only to prove how truly rubbish I am at completing memes….
