I’ve taken part in a few memes in my time (please don’t judge me), which are basically chain letters, or their more developed cousin, the chain email. I’ve been trying hard not to do the current "Five Things" meme that’s been going around like wildfire.
Blogosphere meme’s are, essentially, an act of "active" SEO, a way of increasing the amount of incoming links to your blog/website through community involvement, rather than the use of strategically placed words. Yes that’s simplified but stick with me.
Up till now I’ve been "tagged" by Mitch (check out the comments for my five which I won’t repeat here), Leona, Richard, Doug and Joscelyn, my favourite PR Girl. Guys, thanks very much for the links and for thinking about me, but I’m going to have to be a grinch and pass on this one.
Memes are very self-serving and I know that if I was reading a slew of blogs all tagging each other with a pretty mindless chain and no-one was thinking about "me", I’d be pissed off. And I’m all about the inclusivity.
So, to counter that, if you’re reading this and would like to introduce yourself, please either shoot me an email or leave a comment with your "five things no-one knows about you". If you’ve been "lurking", why not jump on in and introduce yourself.
I’d be especially interested to hear from long time aussie reader, Prue Robson and a couple of other people who I can see read me through their public bloglines account. People like "manukulb", "dexxirblog" and "Chesterg1".
Doctor Jones has the best post title for this thing which is "Meme-a Mia" which fits in nicely to the Abba theme I’ve been rocking. Do not ask him for medical advice.
The miscellaneous admin is this -
How do you like the new theme I’m using – "white as milk"? It’s very clean with a lot of lovely white space and the links are now in the left hand column… which should be easier for you to read.
I’ve also (finally) gotten around to changing my employer logo to the iStudio logo.
I’m on holiday from Monday at 5:30pm. I’ll be in Calgary with the in-laws-to-be and probably doing something akin to pro-blogging for the next week.
Happy Chanukah to you all!
