In case you don't know what I mean by being tagged:
I am not referring to being microchipped like a pet dog or being bookmarked on del.icio.us. What I do mean is that I have been challenged to take part in a couple of 'group writing projects'/ blog memes.
The wikipedia definition of a meme is a "unit of cultural information" which can propagate from one mind to another in a manner analogous to genes". My definition in relation to blogging is: "something you inherit from a blogger you know and pass on to other bloggers.
What reasons are there to join in memes?
- They can be be just plain fun.
- They can be funny
- They can be inspiring.
- They can help bloggers get to know each other better.
- They can help your contacts, friend, family increase readership to their blogs.
