I received this in my email today.
Greetings! You’ve just been MEMED on Active Rain!
“WHAT?” you say? Go to this post:
and make a comment telling us “What 5 Things You don’t Know About Me”. OR, put it on your “other blog”, but please put a link to it in the comments of the AR Meme Post (link just above here).
Then contact 3 other Active Rainers and meme them!
Just do it. It’s fun!
Curious I did it. Basically a chain letter by email. Evidentially is was started by Mary McKnight who is a awesome blogger on this site and others.
The bounteous, beautiful, bubbly, blog goddess Mary McKnight posted today that she’d been “memed”.
What the heck is a “meme”? We’ll let Mary explain. She’s good:
I was memed this morning by my friend and competitor, Paul Chaney of Blogging Systems. For those of you that don’t know what a meme is: It’s a thought stream carried from one person to another, or, to be more precise, a “unit of cultural information transferable from one mind to the other,” so says Wikipedia. Basically, it’s the blogging equivalent of a chain letter. The cool thing about blogging is that the meme can be tracked. Entire websites are devoted to doing just that. Some memes, however, are deliberate…sort of a social game to build community and engender relationships. (Jay’s emphasis)
