I’ve been Mimmed ??

 

You’ve Been Memmed

I received this in my email today.

Greetings! You’ve just been MEMED on Active Rain!

“WHAT?” you say? Go to this post:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/27305/The-First-ActiveRain-Meme.

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)
