I am new to the blogging world and realized there are endless possibilities just yet to be discovered. One of the things I learned from Su-Ti [Short version translation: Kungfu version of a mentor] IcyBC is to participate in memes. It is one of the ways to bring out your creativity and such a great way to get to know other bloggers.
Aside from what IcyBC has taught me, I did some surfing and researching for memes. I found many, some are still live and kicking some are not as active and updated. My search criteria were memes that are light-heart, easy to participate and weekly. Secondly, I need to know that the host has made an effort on their blog to welcome new participants and posted directions that made sense. So I've rounded up a few that I've personally participated in for Self Sagacity and my family website Blessing Reflections and that fit all my criteria- which isn't tough. I also came to the conclusion that while there might be many good ones out there still to be found, but for new bloggers, the list below is a quick start which would save a lot of time digging around the internet.
Below are some memes by the order of the day of the week that you should check out.
Mosaic Monday: Mosaic
Mellow Yellow Monday: Yellow
Ruby Tuesday: Red
Thursday Sepia Scenes: Sepia
Wordless Wednesday: Speechless
Watery Wednesday: Water
Friday Sky Watch: Sky
Foodie Friday: Food
Saturday Pink: Pinkness
Today's Flowers: Sunday Flowers
Scenic Sunday: Scenes
Shadow Shot Sunday: Shadow photos
I appreciate all these hosts, who spent time and efforts in hosting these memes and visiting their participants. The world is a huge place and it is a joy to be able to find others with the same interests. Contrary to my previous sentence, the internet has made the world reachable for these groups of people to come together to share knowledge, experience, tastes and stories. I am happy to be able to take part in these wonderful groups.
This article is written based on my own experience and taste and not a paid review. The internet is a huge place, there are of what might be 20 million plus websites. I am sure there are intriguing memes yet to be discovered. So I will post this date as January 2010, and come back in six months or so to see what else I've learned.
