The Meme About Memes & Blogging

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find both traditional and unique memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to either make it more relevant to our global players, or make it less repetitive.

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger called Barbara H. who writes the blog named Stray Thoughts. Barbara H. actually wrote the meme. So, we have a "fresh theft". She said in her original intro to this meme that its purpose was for fellow bloggers to get to know one another a bit better. She tried to come up with meme questions that she had never seen before. So, this meme was not "probably stolen at some other blog as well". Link back to us at Sunday Stealing! If you’d like to be listed in our Judd's Links, just leave us a comment. And, of course, add us to your links as well. (If you are a victim of our theft, we add you automatically under "Previous Victims".)

Sunday Stealing: The Meme About Memes & Blogging

How do you feel about being tagged for memes?

Do you participate in any regular weekly memes? Which ones?

Have you found any bloggers that you began to read regularly after participating in a meme with them?

Do you know of any readers who found you through a meme and became regular readers?

Did you find any favorite blogs through comments or blogrolls on others’ blogs?

Did you find any favorite blogs from someone else’s recommendation?

If you comment on someone’s blog, do you expect a response? If so, do you prefer that response to come through an e-mail, a comment from them on the same post, or a a comment on your blog?

Do you ever struggle with your blogging “voice”?

Are there certain types of blogs that attract you?

Are there certain types of blogs that repel you?

What time of day do you usually blog?

Do your family and friends know about your blog? Do they read it? Do they mind if you mention them? Do they suggest posts for it?

Okay, here is my contribution to the meme-steal. My answers to this particular meme were packaged along with two other memes. Wander over and have a look, and feel free to steal them if you think they're worthy.
