So I’ve (finally) been following a meme (define) run through the blogosphere - the ‘Five Things’ meme that’s (apparently) become so passe that now we have people blogging ‘Five Things We Don’t Know’ aboutÂ dogs… and some people have been tagged so many times, they’re asking readers to submit questions they’ll answer - although most questions were so unbelievable I’m grateful for the relative anonymity of my readers’ curiousity…
What if there’s a meme and no one tags you?Â
Well, if you’re like me, you just write about it anyway, and thank the person responsible for the first instance of your discovery. (Thanks Tamera!)
How did I find out about this meme?Â Tamera commented on one of my posts.Â And, as I’ve told people in every presentation I’ve ever made about blogging, it’s human nature to wonder who took the time to comment?Â
So I followed the link in her comment.Â I’m pretty sure she came to me through my friend Michael O’Connor-Clarke, being that she’s in PR and from Toronto, two things they have in common.Â
Regardless, I’ve made a new connection, and now I know things about people in the world that just perhaps, I didn’t want to know.Â There are all sorts of reasons you just don’t need to tell everything about yourself.
