Book Blogger Confessions. (Monday, May 21, 2012)



Book Blogger Confessions is a meme hosted by Tiger from All Consuming Media and Karen from For What It's Worth Reviews to discuss issues unique to book bloggers. To find out details, click HERE.

Question for Monday May 21st: Memes. Love em or hate em? How many do you participate in? Which kinds do you like best? Do you feel like there are too many? 

Answer: Oh yeah, I love memes!  I think they are so clever.  I participate in a couple.  A few that come to mind besides this one are Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's Friday Follow, The Broke and Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday and Larissa's Bookish Life Top Five Sunday.  Not every week though because I either forget, don't have time or don't have an answer. 

I like memes that are fun, really discuss a topic, or delve into something in a quick and interesting way.  If a meme is too complicated or has too many rules, I tend not to participate. 

I don't feel like there are too many memes...if someone doesn't like them they don't have to participate.

I enjoy memes as well, in the beginning they were such a good way to "meet" other bloggers and bring traffic to the blog. I haven't had much time lately to participate, but I'm hoping to do the Friday Follow again and Top Ten Tuesdays soon. And I agree, I don't think there are too many because participation isn't required, you can just pick and choose which ones best suit you that week:)

I think choosing how many memes to participate in really depends on the person, and what they want to do with their blog. I've tried some, and then decided after a while that I wasn't as into them -- and now, I have 3 that I stick to (more or less).

I love the newer memes popping out that really require thought and discussion. Of course because of that I rarely have time to do them myself lol

I don't participate in weekly memes all the time, either--sometimes I don't have anything good to contribute. My answers to some meme questions would end up sounding like, "I love book covers, too, LOL! Especially the pretty ones!" I try to wait until a topic clicks with me, so I'm inspired to answer. :-)

I like when blogs have a mix, I have one or two memes a week I participate in and enjoy, but some blogs are just memes and no reviews (including memes where they show off all the free books they got... but then you never get to hear their opinion on it) and that's a bit annoying to me. Obviously people can blog however they want, but those I don't usually follow.
