Community Network Meme (mimic blogging)

NOTE: This is copied thru CARL DORSEY’s website: Iron Cook: American and the original post from TOM BAKER’s website: Morning Erection. I already drafted my answers to this mimic blogging and hopefully will be posted on 12th December. Thanks to SundayStealing website for featuring Tom Baker’s Meme thru my post. Im glad that SundayStealing shared to its fans and so far Ive read some of their responses.

CREATING A POST EVERY DAY, every other day or even once a week can be a daunting task. We are being pulled in many directions by friends and family, work, stress, fatigue, school, children, writer’s block, fear and the list goes on. Everyone who blogs has their own network of people who have visited and sometimes commented. That is your network, your personal blogging community.

Most times a blogger’s personal community of visitors and commentary stick to their own network. That means they do not interact with the personal community of other bloggers. In other words the people who visit your blog will not visit my blog just because you do. People coming to your blog will not necessarily visit the sites on your blogroll. So, everyone has their separate little network.

I’m not trying to change that, it’s just a fact of life that there are cliques even in the blogging community. What I was thinking though, is a community blog post. Before you click out of this post thinking I’m crazy, here me out… I just learned that there is a name to what I am proposing. It’s called a meme, (pronounced ‘meem)’. A meme is contagious content that spreads quickly throughout the Internet and gets the attention of many web users especially on social networks like Facebook. As a matter of fact, a meme spread through Facebook last year. Females were posting the color of the bra and panties and none of us males had any idea what the colors meant. Some of us guys are still without an idea!

I want with your help, to create “meme-like” content passed on from one blogger to another blogger. The difference is I want this planned ahead of time so that as many bloggers who want to participate, can do so; all of us on the same day and time. The numbers could be in the thousands if everyone on your blogroll takes part, and everyone on their blogroll, and so on and so on.

Suppose I asked five bloggers to participate in a community post where we all came together to answer a questionnaire. You have ten bloggers that regularly visit your blog and you ask them to participate as well. They in turn ask their friends and visitors and so on and so on.

What we would need is a group of questions, a set day to post the comment and a cumulative list of all the blogs that are willing to participate. Everyone schedules the post for that day and time and there is a potential for hundreds if not thousands of new visitors for every blog on the list. New visitors, new readers and potentially new friends. I have chosen December 12th as the date because it is far enough away for all who want to participate, to do so and it gives you the ability to get your answers finished.

If you think this is worthwhile or just a fun idea, just repost this onto your blog as soon as possible in it’s entirety. Email everyone you know who has a blog and might also be interested in this. Ask each person who is a firm commitment to add their name and blog’s name to the master list. Everyone will need to include the list in it’s entirety to their post so everyone will have the same list on their site and everyone has an equal chance at exposure.

RULES OF PARTICIPATION

You must agree to the Community Network MeMe date which is December 12, 2010 at 12:01. You must agree that on December 12th you will visit at least five blog links that you have never visited before and leave a comment on their responses (my site, Iron Cook: American, not included). Replace my site with your site.
You must answer each of the ten questions and with more than a simple yes or no response. You must post the entire Master Meme Blog List of blogs participating regardless of how long the list may grow to be below your answered questions. (Please continuously update the list). You must title your post the same as everyone else, “Community Network Meme”. You must promote the Community Network Meme at least once on Facebook or some other form of social media, even if it is just your own blog to get even more bloggers to participate. Provide the link back to your original post so they can post this in its entirety, just like we did. If you would like to participate and write the post in your language and not English, feel free to translate it or you could post both translations. Make sure to either vote for or like the post appropriately.

  3. Hi Reymos-

    You don’t to explain a meme to me. I’m Judd Corizan from the blog Sunday Stealing. Every week we rip a meme off someone’s blog. Today we chose yours. We give you full credit and link back to your blog. The great thing is that a lot of previous “victims” such as yourself have become regular players! We usually publish the blog between 1 and 3 PM EST Saturday. We usually get between 40 to 60 people who play and comment on each others responses. And a lot of our players are previous victims of our theft like you! We hope you play along in the weeks to come! Thank you and have a great day…

    • Hi Judd, thanks for visiting my blog and of course having my meme post be part of your SundayStealing project. Indeed, it is a great opportunity for me to be featured in your blogsite to create additional traffic to my site. Unfortunately, your link for your blogsite is not working, but luckily I was able to find out what’s the problem of the site. It should be written as: http://www.sundaystealing.blogspot.com. I found out there are interesting meme posts that are interesting too!
