Oh, Me..A Meme!


Hmmm..It seems that my friend, Nickel, (Then There Was Sweetthing) has tagged me for a blog Meme. The thing is, that I have no idea what that is, except what I found out by following the links to others who have been tagged, to see what they have to say.

I guess what I am supposed to do, is to tell you how my blog has evolved, and give you five posts to back up my claims. Well, I could do that, except that I don't think that I have evolved, because what I do, I think, is meander. Like the stream in that picture up there. I am all over the place, I think, from telling you some of the sad tales of my childhood, (Papa Why) to telling you about a friend's dilemma, in my grownup years,(Kool Ade or Coffee?), to expressing my thoughts about the immigration problem,( This Land Is Our Land) where I think I actually may have made an enemy, which is something that I certainly never intended to do. Oh, and then there is my interest in Native Americans, Cherokees in particular, so in my post "Two Wolves," I talked about my grandmother. Again.

I only began this blog, less than two months ago, and I have tried to do it on a daily basis, so there are sundry other posts, about one thing or another. Some are silly, and some are serious, and I never know from one day to the other, what I will post, so have I evolved? I don't know...maybe, you could tell me! At least my blog is living up to its name, in a way!

Now, I have to select others to tag, but most of those I know have been tagged, already, and I don't know that many other bloggers.

Hmmm... okay.

I tag: Michael (RFL - Gossip Galaxy), Sue (The Torn Pages), another Michael (Ripple me This), DC (Desert Cat's Paradise), and dnr ( What...?)
I sincerely hope that they will still be speaking to me after they find out!

Seems that memes are sort of a propagation of information that multiplies within a group. How these got started in the bloggerhood, I'm not sure, but I imagine someone was having a slow day. I think you have already evolved in the short time you have been blogging. You step out of your comfort zone and even though you worry about offending others, you address topics that are important to you. Just keep moving forward, you're doing a great job!

Jan said...

rockync..wow, coming from you, I take that as a real compliment!

Thanks!

I know my blogging has evolved, but I am not so sure I am not devolving. I will play, but I warn you I will cheat.

Jan said...

vin..as long as you play! LOL

sue said...

LOL... Sweet Thing got ME too... (first). Now you have to pick someone else. ;)

You have a great blog and manage to put a lot out there for only being a "baby" in blogland. Keep up the good work!

Jan said...

sue..thanks for the kind words.

"LOL... Sweet Thing got ME too... (first). Now you have to pick someone else."

In the words of another very distinguished blogger on here,"Phooey!" LOL

I knew that, but I thought you might just make it a "two-fer!" ;)

I had to go out of my "comfort" zone on four of my tags. See this is a way to expand your little blogiverse.

Jan said...

"See this is a way to expand your little blogiverse."

Maybe so, Vin, but it really makes me a little uncomfortble.

It is rather like soliciting, if it is used for the purpose of getting your name out into the "blogiverse."

Know what I mean? ;)

Who in the world thought up this stuff, anyway?

It's like a chain-letter that never stops!

Jan said...

Btw...I appreciate that Vin participated, but I won't be offended if none of the others do! :)

Livey said...

You are doing a wonderful job!

sue said...

I did it... now leave me alone. (j/k) (Doing my Olivia impersonation...ooooo...SNAP!)

Vin De Vine said...

If you don't participate we sic Thelma on you...

Jan said...

Livey..thank you for your unbiased opinion! LOL

Jan said...

sue..you rascal! LOL

Jan said...

vin..oh nooooo!!!! :o

Desert Cat said...

Chain letter, except there's no dire consequences threatened for not passing it on.

Have I evolved? Heck if I know. I was much more involved in political blogging for a while, but became disenchanted after the 2004 election. Now I'm back to it again, picking up on the conservative libertarian (but not necessarily Republican) theme. So really I haven't changed so much as I go through phases.

Still working on the meme links. Other things keep getting in the way. I'll try to have it up tomorrow.

Jan said...

DC..I've noticed, while going from blog to blog to see what they have said on the subject, that it is hard to pin down, on a personal level.

I think it is easier for others to make the call, rather than ourselves.

Jan said...

dnr..please don't worry about it.

The fact that you've acknowledged it is enough for me! :)

I finally posted my version. Thanks for making me think. I am a believer in ripples and the power in them.

Take Care
