What is a Meme Anyway?


Recently I’ve had a few fellow blogger friends and Etsy artists write meme’s and include me or send me "One Lovely Blog" awards. The One Lovely Blog award is easily understood, right? Thanks ladies! But what exactly is a “meme”, you ask? I asked the same question! So I found this to explain it. Clear as mud? Anywho, it’s a basically a sweet little way for someone to share your blog with others. As part of the sharing you’re asked to share seven unknown things about yourself and then share the love with seven other bloggers. So, in interest of fairplay, many thanks to Cristi, Dawn, Jana, and Roia for sending me a little blog love. And as for seven unknown things about me (that weren’t already mentioned here)…..hmmm…

1. I often develop little obsessions. Lately I’ve gone through a button obsession, and now I’m on a vintage postcard obsession. The one pictured here really caught my attention because…

2. I visited Spook Hill as a child! I remember it so clearly! It was so incredibly cool, particularly to a six year old! This postcard gives one story. This link gives another “official” story. Now, I will say the postcard is older than the “official” story, so I wonder if political correctness came into play here. Hmm…

3. My great Aunt Livy and I are the only lefties in our family. She’ll be 88 in August. She’s fabulous.

4. I have a great weakness for Barnaby’s pizza in Tallahassee. I MUST go there every time I visit Tallahassee. Sometimes I’ve been known to come up with an excuse to go to Tallahassee JUST to go to Barnaby’s.

5. I also have a great weakness for Burger King. I usually try to stay away from roads on which I know the King resides (surprisingly, I’m not overweight!). Something about those flame-broiled burgers…

6. I graduated from high school with two of my DH’s cousins. My sister graduated from high school with one of my DH’s cousins. We discovered this during a Christmas family gathering early on in our relationship. Kim and I grew up in Orange Park. My DH grew up on the northside of Jacksonville, far away from Orange Park. Strange coincidence, huh?

7. I now work on the same campus from which I graduated from college with my associates degree. My DH helped build the very same campus (yeah, we have a lot of those strange coincidences).

So there you have it! Now go take a peek at some of my bloggity favorites…Marisa, Karen, Andi, Fannie, Cathy, Terri and Nina.
