  3. I am thinking of resuscitating a meme that was around since 2007 and died last summer bc the host had personal issues and basically stopped blogging. I’ve tried getting in touch w her to ask, but I get no response, although I know she’s out there. It has nothing to do w books. It was called Vintage Thingies Thursday. I’m making it a goal to get a response this week.

  4. What a timely post!! I’m starting my own meme next month 🙂 I hadn’t originally conceived of what I’m going to do as meme, but I think it would be fun to invite others to join in if they’re interested. Thanks for the tips.

  5. Thanks for putting this together.

    I use InLinkz (free version) for the 2 memes/readalongs that I host each year (AusReading Month in Nov and the Wharton Review in May).
    It has been fine for both of these. It allows me to tweek dates and set up options as the month progresses.

    I always appreciate you twitter prompts for British Isles Friday & I hope when life stuff settles down I can get back into my regular (old) blogging routine again 🙂

    Great post – very useful Joy.

  6. Great post! I’m not Bloggiesta-ing this time around, but hope to do a lot of visiting. I’m not ready to host a meme, but these are great tips for if I ever do!

  7. Hi Joy,
    Thanks for the awesome post! I’ve been thinking about resurrecting my fairytale feature and even had it on my list for bloggiesta but never thought of doing it as a meme until I read your post. I also had no idea that there was a master list of memes. I’ve bookmarked it to come back to when I have more time as I’d love to start getting more involved with them. Meanwhile (and I hope you don’t mind my adding this link!) I’ve posted asking for people’s thoughts about a fairytale meme here

    Thanks again!

    • Yes! I’m hoping people will leave links to their meme ideas this week so we can all offer input on them. Thanks!

  8. Wonderful post–clipping it to Pocket so I can come back and read it tonight (when I am not working). 🙂 It is on my radar to work on a Meme (for my own interest, perhaps others want to join me too) so the master list is fabulous to have.

    Happy Reading!

  9. This is a great post; I’m bookmarking it so I can find it again. I participate in several memes myself (Sunday Post and Top Ten Tuesday on a fairly regular basis, Tough Travels on an occasional basis, and once in a while Waiting on Wednesday) and I’ve sometimes thought about starting one, so this is invaluable advice.

    And I plan to check out your British Isles Friday meme, as I am a huge Anglophile!

    • Woohoo! I’m looking forward to it. That’s coming up fast! I’ll have to get a post started. It will be easier next month when I can think about it all month.

  10. Joy,

    Thank you for this mini-challenge.

    After all week, I finally came up with an idea for a meme that I’m actually excited about. I’m not going to go into a lot of details because I’m still at Toe Dipper stage, but it will involve a fun way to promote multicultural children’s books. There’s someone who I think would make a wonderful co-sponsor, so I’m going to get in touch with her soon.

    Enjoy the rest of Bloggiesta!
