Today’s question is only marginally about LibraryThing but I thought it might be a fun question anyway. It’s more about blogging. Everyone who participates in Tuesday Thingers has a blog- some have a book blog, some have several, some have blogs that are more personal, etc.- and we’ve all chosen to participate in this particular way of networking to build traffic, get to know each other, etc. So my question is: what other weekly memes or round robins do you participate in? Is this the only one? Why Tuesday Thingers and not some other weekly Tuesday meme? Or do you do more than one?
Nice question, Marie!
Like many respondents, I participate in three weekly memes: Tuesday Thingers (although I’m still not crazy about that name…), Booking Through Thursday, and Sunday Salon. As others have said, I enjoy doing these memes for a couple of reasons. For one, they help me keep book/reading related posts coming nearly every day of the week. In addition, they help me find other bloggers, and other bloggers find me.
Three is definitely my limit, though. If I find another meme I just can’t live without, I’m going to have to drop one of the ones I already do. Although it is nice to have ideas for new content, I absolutely do not want to have the majority of my content be meme-related. I really don’t consider Sunday Salon to be a true meme, since the idea is to talk about whatever reading-related activity is going on in your life, but the only reason that I do both Tuesday Thingers and Booking Through Thursday is that I read enough to generally have at least two reviews come out in a week as well.
