We all love our bookish memes, right? Top 10 lists, cover reveals, teasers, freebies — the possibilities are endless! And it seems like every time I visit a new book blog, I find yet another meme to check out. I thought it might be fun — and possibly a helpful resource as well — to put together a new page here at Bookshelf Fantasies to start listing as many book blog memes as I can gather up.
First of all, what to include?
According to UrbanDictionary.com, a meme can be defined as:
in blogspeak, an idea that is spread from blog to blog
I’ve seen book bloggers use “meme” interchangeably with the concept of a “blog hop”, and that works for me!
So, for purposes of this directory, let’s include any regular ongoing features that encourage bloggers to join in, participate via comment submission or by writing their own posts, link back from their own blogs, and then visit other participants’ blogs as well.
How to add a listing?
- If you’re the host of a meme, just provide me with all the details and I’ll be glad to add you!
- If you regularly participate in a meme, give me as much information as you can, including the blog host’s link and/or contact information, and I’ll try to make contact and get permission to include them.
- If you know someone who hosts a meme, forward this post and ask them if they’d like to be listed!
Needless to say — BOOK BLOGS ONLY! I’m sure there are lots of other fun topics out there, but let’s focus on our bookish loves!
To submit a listing, fill out the info requested on the Contact page. And please leave a comment on this post to let me know what you think of the concept — good idea? pointless? helpful? other?
