Blog Hop: Around the Blogosphere

book blogger hopThis week’s Book Blogger Hop question is more about blogging than reading: What weekly memes do you follow on a regular basis?

To begin, a vocabulary note–as far as I can tell “meme” has two meanings (non-technical ones, anyway).  First, a photo/comic/video/random joke that goes floating around the internet, and if that’s what’s meant, I’d have to just say George Takei and leave it at that.  But I’m pretty sure the second definition is meant, as in a regular blogging event where bloggers all post on the same topic on the same day of the week, and share the posts on a hosting site.  So going by that definition…

There’s the Friday Blogger Hop, obviously, which provides me some fun ideas of different book or blogging topics to write about.

The Saturday Snapshot goes up most Saturday mornings, a meme focused on sharing a photograph (or several).  This one isn’t about books, though it seems like a lot of book bloggers participate, and I usually try to give my photos a literary spin.

What Are You Reading? is a very aptly-named meme inviting bloggers to share their reading plans for the coming week(s).  I usually post for this one once or twice a month.  Officially it’s supposed to be a Monday meme, but I post on Sunday, since my personal blogging schedule calls for a review Monday, and I don’t want to flood people with two posts in one day (it would be a small flood, I guess…but you know what I mean).

Hmm…my memes seem to be rather centered around the weekend, aren’t they?  I hadn’t thought of that before.

Your turn!  What are your favorite memes?  Any I should check out?

  1. The only meme I regularly take part in is the monthly questions for The Classics Club. I don’t tend to like those that tie me down to a post every week. I do love your Saturday Snapshot posts though 🙂

  2. I enjoy your Saturday Snapshots! I just put up my first Book Blogger Hop post. I think I’ll do it on an occasional basis, not necessarily every week. I’m already doing two other memes, both somewhat time consuming (at least the way I like to do them! )

  3. I also do the FF Friday post over at Parajunkee’s View. Check out my answer at Daily Mayo!
