Lessons on Blogging Meme
Throughout the Lessons on Blogging series, I’ve discussed concepts and principles that popular TV shows teach about blogging. The series has been very well received, with several posts becoming popular on several social media sites and attracting several new incoming links. At the end of each post I mention that I haven’t covered all of the possible lessons from each show and without fail, I receive several comments with other suggestions and lessons I missed. Earlier today I noticed a new link to my latest installment M*A*S*H: Lessons on Blogging. As it turns out, Steven Bradley is also a big fan of the show and wrote a post of his own with a whole new set of blogging lessons.
And then the idea hit me, a Lessons on Blogging Meme!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with memes, allow me to explain. The person starting the meme (in this case me) writes a post and then tags other people to follow suit. The tagged bloggers then write a post of their own in the same theme as the original and tag even more people and so on. I’ve never been a big fan of memes just for the sake of memes but I hope this one will end up being useful and well worth reading.
The rules of this one are going to be simple; I’ll tag 5 people asking them to post one lesson bloggers can learn from their favorite TV show. Each person then tags another 5 people and the chain continues. If you don’t get tagged immediately and can’t wait to participate, feel free to jump in at any time. I’ll try to keep track of all those participating in the meme here on this post so if you do participate, please either link back to this post to alert me via trackback, or drop me an email to let me know where to find your post. Hopefully this will be a fun one to participate in and we’ll end up with some great advice at the end as well.
Alright, let’s get this thing kicked off right. Here are the 5 people I’m tagging in no particular order:
- Christine Kayser (author of Prison Break: Lessons on Blogging)
- Darren Rowse (if you’re gonna go, go big right?)
- Chris Garrett (he helped me launch the only other theme I’ve ever started, the Charity Link Meme)
- Shane Ede (thatedeguy)
- and my fellow Digg researcher, Tamar
Remember, you can jump in at any time but remember to let me know (either by trackback or email) about your post. Enjoy!
