I participate in several weekly memes. What's a meme? From Wikipedia:
A meme (pronounced /miːm/ - rhyming with "dream"), a postulated unit or element of cultural ideas, symbols or practices, gets transmitted from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena.

Here are some examples of the memes that are out there (and there are many more than this):
I am a regular with Shadow Shot Sunday and ABC Wednesday.
It's good to see what others do with the same subject matter. It keeps the creative process fresh. And, along the way, I've developed some great friendships with others from around the world. My readership base has increased tremendously. Over 3500 hits since December.
For the ABC Wednesday meme (where we go through the alphabet and each Wednesday is the next letter) this week's letter was "N". I would encourage all of you to go to David Mcmahon's blog and see what he posted for the letter, "N" which has to do with digits and numbers. David lives in Australia. He always has something profound and insightful to say. Which is why he gets over 250 hits a day! Google had listed his blog as a "blog of note". But, really, go visit his blog and read his post. Truly enlightening!
I would also encourage you to leave comments at the blogs you visit. It's a nice thing to do in "bloglandia". Including this one! ; )
