Can someone please give me an accurate definition of ‘meme’ as my 1985 Oxford English, two volume dictionary, is of no help?
I have been tagged by “abfh” for the Thinking Blogger meme.
Many thank you’s for forcing me up the blogging learning curve!
These are the official rules for participation:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to “this” post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote.
1. I tag “Jambav Parenting” because they were one of the first groups to contact me when I started blogging. Their’s is a collective effort, which means that the variety and range of parenting experiences gives me a more balanced perspective. [translation = also, we share a common language, as ‘American’ is far too tricky to understand]
2. Then “Facing Autism in New Brunswick,” because I am a frequent visitor, love the bicameral parliamentary system, which reminds me of home, and I adore Connor even though we’ve never met. [Should bicameral parliamentary system be in capitals?]
3. I also visit “Kim Stagliano” even though she drives me batty with her irregular postings. She makes me laugh and is out numbered, as I am. Also because, as an aspiring writer, she’s cracked it, so I can watch her fly from the wings.
4. “Estee” also gives me great pause for thought, although she also has a nasty habit of posting irregularly – have these people no schedules! [translation = timetables and a clock] She is doing such “sterling stuff” that it knocks my socks off and I don’t think I’ve ever seen her do one of these before.
5. Lastly, a newbie for me, is “John Elder Robinson.” Just the name is enough to make me bow, or should that be genuflect? I will be buying his book, “Look me in the eye,” [translation = even though it will be a hard back and therefore extravagantly expensive] but in the meantime I am thoroughly enjoying watching the birthing process. [of a book!]
