Go Ahead, Make My Meme
I'm a meme junkie. I love them. I will spend hours reading one after another, saving the ones I like to my hard drive...then I'll share them on social media.
I enjoy my meme hunts so much, it may qualify as an addiction.
And as you know, any good addiction comes with a lot of rationalization.
Memes are an art form. They're entertainment snippets that can inspire, bring laughter, or move a person to make a personal change. They've worked their way into our culture and one day, historians will be studying our memes as closely as they did political cartoons (so says me).
Memes are easy and cheap to make. They allow anyone to express an opinion and their creativity.
And when used correctly, memes can also be a marketing tool. We all know any content we put on the net becomes fodder for public shares and consumption...or at least we hope it does after we add our name or website to one of our awesome works of art!!
So, here they are, my contribution to C. Lee McKenzie, Christine Rains, and Tara Tyler meme's blog hop!
Thanks to our hosts Lexa, L.G, and Tonja Drecker for this weekly good things check in!
1. Boy #3 was awarded the Presidential Scholarship from WVU. I'm so proud of him. He needed to score a 30 on his ACT to get this. He kept missing it by a point, but on his third try, he got a 31.
2. Boy #4 has agreed to a haircut. I try not to sweat the small stuff, but I was beginning to wonder if I'd have to buy this guy a head band to be able to see with the mop of bangs he was sporting.
3. Boy #2 has a birthday this weekend! He'll be (how much is 1996-2016?) twenty years old!! Oh my.
