All About Me Meme

It’s Easy to Talk About Yourself

The letters of ME -- talking about yourself via a Meme.When people are asked to introduce themselves or write a short bio it seems like the majority say it’s too hard to talk about themselves. In all honestly we talk about ourselves all day. We interject pieces of ourselves into conversations, relate to other’s stories when they talk about theirs. We are actually pretty good at talking about ourselves. This blogging meme makes it even easier.

There are two ways that this meme can be tackled. It can be done all in one blog posting like shown here or broken down into numerous posts (use prompting in brackets) for different days of the week by elaborating on each point instead of just providing a short answer.

This article was part of a project I started on Blogging Memes on Squidoo but it makes more sense to have it on my blog.

A Sense of Me

Copy and paste into your blog and fill in the comments after each question (removing suggestions in brackets). Use the title of this meme in your subject line or create your own. If doing the individual post suggestions for each question you’ll need to come up with your own title. Feel free to tag your friends or not. A link back to this post would be appreciated.

What time did you wake up this morning? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs about your wake/sleep habits, and whether you sleep through the night and how much you dream.)
11:30 a.m.

What do you like most about yourself. (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on what you like and giving an example.)
My sense of loyalty.

What do you like least about yourself. (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on what you like and giving an example.)
My sense of paranoia.

Can you sing? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your abilities, favorite songs, and any professional experience.)
I can. But the question should be, “Should I?” I’m tone deaf.

Can you dance? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your abilities, favorite songs, and any professional experience.)
Yes. But again, the question is, “Should I?”

Do you smoke? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your experience smoking or quitting. If you never smoked write about your feelings about it and how you feel about people you know who do.)
No

Do you drink? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your experience drinking or quitting. If you never drink write about your feelings about it and how you feel about people you know who do.)
Very occasionally. A little mocha Bailey’s smoothie now and then or wine.

Can you swim? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your swimming experience. How/when did you learn, how often do you do it, a memory that stands out. If you can’t swim, write about why you haven’t learned and an experience.)
I can sink.

Year you were born? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs about something in history that happened that year.)
1969

Favorite color? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs elaborating on your favorite color. Why is it your favorite color, has it always been etc.)
Blue, baby!

Sleep with or without clothes? (If an individual post, write two paragraphs what kind of clothes your like to sleep in — or not.)
I get too cold for nude. Besides, I may have to run out during a house fire.

What time do you go to bed? (If an individual post, go into detail about your bedtime routine and why this is your bedtime.
Anywhere between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. depending what I am working on.

What About You

If you blog this meme then leave us a link to the post, I would love to come read about you. Warning! Non-related links will be deleted.

Don’t have a blog? Well then, cut and paste the above meme into the comment box below and tells us all about yourself!

100 Word Blog Challenge

Lists are easy to make and they are very personal to the person making them. Often the reader may not have the slightest idea what the list is about or it might be as transparent as a loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter.

Very quickly without much thought make a list of 100 words that are relevant to who you are and where you are at right now. Do not explain the words or why you chose them. Just quickly write them down. Around the fifty mark you will start to slow down but persevere. If you blog or journal make these your prompts for the next 100 days.
