Enough memes to gag a horse

I have been tagged for a lot of memes lately.
I'm going to answer them all in this post (take a deep breath and get comfy!).
As per my usual policy, I will not tag anyone. This is because I love all of you and do not want to receive any death threats.


First, LYNDA tagged me with the Schmooze Award. I am honored (I think). Here's what the award's creator has to say about it:

"Schmoozing, as defined by Dictionary.com is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much."

This is sweet, except really I'm more of a misanthropic bitter old crone. Even so, thank you, Lynda! :)


Next, Morgen tagged me with the Archive Meme.

This is how it works:
Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you've written. ...
Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about...
Link 4 must be about something you love
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

Here are my links:
#1: Family
#2: Friends
#3: Me
#4: Something I love
#5: Anything


And then, our final meme-tag comes from bluepaintred, who tagged me with this thing about blogging advice.

I'm supposed to put an asterisk beside the suggestions that I like, (next to the asterisks other people have already left.)

Then I add my own blogging tip to the bottom of the list.

1. Look, read, and learn. *****
2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other. *****
3. Don’t let money change ya! *****
4. Always reply to your comments. ****
5. Blog about what you know & love. **
6. Alt tag your images for added search engine exposure. **
7. Blogging is supposed to be fun, Don't let it stress you!*
8. Don't be afraid to look crazy now and then.


Whew. I feel better now that I've answered all these and crossed them off my "to-do" list.
Remember, I'm not tagging any of you, so please love me profusely.
Send cookies.
I love chocolate chip.


Mr. Fabulous said...

I am so happy you didn't tag me. Now you may live.

Janna said...

Mr. Fab: Don't forget to send the cookies.

Marilyn said...

Wow. You are popular. That would stress me.

Bobby Griffin said...

The results are in!! Check em out and see where your blog ranks!

fracas said...

I can relate. For a while, I too, was in meme hell. Having gotten out, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Shaaaaare the cookies with the 108..........

Travis said...

Sooooooooooo many memes.

Thanks for not tagging. I love you profusely.

**tosses cookies**

Uhm...wait...that's not right is it?

Janna said...

Marilyn: Don't worry. I'm not popular. Really.

Bobby: I came in forty-sixth! Actually that's a pleasant surprise, considering the fact that I didn't vote for myself and didn't ask anyone else to vote for me either. 46 out of 105 is really not so bad... Hmmm!

Fracas: Cross your toes, too, just to be sure.

The108: Mine! Mine! All mine!

Travis: Awwwww, please don't toss your cookies....

Morgen said...

so, can you hire someone to complete meme-tags for you?
Oh - there you go Janna, that would be a good online venture for you!
I'd gladly pay you to answer the back-load of meme-tags I have...


Lynda said...

I like the archive meme. That's pretty cool.

Don't suggest I try it though. I am still within my two week hiatus.

Janna said...

Morgen: I'll do all your memes for $20.00 each. Every Friday the 13th I plan to run a special; 3 memes for $50.

Lynda: I respect the hiatus.
