In my first couple of years book blogging I think I did a few blog memes but I always found them such a chore (if you think I'm lazy as a fifteen year old you don't even want to know how lazy I was at eleven.) There were the book haul memes like In My Mailbox which I tried to do every week but I always forgot, and then it stressed me out trying to catch up. Also, I could never be bothered to take the photos required; told you I was lazy. To see one of my ancient, disastrous In My Mailbox posts you can click here. Cringe.
It wasn't long before I stopped with In My Mailbox because I wasn't enjoying it, although kudos to the person who started it in the first place because that thing got massively popular.
But why haven't I participated in others?
- Most bloggers do the same memes, and I'll admit it's a bit disappointing when I open up Bloglovin' and discover a long list of people doing exactly the same thing.
- I can't stick to a schedule, hence why I don't have one. I just make sure I have a blog post up every few days, and I think if I was to try with a strict schedule it could result in this blog ending altogether. I like doing tags because they can be done at any time, but memes... nope.
- I wouldn't dream of publishing a post that I hadn't enjoyed writing because, y'know, that would suck. And at the moment there just aren't any memes that stand out for me - although do feel free to recommend some!
Which blog memes do you enjoy participating in? Or are you like me, not doing them at all?
