There is another meme running around, a “Blogging Tips” meme, and I have been tagged by MMOre Insight for this one. While I appreciate the thought (the only thing worse than being talked about and such), I am going to decline to participate.
Well, it is not because of any meme hate. I generally participate when I get tagged and do my own tagging as well. Memes can be fun and interesting, as you get to compare how different people respond to the same question.
This meme, however, is not interesting to me at all. It is a link Ponzi Scheme. The “winners,” if there is such a thing as “winning” on the web, will be those at the top of the list, with the creator of this meme reaping the most links.
Then there is the creator. Well, I won’t link the site, but I went to check on it before I rejected this meme.
While the site says it is about “helping bloggers,” it is riddled with ads, with the offer “Get Reviewed By This Blog For $60” at the top. I am sure there would be no question of integrity with a “for pay” review.
While I have no problem with anybody’s attempt to make money with their own site, you can count me out when it comes to the crass usage of a meme to further your own revenue. This is nothing more than meme spam created by somebody looking to make a buck off the work of other bloggers.
My blogging tip: Write the blog you want to read.
The blog I want to read doesn’t indulge in links for links sake.
