I love memes (see playlist and this infographic if you want to know more about memes). I know that isn’t a very original thing to say. After all, memes owe their existence to our universal enjoyment. But I don’t mean that I love simply to view them. I do, I’m not a robot after all, but I really really love making them (see my Meme gallery). This love is similar to my six-word story addiction, but some days I feel like creating something more visual more interactive — and that’s where memes come in! Exhibit A (created to celebrate my love of six-word stories using The Most Interesting Man In The World meme – Create Your Own here):
Meme making is something creative and fun and is a wonderful escape. You can spend just a few minutes creating a meme capturing your mood or thought of the moment or you can spend hours. I must warn you that meme making can be a black hole that can swallow hours if not a whole day. Much like potato chips, I can rarely stop with just one meme. That is why I chose the the X All The Y meme (create your own here) to illustrate this post.
I often meme to blow off some steam:
You can learn about memes on the Know Your Meme web site and the world is the limit for creating your own although I have included links to a number of templates just to get you started.
Now go forth and create your own memes! Don’t forget to share them using the #JustWrite hashtag (and #memes too).
