Blogging Meme—Blog Post Prompt—TRUST

I talk to a lot of writers with blogs. And one of the biggest problems they face is finding topics to blog about. Today I'd like to help solve that problem.

I'm starting a new Meme today. If you're not sure what a Meme is, here's a post I wrote about How to Increase Your Blog's Visibility With Memes. 

For this Meme, I'll post a prompt, then you write a blog post around that prompt. After your post is up, you can link it back here. The advantage is that others will see your blog and can visit, and we can all gain exposure to new followers. 

Directions to Incorporate a Meme into a Blogger or Wordpress post:
  • First you'll need to set up an account with a Link service. I used Linky for this one. It's free for the first month and $2 per month there after. I like the options this service provides, but there are others that are completely free.
  • Next, you'll need to write your blog post. I recommend you compose your post before you generate your Meme so you'll have an idea of what to name it and how you want to describe it. I always compose my post in just the regular text window (as opposed to the HTML window) because I don't like to compose code.
  • Now you'll need to go to Linky and generate your meme. I recommend you begin with just the basic link. After you've generated your link, copy the code and return to your blog compose window. 
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Before you past your link into your blog post change your view to the HTML window. This is VERY important. If you don't do this, your link will not work. After you're in HTML view paste the code at the end of your blog post.
Blog Post Prompt:
Your mission, if you should choose to accept it, is to compose a blog post around an acronym...and the word is...  


Take your blog’s topic and compose a post using the LETTERS in the word TRUST. Here’s an example of what I mean. I used the ABCs to compose a blog post about Social Networking

  1. Hi Edie. I'm excited to join your meme. When you say take your blog's topic and compose a post, do you mean the theme of our blog? Or do you mean create a blog post with our interpretation of the word trust? Sorry for the confusion.

    1. Ashley, I'm sorry for the confusion! Take the theme of your blog, and write a post with that slant using trust as the focus. Hope this clarifies my rambling! I'm looking forward to reading your post! Blessings, E

    2. I hope I did this right, Edie. Put a linky list on my post. Not sure I was supposed to do that???

    3. Ashley, you did great! You did a FANTASTIC post! I left a comment on your blog post (which I got to by following your linky icon) Thanks so much for joining the fun.Blessings, E

    1. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with...

  3. So a MEME is a topic theme for your website/blog, or a theme for your post?

    1. A Meme is nothing more than linked posts from different people. Here's the link to a post I wrote a while back explaining Meme's: http://thewriteconversation.blogspot.com/2012/06/meme-mondaysincrease-your-blogs.html
      I hope this helps. Blessings, E

  4. I love this idea. As Nan says, you've got me thinkin. I'm not sure I'll be able to do the link-up, but I'll try to email you with what I'm come up with. Love you, precious friend.

  5. A fun way to look at my blog -- thanks, Edie!

  6. I was just thrilled that it worked when I did it!
