But it takes a lot of time to visit and return comments from everyone who stops by. I love finding new blogs this way, too, but I've been so behind on responding to comments and I feel like, aside from the content I'm posting for these memes, the most important aspect of memes is the follow-through. And I've been neglecting that aspect almost entirely the last three months or so because of real life.
But it's not just that. My meme posts always end up getting buried on Tuesdays and Wednesdays because I've got other stuff -- reviews, discussions, giveaways, etc. -- that I want to post immediately and that I want to be my top post. If the only way people are seeing it is through me linking up to another blog, then is it really for my readers?
I love reading teasers because they give me a taste of the writing in a book I may or may not have already been interested in. I love a good top ten list as much as the next person. And I love helping others discover new reads each week, as well as finding my own when visiting others' WoW posts. But is that enough to keep doing them? I started doing them a) because they're fun, b) because they're easy, and c) because I didn't have a whole heckuva lotta content back then. Now, I seem to be overflowing with ideas and reviews, so they're not necessary, per se.
But do you find them helpful? Do you like memes like Teaser Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday? Would it matter one iota to you if I stopped them altogether? What if I still posted when I didn't have anything better? Does that make them less worthwhile because they're fallback posts?
Obviously, I haven't made a decision yet, but I would really value your feedback on this, guys. So, what are your feelings on memes these days?
