The fifth item on my vaguebooking list was “Five golden days (Melodious Monday, Thoughtful Tuesday, Wild Wednesday, Throw-back Thursday, and Funny Friday)”. I’m not actually sure those will be the names for the five days, or even the themes, but it is what I have so far.
Late last year, I started playing with some memes. Some of them you might have seen, like “You might be an astronomer if…” or “You might be a statistician if…”. I also did one for my wife about whether memos were urgent or not. I quite like doing them. I also really like doing quote ones. But I kind of put them together a bit haphazardly when I was doing them, or iterative at least. Not all the same design, or layout, inconsistent branding, etc. Theoretically I’m building a brand with my websites, but if you want to do it properly, one is supposed to be consistent in look and feel. There are a few sites on the net that I really admire their look, and I want something similar for my memes.
But I haven’t designed them yet, that’s a January project that I haven’t quite actioned yet, and so my goal is to have them launch later in the year. I’m thinking some of them will start in February, may even try out a few designs on people this month and get them to vote.
As that sounds like a bit of a vague plan, let me make it concrete — I commit to making 200 new memes this year, and to using the Seinfeld method to track progress. That should allow me enough incentive to get busy, although I’m hoping I blow that number out of the water. However, since I knew that I have another project that will affect my output in November, I’m taking into account that January and November will likely have no regular memes at all.
Oh, and while I won’t go into details about the extra project until November 1st, it’s going to be meme-tastic too. Meme-rrific. Memerable even. (Hey, it’s my blog, and I can pun badly if I want to…).
