Blogging Tags, Memes and Challenges

blog tags, memes and challenges

What are blogging tags, memes and challenges?


Basically they're lists of questions you can answer on your blog. 'Meme' was the most used term back in the day, but now you're more likely to come across 'tag' for the same sort of thing - the latter refers to the fact that you are generally expected to tag other bloggers to answer the questions after you. I prefer the term 'challenge' because I like to be different.

Why should I care?


Blog challenges can be a great source of content, especially on days when you don't feel like writing a post from scratch. Getting tagged to take part in a challenge can also be a good source of backlinks, if you're into that kind of thing.

Where can I find them?


Google, as usual, is your friend, and you can keep an eye on social media and blog linkies to find out which challenges are doing the rounds. For now, check out my list of blog challenges to get you going...
