Memes. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. Sometimes you just use them because your brain is fried and it’s an easy post. And there are million memes to choose from.
One of the biggest issues with a meme is that you’re usually tagged or asked to tag other bloggers to keep the meme going. (If you’re "tagged" for something, it’s an invitation to play along.) Sometimes, though, you don’t want to tag anyone or you just don’t want to play. Now what do you do?
My opinion is that you are never obligated to play or tag. Trust me: the meme will not die because you did not tag or because you did not participate. Memes never die.
If you are reluctant to play, it would be polite to e-mail the blogger who tagged you and let them know you’ll not be playing this round. You can give them a reason or not. The main thing is to just be polite–like you’re declining an invitation to a Tupperware party or something. Not that there’s anything wrong with Tupperware parties. I’m just making a parallel example. I like Tupperware.
