I Must Confess…I’m a Meme/Blog Hop/Link Up Whore

I have a confession to make. I have become a meme/blog hop/link up whore. I don’t quite know how it has happened but it has.

It has been a over a week since my last original post, one that hasn’t been submitted for, or inspired by, another blogger link-up.

This has not been by design. I struggle to find the time to write posts during my work week (Monday to Thursday) and, it so happens, a few of my favourite memes occur over the weekend.

I’m looking at you Shae (Things I Know), Maxabella (I’m Grateful For), Glowless (Flog Yo Blog Friday) and Multiple Mum (Weekend Rewind)…temptresses, each and every one of you!

I have fallen into the habit of writing to these memes rather than writing my own normal posts. Which isn’t entirely a bad thing in itself, but not good if, afterwards, you’re left with no time to write your own original content.

So, today, I am trying to write some unique posts in an attempt to schedule them through the week when I am unable to usually find the time to blog.

I am going to try to restrain my zeal for linking up to other memes for a while (but not totally…that would be a little too cruel!) and concentrate on building up some original and interesting content on here for you all.

My ultimate act of atonement, once I get my blog in order, is to host a linkup of my own. It’s going to be called “I Must Confess” and I hope it will be a bit of fun where we can just share things that are silly, embarrassing, or funny.

Still working on how I want my button to look and which day of the week would be best to hold it but hoping to have something sorted in few weeks after my self-imposed meme semi-sabbatical ends. Sadly, I already have a LOT of ideas for suitable posts…

In the meantime, enjoy my (hopefully) more regular posts and feel free to let me know what you think of the blog and whether yet another meme would be a good idea…

Spread the positivity!

  1. Hahaha Kirsty, classic truths! I love link ups and I usually jump on this theme when I’m short on blogging time too…. sadly I’ve been so short on time the past two weeks I’ve written absolutely nothing…. not even a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post!
    I look forward to your link, sounds like a great idea which I’m sure everybody will have content! See you again soon xx

      Carly, I love linkups too, just a little too much! I have never done Wordless Wednesday though (I am not a fantastic photographer, like yourself!) but there are so many around that I’m sure I could do one every day if I wanted to. I have been a bit hesitant to share my plans for a new linkup thinking it would be oversaturisation but I’m pleasantly surprised by the encouraging comments so far!!!!

    This resonates so much with me Kirsty!!! Mon-Thurs I just don’t get a chance to be near the computer, so it is so easy to link with the others. I love the idea for your link up!!

    I also like the idea of scheduling some posts – might have to look at doing them ahead to make sure Mon – Thurs has some content!!!

    I will be back for I confess! xx

      Chantel, I’m glad I’m not the only one (having said that I’m not including you in the category of blog whore!)

      I’ll let you know how I go with the scheduling – my problem is I write when I’m inspired so it’s hard to pre-plan what I may be inspired about – but I’m hoping to have some posts sorted by the end of the weekend.

      And yay for you liking the idea of I Must Confess – must get onto that then!!!

  3. You are a total whore but I like!

    I will totallllllly play along to your linky when you get it up. I have so much to confess!!! xx

      Thanks Gemma, I had to put my shameful secret out there…:) I feel cleansed after that confession!

      I’m so pleased people might want to play along, I think it would be heaps of fun (I do love a great linkup!) but wasn’t sure if there was the interest/desire out there for another meme…crap, may have to do something about this, after all!

  4. Sounds interesting!

    Looking forward to the hop.
    I will also join in. :mrgreen:
