Blog Tagging...

So, how many of you actually know what tagging is all about, in reference to blogging? Well, I was just reading this post by Steve Nipps where I encountered the concept of tagging. Although it wasn't the first time I heard the word, I wasn't too sure about what it was all about. So, as always, Wikipedia came to my rescue :-P. While I was searching for it, this is what I figured out -

A memetag (or meme tag) is a blog tag that is included in all posts that reference a meme. When a meme is started on a blog — for example, 'your top five favourite movies' — the meme tag is included at the foot of the text of each post that responds to the meme invitation.


By including a memetag, bloggers are recognising the initial creator of the meme and allowing them to track how their meme has spread across the blogosphere through the use of social media tools such as Technorati.


While inclusion of a memetag is not mandatory, it is done in the spirit of information sharing across the web and is a system based on trust.


Example:


A blogger invites five other bloggers to list their 'top five songs of all time'.


Those bloggers publish their list, incude the memetag that links back to the original invite, then invites five more bloggers and asks them to include a link to the original post.


The next five list their top five songs of all time, each linking back to the original post using the memetag. Each of them invites five more friends.


And so on.



So, I thought why not I too take it up, for once, and tag people I know? In a way, this also lets me know how many people actually follow my blog :-) n also I happen to popularise a new concept in my blogging circle. Since I currently don't have any question at hand, I'll take up the ones Steve used. Hope I can do that...

Well...it's just that once I write things abt me...and then say, I tag a few people...those folks have to copy the questions i've answered n answer them themselves in their own blog...along with it...u r supposed to name n link the person hu hd tagged u...n after u've answered all of them...u gotta tag some more people...in turn, those people also got to answer the same questions in their own blogs. It's like...passing on a baton.

Do u get it now?
