Memes are like whims for me. Some days i have no desire to look at anything like that, let alone share it. And some days i want to share all these little tidbits with the world. Often what will make me post or share something (on facebook, primariyl) is if it inspires me, or makes me cry, or passionate, and sometimes it is just for a good chuckle
Example: last week i had a day where I must have posted at least 4 things. Two youtube videos of def poet Taylor Mali ("What teachers make" and "speak with conviction") -- I wanted people to be inspired, be energized. One was a video of the Danny Kaye movie on Hans Christian Anderson (singing the Ugly Duckling song) -- I had it stuck in my head b/c i was going to see my brother perform in a show also based on the ugly duckling. And thirdly i think it was a citi card add that referenced marshmallows.
All that to say, it can be inspirational, sharing a portion of my life or day, and even some thing silly...like marshmallows.
