What Is This Site?5412 days ago
Freememes.com is a weblog. It's a personal diary on the web. Weblogs are often-updated sites that point to articles elsewhere on the web, often with comments, and to on-site articles. A weblog is kind of a continual tour, with a human guide who you get to know. Example: A developer links and comments interesting websites, articles etc. he notices during his daily surfing. Hence the name: Web-log, chronic of the web, a personal, openly accesible readers digest. There are many guides to choose from, each develops an audience, and there's also comraderie and politics between the people who run weblogs, they point to each other, in all kinds of structures, graphs, loops.

Google for more and better explanations.Why do you write a weblog?
Mainly because of three things.
- I want to share my thoughts with others and therefore communicate.
- A simple explanation for the term 'Memes' is 'Thoughts'. I write them down and connect them, so i can find them later or get a bigger picture over the time. It's also a little bit about bookmarks.
- Improve writing and english skills.
