Zippity Do Dah! Zippity MEME!

Hello all you lovely people! Caryl McAdoo here! 

Do you know what  a meme is? Up until a few months ago, I didn’t! I was even making them, but had no idea what they were called. I started noticing them showing up.  

My cousin’s daughter kept posting the coolest collages of her photos…and I'd see lovely scripture references…and authors posted such nice photos with their book covers in them along with text.

One young lady, still in high school but with her first book published already. I’d made friends with her and so asked how she did that. She told me at PicMonkey, so I went there and found it very user friendly, even for a Grami! You can do all sorts of things there. They have truly awesome tutorials!

Digital Birthday Blessings, Congratulations messages, fun thank yous! Anything your imagination can conceive!

Memes are creative ways to get the word out, bring joy to someone you love and even to people you don't know! Tell them all sorts of things like 'God loves you'! 

And don't forget the holidays! Memes are a great way to say Happy Happy Day!

My husband calls me an addict! Ah ha ha ha! I'd just be a contented lady if I could design memes all day :) I love seeing how creative others get and try to hone my skills! They are boss when advertising a sale...like the one I have going on now! A Little Lower Than the Angels is volume one in my newest series, The Generations, Biblical fiction. I personally don't believe God's story should be changed at all - not a jot or tittle! But I love bringing His stories to life! This first on is about the first man, and his helpmate and sons..with a liberal dose of angels, and how they live in Heaven, the good battle evil.

And if you see any memes advertising a sale of one of your favorite authors, do click share to let your friends know about the great price they can get on a fantastic novel! Good for friends, and good for your author. You've done something to help others!

And there's Facebook banners. Change them as often as you like and have fun at PicMonkey. They've got the perfect size! (Be sure not to put anything in the lower left hand corner you don't want covered up with your profile photo! Do you hear the voice of experience? :) Here's one that has all my newest titles - those since March 2014!

I know there are other sites as well where you can make memes. Y'all mention other ones if you know of them and tell me if you've seen any you particularly enjoyed. In the meanwhile - - - go forth and MEME! And have a blessed, favor filled day! For a comment, I'll put your name in the drawing for a FREE COPY of my new JULY RELEASE > ONE AND DONE < It's a contemporary Red River Romance with a Texas Ranger pitcher for a hero!   So LEAVE A COMMENT!

Caryl McAdoo currently writes three series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; and The Generations, her Biblical fiction. The novelist loves singing new songs the Lord gives her, and she paints. In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty-five years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and fourteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State.

  1. Thanks Caryl, I love to make birthday cards and I guess that the front could be termed a meme, with pictures & quotes they look like some you have shown :) I enjoyed your post & now know where to visit, because the windows I have now ~ my card program is extinct !

  2. Thanks for the helpful information!

  3. I didn't know they were called MEMES. I've made a few using the Instatus app. I'm going to try Picmonkey. Thanks for the info!

  5. Huh, learn something new everyday! I had no idea what a meme was (still really don't) but I have a better picture, if you will, of what they are. Guess I'll have to go check out PicMonkey because I can so see me get addicted too....lol!! Thanks for the shout out about this, Caryl!

  6. I do see memes popping up all over the internet. They certainly catch the attention.

  7. I've seen lots of these but never heard this name for them. I have seen some called a Collage. The only thing I knew about the meme is what some grandmothers are called. :)
    I would be happy to win your book. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. You had me smiling throughout your whole post. I didn't know they were called memes until a month ago! Unfortunately, it takes me a long time to catch on to new tech names, catchphrases, etc. I have to endure the eye rolls from my kids when I question what they're talking about. :)

  9. Thanks for the info. I didn't know what they were either.
