This week in class we discussed the nature of memes and looked at a variety of examples (there’s literally SO many variations out there). For our blog post we were instructed to pick a meme that had something to do with our blog (or whatever we were feeling for the day). I was kind of stumped on this because I really didn’t know what memes would be out there that had anything to do with foodie blogging…so I basically spent almost an hour on knowyourmeme.com searching through the meme database (like I said, there’s a million out there on the web). When I wasn’t finding anything I decided that I should maybe use a meme generator and create my own…while trying to do that I was still stumped and had no idea what basic meme to use and individualize. That’s when I stumbled upon the “Keep Calm and Carry On” meme. The original “Keep Calm and Carry On” was transmitted throughout the web and later a series of templates were created around the central theme “Keep Calm And…” There are tons of variations of this meme scattered around the Internet with all different phrases coming after the original “Keep Calm.” I found this one and figured it was perfect to post…who doesn’t love cupcakes? This would be cute to even find a poster of and hang on the kitchen wall for all you foodies out there.
