A Meme About Making a Difference

My mom has been teaching me about memes. I came up with some good questions about what it means to make a difference. I am going to answer all of these questions myself, and then I am going to tag some of YOU to answer them in your blogs or in my comments section! Memes are one way to start a conversation between blogs or between a blogger and his or her readers. I answered all of this by myself, but my mom is typing for me tonight so I am not staying up past my bedtime : )!

1. In your opinion, what does it mean to make a difference?

It means you are helping someone or making something better. It doesn’t mean you have to do something really big (like saving the Rainforest). It means you can do something small (like recycling).

2. What is an example of a unique way to make a difference?

The most unique thing I’ve done to make a difference, I think, was to recycle bottles and then donate the money to Suneel’s Light. Some of the unique things that other people are doing through my contest were saving a cat, feeding expired parking meters, and paying for the Tim Horton’s order of the person behind them in the drive thru!

3. Who has made a difference in YOUR life this week?

My family has and all of the people who are reading this blog and leaving comments. I’ve really learned that a little good goes a very long way!

My teacher, Mrs. Nabozny, has also made a difference in my life this week. She’s taught me that having a book club can be complicated but fun. I started a book club at school because she helped me! I love books!

4. If I didn’t have a blog, would you still be making a difference?

I would still be trying to make a difference, but the difference wouldn’t be as “big.” First of all, I know that I need to come here every day to blog about what I’m doing, and if I don’t do anything, I won’t have anything to write about. Having an audience encouraging me makes me want to do even more good things! I also think it is kind of fun making a difference every day and writing about it every day. I love looking at my comments too! It is fun to see what everyone else is doing.

5. What is your favorite thing about the internet?

That the internet can teach me things. Sometimes, people don’t give accurate information about things, but when you use the internet well, you can get a lot of good information. It is also fast! I like finding answers quickly. I have also been able to talk with people from all over the world who have things in common with me! I have new friends in India and Guam and New Zealand and Chicago!

I am tagging Orange Soda 2000, Coco, Sarah W., Lillian, Duncan, Hunter and Drew, Sheila Cason, and Kelly Genet! I’d also like it if some of the students and teachers who are participating can blog about this too!  Can you please answer these questions on your blog or in my comments? And then, if you can, tag someone else too!

  6. […] July 12, 2008October 13, 2014 Dayve 1. In your opinion, what does it mean to make a difference? As long as people would be able to differentiate between the original and the modified one… Ahahahaha~ A slight difference counts too… I mean, it does not have to be obvious and clear for people to say “Ah, you’ve made this day looks different!”… Difference can either be small or big thing… Depending on our perceptions…  2.

A friend who always asks questions… This ‘friend’ never cease from asking questions like partners, life, etc… Which in the end makes me think about it…  4. What is your favorite thing about the internet? Boundless information.. and of course… I need the Internet to do my assignments as well as pissing times away with reading journals! Gosh, I hate journals! Hehehehe~ 5. If I didn’t have a blog, would you still be making a difference? There’ll be a big difference… Well, depends… source: 25 Days To Make Difference […]
