One of the recent trends in the blogging world are memes. I, myself, have been tagged in several of them in the past few months. First, let’s start off with the basics. Simply put, memes are a series of questions that one person after another decides to re-post and answer. Usually, memes come with a set of rules, generally including giving credit to the person’s site where you found the meme, answering questions, and then suggesting by tagging your friends to answer the questions on their site as well.

When it comes down to it, one of the primary reasons blogs exist is to gain readership. There are many obvious reasons why a blogger wants to bring in visitors: to share information, to build a community, to make money, and so on. Once the visitor is on their site, most bloggers want to make sure they coming back for more.

But what happens when the number of subscribers starts to drop? A few readers here and there may remain unnoticed on sites with 10,000+ subscribers, but on small to medium sites, a drop of five to ten subscribers can feel like a major setback.
I was tagged by Richard at Makak Media to do the 7 Things People Don’t Know About Me meme. This is my third tag (that I know of) and each time, I like to do something a bit different. For this tag, I am going to write about 7 things that new or dedicated readers may not know about me and the history of Kikolani.com.
