The definitive list of meme-blogs

“Meme-blogs” are a growing internet trend, making up some of the highest trafficked sites on the web. Each meme accumulates tons of submissions, becoming a wealth of humor and curiosity. Some become books, and some get on tv, but they are all born on the internet.

I define a meme-blog as a stream of user-submitted content around a certain theme. Sure there are more than what’s on this list, but these are the original and best. So sit back and get your meme on. Here they are in two lists: Photo/video memes and text memes.

Plus, don’t miss the definitive twitter list of meme-blogs!

UPDATE: I made this list into its own site that YOU can contribute to! Check it out-

    And this wedding one “The Celebrations Game” It features the Best of the Worst newspaper wedding and engagement announcements. They’ve got mullets, half-staches, inappropriate touching and couples who aren’t the least bit happy about this milestone event in their lives. You can follow them on Twitter: @CelebrationGame

    Items offered for “free” on craigslist or similar that are:
    a) Can’t be moved
    b) Actually garbage
    c) You would normally have to pay hundreds of dollars to get removed (ie you have have the shutters off my house if you come and take them down)
    d) are completely insane (guy offers to show women the best “tricks” for shaving their pubic area)

    I am confused. What do you call a blog that uses book memes (self created) to talk about books ? Does that come under the category of a meme blog ??
