It’s back—with a groovy new button!
July 2009 is:
As we head into the dog days of summer, why not give our minds something to chew on?Mega Memory Month kicks off this Wednesday, July 1st.Here’s how to participate:
- Pick something to memorize. Try memorizing something long. Something formidable. Something mega. (challenge yourself relative to what you’ve tackled in the past.) It could be poetry, a famous speech, or a passage of Scripture.
- Announce it on your blog or in the comments of this post whenever you like. If you find out about MMM late or forget about it until halfway through the month, no problem. Jump in and do what you can in the time that remains.
- Leave a link (in Mr. Linky below or in the comments) that will take readers to your own blog’s MMM post. Non-bloggers are encouraged to participate as well through comments, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
- Include the new MMM button (by all means, use the smaller one below) to tie us together visually. It helps interested readers find and join the challenge!
- Start memorizing!

Progress Reports: I’ll be posting my own personal MMM Progress Reports on Tuesdays (they used to be on Mondays, but now that’s reserved for Make-Do Mondays). Mr. Linky will be provided for you to tie in, if you like. Chime in at any time during the week. Reports will be posted, Lord willing, July 7, 14, and 21. The 28th will be iffy, as I’ll be traveling and may not have Internet access.Final Thoughts: Nobody is judging how well we complete this month-long memory project—it simply provides public accountability.Don’t let the word “mega” discourage you from participating. Participate even if your selection is modest. In fact, my own might be pretty puny compared to those of some mega-memorizers. The bottom line is that we will be better for it.So jump in and join the carnival, whether you chip away at something short or long.I hope to encourage you along the way. For starters, click HERE for my mega collection of memorization tips and techniques.Let’s take a risk.Stretch ourselves.After all, Mega Memory Month is hosted by someone who feels that her mind is more like a sieve than a steel trap; yet, as I discovered during the past Mega Memory Months:Our minds can hold more than we think they can.
