My Six Word Memoir

Written by

For those of you who don't follow such things, there's a thing in the world of blogging (often called a blogosphere) called a meme. Basically someone takes a topic, writes about it, and then "tags" others to write about it. I suppose if you don't write about it, you get stuck being "it." As we learned at an early age, no one wants to be "it."

The point of the story is that I've been "tagged" by credit addict. I need to write six words that encompass my thoughts. So I had six words together:

Be Ben Franklin... healthy, wealthy, wise.

However, fate has changed my memoir. I was tagged for the same meme by Fat Man Unleashed to write one for Lazy Man and Health. This means that I'm going to have to split my single statement into two reflecting each personality.

Thus for Lazy Man and Money, I go with:

Money - freedom to do almost anything

This is really what Lazy Man and Money is about. I talk about being Lazy, but that's just one example of what is possible when you are financially independent. I feel that it strikes a chord on some level with most people.

If you are curious what my health memoir is, please check my six word memoir at Lazy Man and Health.

The proper thing at this point is to tag some others. I'm not one to support pyramid schemes, so I'm going to tag three people total from my two websites. This is a more "sustainable" meme that will help it last longer. And rather than tag the big blogs, I'm going to bring attention to three blogs that have unique viewpoints, only a handful of posts, and could benefit greatly from your attention.

These sites are:

For those people the rules are simply:

  • Write your own six word memoir.
  • Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you wish.
  • Link to the person who tagged you in your post.
  • Tag at least three more blogs.
  • Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

    I really like your new memoir. It implies that making money isn’t really about making money – it’s about freedom. I think that’s smart and I totally agree with it. :)

    Mine would be “I’d rather be happy than rich, though I wouldn’t mind being both”.

    Bubba, that’s a few more than 6 words ;-)
