This is the Day You Link Up, Not Yesterday.

I am not sure how to make the process more clear. Someone please help me.

There is still confusion about how to do this meme.

Here is the schedule:

Tuesday: I post questions. You post nothing. At least not the answers to the questions.

Wednesday: You post your answers on your blog. You click on your blog title. You go up to the address bar and copy the code for that post. You come back to my blog and paste that address in the Mr. Linky section. You go visit other participants and say nice things.

Thursday: Continue to visit those you missed, and usually I post my own answers.

I hope that is helpful. Otherwise, I'm about to "give up the ghost" as Grandma used to say in exasperation.

1. What is your favorite Mexican dish?

2. When you were a kid, did you get started on your homework right away after school, or did you procrastinate?

3. What is your favorite store for home furnishings?

4. When you were young, did you like school lunches?

5. Is religion a crutch?

6. In your region, what is the "big" (most popular in the community or state) high school sport?

7. Do you consider yourself rich?

8. Which of these would you have the best chance for success in administering:
B) Heimlich Maneuver
C) Changing a flat tire

9. Which dance would you prefer to learn & why:
A) Salsa
B) Hip Hop
C) Waltz
D) Swing

10. What's the worst news you've ever delivered to someone?

11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics.

12. New variation on an old question: If there's a song in your head that just won't get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song?

Maybe this will lead to help everyone clarify! :) If not...just give you the ghost. :P

Just began following you. I think the confusion is that many of these blog hops start before the scheduled day. If it's Wednesday's hop, people begin posting Tuesday night. I'm just a new blogger, but this is what I've observed. If they don't want the people to participate early, they usually can't post a link. I'm sure you know all that, but you just sounded so upset, so I thought I'd comment. I understand your concern. I want to participate for sure, and I'll get ready to post for tomorrow. Thanks!


Loved the questions this week. Can't wait to see YOUR answers.

Jill said...

Questions copied? Check. Answers posted? check. Link given? Check. Lovin' it? Check!

Maribeth said...

Okay this week I made sure my linky was the correct address. These were good questions!

Lea said...

If I can do the whole meme "thing" anyone should be able to. :o) I actually find it quite simple.

Always enjoy Random Wednesday and do appreciate your hosting it each week.

Smiles and Blessings!

LOVED this week's RD. However thinking about the answer to question 1 did make me crave Mexican food.

Have a great Wednesday

Mocha with Linda said...

It's clear. You and I are rule followers. Others, notsomuch.

Lisa Laree said...

Weelllll...I got my days mixed up. Hey, it happens when you get old. Don't quit on my account! I promise to do better in the future!

Anyway, I've got my RD answers up (so they were a little early) with a giveaway this week!

Thanks for doing this every week--it is a lot of fun!

Maybe the people who try to link up on Tuesday don't come back Wed. so see the link-up post? I don't know. I guess people don't read thoroughly.

You could not be more clear my dear. A girl can only do so much. It's up to "them" now. Come on "them", you can do this! There. Maybe just a smidgen more encouragement from a fellow blogger will help. Glad to be of service to you over here today.

I participated last week, but this week, I don't know. It's packing day for the college bound and I'm pretty messed up in the emotional department. Don't really trust myself on what I would say in answer to the Q's today.

But do come by and let me know what you think of my new blog goal- Julie and Julie style. See ya!

Hi! New player & follower here :)

I linked up on Mr Linky!

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

Hey, Lid. Maybe you could close comments on Tuesdays and they won't have anywhere to link. This would help with those who are new to the meme. Just a thought.

SouthLakesMom said...

Don't give up -- the hiatus gave many people "summer brain drain"...once we're all back in our school/fall routine, we'll be much better behaved.


Melli said...

LOL! MOST meme's run the same day the questions are posted - so I DO understand the people who have trouble with this... but maybe for the new people who join each week you should make an instruction page ... or you could post the rules at the top of each page with Melli Language - you know... copy TODAY, but DO NOT post answers until TOMORROW! You could even bold the caps! But even that will probably NOT catch some people's attention! :)

I, however, followed all the rules. *angelic smile*

SusanD said...

Thanks for making your instructions are crystal clear. Great questions this week. Thanks for hosting. Blessings, SusanD

I do lots of memes and this is one of the best I've seen lately. Enjoyed it. I'm linked up. :)

Debby said...

Really, people are confused. It's easy peasy. I appreciate your hard work. Have a random day!

Susanne said...

Great questions this week Linda! I didn't even stress over any of them. LOL.

Merrie said...

I just find people do what they want to do and don't read/follow instructions. If they do it wrong, they miss out. They will learn and do it right the next time - maybe... if not, they lose out the next time too. It might take 40 times around the mountain - or 40 years... we are dumb animals after all!

ruthhill74 said...

linked mine up! Thanks!

Teresa Dawn said...

Time zone could very well be part of your problem too. I know for me the questions go up Monday Evening, the Link-Up comes up Tuesday Evening. If you have ppl that are in Asia or Australia at all here, the questions will go up Wednesday for them and the Link-Up on Thursday.

Joyce said...

ha-I'm a rule follower too. And mostly inept so I don't know how people link up early unless they just stay up way later than me which is entirely possible.

I never post early. I'm lucky to get mine up on the actual day!

Susan said...

I answered and I'm ready to surf today. :-)

New to the Random Dozen this week and am loving it!

Thanks for the fun questions, Linda! They were a lot easier this week!!!

BTW, kudos to Jorge for cleaning the house for you. What a lucky lady you are!

I linked. I think it even worked!
