One Man’s BiggerPockets Experience – Narrated by 15 Mildly Amusing Internet Memes

by Seth Williams on June 6, 2014 · 26 comments

  
BiggerPockets Experience

If you’re not familiar with “internet memes”, let me give you a quick rundown.

According to Wikipedia,

meme (/ˈmm/ meem)[1] is “an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture. A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another.”

If you’ve spent any time in the social media sphere – you’ve probably seen a few of these before. Here are a few examples…

Sometimes they’re hilarious, sometimes they’re lame – but the basic premise behind a meme is for a little piece of “culture” to get passed around and appreciated by like-minded people.

Over the months and years that I’ve hung out in the BP community, I’ve found that many of us are here for a lot of the same reasons. We have similar motivations, we go through many of the same highs and lows together, we’ve experienced a lot of the same wins and setbacks throughout our investing careers and we all depend on the networking and learning that happens here in the BP community…  so why not try to immortalize a few of those sentiments with a little collection of internet memes??

Here is my first (and possibly last) attempt at creating a small collection of internet memes that (hopefully) some BiggerPockets users will be able to relate to…
