Day One: De-Selfie

Jamie - Introducing Myself on Self-Portrait Tuesday in 2006
 You knew we were going to start here, didn't you? 
We want to see who we're playing with this month! 

Kick it Old Skool by sharing a picture of you.

Shannon - My First Self-Portrait Tuesday (and long-time profile pic) from 2006

These pics are from our old blogs but we'd love to see you today (and we'll share our current pics on our blogs too) Or heck, throw yourself into it and share with us a pic of you today and a pic of you back in the day!

(And yep, we know #selfie is a New Skool term but the idea of sharing a picture of yourself is definitely Old Skool!)
 
Participate by responding to the prompt on your blog and sharing a direct link (i.e. to the specific post not just to your blog) in the Mr. Linky below. The direct link is important so that we all know we're in the right place when we get there!

  1. I admit that I cheated a bit on this first one. I just started my blog in October, and a couple of weeks ago I posted my first (and only) selfie and used it as the topic of my post for that day. I have linked to that post here, as I don't think the public could take two selfies of me in one month! (tee hee.)

  2. Oh wow - A friend posted this link on facebook and I am SO glad I came to check it out. I remember when blogging was so different - lots of silly fun and BOY did I have a blast with it! I can't wait to see what tomorrow's prompt will be!

  3. Just a note to participants: I tried leaving a comment on a couple of your blogs and wasn't able to because I don't have any of the account types listed (i.e. Google, WordPress, TypePad, etc.) If you can somehow change your settings to allow people to comment with just a name and email or web address, more of us could join in on the comment love. :)

  7. Jamie, not that long ago I created my first blog just so I could play along with your dreamboards and book club. I missed out on the early days of Old Skool blogging, but I am loving the idea of this revival so I can join the fun this time around!

  16. As I've read the posts, I realized I was supposed to post an old selfie from an earlier blog. I'll chalk the mistake up to the sinus headache bugging me today. Actually I think I needed to be brave and post today's "me", which I did. This is supposed to be fun so Im not even going to change it. Going with the flow today and enjoying looking at all the beautiful ladies in this group!

  19. Wow, what a start to this thing! I just spent WAYYY too much time on one blog post, but, boy, was it therapeutic. Not gonna make each day's post book length, but I'm glad I got so much off my mind and onto the screen today. Looking forward to sharing with all of you!! xo

  22. I can't do Donna's blog link -- #36 because it is a private blog and says I do not have permission...so Donna, if your blog is on "private" can you open it for the links and the challenge? Many thanks!

    1. Oh I am http://mividavegan.wordpress.com and for some reason, when I use this as my "reply as", I get a message saying that I am using illegal characters.

    2. For the prompt, you can either visit the blog every day to see the post (the prompt for Dec 1 is this post).

      If you'd like to get the prompt as an email, you can enter your email at the top "Follow By Email" box at the top right of the website.

      For the reply as issue, maybe check Blogger Help. I haven't encountered that before.
