Oh my word! I have something so fun to share today. One day a bunch of us bloggers started talking about our awkward years and sharing photos of us growing up after we read Mandi’s post on blog puberty. Brittany had a fabulous idea to put them all together and have a contest.
Let’s take a ride in that DeLorean parked outside and go back in time. Back to a time before there was Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. Before chevrons, mercury glass and ombré were hot. And most importantly, before there were blogs!
We’re going back to when these DIY gals were worrying about how high they could get their hair, was there food in their braces and oh no…not another zit! Talking on the phone for hours meant stretching that long spiral cord beyond its limits and tying up the only phone in the house. Common purchases for these DIY gals may have been the latest cassette tape, neon bracelets, a swatch watch and a tube of Clearasil. You wouldn’t catch them dead in the hardware store, totally unheard of to the max!
Are you there yet? Do you see leg warmers or jelly sandals? You’re getting closer…the time machine has stopped so step out of your DeLorean and behold…the time before blogs.
There is so much awesomeness in this one picture it should come with a warning. I kind of want to blow it up to poster size for my office.
Do you recognize any of these popular DIY bloggers? I don’t know how “popular” they were back then. Do you think you could recognize them in High School, Middle School or Elementary School? For sure!
These awkward youngsters will one day be the brains behind your favorite DIY blogs. And they are giving a $300 Lowe’s Gift Card to the first person who can guess which faces match with which DIY blogs.
