Speaking of Blog Puberty…You Do NOT Want To Miss This Post.d

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:  

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.

    Cuteeeee pic of YOU! IDK who anyone else is LOL!!!!!

  • sturdydesign 25.01.2013 at 18:28

    This is hilarious! I would have totally guessed “U” as being Kate of Centsational Girl because of the looking out of the corner of her eyes like she does in every single picture I’ve ever seen of her! Alas, Centsational Girl is not one of the choices.
    I think I know which one is Miss Mustardseed but I’ve no idea on the others.

    This is so hard! I was curious about that old lady on letter V. Then I thought “maybe this is not an old lady”….. lol….I’m totally confused. Oh please tell me I’m not the only one seeing that!

    I spy baby Mandi! So cute!

    Okay, I spent way too long trying to enter this. Better go attend to my children. But I have to say, when I first read your “blog puberty” post (great one, by the way) I was pretty sure you got your picture ideas from MY ninth grade picture,, but now I’m glad to see I wasn’t the only one with awesome glasses. (Me and Jennifer Garner, that is.)

    Holy crud.

    I’m not getting THAT hour back. I started all, “I got this…” and tried to remember face recognition stuff from every investigative show I’ve ever seen. Then I ended with my eyes dry, my kids needing attention and a feeling of, “awcrapwhatever.”

    Kind of how the SAT’s went.

    This has to be the greatest blog contest E-VER!

  • Laura Lynn 25.01.2013 at 22:25

    I totally got E. without even looking at the names because she still looks the same. Does that girl ever age? Anyway, the rest I don’t know and it’ll take way too long. Someone will figure it out!

  • Nat 27.01.2013 at 03:02

    I can pick out a few…YOU for sure! Super cute!

  • MindySchaper 27.01.2013 at 03:53

    Really funny contest… I can’t pick out anyone unfortunately… :(

    I think this kind of a blog must rank higher in the search engines. I also subscribed to your RSS feed.
