a picture is worth...

kellya put some cute pics of herself on her own blog. i know!! what a strange concept!!

so, i was looking for a picture of myself to put on my blog, and was startled to realize i don't have any. (ok, not startled really, because a) i take all of the pictures 'round here; b) i'm not fond of any pictures of me taken in the past, oh, 10 years or so, and c) i promptly delete all of the pictures taken of me!)

i know some of you are in the same boat. or, maybe some of you are putting up 'older' photos because you suffer from any of the three problems listed above.

how about a challenge? are you up for it?? let's have a self-portrait tuesday!! the rules are very simple:

1) over the next 72 hours, take a picture of yourself doing something you love (or have someone else take your picture)
2) post it on your blog on tuesday, 2/20 (fat tuesday... no pun intended!!)
2) label it self-portrait tuesday

easy enough, right? i can't wait to see you!

Yikes! Am I off the hook since I just posted pictures?

I totally have this problem. I am always behind the camera and I hate any and all pictures of me. But I am up for the challenge! (I've always kind of wanted to participate in Self-Portrait Tuesday.)

I'm always behind the camera too, but have occasionally attempted some self-portraits for the sake of blogging (though both were ridiculous). I love this idea and am so glad you're bringing it to our blogging community.

this sounds like a great challenge so I will try and abide...no guarantees I am in the same boat as many of you....so 72 hours......

I'm a day late, but I'm in! Although I'll be honest, I take a lot of self-portraits, I'm a little vain!! Thanks for this great idea!
