Flashback Alert: Come Guess these DIY Bloggers!!

Jan 25th, 2013

 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.

Here are the blogs to match:

Here are the details (you must be 18 yrs or older to win):

  • Visit the link below where you will be able to enter your guess for each blogger pictured above. (All information will be kept private.)
  • The first person to correctly match all the faces with their blog will win a $300 Lowe’s gift card!
  • If you win, you will be emailed to collect your mailing address. (Then your prize will be mailed to you.)
  • And of course, you will gain bragging rights for being the biggest DIY Blog Fan Ever! Totally RAD, right?!

Best of luck to you, should decide to take on the challenge.

  1. That was hard. i hope i won!!

  2. Dang! I'm sad because that means I didn't win either. I hope I was somewhat close, but there were at least four that were tripping me up, maybe six. That being said, I know which one you are, and my junior high hair is very jealous of YOUR junior high hair :-)

    Thanks for the fun game!

  3. ok, I just have to give you props. This is the most awesome post in all of blogland. So fun to see my friends this way. Thanks for the HUGE smile today :)

  4. I don't have a clue! But I loved looking at all these pix from the past. Glad I'm not the only one with such a "flattering" yearbook photo. Can't wait to see the real match-up.
