Coming up: a blogfest and a blogiversary

WEIRD NEWS: I, yes I, have decided to host my first ever blogfest. I'm calling it the Baby Faces Blogfest, and I'm a little worried I will end up being the only participant, but I figure it's time I bit the bullet and put myself out there, even at risk of public humiliation.

Re: the theme for this blogfest, I know my blog isn't a baby anymore - it's more like a toddler! Here's hoping the terrible twos aren't too bad around here, but I guess it depends on my mood as the new year starts. ;)

What are the requirements?
  1. Between December 2nd and 3rd, post a pic of yourself as a baby, and/or;
  2. Tell us a story about when you were a baby (no doubt you can't quite remember it yourself, but you've probably heard some stories from other members of your family).
You can choose to do one or the other or both, depending on your mood on the day(s). ;)

What the heck's in it for you?
  1. The sheer enjoyment of bragging about how cute you were as a baby?
Also note that on December 2nd when I post for my blogiversary, I will be giving away a little prize (your choice of a book I've selected, or some other book, from the Book Depository). More details about that on the day though.

For now, I leave you with the linky tool on which you can sign up for this awesome blogfest. :)

  2. What a lovely idea! All my kiddie pictures are at my parents' house, but I've got a story or two. How are you defining "baby"? Is three too old? :)

    1. Three is just fine ;) I've got a friend whose kid is turning 3 soon and she still refers to her as "the baby", so there ya go!

    1. Thanks, I think so too :) It might be that I'm biased from looking at seriously cute pics of my niece lately (not that I'll be showing her off :P this is MY day!). Anyway, glad to have you on the list!!

  25. This idea is adorbz - although I surely was not. Hmmm...a while ago I blogged a baby story, I might could use that, with your kind permission. Meanwhile, I'm off to the Twitter! :)

  26. I keep swearing I'm going to stop doing blogfests but you've suckered me into this one. I was so darn cute as a baby how could I resist. Now I hope I can get my scanner to work.
