500 Posts and Two Years Later. Thank You.

By |November 28th, 2010|Uncategorized|

When I wrote my first post two years ago, I had very little knowledge of blogging, but had quite a bit to say. I started writing as a creative outlet as a disgruntled employee crunching numbers on excel sheets and placing re-orders on Hanky Panky thongs.  Originally, I had wanted this blog to be completely anonymous so that I could simply talk about tragic wardrobe malfunctions without suffering any backlash. In reality, I had no idea (and doubted) if anyone was even reading. Writing was just something I really enjoyed and had forgotten how much so.  Then something funny happened.  People would tell me they really liked something I wrote. They started suggesting I write more. People were reading and paying attention to what I wrote.

About a year ago, I wrote a few posts that were much more personal. They were about me. When I did this, people responded. They were the most viewed posts written up to that point.  I realized that I had more to offer than just making fun of ugly outfits and bad hair do’s. WhyDid has grown into something more than I ever could have imagined and I am so thankful to have people reading what I write and actively participating in what I do. Whether you are a loyal fan, friend, stumbled upon the site after Googling cameltoe, or just someone who hates WhyDid and reads it to poke fun, I want to thank you. I couldn’t have done it without you.

That said, I asked you guys to send in photos of your in your favorite outfits. I received some awesome photos, but have narrowed it down to the top five (with a special bonus entry). Now, it’s up to you to vote on your very favorite! The winner will be announced next week.

1. Paulette from New Zealand

2. Lauren from Santa Monica, California

3. Katie from Orlando, Florida

4. Elizabeth (and dapper gentleman friend) from New York, New York

5. Sonja from Los Angeles, California

And a little something extra for you, ladies….

6. Andrew from Toronto, Canada



Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock…

I told you guys it was happening… and we are getting closer and closer to WhyDid’s 500th post!

I’ve only received a few pictures of you in your favorite outfits (very disappointing), so I’ve sweetened the pot and stiffened the competition. Here’s how it’s going down:

  1. You guys are going to send me a picture of you in your very favorite most WhyDid worthy outfit along with your name and the city you live in.
  2. The top three outfits will be chosen and featured on WhyDid’s 500th post.
  3. WhyDid readers will vote on their favorite outfit.
  4. Winner will receive an iPod nano!!

WhyDid shouldn’t be the only one celebrating!

Now… SEND ME YOUR PICTURES!! You’ve got two weeks to get them to me (deadline is November 22, 2010).


Good luck!
