The "Big" Announcement...

So I fear that by giving a heads-up for the announcement that I may disappoint some of you with what it is. But I admit-I continue to be excited about this, and I can only hope that you all will be too! A big thanks to My Reality for planting the seed to extend this little venture...she will be a big help in keeping this project running smoothly.

Without further adieu, I would like to announce that:

We are resurrecting Mortimer.




There was such an overwhelming response to memories that you all had of the original Pic.ture Pag.es, that we thought: Why not bring it back in our own modified, modern version!? So Happy Birthday, Mortimer! You are born again!

If you will direct your eyes to the right hand side of the page, you will see a new visual added. This nifty little button will allow you to view the outer shell of what the new and improved PP looks like. However, you will notice that you must subscribe in order to see the contents within. Let me stress: this is not a secret society or anything. This is simply for all the members protection-this will allow anyone who wants to join to post more personal pictures (don't think dirty here folks) but if you wish to reveal a picture of your face/significant other/whatever, that you don't necessarily want Joe Schmoe to stumble across when he/she finds your blog, then this will be the perfect place to post it!

Once you enter your email address to subscribe, myself or My Reality will accept your membership and you post your Picture Pages! It is easy to navigate, you can still comment on posts (it's just called "discuss" on this page) and if you get stuck there is a Help button and of course me or MR to ask!

AND there will be a bi-weekly picture challenge! What a cool way to use another part of our brains while most of us are waiting through that dreaded bi-weekly wait! MR and I will come up with the first couple rounds of challenges, and then we will open it up to suggestions. The picture challenge will post every 2 weeks on the group page, and everyone will be notified by email-and you can always see the post on the group page as well. If you don't get to participate every 2 weeks, no biggie! Everyone gets busy, so you will not be kicked out if you are not posting!

Feel free to move your pic pages over to this new page, or just use it for future picture challenges. Here are a few of the requests I received, and the rest are in the group page--I did get requests for more personal pics, and I will let Mortimer share those!

The Momcaster asked for a beach picture. This is a sunset view from my g'parents beach house that we visited over Mem.orial Day weekend. I feel so lucky that I have grown up seeing these sunsets every summer. We go out in the early morning when the tide is low and search for shells-its one of my favorite things to do.

For the Flavor asked for the contents of my purse. To the left you have a pouch that my best friend gave me in 7th grade--it holds my i.pod and fertility stone from Lara. Then you've got my business card holder, mini calendar/check book, then my wallet, my work keys, my planner (cannot live without this) my cosmetic bag-must haves are Niv.ea face cream and hand sanitizer.


And Fertilize Me asked for a picture of my feet in the sand...we went to the beach one morning and it was low tide--so this picture is actually taken pretty far out in the ocean on a sand bar.



So come on over and visit Mortimer and see the rest of the picture requests. Post your own! And don't forget to get those cameras ready for the picture challenge!

  8. Those are great! I want to see a pic of the inside of your fridge/freezer.

    In my opinion, those contents reveal more about you than just about anything else.

  17. What a fun idea! I'm not a big fan of the entire world seeing personal photos - (my dad was a police officer and I'm paranoid what can I say?) but this really makes a difference!

There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
