Introducing Picturesday!

   Hello everyone!  In an effort to make my blog more interactive and have come up with Picturesday - a day for your own pictures to be featured on my blog!  I've been inspired by how many followers I have that create really nice content.  This is obviously in the trial stages and subject to changes, but here is what I have come up with so far:

  • Picturesday will happen every other Thursday - my first Picturesday will happen on January 5th, 2012!
  • This is open to anyone who follows my blog via GFC.
  • I will either announce a theme for the upcoming Picturesday or declare it freestyle - your submissions should follow my guidelines.
  • Submit one URL to a web-hosted photo and a few sentences about the picture.  Also include a link to your own blog, twitter, shop, etc!  Submissions may be made via the Kontactr widget in the lower-right corner of my blog.

   I will making another post soon that will answer more questions about the specifics and "rules" of Picturesday.  Until then please feel free to ask questions (that maybe I haven't thought of!) and make suggestions.  If you have any interest in participating please leave a comment saying so~

   If Picturesday is successful enough I think it would even be fun to have little contests (readers could vote for their favorite photo) and/or incorporate it into giveaways.  Would anyone like to see something like this?

   To start things off, here is the theme for the FIRST EVER Picturesday on Elle-Hime!

"It Sparkles!"
to be featured on January 5th, 2012

   Submit a photo of something beauty-related that is glittery, blinged-out or otherwise constructed of highly-refractive materials.  It can be an accessory you use, your favorite glittery make-up look, or a sparkling manicure... pretty much anything goes for this one!

   Alright, so you might want to hold off on flooding me with photos tonight, because as I said *stayed tuned* for more specifics tomorrow!  I just wanted to get this idea out there and hear some thoughts before I type all my "great ideas" up, haha.  =)

  3. I love this idea! Hopefully I'll get around to a Zoya polish for your second Picturesday! Do the pictures have to be ones that we haven't featured on our own blogs, or can they be from manis that we have posted to our blogs? :D
