Bloggers Do Animal Print Better

See how Bloggers Do It Better, animal print style…

Last week bloggers were challenged, and they roared back with characteristic ferocity and fabulousness. In case you hadn’t heard, Bloggers Do It Better is a style challenge phenomenon that has taken the blogosphere by storm. Challenge assignments are random, may come at any time, and bloggers have a week to post their looks based on the assignment (usually involving interpreting a current trend).

Instructions for posting your link

We’re using Linky Tools this time around, let’s see how it fares! First, make sure you have a BDIB badge in your sidebar. Second, click the link that says “Click here to enter” and follow the instructions on the page it sends you to. You’ll enter your BLOG NAME under “caption or title” (do NOT enter your personal name or anything else…if it doesn’t have your blog name, it will be deleted, for uniformity, thanks!). You’ll be asked to enter your name and email address, this information is private and will not be shared or sold or anything horrid like that. Lastly, you will be given the option to auto-crop or manual crop your thumbnail image. I recommend you manually crop an image from the web (click Let me crop my own image, and then click From Web). That way you can zoom in on the trend you’re wearing, with the exact image you want to represent your blog.

Update:I’ve had to delete a lot of incorrect entries because people aren’t following directions. :( Make sure you put the title as your blog name, not your post name, real name, etc. Also, don’t submit more than once – it may take a while for your thumbnail to show up for you, but once you submit it’ll be showing up for everyone else! (May want to refresh or clear your browser’s cache) Thanks!

Note: if you’d like to post these fabulous looks on your own blog, you are welcome to do so at any time! Simply click the link above (“Get the code here…”) to get the javascript code that will show the BDIB linkup within your blog post. It is updated in real time.

    First, I just want to say I love your blog! I discovered it a little while ago and added it to my Blogroll!

    Anyway, I am absolutely crazy about animal print – leopard print in particular! I love how they are really chic and trendy, but they are not hard at all to pull off. Thanks for putting this list of blogs together too. I will definitely be visiting some of them. :)

    I just love your challenges! So fun to see everyone’s style! Thanks for hosting :)

  • jenn~the stylish housewife

    i also did not care for the mandatory url linkback. we already have the button on our page permanently and i used to always just link back to the BDIB category url. seems a bit much ….just my two cents.

  • Fashnlvr

    I finally got my link up! Thank you so much for hosting the BDIB!!

  • LocalCeleb

    How fun, I wanna play, let me go figure this out~
