The Easy How-to for Visible Monday Link-Up!

Welcome to Visible Monday! I invite you all to participate, it’s easy and a lot of fun.
What is it?

Visible Monday started as a response to several posts about feeling like the Invisible Woman (here, and here, for a start). We came up with the idea of a “Visible Day” for us bloggers, in which we post an outfit, accessory, lipstick color, hairstyle, etc., that especially expresses our Joy of Being (Physically) Visible.

Several other bloggers expressed interest in joining a Visible Monday series. We link to each other’s posts and trade comments, if we like, to help promote the gloriously Visible Woman.

How do I play?

The guidelines are so simple!

  1. Any Monday, whoever wants to can join in! Just do a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.
  2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post.
  3. Go to my Visible Monday post for that Monday and click on this cute little link at the bottom of the gallery:
In the “Next Step” you crop the pic (easy tool), and you’re done!

If only three or four of us participate, that’s OK! It’s not about numbers but about sharing some positive images of grown-up women. About feeling proud of our physical selves as well as our life accomplishments.

Can I grab one of those nifty badges for my sidebar?

You betcha! Just copy the HTML below and paste it into your sidebar (as a gadget or widget, depending on your blog software).

<a href=””> <img alt=”Join us! Click the Spotlight” height=”182″ id=”Image1_img” src=””></a>

You’ll get a badge that looks like this:

  1. Patti, thanks for sharing, what a great idea, I want to do a visible monday. I just found your blog.
    A bit about me. I am brazilian, over 50, living in U.S for a long time. I teach nursing. Love to sew, exercise, and dance. Married, no children, cats, or dogs. Main reason: too old for the first, live part time in Hawaii for the second and third. Oh! Yeah, I joke that if I want, I can go out to the mailbox wearing my birthday suit and no one will notice or care. Besiders, the police is too busy anyway.

  2. Wow, great idea! I'm part of a plus size group blogging group in Australia. I love the weekly fashion challenges set by the organiser, but as I'm a woman in her early forties, in a group of mostly 20-somethings, occasionally I feel a little out of place. Really looking forward to joining in Visible Monday.

  3. Patti, just came across VM-love the idea and will connect next time. Thanks for the opportunity! Sabina
