BLIP POSTS TOGETHER FOREVER 18th MARCH...

Who remembers Blip together from 2010???

Wouldn't it be kinda awesome if we all did a blip together kind of shot say... Tomorrow 18TH MARCH and let the Blipfoto team know... We stand together in what has been created... What we have all shared... Our support for the Blipfoto team... that we want it to be saved! It's a visual/photo site so let's make our feelings VISUAL! (sahfotoblip)

So to summarise...

We all post a blip/ Selfie standing in the 2010 blip together stance (standing up... arms outstretched as if we are to link with someone either side of us)

We tag #blipfotoforever

Have a piece of paper with the tag in it

LETS FLOOD BLIPFOTO TOMMORROW WITH OUR BLIP TOGETHER BLIPS AND SHOW OUR SOLIDARITY!!

That's a plan, best get people to spread the word today, so that as many as possibly can join in ...

Great idea! Remind folk that the photos were square and the hands had to meet at the half-way point either side.

what does it mean to "have a piece of paper with the tag in it"? do we hold a poster with those words? need just a tad more info and Im ready to pass this on. It's only the 17th here, so we have time!

Brilliant - was just looking at my (first time round) Bliptogether shots. Can I echo clickychick's point - they need to be square and with hands at the edge of the shot (ie crop it) or we just won't quite be holding hands!

Thanks sahfotoblip - maybe edit your opening post so that everyone who sees this sees the 'square photo' instruction?

@sahfotoblip: oh, err, good point. No idea! I looked at a question I'd posted and couldn't see any way to edit it. Maybe do a reply with all the relevant 'rules' (square, hands half-way up, tag, paper pinned to chest with tag) and we'll all upvote it a million times so it always sits at the top? Any other rules?

Thanks Soob for this suggestion.

'Rules' for the blip together blip 18th March

  • To be posted on 18th March time to suit as long as it is during March 18th UK time.

  • Photo has to be cropped to square before posting

  • Arms have to be half way up in the photo

  • Tag #blipfotoforever

  • Piece of paper (location your choice) with the tag on so that we can have the tag visual and make our message clear.

  • Make it individual too

Excellent idea......though I might have to resort to taking a pic of my 'original' on the computer screen, I won't have anyone to hold the camera and I haven't got a tripod......just don't 'report' me if I do;-)

Wait--March 18th UK time? is that right now? I was all set to go til you added that note. What day is it? When is tomorrow? I don't even understand daylight savings time, so I need some help here. Sorry.

Only problem is that I fell off my bike today and my face is a right mess. I don't think I'll be able to open my left eye tomorrow so a selfie was not what I had in mind for a week or two!

But what the heck! If it helps Blip I'm up for it.

I think someone needs to issue a press release from us, the users, so we get as much publicity as possible. The publicity already in the Scottish papers and on the BBC website as well as concerted action from the users can only improve the chances of a buyer taking it on.

Can we please be a bit lenient with the UK time bit? I mean, I will try and I'm only 5 hours behind, but there are many Blippers in other timezones as well.

@soozaday I have posted on your blip for yesterday the 16th. Being in America if you post sometime between breakfast and lunch on the Wednesday the 18th you will have it spot on!

@loosecanon hi if you are on Facebook there is a blipfoto friends page and someone on there is contacting media apparently. If we can show the liquidators and any potential buyers its worth saving... lets do it.

Yes please! I'm not too technical - how do I share a link to this in my entry today? I'm also going to resort to taking a photo of the screen above as my photo for today.

Hands around the Blipworld - how symbolic is that for what we think of our lovely community?
