Throwback Thursday

It’s Throwback Thursday!  Staring at my blank computer screen this morning, I realized I had no idea how this popular meme got started so I did some digging.

Sports Illustrated magazine attributes the first use of Throwback Thursday to a sneaker blog named “Nice Kicks.”  In 2006, the blog started posting pictures of old basketball shoes and titled them Throwback Thursday.  The popularity of the pictures went viral with the hashtag #TBT and a meme was born.

While #TBT is used across social media, it is arguably most popular on Instagram where according to Wikipedia it has been used more than 200 million times!

If you don’t like posting your old pictures using #TBT, maybe you’d like to participate in the similarly themed Flashback Friday (#FBF)?  Or if you want to get off memory lane entirely, how about a post for #MondayMotivation with an inspirational quote or story to get the week off to a good start.

I’m in the spirit of #TBT so here’s my throwback to 2008:
