Story Submission

We are pleased to gather your stories and photos for BEFORE YOU WERE HOT. We will definitely be honored to post your stories and share them to the other members of our community.

To get started, simply email your information to [email protected] Here is a list of the things that you need to share with us:

Age at which picture was taken:
A little bit about your photo (the when, where, why and how? Naming brands or trends from the time is encouraged):

Some other stuff:

  • We encourage you to send in an “after” photo.
  • Needless to say, these photos should be of you, but if they aren’t, please indicate that (and ideally, get permission from the person whose photo you’re submitting!).
  • Picture quality is key. Example: a photocopy of your 7th grade school portrait that you scanned? BAD. So please send in a photo of good quality and resolution.
  • We will use first names only, but if you want us to link to your blog, twitter, facebook or other internet-style property, just let us know!

Now for a Mom Moment: BEFORE YOU WERE HOT is a laugh-at-ourselves concept, but we will be moderating for unnecessarily jerky comments. BYWH is about building a brother/sisterhood of awkward moments in life, so don’t be mean and keep it clean.

The fine print: reserves the right to publish your submitted images at our own discretion. We also reserve the right to use and modify submissions as standard procedure. When you submit to, you are granting us the right to a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully sub-licensable, exclusive right to use, reproduce, modify, translate, adapt, publish, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display, and delete such content in other works in any form, media or technology now known or hereafter developed.
