Yesterday I had the brilliant idea that I would join the crowd of bloggers who put up a photo post for Wordless Wednesday. Sounded like an easy way to show off a photo or two or three without feeling obligated to add a story. But I already posted yesterday, so that will wait. So I tried to think of a cutesy title for a post that could indicate I was showing something unique on Thursdays. I even did a search online for T adjectives, something to go with Thursday. Then it came to me just as I was going to sleep. Throwback Thursday!
So because I’m that kind of person, I thought, hmm, I’ll do a web search on that and see how it’s being used. Here’s what I found:
If you use Instagram or Twitter, you’ve probably seen or used the hashtag #throwbackthursday, or #tbt, once or twice (or a million times). It rose to such infamy that along came #flashbackfriday so people would have an excuse to post old pictures two days a week instead of one. It’s so popular that there are over 40 million pictures tagged with #tbt on Instagram, another nearly 23 million with #throwbackthursday and there are even over 135,000 hilariously tagged with #throwbackthursdayy.
