GPOYW = (Self-Portraits) – (Narcissism)

Admit it: You desperately want to post photos of yourself, but you’re afraid to look vain.

Fear not, friend.

Four years ago, Noah showed the world that self-portraits can be profound.

Today, Tumblr users rock the self-portrait with Gratuitous Picture of Yourself Wednesday (GPOYW).

It’s simple. Stand and flail your arms by yourself — you’re loco. Do it with 1000 others in a crowded stadium — it’s the wave. GPOYW is an internet-wide wave for self-portraits.

Add a quick caption (about a pickle <3, your dad, your doo) — and you’ve preserved this moment in your life.

It’s okay to post a picture of yourself. On Wednesdays.
