I started growing my yeard (year long beard) officially on September 16th, 2015. I recently decided to post a picture of my beard growing each week. Unfortunately, I did not think of this at the start so I will have to find some pictures to fill in the earlier dates.
2017 Update - The growing was a success, I ended up with a healthy beard as seen below. I recommend all guys try growing the yeard, it was well worth it in my opinion.
