This is me looking as a serious author.
Elisabeth posted a thing about showing yourself on your blog (read it here) and I agree with her when she writes about being more interested in/feel more connected to a blog if you know the author behind it. I don't post pictures of myself very often, simply because I'm the person behind the camera.
The more personal a blog is, the more I kind of "expect" to see the person behind it. If the blog itself is very anonymous I think differently, but still I am always very curious of who I am connecting with.
This is me looking very cool (note: I'm being ironic).
There's (in my opinion) nothing cool about looking grumpy, mean, unsympathetic, ignorant. I am trying to smile more in pictures instead of looking too serious, pictures of people looking content with themselves inspire me much more.
This is better, but I still need to practise!
Then again, you don't have to show your face if you don't want to. Of course!
For me it's a bit like talking to a stranger on the phone (a tiny phobia of mine) though or meeting someone for the first time and they wear sunglasses so I can't see their eyes.
Any thoughts about this?
