I wonder...

So, I'm looking all over the blogosphere. Some folks have photos of themselves in their profiles, some do not. I wonder, should I have a photo of myself? In my profile. I've done it already with my kids. Will it demystify the Wild Child?

Then I start contemplating the photo. My Facebook photo is a couple years old. I haven't even gotten a picture of my new hair cut (which is getting much older by the minute. I think I got this one back in December and I'm still trying to figure out how to wear it) to share with one of my friends back in Chicagoland, who had specifically asked for it.

But I see a lot of smiling faces looking back at me in the comments sections of the various blogs I visit. Everyone looks very friendly. I suppose you would like it if I added my friendly face? I don't know. The whole getting a good photo might be tricky. I'd feel obliged to wear the right shirt and the right makeup and make sure my hair is decent. It seems like a lot of work suddenly. Maybe Easter, maybe I can get a good picture then. We dress up and look nice, so it might work.

I will have to continue to ponder. Meanwhile, there are followers of this blog who already know my crazy mug and I don't think they'd care one way or another.

Keep the mystique and post an old yearbook picture. But, I agree, it's always nice to see the real ""you."

Heh, well I spot pics all the time, but I use a silhouette for the profile pic. This way it's me yet still mysterious!

My Mom dislikes my profile pic. She said it is too close-up. Since apparently I'm the only person who knows how to operate a camera around here, that's the best I can do, but I would like to change mine too.

I guess that wasn't very helpful now was it? Even if it's not your profile pic, it would be nice to see an occassional photo of The Wild Child.

Aliceson, I love your profile pic! I think it makes you look really tall. I was shocked to find out you were just barely above 5'1". LOL I have no idea why I thought that.

I'm thinking maybe the occasional post with a slipped in family pic that also features me, that might be a good compromise. I'll make sure it is a friendly smiling face.

First of all thank you for following my blog. I have no idea why I chose a turtle for my profile pic - I just am never happy with any photos of myself. I like the mystique but every now and then I do slip in a family photo.
