Having my picture taken makes me uncomfortable and it shows. My kids often say, "Smile Mom...and not your fake smile!"
Looking at pictures of my Grandma & Grandpa, I can't find one where they are looking straight at the camera. Instead, they are looking off in the distance, as if they too, were uncomfortable with saying 'cheese'. Maybe its genetic.
The handful of blogs I visit regularly entertain, inspire, make me laugh, and they all post pictures of themselves while doing the things they write about. It definitely makes a connection--kinda like you know them personally.
I hale from a generation that doesn't always understand this need to paste pictures of one's self all over the internet. I love to see pictures of others, but me? Not so much.
But then I have a blog.
A blog that's meant to connect with other like-minded souls and promote my small business. It's part of the deal to post a picture and say 'Hi!'
So, here I am, saying "Hello, this is me, and, by the way, I make pillows and am so glad you are here! It's very nice to meet you."
