Recognize this photo? Did you know it was a picture of me? Maybe not. It’s a lot bigger here than it is over there on the side bar.
I’ve been at this blogging thing for almost 6 years (first post was back on Thanksgiving 2009) and commenting a little bit longer. When I set up my account to comment on blogs, I chose a picture that was me, but so small you couldn’t recognize me (somehow I thought I would be stalked or something!). Plus it was a picture with my sweetie (taken when we were driving out to
Virginia in Aug 2008—I believe that’s
the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance). Now
that I’m published, I’m wondering if it’s time to change my About Me photo on Blogger.
I know some people change their photo to match the holidays (hello, Ivy!). On Facebook, profile photos get changed all the time. I don’t do that. What you see is what’s been there since I created the account.
These are the photos I have with my other social media sites:
(taken 4/3/10 in Pittsburgh at the old Igloo -- that's my daughter next to me)
(taken 9/1/08 in Jamestown, VA).
Actually, only my head shows up there. Gravatar only lets you use a portion of the picture.

(taken 12/13/09 at a Christmas dinner)
I’m using the cover to Blind Temptation as my profile photo on my Facebook author page, and I recently set up an Instagram account, but haven’t decided on anything yet.
So… Give me your opinion. Should I find a more recent picture? Use one from my other social media sites? Have a professional photo taken? Or just leave my Blogger photo alone?
Have a fun Friday the 13th and a great weekend. I plan on it. I’ve got a football game to go to tomorrow!
