Oh, that so-called selfie... In other words the self-portrait, a picture of yourself, the (flattering) mugshot.
How do you go about it though, if you are a blogger as well as a shy person?
Shy as in not very confident in front of the camera... and maybe you are even a little vain. Shy and vain in the same time? Contradiction yes, but could it be explained easily like this: you think you are ugly...? Wait, actually you think you are all right but deep down you are afraid that you are ugly. Anyway, I seem to go through a lot of cringing every time when it comes to taking pictures of me, and it shows in the outcome.
So what's this all about? It's not about social media and selfies or such. It's about this blog's About page. And how I seem to have settled on a (kind of a) solution to include a selfie to give a face to this blog.
Because I know that it's nice to see the face behind the words. Hopefully it's still so, even if that face is from such a long time ago, it can be easily called at least retro...
While I'm trying to achieve a cringe-free picture of myself that is a bit more right now to put on here, I recommend Pia's post which is right on topic. Also have a look at Bee's selfie which is a wonderfully gorgeous simple snap - I want to be able to face the camera like that (and I want those glasses)!
How about you, do you find sharing photos of yourself on your blog or online easy?
