I’ve been thinking about changing my avatar.
(aside: an avatar is the tiny photo next to my comments, tweets and in most of my bios for my freelance work.)
I like it mostly because I’m wearing my pajamas in my headshot and that makes me laugh.
However, I’ve been told to change my bio picture because 1) it doesn’t look like me and 2) as one person put it bluntly, I’m prettier than my picture and I should show that off.
I think it was a compliment. I also think it looks like me so I’m not sure how much of a compliment.
The first time I tried to change my avatar, I took this picture.
(aside: I miss my short hair.)
For the most recent avatar change attempt, I took this picture.
While I would like to look beautiful and be a good mom and wife, it’s clearly impossible. My only hope is to stay anonymous in my pajamas. Well-played neglected family. Well-played.
