I've got nothing but love and blind jealousy for all of those people who can take a great picture. And I'm also not hitting on anyone, it's just a weird little rant about a trend I've noticed on the blogs.
The last week I've spent a lot of time on blogs. A lot. Seriously I have a huge blog stalking problem.
I've noticed two things:
1) Everyone as a kick ass layout and I need to learn me some HTML
2) Author's pictures.
EVERY AUTHOR IS SUPER CUTE. Seriously they're adorable.
My profile picture is a puma, and I'm assuming no one thinks I'm puma.
Everyone else has a kick ass, super cute profile picture that was probably professionally taken.
This is a problem for me.
1) I'm really cheap and not photogenic at all. I screw up EVERY picture I'm in. So why would I pay a couple of hundred bucks for a picture to have my face all jacked up.
2) I've got all the mental scars of middle school and I feel like I'm the ugliest girl in any room. (yep I went and got all personal on you)
3) It's not fair! Writers are the ONE set of entertainers that it doesn't matter how you look. We could be trolls that were kicked out of the deepest pits of hell, and that's cool, because no one cares what we look like as long as our characters are hot.
I'm fine with that.
Right now I've got a zit on my face that's practically a planet, it's effecting Earth's gravitational pull. It's bad. I'm cool with it, because I'm a writer I don't have to be cute... or do I?
So, bloggers, how did you get your super cute pictures? Do you have awesome photographer friends? Or do you naturally look like the cutest people on the planet? (Not the planet that just formed on my face) Do you think your super cute picture is giving you more blog traffic?
