One recurring SOBCon07 item (issue?) has been this question: to add or not to add a picture of yourself on your blog. And the opinions vary (but of course ;-))
Both the Stop/Start and Kiss2 blog have been 'picture-less' till now. For various reasons. The
best most obvious reason (for me) is the fact I never really feel 'like my picture', plus (as I mentioned over at Adam - Monk at Work - Kayce post on this subject we were told as children/teenagers/young adults that showing off was no good for anything. Do/be normal, than you're showy enough.
But then came SOBCon07 and pictures of all the bloggers I know (from the pictures on their blogs) appeared everywhere and it was great fun (a sport even) to recognise who's who. And then the conversation about pictures on blogs started. And I kept pondering. And made a decision.
That's me (left ;-)) on the most 'natural' picture I could find in my files. Enjoying myself enormously during a reunion of Ton's (right) family last December in our home town Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands.(Followed by a reunion of my 'extended with step-family' own family the day after)
Ton's sister Lia (we have a very international family - she lives in Berlin, my own brother lives in Paris, we live in the UK) had come up with this lovely idea to create, well, enjoyment pictures of every part of the family. All Ton's sisters (3) with their family and his only brother with his family were 'framed' like this. (Every time I show these pictures to others they all 'borough' the idea for their own family, so another 'meme' started?)
For the blog I've cropped the picture a bit, see top left of this blog and somewhere halfway on the right on the Kiss2 blog.
So, that's me. Hope everyone is happy now ;-)
