I didn’t anticipate that my blog would become well read and that I’d lose my anonymity. I also didn’t expect the cruel comments about my face, hair, and expression that I found on forums and other community sites. On day two of my blog, neither of those things had yet happened, but I did encounter my first “bad face” day. So, I cropped off my head.
Sweater dress, Melton - I’ve sewn one tie back on, but no other malfunctions, yet.
Shrug, INC - this has proven to be a wardrobe staple.
Faux pearl necklace with medallion, Newport News - another past and current fave.
Shoes? – I can’t tell what pair I was wearing, but I’ve probably trashed them by now.
While my blog contains a handful of photos cropped in this way, I’ve shown my face in most entries. I don’t always like my wrinkles, my profile, or my hair, but headless photos are too impersonal. I’m willing to risk recognition and criticism to create a blog that is really “me.”
