How Important Is It To Have Your Picture On Your Blog?
To Mugshot or Not To Mugshot? – That is the Mugshot
I suspect it is important to add a photo of yourself to your blog, especially if you’re a model or something super like that. So should ‘regular Joes’ stick a mugshot on our blogs? Here’s my thoughts on the subject for what it’s worth.
- All the top bloggers do it so there must be something behind it (Darren Rowse, Yaro Starak are two)
- People recognize you after a while and may be more inclined to stop and read your posts
- Stalkers have something to…eh…focus on!? – Hey, stalkers are people too!
I recently added a photo of myself to the header image of my blog because it was quick and easy to do. I haven’t the time to customise the entire site at the moment (I’m lucky if I find the time to get even a couple of posts out a week!). So it’s a little bit of easy customisation, I wonder will anyone even notice, or care?
How To Put A Face On Blogging
If you’re new to blogging and if your blog is hosted with WordPress, rather than a private server, and you haven’t customized it so far, why not do the same? In your WordPress Dashboard go click the ‘Presentation‘ button and then click ‘Custom Image Header‘, the rest is a piece of cake, you’ll figure it out.
Put your photo in your header image and comment this post with your URL! There’s no time limit. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
