I've often pondered whether or not I should ever show my face. At first, I didn't do it because I didn't have a decent picture of myself and no digital camera. That plus the fact that where I worked is basically a haven of computer geeks with nothing better to do than to look up info on employees all day long and what they're saying about the company (I think we had some sort of company loyalty clause in our employment paperwork). And if you had your profile on Match.com, then you were really screwed!
I know alot of people show their faces in their avatar or somewhere in their blog. A few people have seen my mug and the reviews have not been good. I think if I showed my face, the villagers would burn down my blog.
I've thought that if I do it, it would have to be with some sort of momentous event like I ran a marathon or I score a six-figure job or I finally get to hit Ireland & the UK or Andrea Corr / Salma Hayek / Paz Vega / Penelope Cruz / Kirsten Dunst / Monica Belluci / Barbara Mori / etc. will publicly acknowledge my undying, loyal love.
But being anonymous gives you a bit of freedom. A few of my old friends know about my blog and so they know who I am and what I'm about. Not that I'm trying to fool anyone, but sometimes people build up an image of what you are and when they finally see or meet you, it's shattered. With anonymity, I can continue to call 'em like I see 'em with no problems. Sometimes though, I think it would be great to post pics of me in my various travels of journeys from around the world or just over to Wal-Mart for a good ole fashioned mullett hunt.
Has anyone else had this same dilema or have you had any problems with revealing your persona? Give me some insights and maybe you'll each get to experience the horror that is the Devil!!!
