For a while now I’ve been been trying to decide what this blog should look like. I was pretty clueless when I started it. I read a bunch of blogs, but I was so focussed on what they said, the writing, that it didn’t occur to me that they had a bunch of different layouts and that the choices were different on blogspot, wordpress, etc. When I decided to take the leap I picked the one I was most familiar with because a couple of friends had blogs here and then picked a pretty generic template because I liked the color scheme.
It hadn’t occurred to me that I should put more thought into it. Not until I started to get comments telling me to add graphics and pics and change things up. I just wanted to write. Not learn html or take up a new hobby. Anyway…
I thought a lot about whether or not I wanted to have a pic of myself out here in cyberspace, as this is anonymous. And if I had one, what type. Eventually I decided to just go for it. I thought of the opening of SATC
with the pic of Carrie/SJP passing by on the bus in her “naked dress” and I decided that I would just skip the dress and be naked. Or almost naked, as I wanted to try to make it still SFW (that’s suitable for work for those of you who don’t read occasionally inappropriate blogs).
I asked one of my favorite men on the planet to take the pic (pics, as we shot over a hundred that night). He and I dated for a few months a couple of years ago and we made a lousy couple. We just weren’t meant to be romantically involved. We were meant to be friends. And he is a great friend. He made it easy for me to make an ass of myself, posing in lingerie and silly props (There were props! I’ll use more of the pics later on.).
Please let me know what you think. Is it too racy? Do I look ridiculous? Is it NSFW (not suitable for work)? I know a lot of people read this blog at their cubicles. I’ll kill the pic if it means losing readers.
