BlogHer is upon us. Less then four weeks people!
Here is my first tip for the newbies out there. (You know, since I’ve been a grand total of once so clearly I know what I’m talking about) You know that picture you have of yourself up on twitter? The one where you look all glamorous and put together, no shine on your nose, not a hair out of place, no detectable wrinkles? Yah, you know the one. I get it, we all try and put our best face forward when we are tweeting to the world right? Well that’s fine and dandy BUT if that picture of you was taken in say 1993 and your hair at that point was more blonde then grey, or you were say 50 pounds lighter? It might be time to consider putting up a picture of your true self. Now I’m not saying roll out of bed with no make-up on and snap a shot of you at your least attractive. I’m just saying enough with the lying! I can’t tell you how many people last year said to me “You look so much like your twitter picture” To which I had two reactions. Is that a bad thing? and Duh, aren’t you supposed to? Might as well leave that stupid egg up there if you are going to lie about who you are.
So you want people to say hello, give you a big hug, or just know who the hell you are? Then dig into those photo archives, pick something slightly between this…
…but that speaks the truth! Trust me, most bloggers don’t really give a crap what you look like anyway! They just want to meet the face behind the voice.
Oh and if you see me there, c’mon over and say Hello! I can’t wait to meet you!
