I am just catching up with the decor and design blog postings, as I have been distracted and detached lately. I subscribe to a few faves, and Mrs. Blandings posted this photo of herself (on the left), and Heather of Habitually Chic. They met on the Inter Net, and Heather visited Kansas City, where Mrs. Blandings lives, and they got together and made a festive time of it HERE
Many commented on how adorable they both look. Indeed they are just what you would think authors of blogs to do with design, decor, and style would look like.
Does it matter if a blogger is good looking or young or well groomed or stylish in order to have credibility with their readers while making pronouncements on matters of style? Should bloggers hide what they look like? Some ask not to be photographed. As blogs become more important as on line magazines, other media outlets do feature stories on them, and often publish a photo of the face behind the beautiful-to-look-at, and well written blog.
I have so many nice photos, and I thank you all for sending them. Blogs are often a launch point for media recognition, and many photos are in the public domain (mine included). And of course the face and space sites are wildly popular, and have kind of taken the edge off personal revelations at every level.
So many of us work at home either full or part time these days, wearing and working in PJs all day, only pulling ourselves together for a video conference call, or to run errands outside the house. Those are photos we don't have to see LOL!
For fun, I will publish three or four photos of the top design bloggers every week. Would you like me to tell you who the bloginista is, or would you like to guess?
I like having a face to associate the writer with. So many other things are revealed in our blogs, some of it personal, so why not see a photo of who we invite into our homes on daily basis?
