Every now and then I like to update my photo I have on social media. My hair style changes, it’s longer or shorter or my face has changed with a few more laugh lines. Hee hee, laugh lines, yeah right.
But the real truth is that I’m rarely put together enough to warrant taking a selfie. Rarely do I have days that I actually wash, dry and style my hair, apply make-up and put on a semi-decent looking outfit. All at the same time! So when I do AND I have time, I’ll try snapping a selfie to update my social media accounts.
When I say I snap a selfie, it really means I snap about 50 selfies to get one that I think looks halfway decent.
I like to try taking them from different angles to see what looks best. I find selfies kind of difficult. I usually hold the camera out and just move it around and snap. Here’s a few that didn’t make the cut.
What the heck is that bottom right one about? When do I ever look like that? Lol.
This weekend I was actually put together enough and took that(those) selfie(s), since my current photo was about a year old. Selfies are such a weird thing, especially when you’re the type of person that really doesn’t like having your photo taken. And then you go and post them on your blog. Contradictory, I know.
When you change your photo on Facebook, it goes into your feed. (Maybe you can change that, but I haven’t taken the time to look.) Then everyone comments on your photo. Of course, I choose a photo that I think looks alright, but I’m not seeking compliments. But that’s what you get. Not that I don’t appreciate nice comments.
So here’s my selfie from the weekend.
No compliments required.
But please, no negative comments either, I’m not seeking them either. Ha ha ha.
Oh, how times are changing and the world of selfies.
Do you take your own social media photos or do you have someone else take them?
Thank you, Great Spirit.
