5 Reasons You Should Post Photographs Of Yourself On Your Blog.

5 Reasons You Should Post Photographs Of Yourself On Your Blog.

Photographs of yourself, daunting isn’t it?

I never thought it was important to put photographs of yourself on your blog. The whole idea of posting images of myself came across daunting and I just had an overwhelming fear that people would simply just think that I was vain, when that’s far from the truth. The same applied for my Instagram.

Photographs of yourself

Over the last couple of week’s my boyfriend, partner, fiancée, whatever we’re gonna call him has been my photographer. He’s not great at it but he is learning fast (he has a GREAT teacher!). He’s just started creating his own blog so has needed photographs of himself too, so we made a deal. ” You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” type of deal.

Usually I am extremely picky with the images that I share with the internet of myself, for a few years my Instagram lacked photographs of me and when I did upload a selfie on the odd occasion it would day’s later be deleted. I was too worried that people would judge my face or make remarks about how often I uploaded selfies.

Just like that, something switched over night. (I think I’d been building myself up for it for a while). One morning I just woke up with a completely different mindset. I was always envious of other bloggers who were brave enough to put photographs of themselves on their blog, envious but completely inspired by their confidence. My blog lacked something they all had and that was photographs of themselves.

So, long story short I did it. My personal photographer (The Arrogant Beard) worked hard and got me some photographs I was happy with to post to my social media and blog. Since then my blog has felt different, my whole approach to my blog has changed.

 5 reasons to show your beautiful face on your blog

  1. You are your brand. 
  2. It helps your readers engage with you better.
  3. It will boost your confidence not only online but in real life too!
  4. You’ll inspire other shy bloggers to feel confident enough to show their face too.
  5. It’s great fun!

Your pictures don’t have to be of outstanding quality. They can literally be selfies; anything so that the reader can engage with you more by knowing that the person behind the post is real. At first it’s going to feel a little bit strange and unfamiliar if you’re not used to it, but you soon warm up and you’ll be a pro model before you know it.

A Damp Autumn Walk & Why Looking After My Little Brother Has Made Me Realise I Am Not Ready For Kids.

A Damp Autumn Walk & Why Looking After My Little Brother Has Made Me Realise I Am Not Ready For Kids.

 Happy Monday. I love nothing more than looking after my youngest Lil bro after all-time with family is precious, so when I get to pair looking after him as well as embarking on an autumnal walk around the local park you can imagine how happy I am.
Elijah is one of the most intelligent children have ever met, meaning he has to constantly be busy doing or watching something, soaking up every little detail of whatever it is he is doing or watching & he has a memory of an elephant. So we decided that today, we would go on a walk around the park and find some squirrels. We found a lot of squirrels, none of them wanted to really play or say hello until we were about to venture home, we met a very friendly lil guy and we named him Dave.
Little humans fascinate me on all levels, Eli more than others and not just because he is my brother, none of my other brothers have complimented me on my lipstick “your lipstick is beautiful.”, held my face and said ”you’re so cute Shannie!” He has such a lovely heart.
So, you’re probably wondering why I’m not ready for children?
Well, as much as it’s a blessing to see his face twice a week, I am absolutely shattered when I’ve spent the day with him and when I get home there’s nothing better than being able to shut yourself off completely from the world take an hour long bath and just chill out without the worry of little people needing you for something or other.
At this moment in time, I love spending time on my own. Something I used to hate, however, it’s the time I love the most now. It’s the time I can do what I want without any interruptions, like working on my blogs, doing my coursework or even doing absolutely nothing, so as much as it is lovely to look after the little tykes, it’s nice to be able to give them back to their parents!
I hope you have all had a wonderful Monday and that the rest of your week is full of positivity.

Until next time!
