Me, My Selfie and I

On New Year's day we had a few friends over to watch football. "Watching football" for me usually entails sitting on the couch reading magazines and perusing social media. So, as per usual, I scrolled Instagram while wedged in between my husband and one of our friends last Thursday. During a commercial break one of the guys glanced over my shoulder to see Arielle of Something Navy blog-fame posing in her OOTD (outfit of the day) on Instagram. The next thing I knew, the guys were literally passing around my phone, checking out this blogger. (She is quite attractive, if I do say so myself.) I explained that Arielle has a huge following and that she does many collaborations with fashion and beauty brands. The guys were surprised to hear that she gets tons on social media attention just for posting fabulous photos of herself in different outfits.

In the the past I've been hesitant to post pics of myself on my blogs; I've been happy to let my writing do the talking. While at first it seemed too private to share photos of me, I'm already sharing personal details, so why not put a face to my voice? Inspired by brave bloggers like Arielle, I'm going to start sharing more of me.

P.S. Would you buy a selfie stick?
