A couple of weeks ago, I asked for input as to my new profile picture on this blog and elsewhere across the socialmediaverse. The crowd has spoken, a $74 donation has been made to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and it looks like I’m now due to have photographic alignment with the blog name:
Part of the inspiration for this exercise was that I’ve had the experience before of knowing what someone looks like as I’ve gotten to know them digitally solely based on a single picture…and then been surprised in some way by their appearance when I actually meet them in person. This came up a couple of times at eMetrics in San Francisco. So, in addition to changing my standard profile picture, I’ve also added a collage of photos to my About page. The challenge there is that I’m an amateur photographer, so am more often behind the camera than in front of it. That made for slim pickin’s on the photo front, but there’s enough there that you can get a better sense o’ me, should you care to have that!
