Why I dont show my face on my blog |

Today's post is just going to be me chatting about why I don't chose to post pictures of myself on this blog. There are a few reasons why I don't want to put pictures of myself on here and I want to chat to you about them just so you don't think I'm weird, but if you've been reading this blog for a while then you will know, I'm pretty open with you all and my weirdness shines through.

Personality |
My personality is probably the best thing about me and when I say that I'm not doing it to sound vein I just mean that people prefer my personality to my looks. I know none of you are like this and I know you wouldn't say hurtful things but I know that if it was my face on my blog image then I wouldn't get new readers. I don't think I'm particularly pretty and if you put my picture next to a beauty blogger then I'm just going to look like an ogre. I think my blog is basically my personality, everything I am is now on this blog. I don't keep anything from you all (well my face but that's not the point) and I like it that way, at the minute you all read this blog because for some reason some of you like it and that makes me really happy. There's just a part of my mind that thinks if I put an image of myself on my blog, for instance my profile picture. We live in a society that is obsessed with looks and I think you do it without even realising it, we are attracted and drawn to something that looks pretty and I just think that I wouldn't really get people interested. Maybe one day when I feel more confident I will post my picture but for now I just love that this blog is made up of different snippets of my personality and at this moment in time, it works well for me.

People finding me | 
Don't worry I'm not on the run from the police or anything, I just don't want people I know to find this blog. I write some pretty personal stuff on here and for now that's the way I want it to stay. I love the fact that I have followers who haven't met me, they don't have a person to base it on and judge. They cant sit and tell me how I should be writing it and they cant tell me what they would do. Its not that I don't want their opinions, its because I'm scared. I'm so proud of what I have created on here and I know its tiny. I'm one in thousands, probably millions who have a blog but I'm so proud that I have been writing away for nearly a year now without any help from people I know, I have been getting help or advice from my wonderful blogging friends who know what its like.

 If my family found it I know for a fact that my mum and dad would be to interested and would probably read all my posts, they would be quite patronising without realising it and can you imagine how awkward it would be. My sister would probably laugh at me, at the end of the day she started a blog a month after I did and hasn't posted one thing. She would still mock me though, I think then I would delete my blog. If people from school found it then I would be slated for it, I know I would just because I know what they were like when I had to go to school with them. If I want people to know then I tell them and if I have told you about my blog then you can considering yourself a good friend of mine, the fact that I told a few people about this was a massive deal for me but I told them because I knew they wouldn't judge me, I knew they would actually take an interest and I'm glad I told them, it was nice to just tell someone this little secret I had been keeping. 

Its not you, its me |
I no way am I ashamed of this blog. It's because I love this blog so much and I'm so proud of the little following I have created that makes me so happy. I don't write to get views but its nice to have people read what I have to say. I want to carry on blogging without a picture of myself until I feel comfortable enough to tell my family, I don't want them to just stumble across it because then I think they would feel a bit annoyed that I didn't tell them, I would rather tell them myself. Who knows if this blog will take off, it probably wont and I'm just dreaming. To quote doctor who "I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams" When I read some of your comments, I'm not ashamed or embarrassed to say that some of them bring a tear to my eye. You are all so lovely in the comment section and your encouragement makes me a bit teary, you have all because part of what is like a little internet family. 

I also found this doctor who quote which basically sums this whole post up in very little amount of words. 
"You know when sometimes, you meet someone so beautiful – and then you actually talk to them, and five minutes later they’re as dull as a brick; but then there’s other people. And you meet them and you think, ‘Not bad, they’re okay,’ and then when you get to know them… Their face just sort of becomes them, like their personality’s written all over it, and they just – they turn into something so beautiful."
I want people to love my blog, what I have to say and my personality. Not a face on a screen.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Feel free to share this post and comment.
Bye for now xxx
