#SwiftlyPainted Self-Portrait Challenge--Month One

It's DAY ONE of Jess and Annmarie's selfie challenge. Are you joining in?

This month's prompt is: Reflect and respond to this statement: your followers follow you willingly.
Create an image of what describes you as a blogger.

Well, here's my simple reaction to that statement:

Ugh, that was even dorkier than I thought it would be. Whatever, it stays.

But it's so easy to get caught up with numbers and pageviews and all that blog crap, that sometimes you (okay, I) need to just remember that it's pretty damn cool that people who live across the world from me, people I don't even know and people I'll never even meet have to chosen to follow my blog.

This month's selfie:

Okay, so this image doesn't capture my writing style at all, but you know, I don't think I'm a talented enough photographer or model to capture that anyway. 

So what does my selfie have to do with anything?

I've decided it represents my start as a fashion blogger, which has gone by the wayside recently. My best friend, (yes Crystal), bought me the camera as a Christmas present to encourage me to start a style blog.

So when I first started I thought I'd be using a camera a lot more for each post (don't worry Crystal I still use the camera a lot!).

So this selfie is also a reminder to do some more beauty/fashion things, because I don't want to stop that completely.

Obviously I'm not smiling because this is a serious fashion portrait. Duh.

See you next month!
