My profile pic changes fairly often. Like yesterday was for St David's Day, and when I feel like sending a message I put on something else, and so on. Some people hate having photos (me) and others want total privacy or anonimity , but eventually people feel comfortable enough when they are ready. I love to see what people look like, and also like to put a voice to it if I can, surprising how often people sound just like you think they will..lol
Donna you are absolutely right. I hate having my photo taken. At all family functions I am the one behind the camera, I run and hide behind something or someone if anyone aims a camera at me. I tease my daughters that I am going to have one of those "Glamour Shots" (where a hairdresser and makeup artist make you look like a model) down and want them to post it as my obituary so everyone think I was beautiful all my life. Sad huh? I don't think I have a head shot but I will be brave and post a photo of me. I do have some on my Spark page. Thanks for the kick in the butt! Love ya Marcie

I recently was looking through some of these team folks and noticed that there are a lot of folks who will not or do not have photos of themselves on here. I used to use AOL for connections back in "The Day" and was very careful about what I let my "friends" see. I guess it was adding mystery to everything. Then after that, on Facebook and I was careful about WHO I took on as friends and who I allowed to see my info. BUT on here, I feel much safer and to tell you the truth, more REAL. I challenge those of you who don't have pictures of yourselves, to do so. Obviously you are computer savvy or your wouldn't have OTHER pics. SO...Please. You bare your mind and your souls on here...bare your FACES. Hey, we know you've got pounds to lose, YOU ARE A REAL PERSON TOO just like the rest of us. Just do it...and another monkey will jump right off your back!!!
