Happy May! This month, I’m challenging myself to be part of NaBloPoMo again. May’s theme is photos and I’m pretty excited about participating in a photo challenge. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do but just never got around to. While this may not be a traditional photo challenge, I know I’ll be taking pictures that I probably normally wouldn’t so I’m looking forward to it!
Here’s the lineup:
Today’s topic: Do you like taking selfies? Why or why not?
To which I say…
I don’t mind taking selfies but I don’t do it a lot. I think like a lot of moms, I put myself last on the list when it comes to many things so my hair and make up and clothes are often just an afterthought. I don’t necessarily like the tired, tangled version of me that stares back from the front-facing camera. But it’s something I’m working on. I’m trying to take more selfies – mostly with my girls – so that I’m present and in the picture. After reading this article a while ago, I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to be in the picture. And besides, it’s not all bags-under-the-eyes and tired looking skin. On those occasions when I do put myself first, I can be pretty pleased with the results.
How bout you? Are you selfie crazy or a selfie-phobe?
