Beyond Shoulder Pads and Stilettos

I think you're all aware of this, but in case you're not, I'm kind of a business lady.

What I mean is sometimes I really miss digging holes.


Versus these kinds of holes. I still get to dig plenty of those kinds of holes. 

I decided it was time that I throw together a portfolio site. Just a simple site to offer a response to those who are curious about what I do 36–40 hours a week. It's really gripping stuff, mostly. 

So my research tells me that people can connect better to a brand when they see images, particularly of people. So what is the Summer Grimes brand? What image would portray it? I. don't. know. 

But what I do know is that I do not have in my possession an appropriate portrait to post as a professional headshot. I had this one on my Linkedin, but frankly I currently am five years older and quite a bit more than five pounds heavier than when that shot was taken.

Here are a few options I had to wade through to finally find something acceptable:

Digitally enhanced Dolly Parton computer face.




Very serious networking.


New apartment blues.
New apartment frog blues.
My family's gonna have a real problem with this one/chest-rash.
The frumpy murderer .





I finally found a shot I could crop the excess (Kady) out of and use. Here is my quickly-thrown-together-but-not-awful-for-a-writer/non-designer “portfolio” site.

    I've missed you Summer! Excellent choice on your web picture, you look beautiful.
    Your "New Apartment Blues" headshot made me laugh out loud..if you meet someone on-line and they ask for a picture of you, it would be a real deal maker if you sent them that one.

  2. Tried to 'like' your web picture, but it didn't know me and I couldn't figure out how to accomplish that. Anyway LIKE.

Your comments are why I get out of bed in the morning. Just kidding. But I do like them.
