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.
