New Avatar to Keep You Guessing

While going through 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo, it was suggested that you put a professional headshot on the front page to engage your first time visitors. Hmm, anonymous* blog = not showing my face. So what's a budding blogger to do? Use an avatar face maker!

If you know me in real life, you're probably thinking "That looks nothing like you, A." Call it a creative re-imagining, if you will. ^_~ I think K's avatar is much closer though, similar to the look he had a couple of years ago.

I've actually been told repeatedly (most recently by my pastor last week) that I have a very expressive face that shows my emotions like an open book. I've even been told that I speak like an anime character, with extreme pitch variation, punctuated sound effects, and lots of squealing. So maybe this is a better representation of what I really look like:

Do you have an avatar you're proud of? Show it to me by leaving a comment!

The various expressions are fun!

Hehe, thanks! K teases me about acting like an anime character sometimes, so I tried to make them as wild and varied as possible.
