I have a confession to make.
The header I’ve been using on this blog has been outdated for quite some time. Not the header you might see now (we’ll get to that in a second), but the header that was there until today. I’m no longer the young, strong, virile man I was when that photo was taken in 2007.
That’s right: 2007!
I would have changed it a long time ago, but here’s the truth: I couldn’t find in the code of my blog where I could change it, and I don’t know how to use Photoshop, so I didn’t have a way to edit a photo into the red background.
Also, I don’t have many high-quality photos of myself. I think that happens when you’re single–there’s no one around to take photos of you when you have a great hair day.
So I simply let that header fester for a long, long time.
Recently, though, I had a web designer named Dave Hewer work on the Stonemaier Games website. On a whim, it occurred to me that he might have the magical coding knowledge–and the Photoshop skills–to change the header on this blog.
So he did. Here it is:
The photo is brand new–it’s still a few years old, but that is much more what I look like now. I’d rather you look at my actual, modern-day face when you read this blog than some vestige of begotten days of the past.
So perhaps today you could use this as a reminder to check to see how old your profile photos are. Do you still look like your photo? Do you care if you don’t?
