I feel selfies aren’t just about social media anymore. It’s just a really common way to take a photo isn’t it? I can’t say I “selfie” but thinking on it I realized yeah, I kinda do because Musings of a Muse is filled with selfies. But I’m not one for constantly posting self images of myself on Instagram or Faceboook etc…! I’m not terribly comfortable doing so as I’m not the most photogenic person in the world.
Now, funny, some people are annoyed by selfies but I personally love them. I really like looking through other people’s selfies. I find the selfie culture absolutely fascinating. I use the self view on my camera, tablet, or phone to check my makeup but I’m not really taking shots of myself daily. So the fact that people do and proceed to post one or several a day absolutely blows my mind. To me it translates as they are a very confident person and comfortable in their own skin!
Posting photos of myself on Musings is very difficult and it’s something I don’t think a lot about because if I analyze it too much I likely won’t post shots at all. So I do a lot of it without thinking. Some people say bloggers are brave to put themselves out there for the world to see, others say we deserve any criticisms we get because we do put ourselves out there. I’m of the mentality we likely don’t think of it much and just slap the photo up without over analyzing it to death because if we did we’d likely become less brave and a lot more uncomfortable doing it. Or at least that’s the case for me.
In the end, I don’t think Musings of a Muse counts for selfies so I’m going to say I don’t selfie…often. But on a rare occasion I do.
Do you selfie?
Why do you selfie?
P.S. I might not selfie but I chronically post photos of my food. But that’s an entirely other ballgame isn’t it?
