Personal battle over my Profile picture... Input? Answered
So, those of you who have seen me around the site know that I always have the same profile picture. In fact, I have never changed it. That little Bionicle dude has been my face on here since pretty much day one. I'm pretty attached to it.
That said, my friend brought up a valid point the other day: To other people it makes me look a bit like a little kid. I disagreed, citing the number of Instructables and the Pro tag that goes along with my pic. He said that that aside, people would take me more seriously if I had a more... grown up picture.
Frankly, I know that it is a stupid thing to over-think, but it kind of stuck in my head, asking myself if I should shed the old familiar face for a more professional image, or, keep the generally playful image people have come to (maybe) know, and (hopefully) love.
This is probably one of the most bitchy self-serving topics you will ever read on this site, but I haven't slept in about 30 hours, so I plead that in defense.
Any input or perhaps deserved ribbing?
