Why do/don’t you show your face on your page/platform?
When I started Mind of Amaka, I originally wanted to remain anonymous. I mean, here’s my opportunity to own a corner of the internet to call mine. A place I could express my weird thoughts and whatnot. Putting no face to my new blog was highly appealing but eventually I started showing my face. Have to admit though, there’s power in anonymity. You can say whatever and not have to worry about your family members or people that know you in real life butting in and trying to censor you. I respect people like Naija Single Girl @naijasinglegirl and @diaryofanaijagirl for this. That’s why I don’t really like people I know following me, haha. Until now, I’m still not comfortable sharing photos of myself here. Being unphotogenic and highly picky about images of yourself will do that to you. There’s always something off, something you wish you could have tweaked before the photo was taken. It doesn’t help matters when the person you ask to take your photo chooses to be unfortunate 🤷🏽♀️ •️• Anyway, thankfully @ziffyjacobs wasn’t one of the unfortunate ones. I show my face (mostly on my Instagram stories, seldom on the feed) because I don’t really want to be anonymous. Sometimes, the yearning comes, but I can always open an anon page/blog if I wanted to. It’s nice to have people recognize you and say hi when you go to public events. •️•
That’s it for me. How about you? Why do you show your face, apart from the obvious reasons for some of us e.g makeup content etc. Why don’t you show your face, if you’re team anonymous? •️•
