Bloggers- Do their pictures match the writing?

I don't know about you but I have a very graphic and vivid imagination. Whenever I am reading a person's blog I cannot help but develop a mental image of them. I picture the way I think they look as well as their voice.

So I always find it quite interesting to discover pictures of the bloggers and or audio clips in which I can hear their voices.

Sometimes I am truly surprised and sometimes I nail it, but it always fun to try.


torontopearl said... saw Neil's pic; is he how you pictured him? I pictured him more like the cast member Reuven Russell listed above his bio.

Blogging and picturing what bloggers look like is somewhat similar to listening to radio DJ's. You form a mental picture, and then you'll see an ad for the radio station picturing a photo of them or the station' web site with the pics. And boy, sometimes you're w...a....y.... off in what you were picturing.

Actually it wasn't Neil's pic that prompted this post, but a collection of pics of bloggers that I have seen
in the last week.

It is all so interesting.

A previously anonymous blogger's picture will be revealed on treppenwitz (with her permission).

Stay tuned.

I kind of like the mystery of not knowing what other bloggers look like.

Have you ever decided not to read a person's blog based on their photo?

Jack Steiner said...

Hey David,

That was kind of fun. Sounds like you all had a good time.

Edgy Mama,

I always make my decisions based upon the writing. If the words are compelling I'll follow the trail and see what lies around the bend.

Treppenwitz, I have a strong guess as to who you will unmask. We'll see if I'm right.

I have a picture on my blog but I look nothing like it - thank heavens.

Jack and Pearl, and anyone else, there's one picture of me in CAST at my play's website, where I'm in my street clothes. I didn't know it, but my mother (G-d Bless Her) found a picture of the whole cast in character, where I look more like a stereotypical rabbi. I'm the one on the farthest right.

Jack Steiner said...

Ah, I see.

Sorry for being an egotist, and spoiling your fun (-:

Yup the photo is really me.

Jack could you send me a note on how to create drop down menus for things other than the archives?

i picture bloggers from how and what they write and respond to comments. but i also wonder what the enviroment is like around them, the computer they use, how does the room look?

and sometimes i wonder what people imagine the real me (as opposed to my little profile picture identity) to be like!

That is a good description of my thoughts. It is hard not to be curious.
