One thing we’ve consistently had bloggerly trouble with around here is people getting confused about who writes which post. Our WordPress layout doesn’t help us out, so we put our icons in our posts to help out. However, given that FJ and I are pseudonymous and Kate isn’t, people still tend to get confused, since my icon has been a “Do Not Approach Wildlife” sign (what! I’m a sucker for sign iconography) and FJ’s has been, well, a fillyjonk, which I think maybe three people have recognized ever, tops. When I realized that even Mr Machine was not registering which post was written by whom (Mr M: “Hey, you know that thing Kate said on the blog about X?” SM: “Hey, that was me!”), it seemed time to take action. After all, he is, AFAIK, the only person besides FJ’s mom who has actually met all three of us IRL — if he can’t figure out who’s who online, then how can Joe Comment? And, of course, it doesn’t help that we’re all Kates Harding in the first place.
I asked our incredibly talented FJ if she was willing to make us (except Kate!) more representative icons so that we could be at least recognizably pseudonymous, and she agreed because she is awesome. So, I present you: me!
Hello everyone! In person my skin is exactly that clear, and my hair is adorably messy at all times. I have no personal problems whatsoever.
Keep an eye out for FJ’s new icon, to be debuted soon. And jesus, isn’t she talented? Seriously. If I drew my own icon it would look like a mangled smiley face. With glasses.
So remember: Kate’s the famous one. FJ’s the one who can draw. And I’m the one with glasses.
