Jedi Fox

Awkward shadow dapples on my face, whattuppp. Let's pretend that I did it on purpose, to be artsy.

One of my recent blogging goals has been to limit the number of outfit photos per post, in imitation of A Geek Tragedy (Cuddly Cacti also discussed this). Ideally, each picture would have a purpose: side view, detail shot, etc. This kind of minimalism is difficult, because my narcissistic self has hard time not including every marginally-decent shot. But I think I'm getting better at it!

And now, in honor of my sweater:

That's all, folks. Move along.

  1. Sometimes it's hard to pick photos to post. Other times I have like two decent ones and I'm searching for ones that I don't look stupid in! As long as there's not ten billion photos of the same thing it's all good.
    But anyway, this sweater. It's so so cute! I love the bow on it too.

    1. It's funny how much it varies, right? My favorite days are when I only take like 10 photos, but they all turn out. The worst is 30+ plus photos that I don't like >.<

      And thank you! It was an excellent Christmas gift.

  2. Sometimes I feel like I don't have enough photos because I didn't show how things look from the side/back/details, etc. But then other times I wonder if everyone is going to think I am super vain because there are photos from the side/back/details. I don't think you can win sometimes!

    1. I think vanity is generally a good thing, so it doesn't bother me! Go for it, girl.

  3. It's hard, I agree, because conventional blogging wisdom kind of suggests that 'the more pretty pictures, the better'. I try to make each of my photos have something distinct about them, but I do think there is extra leeway if you put funny captions on them ;-).

  4. "What does the fox say?"

    Sorry. As soon as I saw the picture on my fb feed that's the first thing that popped in my head. :D And then when I get to your post there's lots of pictures of foxes!!!

    I'm so easily distracted. Apparently I thoroughly enjoyed ALL of your pictures. They all had foxes!

  5. I agree with the notion of reducing the amount of pictures to show the basic ideas. I was on a personal style blog the other day and noticed that the person posted 6 pictures of the same pose and angle, and the only thing that was different was the cropping. That's when I realized that I didn't want to fall into that trap! (Like you said, it can be easy to when the pictures come out decently enough!)

    1. Yes! I want to be exactly the kind of blog that I like to read. I don't want to bore or irritate people.

  7. It's my favorite sweater, again! Yay! <3 <3 I think you should do what comes naturally, but also try to be aware of general blogging pet peeves. I've read that, for example, people tend to dislike seeing a ton of photos of someone in a slightly different pose. I see it all the time and I tend to share the same sentiment. It's superfluous and it does kind of come off as narcissistic. Hehe. Then again, don't we all have to have some measure of narcissism to create a blog dedicated to ourselves. ;) I dunno. I try to keep an eye out for things people tend to dislike and find a happy medium. Personally, I don't think very highly of myself, so it's easy for me to cut to the chase with my posts when it comes to the photos. Front, side, back, some details. Done. Hehe.

    1. Exactly--"a happy medium" is the perfect phrase!
