I think it was a very funny coincidence that the day I decided to show my face (although in a very shy way) Elisabeth wrote an interesting post about putting a face to the blog author.
I do agree that seeing a blogger's face makes the blog more personal but don't think it's crucial. You decide your level of exposure. In this blog I avoid showing pictures of people in general and specially of friends and family, I don't like to expose them. As for myself, I have a terrible relationship with the camera and hate having my picture taken, it just doesn't feel comfortable. Also I'm usually the person behind the camera and 99.9% of the pictures I have I took them. But really, who cares? Time to get out of the comfort zone! So this is me, black and white and some contrast but me, in front of the entrance to the Barbican.
