Picture or no Picture?

Well as i sat here writing my last blog, my girlfriend was looking over my shoulder and asked my why I was the only blog on the featured page that had my logo in the picture box instead of a personal picture of myself.

 

Now i used to advertise my picture everywhere.  Back in the day, we had our photos in every newspaper ad, bus bench, even on our real estate signs.  However, somewhere along the way i decided that most of my clients didnt really care what i looked like, half of them wouldnt know me if they ran into me at the mall, and the other half seen me so often that my picture wasnt reinforcing anything to them at all.  It was at that time that i decided that i would instead market my company name, my name, and my logo.   It is easier for me, and it allows me to go to the bank on a bad hair day in sweatpants without people wondering if i am the same guy as the one on the bus bench outside in the tuxedo, lol.

 

So i see that nearly every other member of AR has a personal pic up, do you think this is by choice or just out of an effort to conform with the widely accepted standard?
