I’ve made what feels like a momentous decision for myself. And all because I really wanted to work with a website that knew it wouldn’t be able to use the picture I use for my avatar as Kayla Lords. In their email requesting my bio, they mentioned the need for a picture, preferably of me. /sigh
Starting this blog, I went to great pains to create a completely different online profile so that unless you’re some super-sleuth, no one could connect me to my vanilla self. But now I want to do something more than just blog my sexual fantasies – and to me that means becoming a real person for the world.
With the help of a good man this weekend, I had several pictures to choose from. He actually made it hard because there were several I liked. I let my seven year old pick his favorite from the two I couldn’t decide between. It’s a family affair around here, even if he has no idea that he’s helping his mom propel her erotica writing career. I’ll save that for when he’s older and can afford a therapist.
If you follow me in various other places, you may start noticing the change in avatars, but because I love my blog followers, you get the first look at the real me…or as much of the real me as I’m willing to show…
And yes, that’s Mr. Teddy.
one day I hope to be in a place where I can be free too. I hope that the future lets me come out of hiding. Bravo.. I love teddy and admire you
I’m terrified…but sometimes you have to go big or go home…I’ve gone medium-sized… 🙂
Awe teddy 😉
/giggles…I think I love that everyone so far as noticed Teddy far more than they have me…yay! 🙂
How could we ever miss you 😉 it’s a great photo.
Thanks..I had a good photographer. 🙂
Lovely picture, well chosen too. I understand your struggle too, it sounds familiar.
I can’t hide behind a Rubens forever… even though it is tempting… 🙂
I think we might be able to turn that new avatar Rubenslike. The picture might connect your readers to you more. Think of it as a good thing.
That’s exactly what I was thinking – a better connection with my readers…I can’t hide forever…and I want everyone to know I’m real…it’s still scary, though…lol
Good picture, great teddy and good luck!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you! 🙂
Brave lady! Nice to meet you!
🙂 Brave or stupid…not sure which, yet…
Very Nice Kayla, nice to see the real you… ✨ I too have to make a conscious decision by years end when one of my (wip)’s will be promoted on a grand scale in the mass media world… Your step here gives me hope…
You can do it, Joseph…you’ve got such a following…they’ll love meeting the real you! 🙂
I love the sly behind-the-hair look. Your photographer did a great job capturing you and giving you anonymity, too.
Thank you! 🙂 I was surprisingly happy with several shots…
A big step to be sure, my hats off to you for the leap you’ve taken. While Mr. Teddy may be prominent he in no way deflects from you. A pleasure to see you and a fine photograph indeed.
A very big step, but worth it, I think… 🙂
Thank you…for everything.
You are very welcome, best of luck with this next step in your journey.
I think it is very cute. I struggle with wanting to be anonymous and getting credit for my work… Sometimes a friendly face propels our words far further than they could go alone.
I think you’re very right about a friendly face…I think fear keeps us anonymous…and I don’t want to be afraid anymore…
And thank you, by the way. 🙂
Beautiful dear, congratulations on this big step forward! You put the Rubens to shame.
/blush…aw shucks…thank you! 😀
Nice to meet you and teddy.
Giving you a big hug for your courage.
Thank you!! ((HUGS))
