New Publicity Photo

From the time I started online I’ve been using the same publicity photo as a sort of logo across all my social media platforms. If you see this photo (except for one brief imposter on Twitter) you’ve known it was me.

This year at the Johnson County Fair I won a free portrait sitting, so I figured it’s been long enough that it was a sign that I needed to update my publicity photo. So I went in

Sarah Uthoff By the Numbers December 2015

Show me the numbers they say and I was inspired by a poster for a concert at Kirkwood that included the performer’s number of Facebook likes. I thought, “I can do that!” I did previous posts Trundlebed Tales by the Numbers August 19, 2013,  December 14, 2013 June 8, 2014, December 19, 2014, April 13, 2015 and September 20, 2015. It’s a collection of raw numbers of my online activities. I think it will be interesting to track. Today’s post numbers are as of December 30, 2015.
