Several times I have read that having your picture on your website increases peoples trust and confidence in you. As if seeing a picture will somehow make you more real and approachable. Although whether someone would find this chap approachable based on the evidence of his photo I find somewhat unbelievable.
However, I have succumbed. And why my choice of picture is perhaps more … informal than some would say is best for a serious web developer, it does convey some playfulness. I think.
Or perhaps that’s just manic lunacy, I always get confused between those two expressions.
