Visual Fun

There are a lot of fun things to do on the Internet. I haven't been a huge fan of "social networking" but I think it's kind of fun that people can stay in touch with friends and family that way. I'm still not 100% sold on the idea of putting pictures of my family out there, and my husband is definitely not a fan of putting our pictures on the web for safety reasons. He's a lot more Internet savvy than I am so at this point I just trust his judgment.

I thought I would share with you an interesting way to put yourself on the Web without really putting yourself out there. A form of pseudo-identification, if you will. I found a cartoon-ish way of putting my image on any site that I might want to complete a profile of myself on. Check out when you get a chance. If you are familiar with creating an image of yourself on the Wii game system then you'll find it is very similar to that. You get to pick your personal characteristics and an image is created based on your choices. Here's mine...

Anyway, it's not super exciting or anything, but it's something fun to play with if you have time. It makes me feel like I can personalize my Internet info with a little more detail without overexposing myself. Happy Manga-ing!
