I ask this question in all seriousness and I’d love to know if you have ‘gear’ that you generally wear when you are writing your posts.
I confess that I have never written a post while all dressed up. I have to be in my relaxed clothes and by that I tend to mean, pjs and dressing gown, or layers of clothes to keep me nice and snug if I’m just back from a swim in the sea and full of inspiration. The pic above gives a general idea of what I’m talking about but I certainly wouldn’t have the nail varnish …..
Does what you wear have an effect on what you write? I think it probably does as we (I) feel and think differently depending on what we’re (I’m) wearing. I think I feel more in touch with the real me when I’m not in professional attire, such as a suit and high heels. I can’t imagine what I might write if I wasn’t in relaxed mode ~ perhaps much more work-oriented stuff and that would mean sociology and social policy material which matters hugely to me but which has never really found its way in a formal way onto Social Bridge.
So, what about you? What’s your feel about all this? I came across an ‘update’ from a connection on Linkedin today that simply said: I never wear a tie, should I? Clearly there are lots of different approaches to style in terms of clothes and writing so let’s explore it a little!
