Is my Profile Picture Scaring away my Followers?

Poof it went. Two of my follower just disappeared. Ok let me start from the beginning. It was a lazy Monday morning (yesterday), I was ideally minding my own business, when I decided to check out my blog. Two of my followers were missing! I had 26 followers, yeah I keep a record of my followers and I don’t know what went wrong. Why these two of my followers decided to un-followed me. Was it because I posted said something stupid or was it because of my new profile picture.

Incase if you haven’t noticed, I have changed my profile. That’s it, the guys with super, white face, black eye shadow or whatever, and an expression that looks like he is having constipation. Yeah that’s me. But please don’t get me wrong. I don’t deny that I wore that make up to look like those black metal, anti-Christ bands but I wore that just for fun. I am a god-fearing person, who goes to church occasionally (though I can’t remember when was the last time I visited the church) and I feel that am not that bad also.

The idea of becoming an Anti-Christ has never ever knocked my head, though am a die hard metal fan. I listen to all kind of metal and black metal seems to me one of my favorite genre. No offense to other kind of music, but I never liked other genre except metal. My favorite bands include Iron Maiden (which I consider one of the best metal bands in the universe), Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Skid Row, Decide, Venom, Dimmu borgir, Mayhem, Amom Amorth and Judas Priests to name a few.

I love to get drunk occasionally, head bang, jam with my band, yeah am the drummer of a band called Gust Of Guttural, go to rock shows, but am not an Anti-Christ. If my profile picture is screaming out that am one plus if its scary, please don’t misjudge me by that look. I am just a fun loving person chasing his dream.

Here is my current profile picture (The guy who looks like he is having a bad constipation)

Here is my past profile picture (A dream that will soon land my room within two months, i mean i'll be buying this kit very soon)
