Sure hippos are my favorite animals; I think they are adorable and *look* cuddly. The thought of a hippo needing to lose weight makes sense and seeing one atop a scale is pretty cute and catchy I suppose. Maybe it makes people think, "what is that all about?" or "awww, how cute!" But the problem that came to mind was... do I associate myself with the hippo? Is that cute little gal with the pink bandanna up there how I see myself? Have I personified myself in my blog image? Or is it just a cute little hippo on a scale?
Honestly, I have no idea but I guess it's something I should think about. So just a heads up, there might be a total remodel of my blog coming soon... or at least a few tweaks here and there.
