Because you should never leave your blog for this long with a post containing hideous picture of yourself - right at the top. Glaring at you, getting more and more irritating everytime you check in on your blog (which is often).
Even if you feel kind of annoyed with certain stuff and you just don't feel like writing - you should still write SOMETHING, any little thing - so that you don't have to keep staring at that god awful picture of yourself with the ugliest haircut you've ever had.
And this should do just that.
Nope. Wait. I can still see the top of Steve's head and his squinting eyes - also irritating to look at every single day.
Now THIS should be good enough.
