As a fashion blogger, I know looks are important, but I personally don't care whether or not there's a face. Even if it's a beautiful landscape picture or something else, I may like it more. But I think it depends in the field of blogging your in. Fashion does place a big importance on appearance, but other fields might not.
My blog is a personal one so I don't mind sharing my face for the whole wide web to see. hehe... :) I think posting your real self is also a good way for the readers to know what you look like, not that they all mind but I guess if they want to be friends with you or connect with you, it's a good idea. :)
