I am generally not a huge fan of self-portraits, and I absolutely refuse to do those really poor shots you see all over facebook. The reason I'm not a fan of doing them is because it can be frustrating setting up a shot with no subject in the frame. There is a lot of trial and error with both the depth of field, focus, and framing.
Usually, I spend a lot of time photoshopping out backgrounds, finding new backgrounds, and trying to make everything match. All I had to do in this case was make it black and white then add a sepia tone.
