What does your avatar say about you?

    Brenda Durhamposted 7 years ago

    aguasilver and I were talking about avatars in another thread.
    I thought it would be interesting to find out why Hubbers have chosen their specific avatars.
    I know those change a lot.  But was wondering if anyone else wants to share what particular relevance their favorite personal avatar has?

    I had my picture there for a while.  Figured people might be tired of lookin' at my mug.  haha shut UP Randy!  wink
    Changed it to a former avatar I'd used elsewhere.
    I had placed the line "Looking Always to The Cross" under it, but couldn't figure out how to put it under the avatar on this site.

    That's my story.  Self-explanatory.

    Care to share yours?

          tan,

          Maybe your mirror isn't working properly. Seriously, do you have a mental eating disorder? My wife is only 100 lbs. and is afraid of getting fat, she's about 5'3.

      I'm sorry!  I hadn't seen all the other avatar threads, or else forgot about having seen any.    I even tried searching the site for "avatar" to see if I could find threads on it already.   Guess I can just go read those you listed!

    I just joined a few days ago, so all the hub stuff is new to me. When I made my profile I just went to Google Images and searched for a picture that I thought represented what my username meant.

      Yes one must be relaxed while waiting for Ken to come to bed LMAO.

      For those of you who don't know Isis had a boyfriend Hugh Jass who patented a robotic helicopter. He was quite a man. She finds it hard to wake up in the morning whilst nuturing her broken heart, hence she only changes out of her dressing gown when going downtown to buy potatoes.

    I had Victoria Frances "Red Basque" for my avatar because my daughters both said it looked very much like a picture they had seen of me that was taken by my first husband, who used to dress me up in costumes and lingerie and photograph me.  But I took it out and replaced it with a pic of myself. I felt that I had already bared so much of my soul and put so much of my life story into my hubs and poems, what difference did it make if people saw the real me.

(Now...The ol' red tractor has people sending it fan mail!) It's as close as I get to thinking I'm out in the country...'Cause for now I'm just doing the working and writing thing in the big city..."H"-town...Houston, Texas...that is!
