Suggest an Avatar for Hubbers you follow

    sunforgedposted 5 years ago

    A fun thread is going http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/86450 discussing Avatar selection.

    Personally, I identify Avatar selection as an important part of branding and promotion in the world of online writing.

    So in the course of reading the forum thread, I figured Id share that one writer Cagsil that have read for years here, IN MY OPINION, would be better served with an avatar such as:

    http://h3.homestead.com/Jonathan_Livingston_Seagull_taken_by_Mom_for_Dad.jpg

    Again, i dont see Avatars as a reflection of personality but rather a potential element of interest that could attract a reader or identify your brand in some way (perhaps across multiple networks)

    Often, others can see a different approach when they have some distance from the matter ... so does anybody out there think they have a good suggestion for branding/identity of HUbbers they follow?

    Or you could try the "train method" suggest an avatar for the hubber above .. but that really only works if you have followed their work. Thought it might be fun and informative for some and help get the concept of branding/promo more into the forefront.

      I guess I have an affinity for soaring bird images. Since that is a T-shirt design from my spreadshirt shop circa 2002. Probably, an early return for an image search for "sunforged'

      thanks for the suggestion, I could prob run with any of the tshirt designs, forgot that shop existed.

        I dont think a sex predator mugshot is a very good idea.

        I read a hub and scanned titles of yours. I can see a correlation between travel/tropical somehow ... but that particular bird makes me think of Toucan Sam commercials.

        I dont think its a bad choice though, certainly wont drive anyone away or seem inappropriate to your topics.

    I've been trying to come up with an Avatar or brand for myself.

    I originally had my 'face' as my avatar, and then a cartoonized face as my avatar - now I have this silly 'clip art' thing!

    Any suggestions for a new avatar would be really helpful.

I also have one of you sitting in a chair that does have a back, but the chair cannot be seen in the picture and I know it has a back to the chair because you're leaning backwards in the chair. I cannot go into any more about the picture, so don't ask. lol

      So should I surmise you only follow yourself?

      Or do you suggest that other hubbers use you as their profile image. That actually would be fun wouldnt it?

      Your profile images always seem spot on and alluring anyway.

      You might get just a bit more clicks if you were to be posing with a stool though.

            Even as a prepubescent little boy I always thought Alanna was easily and by far the most beautiful woman in comics, and always right there by her heroic love's side.

            And, I don't recall her character name in this Star Trek episode (I'm not THAT much of a geek), but I always thought Nancy Kovak was easily and by far the most beautiful of all of Capt Kirk's romantic interests . . . and, that her tears intoxicated men into forsaking all in their interest to adore her, made her a very compelling character.

            And, Nancy Kovack herself is a remarkably interesting woman - stunningly beautiful, particularly well-suited as the conniving temptress (as in the original "Jason & The Argonauts") she was in fact a very smart and very benevolent woman . . . at the height of her career she left behind her standing as one of the most sought after beauties in Hollywood, when she married conductor Zubin Mehta, to devote herself to her marriage and fund raising - her charitable functions are considered THE events of the season by the upper-crust types and she is regarded as the ultimate hostess by the elite . . . using all her charms and station to raise money for her charitable causes.

            . . . and who in movies is prettier . . ?

                . . . how are you doing today - I hope the day unfolds with a bounty of some of your favorite things . . . get some really good won ton soup, curl-up under your coziest blanket, and rent 1947's "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir" tonight.If anyone is prettier than Nancy Kovack, it's Gene Tierney in this film . . . she was always attractive, but something about her in this film, her age, the lighting, I don't know but she doesn't look just so radiantly gorgeous anywhere else as she does in this movie. Even if you've seen it before, in the end you will cry the most hauntingly peaceful cry . . . grandly sweeping score by Bernard Herrmann contributes so much (as he always does).

    Here is Kimberly; a compelling woman from an unfolding story, told in single a haunting image . . . I only know bits of her from fragments and glimpses here, but in a fleeting and non-detailed manner, I feel I know her deeply - Kimberly, stepping out of an ensnaring blackness and into light, revealing a beauty that defines her and that she defines ~
