    I changed my avatar today to reflect the mood I was looking for. Since it's cold and I'm stuck inside,I picked a bright pink flower to remind me of warmer weather.
    Do you change often and I wonder if a face is better? hmm

      lol I've changed mine once in five weeks. I prefer to show my face on my avatar but that's just because I prefer it. No reason really. I like that you change your avatar to reflect the mood smile
      Today I should change my avatar to a bottle of exedrin. I have a migraine that's gonna kill me tongue

              Well, if it helps, I never thought it was cabbage. wink

              There's a store in my area that sells all types of gorgeous stones and rocks just like that. They are beautiful in person!

              I'll try to watch for the green cat; and I commented on your hub.

      I update my avatar about once a year.  I prefer to post actual pictures of myself for my avatars, but I don't have a preference when it comes to other people.

          It's all bright red right now as I do a half-yearly hair color switch.  I've got pics on my biography hub.  But come spring the purple one will be color accurate again...

    I don't change very often... In fact, I've only changed once.  As the Community Manager, I want to be easily (and quickly) identifiable, so I don't want to confuse people by switching my picture too often.

    I have been wondering about sprucing mine up a bit. I'm not 100% sure that my search visitors are delighted when they realise they have landed on a page written by a moron.

        Adding a gnome hat might be nice...  A gnome hat, a mustache, and maybe a nose and glasses.   smile

    Well, I guess I might be the most "boring" when it comes to avatars, then. I've never switched it - LOL!

    The reason? We specifically created this pic for this very purpose and I want to become associated with it.

    Avatars are cool but I get a sense of the person I'm reading as being out in the open when a real pic is used,just my preference.Of course that only applies to nonfiction,otherwise it may benefit the author.
    Mine is there to intimidate and cause my ex says only a mother could love it...Ha!

    Inspired by this thread I have changed my pic.  It is the new me for 2012. I am hopeful it will shift more Amazon product without being too scary or psychotic.
