I'm on a quest to put up a much improved avatar. I'm not very good at photo editing so I've tried my hardest on this one.
What do u think - Yay or Nay?
You have a nice face David I would go for a direct face shot.
thanks earnesthub - i like ur avatar - i'll take your advice - thank again!
Your a brother to me already dawei you were the first few people that made me a fan, when im still beginning.
But this time to say you honestly, your avatar is no good, the original one is far better... sorry for the comment.
"Men are like wines, they'll get better as they get older."
I dont worry to much with my avatar for now since i haven't created a niche yet here in hp... Hehehehe
hmmm...thanks General. I appreciate that - I wanna make a better avatar - i'll keep working at it! thanks!
What's with the cat? I concur with earnesthub, a direct face shot if your going for the personal picture.
I like the cat though - I'll try to get a nicer shot w/her. I wish i was better at photography and photo editing! Too lazy to learn it!
I like the cat, too. My own avatar (such as it is) was taken one-handed (by me, no shutter delay or anything). But one that I took while holding one of our kitties (it's on one of the Hubs) didn't come out all that well--she wanted to watch me, not the camera. Which is of course a much appreciated compliment, but it does make the "perfect photo" a challenge and a half. Good luck!
Hi Ghost32 - Thanks for that! I find that when trying to take a pic with a kitty you have about a 15-second window to get the right shot then the feline friend moves onto bigger and better (when i took that shot she had been in the middle of devouring a poor fish!)
This one is better. I'm a sucker for cats, though. I'll have to check out your hubs, but am wondering if you write about pets??? The jury's out for me whether the cat works or not.
Hi WordScribe41! I'm a BIG time procrastinator. When I'm not busy doing stuff online I'm outside w/the cat. She's kind of old so isn't too playful but is very kind and has the soul of an angel. Thought I'd just share that...Thanks for ur comment :-)
AWWW, you just won my heart. I'm a ridiculous cat lover (have 3 now) and I spoil them to death. 2 of my 3 are old kitties: one's 14 and the other's 17 (in chronic renal failure Might have swayed me to say: keep the cat.
Thanks wordscribe41 - I love cats too. The other days i was walking by an outdoor restaurant. They had 2 cats, mom & dad and 8 kittens of all different colors (black + white, calico & tiger colors). The lady asked me "Khun ao mai?" - You want in Thai language - then held up 2 tiny kittens meowing with their high-pitched voices. I said "phom mi leo" (I have already) - my heart melted - wanted to take them home! But, Ms. Princess can be very, very nasty with newcomers...
Alright, I like the cat you have in this photo, but to my defense, the first one I saw was a picture of a cat with you in the background. This photo is much better as it is of you with a cat.
earnest - agreed! it's hard to get it 100% right though. i'll keep trying...i really do think having a good avatar is extremely important for success in online marketing.
Do you really think so? I have my doubts, I think content is what really matters, as in, people may be attracted to a cute avatar but if the content isn't there they will eventually go away. Just my two cents.
Well to be honest, had liked your previous one better. This one i think the cat stole the show lol. I had written a hub on importance of profile pictures just got reminded of that while reading this. This profile pic is the only connection i have of you it is what that the mind seems to remember i always associate badcompany with a pirate in hubpages context.
My rating would be 2 stars in compared to your previous avatar.
It's gorgeous, honestly it is the one that makes you feel happiest with....
Gets a Yay from me as I like a personal picture like this rather than one that doesn't let you really see the hubber!
Blondpoet & Bard of Ely - Thanks! I will try to get my photoshop geek friend to teach me how to do something with the background. i think the pic is ok but the background (area behind where live where the cat stays) is ugly!!!
It's ok, but I thought your "you with the water in the background" was better - straight and to the point as far pictures of people go.

This is an easy thread. All you have to do is name the last movie you saw and rate it from 1-10 (1-sucks to 10-great)You can have up to 5 films, as long as you have seen them within the last month. Ok? (ok, maybe longer than that.)I'll start:District 9/rating 10Meet The spartans/rating...

What do you think about writers who don't put their photo as avatar in Hubpages?I have seen many hubbers that have preferred anonymity and don’t use their photo as avatar in their profile. What do you think about this? Do you think it rests credibility to the author? Do you see any other...

Well I'm just in a doozy. I dislocated my shoulder last weekend, had to go to ER, x-rays and then they reset the shoulder. Now I'm in a sling but I still can't raise my arm more than a few inches.So I come to my fellow hubbers here who have such a wealth of info on so many things....is this normal...

Wow, I was surprised to see the number 99 smiling out at me this afternoon. Is 100 waiting in the wings? This was an unexpected surprise, because for the life of me I have not been able to 'crack' the code of 100. Most people say that it doesn't really make much difference what...
