Do you think adding a picture of yourself to your profile makes your readers connect with you more?
I'd like to think so...random pics are very impersonal, it's nice to put a face to a profile :-)
I think it does add an important connection to have either a picture of yourself or your pet as your profile picture as the photo is special to you.
absolutely! Personally, I feel strange reading writers that I can't put a face to. I'm more likely to follow people with profile pics as opposed to random pics, unless of course the writing is brilliant.
I certainly do,, especially if there aren't warts or nose hairs,,, unless of course the subject of your writing is warts or nose hairs,, that's why i had all removed before submitting my photo.. would be good to see your picture tho ,,
I guess it depends on just how people want to "connect" with others. What kind of connection?
I say yes. I think it adds to credibility as a writer. However, I have used a picture of a raven on one of my bird baths before. The Poe epic connection - smile. But, I switched back. An example to give is at Dr. Janet Starr Hull's site(s) for Nutritional information her pictures are from the 90's and are like a trademark(s). (I hope I got the era correct - smile). They lend to the credibility of continuity. Let me insert a disclaimer here stating this is only an opinion and not necessarily a truth - smile.
I do not know if it makes a difference to have a picture of myself on my profile but I have added it today. I believe it is the quality and topics of my hubs that get followers.
I have been on this site for 13 months and have written several hubs which have received great input for which I appreciate. I have started to follow some hubbers that have provided input to them.
I don't think so. Pics of yourself really just get lost in a sea of faces. I think if your picture is of something you really like or find interesting, it speaks more about you. Plus you are more likely to be recognized in Answers and the Forum with an easy to remember picture, instead of one of yourself.
But, that's just my thought. ^_^
I agree with most of you..I think some picture is better than no picture. It doesn't necessarily need to be of you.

I've been debating this for a week or so now...Do you guys prefer to use a picture of you or a picture of something else?I see that many of you use picitures of yourselves, your children, spouses, pets, or other miscellaneous pictures.Is there a benefit to using a particular type of...

HubPages asks that you include a picture of yourself in your profile. I see pictures of people, but also pictures of cats, dogs, scenery, boats, babies, etc.Some say a picture of yourself boosts your image and status among fellow Hubbers.So what's the deal with the unusual avatars?Does the...

So, I noticed on some hubs that an invitation and link are included in the "profile". Should I be doing this? How do I do this? Also, I'm not sure if my profile is very interesting. Should it be?

I have a hub on Gospel Music and the related hubs are about viagra, bikinis and sexy walpapers that I do not approve of. They have nothing to do with my hub title or content. Infact it don't even have anything to do with anything I write. What can I do about this? If readers want to see that stuff...

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also written that in their profile - that s/he will add whoever adds him/her.So...

I have noticed for the last couple of months at least that it is almost impossible to get an author's profile loading fully. Most of the time, I cannot get the profile to load at all. Sometimes, I manage to see it partially. I'm wondering if it is the Pinterest style soup used to feature hubs in an...
