Since Whitney and Stephanie have recently changed their photos it's got me thinking about mine. I think I've been here long enough to ask ... What do you think about the profile photo? I originally chose it because it is directly related to my main site - One Stop Mommy Shop dot com - (not sure what the rules are with links in here yet) - and I believe it's eye-catching and draws new onlookers. But now I'm thinking that people may want to be able to identify me.
I know as a hubber, I enjoy seeing your faces and identifying them with your articles. It feels more personal and like we're having a conversation. I suppose it depends on what's more important to me, new traffic, or my relationship with hubbers here. I suppose it also depends ultimately on how much traffic I'm getting and what I'm trying to accomplish. But I'd really like to know what you all think and why. Thanks! Oh, and Hoppy Easter, too.
mrs know it all - I like your stop sign, because it kind of says "Stop! Read My Hub!", LOL.
Personally, I'm reluctant to post a face photo - just as I'm reluctant to use my real name. The photo I use is of my youngest under our beach umbrella on vacation in Cape May last summer. The house in the background to the left in the photo is the one my family shares for one week every summer. We've got great memories from those family vacations, and I always smile when I see my profile photo. I think I'll keep it for a while.
I don't have a face picture because I don't have any on my computer.
Congratulations to funride for changing profile pictures! What a cool, new photo!
Well, thank you both . Hey Ed, how do you notice that so quickly!?
After all the hubfaces changing in the last few days I was also thinking about making a refreshing to my profile picture . This one was taken by me back in 2004.
Well, some call me stalker....
And I was about to comment on your picture in your BROKEN WRIST hub, but thought I'd mention it in the forums instead! Congrats, man it really is a good photo of you.
p.s. I've missed you on the smiley's only thread. You never answered my question on there about touching my mullet!
No thank you . I don´t shave myself since 1996 . But if you need I can lend you my Philishave (R)
Stourt1....do we know each other? I ask because your profile picture happens to also be my screensaver.
I think whether or not you post your name and pic is dependent on your motivation for being here. I post mine because I am a freelance writer and I want my work and name to receive exposure. If I wasn't going public and only used hubpages as a creative outlet, as a hobby for example, I wouldn't do it.

Really, I have noticed a difference in readership and response in the forum depending on which profile photo I have up. Do you? And please tell us about your photo, your avatar

If my profile photo was a photo of a beautiful woman, would I get more traffic?I will admit easily that I am a guy, but I'm curious if such a photo would increase my traffic.

What better way to usher in Christmas in our community than by jazzing up our Profile Photos to reflect the season! I know you have a favorite Christmas photo stashed somewhere! Or just photoshop an old one like what I did! Spread the LOVE

Because I'm curious, how long, on average, do you spend on an article?

I just joined HubPages and would like to upload a photo to my profile. Everytime I do it, I just get a blank. No photos uploaded even though the file is .jpg and the size is less than 4MB. What am I doing wrong?
