How many times have some of you old-timers changed? And, why?
I changed because I perceived that I could possibly be labelled as " Oh, that Christian!" Well, I am not THAT kind of Christian, you see, though I am a true Christian.
And, you know who that is, of course!
OooOK...... So now you're that Christian in the Christian Santa Claws Band....
Wow... Who would have guessed?
Know any ACDC Covers?
If you are here for reasons that include people recognizing your work, your avatar icon is important. It is branding - it helps people know what to expect when they see it again.
Your icon can also send its own message, ao if you think that it is sending the wrong image (literally and figuratively), yes, you should change it. However, those who flip their icons periodically are destroying brand recognition. You don't see big companies changing their logos on a whim and you shouldn't either.
This is true for me. I changed my avatar recently, because I did not feel my original image reflected my persona as well as the new avatar does. However, according to Google analytics, my profile views took a nose dive right after the change.
I am wondering if I should explain why I changed my Avatar on my profile page. I had my original Avatar for 18 months. It seems people are not always fond of changes.
I am perplexed by people changing their avatars frequently. Just as I am growing fond of one, it changes...
W.E, I mean't no disrespect to your comments. I think for me personally my numbers dropped because some of my readers were unsure if I was male or female with my original avatar. The new avatar makes it pretty clear what my gender is. I have noticed that there are many in the general public, who prefer to read about certain topics written by their preferred gender.
Last week I changed my avatar.
I did have a picture of my folding stool, with my reading (should that be writing?) glasses, pen and notebook on it, under a tree in my front garden.
Friday morning I buried my beloved kitten, Scout. My new avatar is a photograph of her sitting on my desk the day I became her human.
To me, the original avatar showed part of what I am. The new one shows shows part of who I am.
I don't place much importance at all in an avatar here on HP, mainly because I have little to no interest in building a "brand" on my HP account. And based on my traffic and my income here, my readers could care less too.

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?

Over the past year, I've changed a few hub titles to give them better keywords and get them further up on Google. However, there have been a couple of hubs that just seemed to get "lost" when I do this. For example, I wrote a hub about two weeks ago and it was on Google for a few hours...

Do you or have you ever changed your profile avatar? Why?Whilst I believe most people don't do this I have noticed a few people who seem to do this quite regularly.

I know we can completely change our hub titles but I wondered if the first title we used is still ours or any there after for that matter even though we changed it?

Based SOLELY on Holy Scripture, AS WRITTEN, (not according to man's "philosophies" or "prejudices") what EXACTLY is stopping YOU "personally" from Believing The Gospel and then being Born Again through Baptism, as...
