Personally, I identify Avatar selection as an important part of branding and promotion in the world of online writing.
So in the course of reading the forum thread, I figured Id share that one writer Cagsil that have read for years here, IN MY OPINION, would be better served with an avatar such as:
Again, i dont see Avatars as a reflection of personality but rather a potential element of interest that could attract a reader or identify your brand in some way (perhaps across multiple networks)
Often, others can see a different approach when they have some distance from the matter ... so does anybody out there think they have a good suggestion for branding/identity of HUbbers they follow?
Or you could try the "train method" suggest an avatar for the hubber above .. but that really only works if you have followed their work. Thought it might be fun and informative for some and help get the concept of branding/promo more into the forefront.
Sorry, I have a new editor in one of my other jobs. I have become a little defensive, in fact when I posted the above I was filled with rage.( and lots of self doubt) My new editor is seriously lacking in sensitivity (and honesty)
If you're talking about the silver swivel chair then yes. I also have one of you sitting in a chair that does have a back, but the chair cannot be seen in the picture and I know it has a back to the chair because you're leaning backwards in the chair. I cannot go into any more about the picture, so don't ask.
My choice for Ms. Hollie Thomas Shall I explain the rationale behind the "holly" made into the shape of the divine feminine (reminiscent of the Da Vinci Code) leading to a decided yet subtle point? Well, I guess I just did. Yes, that is how I visualize you, HT.
Cags, Supergirl will return after the holidays. Right now I'm getting ready for T-Day then I have my Christmas MM costume. Besides, how can you miss MM if she doesn't occasionally go away? BTW, You are looking very Reality Bytes-ish these days, my friend.
Even as a prepubescent little boy I always thought Alanna was easily and by far the most beautiful woman in comics, and always right there by her heroic love's side.
And, I don't recall her character name in this Star Trek episode (I'm not THAT much of a geek), but I always thought Nancy Kovak was easily and by far the most beautiful of all of Capt Kirk's romantic interests . . . and, that her tears intoxicated men into forsaking all in their interest to adore her, made her a very compelling character.
And, Nancy Kovack herself is a remarkably interesting woman - stunningly beautiful, particularly well-suited as the conniving temptress (as in the original "Jason & The Argonauts") she was in fact a very smart and very benevolent woman . . . at the height of her career she left behind her standing as one of the most sought after beauties in Hollywood, when she married conductor Zubin Mehta, to devote herself to her marriage and fund raising - her charitable functions are considered THE events of the season by the upper-crust types and she is regarded as the ultimate hostess by the elite . . . using all her charms and station to raise money for her charitable causes.
I'm doing fine. Just returned from taking one of my many grandson's out to lunch and to shop for his birthday gift . . . all the pizza I could eat and an evil electronic glove to electrocute his brother & sister with. Now I'm just lingering around the house waiting anxiously for your review of my . . .
. . . how are you doing today - I hope the day unfolds with a bounty of some of your favorite things . . . get some really good won ton soup, curl-up under your coziest blanket, and rent 1947's "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir" tonight.If anyone is prettier than Nancy Kovack, it's Gene Tierney in this film . . . she was always attractive, but something about her in this film, her age, the lighting, I don't know but she doesn't look just so radiantly gorgeous anywhere else as she does in this movie. Even if you've seen it before, in the end you will cry the most hauntingly peaceful cry . . . grandly sweeping score by Bernard Herrmann contributes so much (as he always does).
I'll make this avatar one of my many stored away for a rainy day, it seems to call to me. I don't know what it is, but I do know it is very, very special to me, among the many others of my best friend in the world.....
Here is Kimberly; a compelling woman from an unfolding story, told in single a haunting image . . . I only know bits of her from fragments and glimpses here, but in a fleeting and non-detailed manner, I feel I know her deeply - Kimberly, stepping out of an ensnaring blackness and into light, revealing a beauty that defines her and that she defines ~
First, I want to say I think hubpages has made a lot of positive improvements to the comments features and has allowed hubbers to manage comments more easily now that we can approve and reply to all comments from our accounts page.The one change to this feature I would like to see is ensuring our...
Hi,On the "Hubbers You Are Following" page, it'd be nice to have a total number displayed, so I don't have to manually count them. If it's there somewhere and I'm just not seeing it, could someone point it out to me?It'd also be nice to have an asterisk or some other indication of...
We need a better way to classify and group our followers and the people we are following,here is my suggestion at the very least.For Followers.A way to determine follower loyalty levels,perhaps a simple scoring system only to be seen by you that will tell you how many times a follower has commented...
I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.
For me, the Best Photographer award is a no-brainer. http://aviannovice.hubpages.com/ is the best photographer I've seen on HP by a long shot, but she only has 317 followers and many hubbers may not have seen her work. (Follow the link and see her work for yourself if you don't already have a...
Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could facilitate the process of newly written material.
