      I don't think it's necessary to use a real photo in order to build a relationship. I think many people have gotten to know and trust me without having to see my photo. People watch for consistencies and inconsistencies in one's character and habits. Time allows a bond and relationship to form with or without the picture. Besides, only half of the photos people use are really them anyways.

      Thanks KCC Big Country, but having your picture makes a whole big difference, and pictures speak thousands words, I agree with you that you can make good relationship without pictures as you have done and consistency is what matters most

      Very true!

      I think that the relationship evolves out of consistency, persistence etc. One can only be consistent. The user at the other end builds a relationship with you, rather than you building it.

      Of course, one can always study the user behavior and then define a strategy for the user to be able to relate to you in a particular way.

      Wow! did I say all that?

      Nice hub!!

      Oderog, this is information that I sure can use, as I want to promote my hubs as much as possible. One thing that I agree with you on, is not to just comment on a hub without reading it, just to say that you made a comment. I appreciate when people really do read my hubs, and I try not to comment on a hub unless I've read it and agree or even like it. I also appreciate it when I know the person with who I am dialoging with, I mean I like to match a real face with the comment. I do however appreciate anyone that offers a true comment. Thanks for sharing, and I am going to put these tips to use in promoting my hubs.

      @fastreta - Great to hear, actually when commenting

      on somebody's content you are providing some reflection

      on his contents and how well he has done or should be

      improve or what point he has missed out. You can also

      do Guest posting on other peoples hubs - writing a long

      informative hub as a comment which is related to the hub

      oderog-- what you say is so true, actually when I first began my blogging career I use the picture I have right now, so it's been up for nearly two years, except for the one month I took it off, and then there was a backlash, so back to the "famous" shield picture. In other words, consistancy is the key which you so wonderfully pointed out in this hub. excellent work consider this bookmakred and Stumbled Upon!

      That's right Rebecca E, as we always know a picture speaks thousands words, and most likely a picture would really attract someone to read your hub or blog than even the headline itself.

      Thanks for the useful tips.

      I have the problem that I blog about topics related to my day job and it would be a problem it became known that I was! That's why I have the calculator avatar and not entirely original nom de plume.

      But in general I agree people should use their real selves online - it builds trust, and makes relationships work better.
