Isn't it time for a new avatar or photo?

I don't know about you but I spend a fair amount of time on myLot. In fact it is my homepage when I open my browser. After a while I get bored with the same picture of me, day after day, no matter how much I liked the photo, or still like the photo otherwise, I just get tired of the same one all the time. So periodically I change my photo. I also like to put up origional photos of me participating in a hobby, or outdoors or something like that. My newest avatar is of me doing both, my hobby is pole dancing for fitness, my pole happens to be outdoors because there is no room for it inside. I also like my avatar photos to be eye catching. And so unusual that people feel the need to click on the pic and go to my profile to see it enlarged. That makes every post on myLot a billboard to get people to my profile page, my discussions, and the other content on my homepage. So what do you think when you post a new avatar or photo. Do you think about it intriguing people and thus leading them back to your profile page? Do you just pick any old head shot and just throw it on here. Do you take one of the most recent photos that you have, the one you consider most attractive or provacative? I have numerous photos of me in my computer from the last several years. The most recent ones though are actually screenshots that I take off of the videos that I record when I am out practicing sometimes, it's a great way to get the shots you want, be the photog, and the dancer all at the same time.

Hey there, Yes i too love to change my avatar from time to time. It gets broing if u keep the same all the time. And as we all are here to have fun then y not do new things and make it more spicy. I upload outdoor, indoor or any pic which i think is good enough to be as my avatar. BTW yr new avatar is cool. Cheers, Tutul

Thank you. I think you are right, since myLot is my homepage I see the photo of my avatar every day every time that I open my browser. Thank you for the compliment about my avatar also. The move is called the gemini, when done with the other leg it is known as a capricorn. I really like those great big muscles of yours on your avatar. You look hot!!

I've been a member here at Mylot for about 8 months now and have had two different avatars. The only reason I changed my avatar was because I got married and my hair looks different now, so I thought I'd change it. I will say though that I recognize a lot of my friends by their avatar. So if it gets changed often I may not notice them as much. I guess it's hard to say. I enjoy when people don't change their avatar often because I feel like it makes them stand out to me in this huge community that is Mylot. That of course is just my personal opinion!

Try using a screen capture software to capture the picture that you are trying to use at a lower picture quality that takes up less space. That works for me sometimes.
