Avatars tell us a lot about the way you are , the way you think & a lot more.What exactly made you to have the avatar you have?Or is it just for the sake of it you have the avatar?Are you happy with the avatar you have now?How often do you change them? My avatar says not to talk much , to talk to the point.I am happy with my avatar & do not have in my mind to change it in the near future. what about you?

My avatar is not so complicate. It's simple to tell that this avatar's owner is a dog lover. I don't know if anyone can tell from the avatar that I like the outdoors. The avatar is a cropping from a larger picture with my former dog in a field of hay, somewhere in the mountains. Theese are the things I like the most: dogs and being in the middle of the nature.

Hiya inu, Dogs that is a very nice photo of your Dog. I am not sure what kind is it exactly. But it does not matter to me as I love all kinds of Dogs big, small the lot. I cannot keep any here though so I make do without them. So you don´t have him now then?

Hiya inu, Have found the Photo of Binne. She is lovely in that Photo so solemn and kind loving eyes. Sorry to hear about your other Dog she was lovely also. Nera is a nice name for a Dog too. I really like these kind of Dogs although I am fond of all Dogs really.

My avatar is the picture of Nera, an Airedale Terrier girl. I had to let her go last December, at age 13, as she was very sick during 2009. So, Nera is gone. Now I have another Airedale girl, Binne. You can see her pictures in my profile.

Hi krupesh! I like your avatar too! I think it suits you just perfectly. My avatar is my birthstone, an Opal! I am a Libra. My birthday is October 10th. An old myLotter friend found it for me and it's been there ever since. Sorry to say that he's not around here much anymore, but I think I know where to find him!

An avatar in mylot is nothing but a personal identity that differentiate one from the other and I change my avatar in mylot very often to accommodate the moods I am in. I may use cartoon or my real picture, I don't emphasize so much on avatars but it can be a personal trademark in the virtual world.

I use differnt avatars on differnst sites. I have no one in paricler that I use. I would say my favorite is one I uses at two or three sites. it is from a book cover for a novle that i read a few years ago. I realey love the the story of that book, it was first in seirs of what would be a favortie writer. the avatar shows a us millitary sinper looking thur a scope and is about to shot a terrorist being held hostage.

I don't think my avatar can ever really describe me or my personality, sweetie. I just took it as it looked nice. TATA.

My avatar tells that I'm famous.. or that I try to be.. haha. Actually I just used it on Twitter when I had a lot of followers, and my username was famous something.. I can't remember what it was, but people use to tweet me all the time asking if I'm famous and how I'm famous .. So I just started using that username and avatar everywhere. Maybe so when they're scrolling down the page they stop when they see my name and think... Who is that? I guess it's just a way of being remembered, so my avatar goes with my name.

Aha! So that's why you change it so often! I wondered why you have a different avatar each day. I hope you'll find the one that suits you soon.

Well mine is a picture of my son dressed like a pirate, so I am not so sure what that says about me. I guess it says I am a mom and I think my own child is cute and so I put him up as my avatar. I actually wanted to post something kind of personal but I did not want to put a picture of myself up there and I did not want to show my son's whole face so that is why I chose the picture that I did.

Hello ladym33, It shows that your love your son so much.Most of the people put their loved ones as their avatar.But why you dont want to show your son's face?

Hi there krupesh Well humbug has two meanings. There are sweets/candies or someone who likes a bit of mischief. I am both hahahaha. As I am more sweet than a mischief maker I opted to have the sweet humbugs as my avatar.

Hiya Humbug, Just found you again. I still miss Woolies too and the C & A and Marks & Spencers and Currys and W.H. Smiths being a regular bookworm I would spend ages in there when I was not married and had no children. That soon changed but that time I spent pouring through all the Books I could find I loved it. I did buy some too that´s when I could buy Books freely and no counting pennies so much as I have to do now. I like those flavoured Sweets too I have tried them more than once. I liked the British Home Stores too and Sainsburys none of that here. A far cry from what I was used to.

Hiya Humbug, Now that made me think of how I have not eaten a Humbug sweet for ages and ages. I really liked them too but not my teeth (grin). If you like Humbugs you can´t really be a mischief maker not really. Humbugs used to buy them from Woolworths in the Wolverhampton Town Centre and the Floors were still made of Wood.

HI angel, i picked up this face from net. I dont know who is she, but there are some hidden sensations on her look. Thats why she is my avatar now. Its true that i did paint a lot but now, i have given up due to various reasons. Take care.

Hiya shibham, I wondered where you had got it from. I wonder who she is too. She looks very mystical and she is very pretty too. Did you paint before then if so why don´t you paint now? Is it because of your Job and the long hours you are there. I imagine it´s something like that. Have the materials for painting gone up in price as well then? I don´t know as my Husband used to paint abstract but he does not do it now either and I try to get him to take it up again. Told you I was around here but not for long as I have to finish in a while. I was just browsing to see who I could find here. You take care too.

Hiya shibham, Nice avatar too is it of an Artist that is famous in your Country? I don´t know her face personally well it´s familiar to me because of when I have been responding back to you but who is she exactly is she a singer or an Actress or both? Maybe she is a Dancer then? Maybe it´s a secret okay that´s fine with me she is very pretty. Do you paint Pictures then of People I mean? Have a great Day shib.

The avatar I have is one that I have had since joining last year in April. I like it because it tells others that the rose is my favorite flower, even though there are plenty of thorns. I have rose bushes in my back yard, and I will be putting some in the front yard inj the fall. I don't intend to change my avatar either as I like it, and I like roses. Take care and have a very good day.

Hiya rosek. Hope you don´t change your avatar as I love Roses (flowers) of all colours in particular pink all kinds of shades of pink. Roses that grow around here are mainly deep red so I plan to plant Pink Roses if I can Shrub ones if I can too. I have to consult at the Flower Shop about that one. Nice avatar.

I selected that avatar deliberately. You can see it is an angel, with magic wand. I hope I can make others happy. :) So I guess, it reflects part of my nature. :)

I agree with you that avatars tell something about the person using it. I think I can understand the meaning of what your avatar says.I'm happy with my default mylot avatar. It's a happy one bouncing out from somewhere. Since I know I'm a pessimistic guy, I want my avatar to be a happy one. I like using default avatars from all those sites I'm there, to be anonymous, normal and natural. I think I won't change in the near future but I think I will change it someday when I want to have a change...

My avatar tells what makes me happy and calm. The deep blue color of the flower is gorgeous....I love blue. I also love flowers and nature in general. I am glad I found this when I was looking for an avatar. I may chnage it some time in the future, as I thought about doing a seasonal one, but i have not decided yet and i am not tired of this one.

My avatar has actually been the same since I've been a member of mylot. Mine is actually a picture of myself and the reason that I choose to use a picture of myself as my avatar is because of the fact that I want people that are on here to realize the fact that I am a genuine person. I have no reason to hide who I am. In addition to that, I don't think that there is any kind of symbol in the world that would represent me better than a picture of myself.

Sometimes people use avatar to hide who they really are. It's like our counter ego. We sometimes represent ourselves with avatar so far from reality.
