What are your Avatar habits? Sources?

  1. I like to change my avatar often, at least every couple of days. I do have several that are my favorite and I use them more frequently than others.

    My favorite place to get avatars is www.photobucket.com seems they have just about anything you're looking for.

    My favorite irritation regarding avatars are those who are never ever changed.

    when i come across images on the web that i like, i grab a copy for use as an avatar, icon, or desktop image.

    i've also made some custom animated avatars using photoshop.

    my present avatar is from our christmas card celebrating our daughter's recovery.


    ... and over the hill is when you just can't anymore...

    I'm boring. I tend to keep the same avatar for 6 months to 1 year, perhaps even longer in some cases.

    I go to www.avatarity.com for interesting avatars.

    Honestly Don I've never thought about your avatar never changing, I guess because the kitty is always dancing. I love that kitty too!

    guess i change mine whenever i get sick of the one that i have...or when im shirking housework and looking for an excuse to putter around on the puter...which is acually more often than not!!!
    don't have any particular place that i troll for avis...i usually just use google images....i dont spend a lot of time on boston terrier websites, i swear.....

    I'm one of those that changes pretty regularly, too.

    I'm always finding SOMETHING that tickles my funnybone, and then I just HAVE to use it as an avi!
    I get mine from everywhere and anywhere..just whatever I come across that strikes me as either funny, different, lovely, or meaningful.. I save it and resize it if need be.

    Ha! Me, too... I see stuff and "Oh ! I've gotta save that for an avi sometime!"
    I have a folder devoted just to avitar stuff.

    I change with the seasons or holidays.

    I love searching for cool pics and enjoy creating avis for others. Tickles me when they love 'em.

    I use tons of different sites........

    I love to change mine often. Now, thanks to Siri, I've got one that changes itself, so it's never boring!
