Author Photos With Prop?

Friday’s EzineArticles blog treat for you is a quick peak into EzineArticles expert authors who have integrated their expertise into their author photo. Out of 27,621 unique authors, 2,195 have uploaded photos so far (8%).

What did I learn from today’s Author Photos with Prop review?

1) If you’re going to use a prop, be certain it has something to do with your expertise.

2) Your kids, spouse, friends or pets should not be in your author photo unless they further solidify your expertise.

3) Closeup shots are better than full body shots.

4) The easiest to view photos were the ones with white knockout (Lawrence Cole) or a transparent background around the author.

My apologies if I didn’t include your author photo in today’s mix as my eyes blurred after reviewing the first 1000 photos.

What did you think of today’s author photo montage?

Very cool, you know this is an inspiration to all authors to make their pictures tell a story and this will help them.

Can anyone recommend one or more of the sources for softwear to consolidate the distribution of EzineArticles to multiple directories?

Is this a good strategy to follow?

Many thanks….Ramon Greenwood

In anything I do on the web, I believe in having my pictures uploaded. People can see me better and get to know me better in more “human touch” than I do without my personal pictures.
