Multiple personality

Last Update: January 30, 2020

Hello Out there in WA Land. I hope the day is going well or has gone well or is starting well. Geography is often hard to get your head around with time zones.

Do you ever feel like you are not yourself? I do. Sometimes you find your self feeling like you are being forced in to behaving like someone you are not.


On WA we can behave like ourselves and make our own decisions which is great. It makes you feel free and powerful so you can release your inner X Wing Pilot.

When I created this Avatar it reflected my mood. I was strong and confident and I could do anything. These were the feelings I associated with this image.

I had a great day last week

So I came up with WA Man and Dasher the Wonder Whippet.

I had just made my first big sale and Dash was responding well to his new diet and I felt invincible. Again I associated feelings to an Image.

One day I was feeling relaxed and confident. I felt like I could solve the problems of the world and this is when WA07 was born the secret agent with the license to Affiliate.

Yesterday I was a bit Frustrated

I had seen an accident in the morning, my illness was playing up and work was getting me down so along cam Mark Hulk.

It is interesting that when I felt frustrated and a little angry that I went for Mark Hulk. Hulk is a superhero but he is full of chaos and anger. Ultimately he does the right thing but he is slightly out of control.

I used to get called Hulk by my wife because I would lose my temper a lot and smash things up. A few years ago I was not a good person to be around.

I can say that I have turned myself around and I am now actively practicing positive behavior.

So then we come to today and I was feeling a little confused. Yesterday we lost a family member to Cancer which brings back all sorts of feelings to me. I don't feel bad I just don't feel good and I am not really myself. It is like I am tumbling through my day so this is when HOMARK was born and he is my Avatar today 30/01/2020 (in case you are reading at a later date)


There is actually a lesson here. As you may know I work in Graphic design and I spend my days creating Logos and Banners. Or designing exhibition stands so, for me, images speak more than words. You can show feelings or humor just by picking the correct image. You can also ruin a perfectly good article by using an image that does not match the content.

You may write the best blog ever but, if your images don't work then you will turn some of your readers positive energy in to negative.

Product Images

For those of you like me who advertise an actual physical product, please don't use poor quality images from google as people may view this as an amateur action. Most manufacturers have images available or your Affiliates will have something you can use. It is all part of this game.

SO in conclusion

Use great images to support your great articles. Make sure the customer receives visual impact from your site and articles. This will truly help convert customers to your way of thinking.

Thanks for reading.

Excellent points here Mark! Very true, using the wrong image or something unrelated can totally ruin an article. But, on the other hand, using the right ones can make it so much the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words." Love your avatars you've made here, btw!

So sorry to hear of your loss...losing someone to cancer is never an easy thing to go through. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Best wishes ~Sherry

I believe in the Preacher's words:
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. . . .

Thank you Mark for your input and great dialogue. I know for myself that those bad days can come unexpected. You have given inspiration to put aside the bad days and really on the good ones.
My current involvement at WA has been a bit sketchy. But, that will not keep me down. The first step to climb a mountain is, to take that first step then another and another to reach the peak. That is the goal.

Mark, you are an awesome designer and a very creative person. Your post came right in time as I'm writing an article for my website about using the images in the right way. I will reference your post there. Thank you!

I'm sorry that this is a difficult day for you. Please accept my condolences for your loss. Cancer, agh!
