    Mmmm. Maybe my self photo, is better, I just don't want to reveal my own identity on internet, how about using fake name with real photo? how about you caretaker2007, do you use real or fake photo?

    Many ppl like writers, actors and singers use fake names. Personally I think I would go with the fake name and pic. What chances are there that they will ever meet you in person and know it is a fake? Depends on what you are promoteing and your own comfort level.

    If you have a picture of your self that looks good and professional then use it, if not you could use another person's pic. I think you should use your real picture, I don't see any danger in putting your real name and picture online.

    I believe it depends on what your long term goal is.

    If you are just looking to promote other peoples products for a few bucks then use a pen name and photo.

    However if your long term goal is to build a cult like following, sell your own products, do seminars etc. then you had better start building your brand now by using real info.

    people trust real people more than "imaginary" ones.

    Just my 2cents.

    BTW, keep in mind some people have a face for radio.

    Seriously

    people respond better to "attractive" people regardless of their sex. If you're a good looking person (in reality not in ego-land) use your pic. Otherwise use a stock photo of someone
