Revealing The Human Behind The Avatar

The first ever FuelMyBlog book is complete. It is a 64 page look at the human beings behind the avatars. An avatar is a representation of yourself online. Some people use cartoons, some use abstract photos and some use their very own face.

For this book members of FuelMyBlog were asked to generate a photo of themselves with their avatar printed on a piece of paper and placed in front of their face. Then the FuelMyBlog member could write 100 words about themself and their blogs. The photos were uploaded to Flickr and then compiled by Blurb into a book. Blurb is a great way to get photos put together into one complete book.

Also a great thing is that 15% of the sale of each book sold to Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres.

Here is my submission for the book.

BenSpark: The Human Behind the Avatar

I’m very excited about seeing my photo and writ up in print. Kevin and Sylvie at FuelMyBlog really have great ideas to get bloggers to participate in things on and offline. Great job guys!
