Last weekend, when I shared my picks for 10 Top Voiceover Blog Posts This Week, I mentioned a few of the vo thoughts that were rattling around in my head. I figured today was as good as any to expand and share more.
So, here are…
3 Voiceover Thoughts In My Head
1. Voices.com VOX Talk Podcast Returns
If you were not familiar with the VOX Talk Podcast, it began in 2007 with episodes that aired every week, for two years. Many experts in the fields of coaching, technology, and marketing shared their advice and tips via the VOX Talk Podcast. In addition, a number of professional voice talent shared their experiences and recommendations on business, agents, recording techniques, and more during the two-year run.
Now Voices.com has brought back the VOX Talk Podcast. You can listen online, download the episode via mp3 to your computer, or subscribe thru iTunes. I learned a TON when the series ran before and am already signed up via iTunes again for more. The first returning episode ran July 3, so don’t miss out.

2. More Than Just A Voice – The Real Secret To Voiceover Success
This is the title of the soon-to-be-released book from my good friend and fellow vo talent/blogger, Dave ‘Courvo’ Courvoisier. You know Dave from his many online vo efforts, including his blog, Voice Acting In Vegas, which is considered one of the best and most read vo resources online.
This book has been a labor of love in compiling over 2,500 blog entries into a resource that will be used by those wanting to know more about the voiceover business to those who need a refreshed about about the latest trends and techniques.
Knowing Dave as I have over the past few years, I can tell you that this book will be exceptionally professional, full of every-day tips and advice, and one that every voice talent should have close at hand at all times.

3. Voiceover Blogging Community Comes To The Rescue For FaffCamp II
A little over a week ago, Amy Snively and Lauren McCullough put out the word that without a certain number of registrants by the deadline, FaffCamp II wouldn’t happen in March, 2015. Fellow voiceover bloggers went to work, and within 24 hours, over a dozen influential vo blogs were sharing information and advice for others to heed about registering and attending this one-of-a-kind voiceover gathering.
Many of those who posted articles about attending FaffCamp were those who had attended a prior Faffcon unconference. Being able to share personal experiences and testimonials as to why ALL vo talent should attend FaffCamp helped push the registrations over the top, and FaffCamp II WILL NOW HAPPEN in 2015.
I am proud and honored to be a Faffcon alum and a member of such a group of voiceover talent who use their blogs for the betterment of other vo talent and the industry as a whole.
