According to my WordPress Dashboard, this is my 250th blog post. Really? I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun. If you’re a new reader today, or a friend who has been here for any of the past 249 entries…Thank You!
When I started this blog, my purpose was to use social media to educate and entertain anyone interested about the profession of voiceover. Granted, in the beginning, it was mainly designed to help my family understand a little bit more about why I was spending so much time in the closet, talking to myself. But as time and my voiceover endeavors have progressed I feel that I’ve learned how to really use my blog as an educational tool (Edge Studio Tips, Top Voiceover Blog Posts) and an entertaining medium (Match Game VO, Fun VO videos) for voice talent and others interested in this crazy and addictive biz.
Even though I’ve learned a lot about myself and my place thus far in the VO world after 250 articles, I’ve actually come to learn more from reading what other fabulously talented artists, and friends, have taught me…
Bob Souer…that it shouldn’t be all about you.
Terry Daniel…that it can be about you, IF you’re sharing your passion openly and honestly.
Dave Courvoisier…that you should give your readers things they can use in their everyday.
Bobbin Beam…that you can be professional both with your voice and your words.
Peter O’Connell…not to take the whole thing so seriously.
Paul Strikwerda…that blogging about life is a fun as blogging about voiceover.
Andy Boyns…that you don’t have speak the same language, to speak the same language.
Marc Scott…that you should share with others what you’ve learned along your own journey.
Doug Turkel…that when you have Great things to share, people will read them.
Lisa Rice…smile and your words sound better.
Randye Kaye…that having a passionate cause outside of VO is worth sharing.
There are many more VO bloggers and friends that I didn’t mention who inspire me to keep this blog alive, and I will, with more fun, entertainment and education about the ever-changing and exciting world of voiceover. Here’s to the next 250!!
(Special thanks to my daughters, Abby and Gracie, my step-sons, Kyle and Tyler, and my wife, Rhonda, for putting up with this crazy passion of mine, both behind the closed closet door and in front of the computer screen. Love you!)
