“Blogging is a waste of time. Both writing and reading. It’s nothing but ‘how-to’ lists, self-serving promotion, and only done for SEO.”
The above is paraphrased, taken from more than one tweet, post and article I’ve seen over the past few weeks.
I happen to disagree.
Admittedly there are bloggers who write only to show their expertise with a list of ‘how-to’s', promote their latest accomplishment, or drive more hits to their site. These are blogs I don’t read.
Why do I read the voiceover blogs I do?
- To keep up to date with news & trends in the voiceover business & community.
- To learn more about the personality and life happenings of my friends in the vo business.
- To get a free voiceover education from those who have traveled this road before me and are willing to share.
If you consider these reasons a waste of time, then don’t waste your time reading any further.
Have a Great week behind the mic!
