As I mentioned in my year-end article, “The Top Voiceover Blog Posts of 2013″, more voiceover artists started, rejuvenated, and/or continued writing blogs in the past year than in any I’ve noticed since I started in 2009. Why? I’m sure there are as many reasons as there are bloggers now putting pen to paper, er, fingers to the keyboard, for the increase.
I started this blog for the sole reason that I had a burning passion to be a voiceover talent, and I wanted to share the ride with others. I wasn’t concerned about SEO and web presence. I figured that if you provide content that others want to read and WILL continually visit to read more, you’re taking care of your SEO and web presence anyway.
My mission for writing this blog is still the same as it was on day one, and you can still read it at the top right corner to this day :
Using Social Media To Educate & Entertain About The Profession Of Voiceover
That said, there are actually many beneficial reasons to write your own blog and there are a few skills you should work on along the way. I found this infographic the other day, and, even though it ends as an ad for a social blogging platform called, glipho, it still spells out many of the benefits, questions, concerns and skills I’m asked about by others who are ‘thinking’ about writing a blog for their voiceover business.
Give it a look! And, if you’ve got a blog, or are in the process of starting one, let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.
If you do have a voiceover blog and you don’t see yourself listed in my VO Blogroll, please leave your URL in the comments section below so I can add you to the list. Thanks!
