It’s been quite a while again since my last post. When I started this blog over 11 years ago, my goal was to write about one of my greatest passions: voiceover work. At the time I still had a corporate job, one that I mostly enjoyed. Nothing is ever completely perfect, of course. I had to travel quite a bit more than I wanted, though the upside of all that travel turned out to be opportunities to connect with a bunch of my co-travelers in the world of voiceover and to do so in person rather than just online.
The VO-BB was a wonderful resource for arranging those in-person connections, and it’s still one of my favorite corners of the Internet. A quiet little spot where folks of all sorts of levels of experience in voiceover hang out and exchange thoughts, ideas, encouragement and, well, most than a little fun.
Of course, in the 11+ years since this blog started, Facebook has grown to its massive size and reach and you’ll find lots of voiceover related groups there. Some are quite helpful. Some, not so much. Since different people have different opinions about which are which, I’ll leave it to you to make up your own mind on that question. Much the same can be said about the various voiceover groups on LinkedIn, though I would suggest the percentage of “not so much” is somewhat higher there.
Back when I started there were just a tiny group of us blogging about voiceover. Now, the number is legion and climbing. When I started, I tried to keep an up-to-date blogroll of every voiceover blog. But a few years ago, I realized that not only was that becoming an impossible task, I couldn’t even keep up with which of the links in my current blogroll are dead or very nearly so. It’s long past time that I make a thorough clearing of the underbrush.
My goal of writing about voiceover remains. My desire to get back to posting on a more regular basis has been growing of late so I will do my best to be more regular about these posts. And, to wrap up these thoughts for today, here’s one last thing I’d like to suggest. Whatever else you do in your interactions with your voiceover co-travelers, don’t be a dick.
