I wish I could say I was “all-natural”. Instead, I’m a product of every food additive and preservative known to man, based on what I eat.
When I saw that phrase, it reminds of the voices that are in vogue commercially: all-natural, or to be more accurate, “conversational”.
It is difficult for me to slip into “conversational” mode, although it is something I’m working, and I’ve decided it make it a priority this week.
I listen to demos out there that have that vibe, and those are good training tools for me, as I work to improve my VO technique. Marc Scott, who I met at the Columbus VO conference this year, is a great example of that type of voice, and I’m sure there are many others.
I seem to be somewhat less wordy than usual this week – although still nerdy – so I’ll sign off now, and let readers get back to more important things in their lives.
P.S. Anyone that manages to makes it through one of my blog posts knows I always invite readers to share their thoughts on what I’ve written. Unfortunately, the only “responses” seem to be spam. The most common one goes something like “I see your site needs some unique content. Writing manually is time consuming, but there is tool for this task.”
Unique content? Every word of it already is! LOL. Oh well. That’s the price I pay for being in the digital world. But it’s fun. In my next post, I’ll try to remember some very funny and unique things that folks are doing to combat spam and other digital intrusions into our lives.
How about you readers? Do any of you have good tips to share on keeping your website free from spam? I’d love to hear from you, just click Reply To This Post, and let ‘er rip.
Until then, keep your best voice forward, and stay natural. Take care.
