What Is This Thing Called a Blogging Voice?

The New Year is here and some may have decided to ramp up their blogging efforts. Some may be new to blogging and are trying to find blogstheir footing.

If I could impart one thing I’ve learned from my journey here is that blogging in your own voice is what will bring people to your blog and keep them coming back.

So...what is this blogging voice?

In a nutshell, it is being who you are...it is what will distinguish your post from most any other out there that might be discussing the same or similar topic.

For the most part, write as you would speak.

 

Writing in your own voice lets us get to know who you are. You might not think so but through your posts, your topics, your thoughts, and how you share them, the layers of the onion are peeled back.

 

Ask yourself this...why is it that you’ve chosen to follow and read some of the members here?   

You don’t have to answer here but seriously, ask yourself why.

There are, however, some exceptions when you might consider putting a sock in it...

~If how you speak is peppered with all sorts of words that are best be left for sailors...consider tempering it unless you truly don’t care if anyone reads your blog

~If what you say might land you in your attorney’s office ...stifle yourself unless you just like being contentious

~If grammar was not your best subject...ask someone to proofread your post and follow Marte Cliff 

~If you choose to “borrow” someone else’s voice...don’t.  Readers are wise to this and will not waste time stopping by.

 

Ok...now start writing!
