I think it is the Rooster's fault. He is certifiably deaf. He has hearing aids. Sheesh, just to make myself heard I had to get loud. Mind you, even he tells me not to shout! This happens a lot on the phone. My dfil liked to talk to me on the phone as he could hear me. Now we suspected that he couldn't hear either. vbsigh
I answered the phone from a friend I hadn't heard from and I started yapping away and she broke in (loudly) to tell me not to shout. It kinda stumbled me for the whole day that the Rooster might be right about some things!
So I totally got it that capital letters on the computer meant SHOUTING. I don't want to shout. I want to speak with a quiet voice. Here's hoping!
This lesson is all about voice. A blog should have a recognizable voice and be unique to the blog writer.
So I need to need describe myself in 3 adjectives and I don't want to use loud.
~ excitable, enthusiastic, and encouraging
Is this how I talk? I think so. I'm pretty optimistic.
Hmm, I'm also told to slow down, speech wise, I think.
Who would I be talking to?
Hopefully someone who is easily motivated and just needs some encouraging that a project is doable and fun. It should be about fun! Interested. A little back and forth with questions, suggestions and praise reports makes for great conversations.
5 things I read and why:
only 5? I start out my day with inspirational writings. That could be 5 in itself but I need to start out from a right perspective and with some motivation to do/live/be better. For sheer pleasure I like young people's fantasy for good overcoming evil and the hero squeezing the heroine's hand! I was so excited, maybe loud, in my discovery of The Chronicles of Narnia. I like biographies. For blogs I prefer to learn things so I'm prone to blogs that share process. I'm rather eclectic in my likes so my blog list tends to be heavy on mixed media but I will include a variety of interesting, informative, enlightening, inspiring blogs. I'm all about upbeat, happy, and probably lean to the more conservative/traditional without being too stuffy.
I don't watch tv but do enjoy a good movie. Usually the house is quiet, but if I want music I like LOUD. :(
Now we are supposed to ask others; what's my voice? and what do I sound like.
Writing should never be a chore, a job. I do enjoy writing my blog. I hope it sounds like me!
