And the best thing is:  it's all been saved for posterity thanks to our moderator and also today, a contributor:  WoVO Pro, voice actor, and content marketing superstar Pamela Muldoon.  Our awesome guests were Derek Chappell, and Anne Ganguzza.  Dave Courvoisier added a thing or two...hey!  wait-a-minute!...that's me!  A number of other … [Read More...]

Never a Dull Moment

Seriously... the pace of our modern world has no parallel...no comparable period in human history.

'Giving plenty of notice on this one, 'cause you'll want to be there...especially if you've ever found yourself saying:  "I don't get Twitter."  --or--  "How do I find leads on LinkedIn?" Interestingly, we'll be using a successful social media community-making exercise (the Tweetchat) do discuss this topic (as we do every other week).

The Power of Video (Again)

Twice in one week.  I'm not a shill for Bob Merkel and VoiceZam...but I sure do like his style, innovation, and products.

Today, a quick note to point you to ANOTHER new feature to VoiceZam that Merkel just rolled out...although it's not a big secret, 'cause it's been in Beta for some time.  VIDEO.  Add video vignettes with your voice to your demo player.  If you … [Read More...]

io9.com?

Who’s heard of this site?  It appears to be one of those new-wave online authoring sites like Medium.  I would have no idea it existed but for a Google Alert that flagged an article on io9:  Why Announcers’ Voices Sound So Much Different Than They Used To. The author points to an answer by a […]
