 Just one more blog about blogging, then I’ll get back to the good stuff — voice acting. 

My mind has been working overtime all day today with “new media” potentials.

I even ramped-up my twittering today, and refurbished my feedburner configuration.  I’d forgotten Feedburner is owned by Google.  Sheesh… whatacompany!

Oddly enough, Sunday saw my biggest one-day total of visitors to date:  288.  It’s almost like my concentration on blogging brought more bloggers.  I wish it were that easy.

The materials I picked up at the Blog World and New Media Expo are chock-full of names and URL’s that I wish I had the time to visit — each and every one of them.  I’m going to list just a few here, and provide a link to a .doc that I’ve compiled, with the website/blog for each and every presenter, and all the exhibitors.

I’ll be celebrating my 1 year anniversary of blogging October 1st, 2008.  There’s no question it’s been worth it.  I’ll get into that on a special blog that day.

My point is that the unintended benefit of all the blogging has been a realization that I have something to offer to the world as a writer, not just a voice…and that blogging is perhaps just as important to my Voice Acting career as choosing the right microphone, building a website, and cold-calling.

Below, the short list of personal websites, blogs, or company websites that I recommend you visit for insight into new media, blogging, business networking, building your business, or just plain tech-smart know-how. 

If you want the complete list (3-pages, single-spaced) of sites for all the presenters, and all the exhibitors, click HERE.  It’s just a list.  There are no explainers or names.  In a way, that’s kinda fun, though.  Sorta like internet mining. 

OK, here’s the short list:

Happy mining!

    Wow, Dave! Thanks for compiling this awesome list of resources! I recognize some of the sites. For instance, Sixapart.com produces Movable Type, which is my blog software.
    Atlanta is also a huge convention city. I’ve been to a few things here and find that it can be very beneficial to be the only voice talent at a convention aimed at my target markets!
    In my mind, something even better than your list of resources is your comment:
    “I have something to offer to the world as a writer, not just a voice…and that blogging is perhaps just as important to my Voice Acting career”
    Whether we are writing or speaking into a microphone, we still bring our unique perspective to it. Our perspective is the very thing that differentiates us and is valued by the audience. This statement is true whether the audience is listening to us or reading our printed words.
    Hmmm….maybe I’m getting an idea for a blog entry of my own! 🙂
    Best wishes for continued success, unimagined prosperity and radiant good health!
