Oh, The Humility (or lack of it)

Almost exactly a year ago, I blogged about “Status Posting” Sharing or Show-Off?

A subsequent blog noted the responses, mostly in support of my position that it was more show-off than sharing.  “A Rainbow of Responses”.

I understand we all work in relative isolation.  Hey, believe me…no one enjoys the camaraderie between voice actors found in social media more than me.

I know we all work hard and are proud of our work, and love to hear the attaboys for a job well done.  Lord knows the clients don’t offer that…instead they pay us.

But the listing of the day’s accomplishments such as is circled above seems to me….///CUT..!!!!

OK, I won’t say.  I’ll just raise the question…what do YOU think?

(sorry for the crappy resolution of the graphic)  It says:  Recordings completed Thursday the 28th: station liners for Star 106 in The Bahamas, :30 Nalley Infiniti Spot, Mention Social Media Narration Presentation, Amazon Associate Pitch narrative, 6 Radio Opens for Compassion International, and an 8400 word Chemistry Course narration.

Wow. We should all be so lucky. The  person’s identity is shrouded in the captured FaceBook posting.  I’ve never met this person IN person.  I’ve exchanged a couple of emails…run into this person in online forums and discussions…and I know this person to be extremely accomplished, sought-after, experienced, seasoned, highly-professional, knowledgeable, living the VO life we would all aspire to, and a person who shares expertise when asked.  This person has ABSOLUTELY worked hard for achieving this kind of daily VO output.

All the more reason, I just do not get the chest thumping.
