I’m trying to find my bloggy voice. Writing to sound as if I am speaking is actually so much harder than I thought it would be. I wrote a blog post this morning (Sunday) and I thought I was pretty happy with it, it made me cry writing it, it gave me a chance to have a few moments of grief which I’d been needing after all the planning that is going on. It was a nice reflection, I had memories pop up from apparently out of nowhere. But then when I reread I wasn’t so sure that it is my voice.
Which makes me think that, that is what I’m working on. My blog will always be honest, but I really am just learning. At work, I have a telephone voice, it’s still me, just a version of me. Does it happen to you that if you speak to someone who speaks really clearly you find yourself speaking a little bit more clearly? Or is that something that just I do? Sometimes it annoys me that I do it, I guess it’s a bit like seeing yourself in a mirror when your out shopping and realizing that you are slouching.(Or is that just me too?)
Anyway, I’m in the process of working out my bloggy voice, one that sounds like me, I just don’t want it to be too phone voicey! I’m also thinking that keeping on writing is how I’m going to do that.
