The Voiceover Boblog

Something fun I recorded this week

Most of the time I try to focus what I post here on ideas and experiences that I hope will be helpful to as many of us in voiceover as I can. But now and then something comes along that is so much fun I want to share it with everyone. Here’s a piece I […]

You catch more flies

The old saying (at least as I was taught it) goes: you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Not that I’m all that interested in catching flies. Still, the idea is worth thinking about. Being grumpy or unpleasant is rarely a good way to grow your business. Of course, you don’t actually need me […]

Just thinking today

It’s been quite a while again since my last post. When I started this blog over 11 years ago, my goal was to write about one of my greatest passions: voiceover work. At the time I still had a corporate job, one that I mostly enjoyed. Nothing is ever completely perfect, of course. I had […]

They tell you that you have a nice voice, right?

I honestly wish I had a nickle for every time I’ve an individual I’ve just met comment about “how often someone says they have a nice voice.” The sound of your voice may eventually have something to do with whether or not you get hired for a specific role or job or project; but it’s […]

There’s a Jeep in Kelley’s future for sure

You may or may not have seen my friend Kelley Buttrick’s post on her site about Jeep. It’s an arresting and original campaign by Kelley to position herself as the logical choice as the next voice for the Jeep brand. Here is just one example from her site: Kelley’s campaign is brilliant on so many […]

An opportunity to learn about long-form narration

The bread and butter part of the voiceover business for many people making a comfortable living doing voiceovers these days is long-form narration of one kind or another. This is where I live and where many of my friends live. So, how do you get a handle on this wide-ranging set of voiceover categories and […]

The time to act

When you learn the answer to a question you have puzzled over for some time, the thing to do is to take action on the answer. Yes, you can always investigate further. (Indeed I would strongly recommend you never just take my word for something. Did into things yourself.) But if you really did find […]

Take a quiz to see if audiobook narration is for you

The third and last of the three videos that Dan O’Day and David H. Lawrence XVII have done in anticipation of their ACX Masterclass for 2016 is now released. It kicks off with a self-assessment quiz for you to take that will help you determine whether or not you should pursue being an audiobook narrator. […]

The single most important part of your sound

By sound, in this post, I mean the sound of your home studio. What is the part of the puzzle that has the greatest effect on your sound? Your microphone? Your pre-amp? Your audio interface or A/D converter? Having a good microphone is important. The same is true for your pre-amp and your audio interface. […]

Golf and voiceover

I might be the world’s worst golfer. If not, I’m certainly in the bottom 10 of all time. Don’t believe me? I once 20 putted a green. Yes, my friends with whom I was playing at the time, were very patient with me. None of this has anything to do with voiceover, of course; but […]
