How To Find Your Authentic Blog Voice
Hello there cottage lovelies!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. At the cottage we are loving the tropical weather and Miss LCBL has finally gotten her way after days of begging and is off to the pool with her Dad. So I am here in the peace and quiet while Master LCBL has a nap, to write my little heart out – pure bliss
Today I would like to talk about blogging again, and share my tips on how you can find your authentic blog voice.
I am still working on this, and I think I always will to be honest because I’m always growing and changing. I feel being authentic is one of the most important aspects of blogging and am always checking myself to make sure I’m staying true, and reminding myself to “get out of the way” so my authentic voice can come through loud and clear. Or in other words stop over thinking and write from the heart.
At the beginning I wasn’t quite sure what my authentic voice was, but as I got into the swing of it my voice began to emerge on it’s own.
I’m not sure if it is the same for everyone, I don’t imagine it would be. It would be really great to hear your take on this subject. How did you find your authentic blog voice?
Over time I realised how important it is when blogging to find and use an authentic voice that is uniquely my own. Authenticity to me means being myself and ALWAYS telling the truth, even when my views are wishy washy or even unpopular.
I don’t think people mind when you are unsure about something, as long as you are honest about it. Although in saying that blogging has certainly made me look at how I truly feel about the subjects I write about before I hit the publish button. It has somewhat forced me to take a stand, because for me it is so important to say what I mean and mean what I say to my readers. If I don’t believe what I am saying how will anyone else?
I’ve come to know my expectations from the blogs I read, so I decided to hold myself to the same standards and on the top of my list of bloggy love requirements is honesty, so I am honest with my readers too. This method is just what works for me.
My top 3 tips on how to find your authentic bog voice TODAY are…
1. Write from the heart
2. Don’t be afraid to tell the truth even if its unpopular
3. Work out your standards and stick to them
There you have it my friends. I hope you find this little post helpful, and please don’t hesitate to reply if you have something to add or even if you disagree. I ALWAYS love hearing from you!
Now I’m off to make a cold drink with loads of ice and sit in the sun for a while. This pasty, white chick could use some good ol’ vitamin D in her bones.
I hope you are having a fun weekend
