Too often in the the media industry, saying thank you is over looked. We live in a fast paced world, running around feverishly like Challenge Anneka playing catch up, ticking off our to do lists and looking inwards, instead of outwards.
But there are times when you just need to take 5 minutes to say thank you, and this is one of those times.
My last blog post about the VO industry has had so much love and positive feedback, which has taken me totally by surprise. I’ve received lots of messages from voice overs I know, and plenty I didn’t know, thanking me for the article and the time I took to write it.
Professional voice overs have said they enjoyed the fact I wrote such an honest account of what being a voice talent in 2017 is all about, and what is expected of someone if they want to pursue a career as a VO, and ‘newbies’ have said that hearing the truth and learning what they need to do has been inspiring and given them the ‘kick up the backside’ they’ve needed.
I’ve just checked, and it’s been read over 6300 in just one week. That’s crazy, mind blowing and above and beyond the kind of readership expected.
So- THANK YOU- to all of you who have been in touch, shared the love and shared the blog. To those who have given me such lovely feedback, and to those who stand by my side and share my thoughts and love of this industry.
I have connected with a crazy amount of lovely new people this week the world over thanks to this post, and now have more voice over friends than ever.
To my voice over friends of old, and my voice over friends of new- let’s keep working hard and educating others about our industry so that it remains strong and mighty for many years to come.
